All I can say is why?
Glock mags are already ridiculously cheap, reliable, durable and available.
Maybe if they made a 140mm and a 170mm magazine for USPSA I'd understand the hype.

ill take a reliable $15 magazine... just saying. It makes sense to do this as many people, including myself, trust pmags and will be willing to at least try an (hopefully reliable) alternative to glock factory magazines. I am not disagreeing with you jody but they are a business and these will sell, most likely very well.

Chuck Haggard
01-15-2015, 12:54 PM
I note they appear to be easier to disassemble, and appear to have a follower designed to allow debris to be shook out of the mag. That might be useful for a guy training on a sandy range or whatever.

Didn't Sean talk about Glock mags having issues with choking in over-the-beach work?

Sounds very interesting. I remember not long ago not being able to get Glock mags because everyone was sold out. Let me know when the beta testing on the Magpul mags is over. However I wouldn't mind doing some beta testing on them myself. When will they be available for sale?

I agree with Jody that they're not necessary, but I also really like most Magpul products. It never hurts having more good options available. If nothing else it's an incentive for Glock to keep theirs cheap.

I have to try these. Normally I would only buy Glock mags, but Magpul and Mecgar are the two mag makes for which I'd make an exception. Now part of that is simply I like cheap (10 mags at $7 savings a mag = close to 300 rounds of 9 mm), but Magpul tends to make stuff that works.

Byron
01-15-2015, 01:44 PM
All I can say is why?

A lot of people buy/own/shoot Glocks.
A ton of Glock mags are sold every year.
Magpul has built a reputation over the years of making high quality mags.
Much of the gun-buying community is cheap.
Between their reputation and cost savings (even if only a few dollars), Magpul can capture parts of a huge market.


Given the above, all I can say is why not? Magpul stands to make a ton of money assuming these things work.

KCI has sold a ton of their Glock mags, even with reports of malfunctions and short service life. These Magpul units will be more expensive than the KCI, less expensive than Glock, but in all likelihood will run better than the KCI mags.

I like that they appear easier to disassemble, and I like the fact that the baseplate slides in the opposite direction of a standard Glock mag. While astronomically unlikely, and probably only a realistic problem with older generation mags, I know more than one person who slammed a Glock mag home at the wrong angle, ripped the baseplate right off the front of the mag, and dumped everything on the ground.

I'll load up on these if they prove to be reliable and sell for $10-$15. For every $10+ dollars I can save on a magazine, that's a box of ammo, or almost another magazine.

I'm plenty set on Glock 9mm mags, but this move is awesome for the market. Distributors and dealers will have to cut their OEM prices to a more reasonable amount, since I would assume street prices having doubled in the last few years has no logical correlation to production costs/changes for the current generation of mags from Glock.

Coupled with the influx of availability once magpul fully ramps up production, I see fat years ahead for Glock shooters. Until Sandy Hook V2, or a political fiasco comes along.

Really?
I have Glock mags that are 10+ years old and they still work fine.
Even if you buy 10 mags a year that's $100 a year you're saving, which is $8.34 a month.
That's not exactly Trump money we're looking at.
Just admit you're a Magpul groupie and stop blowing smoke with the cost savings BS.

Magpul is a hugely successful company because they know how to make a good product at a good price, and they don't sit on their hands. Every year they come out with good stuff and even though I am not interested in most of it, there are a few of their products that I own and am very happy with it. One thing I wish they would come out with is a version of the Sig brace but maybe they have realized that the ship may be sailing on that opportunity.

They will sell thousands of these and make millions of dollars...and there will still be people that buy Glock mags by the truckload. Magpul doesn't really care, they will be making millions of dollars off of their version. :D

Let's say I buy 10 mags at $10 a pop. That is easily a $15 savings over OEM. So $250 right there. I am cheap, I support a family of four, and have two house payments.

Insofar as the groupie thing, I like smart ideas. If a new gun owner can buy more cheap mags, I'm happy. I don't have much of a relationship with Magpul; I did once upon a time when they were courting my brother to run their long range training arm but not any more. I wouldn't consider myself any kind of a groupie except I do gush over them leaving Colorado, designing stuff in the US, and making it here.

