The PTS®Enhanced Polymer Magazine, or EPM for short, is a new type of Mid-capacityPolymer Magazine for AEGs. The EPM is a truly unique AEG magazine, inside andout. Externally it features a Dupont Zytel Polymer shell, with recessed panelsfor better grip, and unique magazine well guides that reduce snagging when themagazine is drawn from and reinserted into pouches.
The bulletwindow with the fake 556 rounds isn't just for show. When the magazine is fullyloaded, at the base of the see-through bullet window, an orange follower comesinto view. This is a remarkable design feature unique to the EPM as it allowsthe end user to pick up any EPM magazine and immediately know if the magazineis filled to capacity and ready to go. It also acts a visual indicator for theuser to known when to stop loading the magazine.
Anothernotable feature of the magazine is the base plate. The bottom of the base platehas been designed with an angled surface and a rubber over-mold on the lowerface. This combination of features allows the end user to rest the gun on anyflat shooting platform and have more surface contact with better traction andtherefore greater stability. The angled surface is minimized to the point thatit is functional, yet still comfortable in the hand when drawn from pouches andalso not inhibit the closure of flaps on closed top magazine pouches. The baseplate has also been designed with a ribbed ledge which promotes easierextraction of the magazine from deep magazine pouches and can help the end userwith correctly indexing the magazine.
This mid capacity AEG magazine holds 150rounds with the same reliability that all PTS magazines have long been famousfor. It is compatible with Version 2 based M4 AEGs by TM, KWA, PTS PDR-C, PTSERG series, PTS Masada, G&P, the VFC 416, the CA 416 and the AMOEBA AMVariants.
