Coming from Magpul in Spring 2024 is the TMAG 30. A translucent magazine to easily see round type and count.

From Magpul:

A second void we found in the magazine market was the concept of a translucent magazine. We never want to lower our standards of reliability and quality – which is why we pride ourselves on our GEN M3 magazines – just to simply meet a demand in the market.


With those benchmarks of quality as our guide, we never made a translucent magazine because we couldn’t make one that could match GEN M3 protocols.


Until now.

The TMAG – a new line of translucent magazines made with an Olive Drap Translucent material – is the first translucent magazine that meets our GEN M3 standards, which has been the bar for our magazines for years.


After a decade in development, the TMAG is the newest addition to our STANAG-compatible magazines and allow shooters to visibly verify various ammunition types as well as round count. Externally, ribbed front and rear straps provide a textured surface to securely grip the TMAG during magazine changes, yet the sides are left smooth to ensure visibility.

Meeting our GEN M3 standards, the TMAG uses a similar internal geometry as our PMAG. The four-way, anti-tilt follower is paired with a durable USGI-spec, stainless-steel spring with a painted coil, which maintains the “gas gauge” capability from the “Window” magazine product line.


The magazine body is clearly marked to show approximate round counts when inserted in a magazine well, and the paint-pen dot matrix allows for aftermarket markings to be applied by shooters. The TMAG’s low-profile floor plate also allows for compatibility with the full line of Magpul floor-plate accessories. Equally important, while we made the TMAG a product with no compromises in quality, we still made it affordable.
