    This is a pretty simple question. I've got no idea how to snap on the dust covers for my pmag on the bottom of the mag. I don't want to lose the covers and have them sitting in my gun stuffs drawer. Can anyone explain how to snap it on? I've tried but every time I try it feels like it's going to break so I stop.

    I can get it to snap on my EMag though.

    Here are some pics, so you can see if I have the right generation pmag or not. I'm assuming I do. ImageUploadedByFirearms Talk1399520600.655243.jpg ImageUploadedByFirearms Talk1399520624.066040.jpg ImageUploadedByFirearms Talk1399520632.883118.jpg


    Thanks y'all.

    They go on opposite from the top if I remember correctly. Theres one side on the spine of the bottom of the mag that has a little slit in it. That's where the little hook part of the dust cover will catch. Just force it. It's a dust cover. I don't even use them. More of a hassle than anything. Dust/dirt in my mag? I'll take it apart and clean it

    Alright, thanks. And if it doesn't want to snap on, should I just give it a good tap with my hand to try to snap it on?

    I would. If it breaks it breaks. The more expensive thing is the page.

    PMAG value: $12
    Dust Cover: Maybe $1

    In other words...I'd happily risk breaking it.

    I find these dust covers have minimal practical value. They're a nice touch for mags you load and tuck away indeifinitely for that crazy day when all hell breaks loose...but otherwise, they're not terribly useful IMO.

    I usually chuck the dust covers in a box. Mags get stored top down which reduces stuff building up in them.

    And if you are that concerned, ziplok bags are even cheaper:D
