Magwell vs. Magpul

Recommended Posts

As a newbie I may be missing something here but my M3 Magpul mags will not seat in my Lancer magwell.  Same with the Magpul 60 round drum.  Obviously I could just remove the magwell but is there another AR magwell out there that does not require later generation Magpul mags to be "modfied" to seat?

I bought a very nice magwell from a dude on Instagram who 3D prints them. No interference issues with any mag I've ever tried with it. It's a plastic clamshell design which does not use a grub screw to tighten down, so it does not mar the finish of your lower receiver. PM me and I can pass on his info to you if you're interested.

The Gen 3 Magpul mags have "limiter" projections on the rear corners of the magazines. They don't seat in my older Noveske lower either. Just file them down till everything seats and locks in properly.

Gen 2 mags are dirt cheap. Stock up on em and you'll have no worries.

No D60 in Gen 2.

All good answers, thank you. For now I'll stick with my ground-off M3s and decide if having the D60 is worth not having a magwell.

If you're running a D60, I can't imagine you'll ever need a magwell.

That's true, I could just leave it in permanently and open the upper to reload the D60 from the top, California-style.

Thank you sir. Of course, I've never seen the need for a magwell on a .223 rifle anyways.