Otherwise, I don't understand the groupie thing but perhaps because I've posted two threads about Magpul's recent SHOT offerings. However, I'm used to gun forum assumptions and oddities. Oh well. I'll go change my title now :D

Anyway, if these are cheaper than factory and they run, what's not to like? I have a decent stockpile of G17 mags but one day, somebody will probably try to make it hard for me to get more.

In the meantime...I'll take as many quality mags as I can get so if I can get them cheaper, great.

This is my hope as well. I think I will stick with OEM magazines as I trust them.

At first I was kind of like "meh" and then I started thinking about:

1) How cheap they will be street price
2) They will likely work very well
3) Magpul will hopefully mag some uber-extensions for them +2 to +10 maybe
4) How cheap they will be street price

For range mags, why not.

That was wunderbar. Curious, if you own an HK rifle and put a PMAG in it, is that heresy, treason, or simply being a dirty poor person?

I don't really shoot these "rifle" things you people speak of...so a discussion of them frightens and confuses me. If I had one of the HK rifles it would sit lonely and unused in the gunsafe like my other rifles do now, so I don't think I'm qualified to offer an opinion.

When you next meet with your Magpul overlords please explain to them the pressing need for reliable yet inexpensive 9mm 1911 magazines.

I'd be cool with that, but when I originally bought my P30 pistols I also bought a whole bunch of magazines at the same time and so far I've yet to actually see one break...so I think I'm good on that front. I'm reasonably certain that in the much discussed aftermath of the nuclear holocaust the cockroaches will be crawling all over P30 magazines.

Lemme get this straight... People are upset over potentially good Glock mags at $16 with a possible street price of $10?

If I can buy them for $10 a piece I'll buy 10. I would much rather bounce $10 mags off the concrete when shooting indoors and doing dryfire work and save my OEM mags for carry.

I think $10 is extremely optimistic for a street price on these Magpul units.

Gen3 PMAGS retail for $14.95 and most online vendors seem to sell them for around $14.20 (http://www.44mag.com/product/magpul_pmag_m3_gen_3/magpul_pmag_gen_m3)
Gen2 PMAGS retail for $12.95. Many are selling them for around $11.99 (http://www.cdnnsports.com/ar15-223-30-m2-moe-pmag.html) while some vendors trying to clear them out are selling them around $9 (http://www.midwayusa.com/product/631579/magpul-pmag-m2-moe-magazine-ar-15-223-remington-30-round)

Unless people have info to indicate otherwise, it's hard for me to believe that the Glock mags will have a much cheaper street price than new PMAGS, despite a higher MSRP.

I don't understand the butt hurt. If you shoot enough to wear out Glock mags, the mag cost is a pretty insignificant part of the cost equation. All things being equal, spending less is better. The problem is things are not always equal. Hell I may buy a G19 just to try these ;)

This is a point not to be overlooked. If the Magpul mags work (we will have to wait and see) and if they are easier to disassemble, I will be buying them despite my strong preference for Glock OEM.

That brings up another point. I notice that Glockparts has a new minus connector that they advertise as being the same as OEM but at half the price. Has anyone tried one of these yet?

Magpul, making Glock Mags? I'm kind of surprised they didn't do 1911 mags first. But good for them...I'm no Magpul fanboi, but I like their stuff. This just marks another reason why I should have a Glock. Not because I really want one, or need one, or whatever. But because for ubiquity it just can't be beat.

As for the Magpul haters - Well Chris Costa has something for you...

I selfishly wish they'd started with .40-cal. Glock mags, as they are the dominant weapon in LE. I rely on Magpul 20s and 30s for my 6933 every day. It's also got their far more usable than Colt's furniture and light mount on it.

I carry a Gen2 19 Jimmy Smits autograph model frequently off duty and would love some 9mm Magpuls in 15-rd length as well as ones the same length as the OEM 22-rd .40 mags. Happy sticks are not easy to tote/conceal off duty.

Also hopeful they quickly expand color offerings.

Not ready for a Magpul tattoo yet, but the stuff I use seems to work quite well.

I don't begrudge Gaston his hedonistic dotage, but the nurse should be withheld and his peepee smacked daily until he produces a 19 profile, 42 width 9mm for the volks!

