Overview of the Magpul M2 PMAG w/ Window
The MAG570 MOE PMAG from Magpul is one of the finest AR-15 magazines that you can buy. To put it simply, it’s priced very competitively and it does everything you need it to do. This Magpul PMAG is a 30 round, polymer constructed magazine, designed to function in the AR-15, as well as several other platforms.
The most notable feature about the MAG570 PMAG as compared to the MAG571 Magpul PMAG is that this model features a viewing window. This window allows the user to check the status of their ammunition in the magazine. The can be a nice administrative feature have a couple magazines laying around and just want to check how full they are, or if you are shooting and need to look down real quick to see how many rounds you have left before empty.
As with several other products from Magpul, the PMAG is primarily made from polymer. This polymer construction is beneficial for two main reasons. First, it is extremely light. Second, the polymer makes these PMAGs extremely durable. PMAGs have been subjected to several manufacturer, amateur and impromptu torture tests. By all accounts the PMAG is among the most durable AR-15 magazine on the planet.
Going along with this theme of durability, Magpul chose to use a stainless steel spring. Stainless steel offers far superior corrosion resistance compared to traditional spring material, chrome-silicon spring steel.
Available as an optional, you can choose to buy an impact/dust cover for the M2 PMAGs. These dust covers are great for keeping dust out during long term storage, or for keeping out all sorts of crud while trekking through the field. Additionally, in the event that you drop your magazines, the cover can also serve to offer some form of protection for your rounds.
