    Are they at the same site or different sites? Could just be a different way of describing them...

    About the only difference in PMags is some have windows that give you a estimate of how much ammo you have remains, and others don't. There are some minor differences between the first and second generation of Pmags, but not enough to get worked up over.

    We won't talk about EMags.;)

    Yes, a PMag should work in your rifle.

    Yeah. The only difference is one is windowed and the other isn't.

    Cheaper than Dirt's product descriptions sometimes leave a little bit to be desired. FWIW, you can get brand new G.I. spec 30 round magazines, with Magpul Enhanced followers, from Bravo Company for about $9.00. Just as reliable as the Pmags - maybe more so - at considerably less.

    Personally I like the Magpuls with the winows and the cap that you can put on the loaded mag to release the tension on the mag lips. Not a bad thing to have.

    all pmags are for 5.56 but equally fit the .223 because its basically the same dimension casing.

    there are windowed mags showing rounds left in mag, or solid bodied.

    i'm pretty sure all pmags now have the tension release cap included.

    i am a big fan of all the magpul products.

    I have a couple of the the PMags. Pretty nice. Feeds smoothly, nice the cover too. Only thing that is a minor issue, is that they are not as easy to load as the Tapco's are. It seems the top is designed a little different and so you have to "adjust" the previous round a little cuz the bullet tip catches a little when loading. Tapco's...no problems at all.
