The 30 Round M3 Magazine is the magazine used in the M3 Submachine Gun.


The M3 was designed in 1942 by the General Motors company. It used a 30 round .45 ACP magazine and had an effective range of 100 yards. The M3 SMG was adopted by the U.S. Army in the 1900's, along with various other allied countries[1].


The M3 magazine looks a lot like that of the TEC-9.  It is grey, long, rectangular, and somewhat shiny. It has the same color as the magazine of the TEC-9, however, the TEC-9 magazine has a higher reflectance than the magazine of the M3. Also, the M3 has a slightly longer magazine than the TEC-9.


  • There was a 9x19mm M3 submachine gun designed as well.  Only 1000 of these were ever made.
  • Due to several similarities, this magazine can be confused with the 20 Round TEC-9 Magazine.
