Preview: MagPod for PMAG GEN M3

MagPod is currently working on their PMAG GEN M3 baseplate. They are testing two different prototypes (shown in the image below) centered around their retaining clip design that will allow them to keep their front biased design.

MagPod stated the following regarding the upcoming baseplate:

Even though the M3 PMAG baseplate slides on from the rear, we decided to make our version slide in from the FRONT, which allows us to keep the patented “forward biased” foot that MagPod is known for.

No firm release date yet – we are still evaluating the retaining clip options to see which holds up better to drop testing.

Check out MagPod.

    Knowing nothing of the engineering, but merely looking at the diagrams, I prefer the one piece retainer. Less parts to fiddle around with and/or lose.

    I agree with previous gentlemen, the one piece retainer for attachments like this! I’m glad to see magpod coming out with the M3 version! Finally……

    Regardless of which direction the plates mount, if they would only manufacture them in America, instead of China, then I would try some. I bought a set of the Gen One Magpods, and while they work well, I was sorely dissapointed to discover where they were made, and because of this, I have not purchased any more.
