The long-awaited 7.62x51mm PMAG has finally been given a name and is now in production. At $19.95, Magpul are going to be selling truck loads of these mags.

The PMAG-LR holds 20 rounds of 7.62x51mm or .308 Winchester rounds and is compatible with the following rifles …

  • Mk11 / M110
  • KAC SR25
  • DPMS LR308
  • LMT 7.62 MRP
  • LaRue Tactical OBR
  • POF P-308

It is not compatible with the AR-10, M14/M1A or SCAR-H.

Interesting, SCAR-H compatibility (or incompatibility) is not mentioned. I am not sure what to make of this omission.

Many thanks to for sending me the information.

UPDATE: Thanks to R.A.W and Rex for SCAR-H info.

    I know the Kel-Tec RFB is supposed to be FAL compatible, but can anybody say definitively if these work with it?

    Does anyone know if Magpul is going to create a 7.62x51mm (.308 Winchester) mag that holds 30 rounds? This is for a Masada/Bushmaster ACR. Thanks, Ty
