That's highly irregular. The M3 PMAgs should all come with dust covers, and the Magpul MOE mags do not.

I agree. I called brownells... they told me they no longer come with covers, even though their website still said they did. They have promised me covers when they become available again, but swore they would correct their website that day. It still says "included dustcover" to this very day.

Whichever you can get more of for less money quicker. Functionally they are going to be the same for 99% of users.

Agreed - just received a fresh order of Gen 3s this week and all had the covers...

Now this is starting to piss me off... not at you guys, but at Magpul. Or Brownells... or both.

I know, right?

I called Magpul as soon as I got them. They told me to call my supplier - in this case, Brownells. In Brownells defense, they DID say they would send me covers when they got covers... but that's been a while.

$14.20 for Gen 3

https://www.primaryarms.com/MAGPUL_P...mag557-blk.htm

They come in stock every few weeks or so as do the MOEs... I placed an order on the 13th and the 8th - they really do come up pretty frequently.

I think I have picked up about 10 Gen 3s and 15 Gen 2s by now... More than I'll need in my lifetime.

No need to ever over pay.

I LOVE Primary....

I got the windowed ones for $18 apiece... I think I did OK, but no covers. In the SEALED PACKAGE from Magpul. I'm beginning to think this was just a Friday afternoon f-up.

Thats so odd.

My Gen 3s from 4/8 & 4/13 had covers...

Actually, im going to double check right now.

EDIT: Yup - all my Gen 3s have covers.

I won an auction on GB for 10 M3 pmags with dust covers. I paid a little more than I wanted, but I wanted the newer ones just to have something new and different...that and the thought of them stopping production came to mind. In any case, 4 of the 10 mags I got were M2s with no dust covers. Seller left me positive feedback when he got my payment, but I was rather angry that I didn't get what I paid for. He told me to return them and he will refund my money. He ran out of M3s and only had M2s. So, he ended up sending me 4 extra M2s for his error. They both work the same, IMHO. So I think I came out ahead on that deal.

While I have no problem with the M3, I've been stocking up on M2s as they're cheaper. I got 4 unwindowed on Monday from primary arms, and I have 6 windowed on the way that I ordered today from them.

Sent from the USS Sulaco.

I have some Gen 3 and Gen 2. I like them both equally, and see little difference. And the 3's came with the dust covers, but not the 2's.

Like, generation 2, generation 3.

MOE = magpul original equipment. In the context of the PMAG lineup, MOE = does not come with dust/impact cover.

You could just check out the product info at their website

http://store.magpul.com/category/PMAG

MOE = Magpul Original Equipment, the Gen2 PMag that now come with most AR's as original equipment, along with the Magpul furniture.

The case of 100 Gen2's I received from Magpul a month ago did come with covers.
The only PMags I have that did not come with covers are the ones that came with my rifles from the factory.
