    Magpul is very aware. I've been involved with this problem since 2012. You need to look for the nubs inside the feedlips. They were added during 2015. All sand and MCT 30s will have them. If you want to be safe, make sure you buy black Gen M3 30s from 2016 or newer. Slide the mag up in the package and you can read the date stamp.

    I was a very early adopter of the Gen M3s and I've been sticking (and gone around and around) with Magpul on these mags, but they are solid now. I have enough faith in them now that I shoot Gen M3 30s exclusively, and it comes after a long relationship with Okay/Colt mags and a very successful four years with MRev Pmags.

    I don't work for Magpul in any capacity.

    So, I'm just a slow cud chewer here. Should I contact Magpul at some point and see about getting these M2 and M3 mags without that extra ridge exchanged? I have a bunch in storage, and would hate for them to be a problem when I can finally use them.

    Yes. Worth a try.

    The M2 mags have never had the nubs. Only the 30 round Gen M3.

    Interested to know which flavors you have and wind up getting "replaced."

    Have I misunderstood something (again)?

    I took an unused PMag out of its wrapping, verified that the mold code is 22, fully loaded it, and then took a plastic tool and gently (emphasis on the word gently)tried to push the bullet on the second round upwards. And this is the end result:

    There is extra molding in the magazine body, but just from trying to lift the bullet upwards it doesn't appear to stop it in any way.

    (Yes, throwing the magazine around would probably be a more realistic test. But that is expensive ammo in that magazine, and I am unwilling to beat up one of my expensive PMags from my limited supply unless I have a very good reason to... So I'm hoping some of you who live in the land of unlimited cheap magazines do the more destructive testing.)
