What is the difference between a Gen 2 and Gen 3 Pmag?
The Gen 2 baseplate is a good bit wider than the Gen 3 P-MAGs. This slimmer baseplate of the Gen 3 magazines make it easier to fit mags in a double magazine pouch. The wider Gen 2 baseplate makes the magazine easier to grab in my opinion, especially from a belt mag pouch.