The 9mm is the dominant round in non LEA sells and I think it would be a Rare LEA to adopt a non OEM Glock magazine for Duty use.

I was wondering the same. I loved NYPD Blue and his character Bobby Simone carried one. That was one of the reasons I originally loved the G19 so much. I even had one of the Bianchi holsters (model 81 PDQ) like he used, wish I still had that. Still have the GEN2 19 though.

Bingo! All Gen2 19s are Smits models for that reason. I look a lot more like Andy Sipowicz these days...

And for the person opining agencies don't buy aftermarket mags, guess my 250-sworn agency didn't get memo. We're provided Magpul 30s and can used personal 20s & 30s and Surefire 60s with our issued Colt's carbines and approved personal guns.

Given the variety of individual state magazine capacity limits, it would be slick if they were designed so they could be easily neutered to any desired capacity, without compromising function.

Explain the difference between aftermarket pistol and rifle mags from an agency purchase perspective, please.

If their rifle mags are good enough for many LE agencies and our military branches, why not let instructors test the mags and determine if they're Service-worthy? I know I prefer P-Mags to factory Colt aluminums these days.

I'll get a couple of the G-17 versions for my ol'19 and see how they work.

And as the owner of an HK USP Compact .45, I too pray they jump into that pool. Don't like $54.95 a mag a bit.

What JBP said. Commercial 9mm sales outrun LE/gov .40 sales by a wide margin. The continuing and increasing migration of LE back to 9mm will also slow the .40 down. Add now the LE norm of 3 OEM mags per officer, rotated only when the guns are rotated.

Most agencies won't put much thought into it. The guns they buy ship with three OEM mags, and that's good enough for most administrators, trainers, and purchasing agents.

So I got a chance to play with these at the Great American Outdoors Show in PA a few weeks ago. They seem very nice as you'd expect. A few interesting things I was told chatting with the Magpul guy there:

1) They are all polymer, no metal lining. They will still drop free when loaded (did not test this, frowned upon to load up guns, weird). I was told they had to develop a new polymer blend in order to accomplish this; indeed, they feel quite different than the polymer in PMAGs, more similar to injection molded plastic like a Safariland holster. He assured me they did a ton of testing, but I would certainly want to test them a lot and in different temperatures before trusting them.

2) I asked why they made G17 mags, and he said they wanted to start with the most common gun and then planned on branching out (with these fitting in G19s as well they were a natural starting point). He mentioned G19 mags would probably be next, but it seems crazy to me not to go to something like the P30 mag once the concept is proven out. I got the distinct impression that the long term play is to cover all the popular guns. He told me they have no plans on supporting restricted-capacity states, but I wouldn't read too much into that, as I think that market is pretty attractive too.

Also the M700 stock looks sweeeeeet.

02-27-2015, 04:48 PM
I think replacing the metal mags in the P30/VP9 or the MP will end up costing capacity. Even so I'd gladly take a readily available $20 VP9 mag with a 10 round cap.

After Initiative 594(universal background checks) passed a few months back here in WA state, I was reminded just how swiftly things can change. I have dozens of OEM 9mm Glock mags and more KCIs than I like to admit but I never feel like I have enough. We, as shooters, could very well be one more school shooting or mall rampage away from losing the right to acquire new high capacity magazines; I want to have enough to last me "forever"- whatever that is. So I'll continue to stockpile 9mm Glock mags and 20, 30, and 40 round Pmags. I jumped on an email yesterday about a first come, first serve preorder for the Magpul/Glock mags so I should get my first dozen before they hit store shelves. If they meet expectations I'll gladly buy a bunch more when they go on sale. I doubt I'll ever have a need for all of them but they'll be good bartering material for future panics and scares.

Well, apparently the first production run is problematic, but Magpul is on the case and fixing the problem.

Soldier Systems: Magpul’s New GLOCK Mags Fail In Some Models – Magpul Mans Up, Acknowledges Issues, Vows To Replace Bad Mags (http://soldiersystems.net/2015/04/16/magpuls-new-glock-mags-fail-in-some-models-magpul-mans-up-acknowledges-issues-vows-to-replace-bad-mags/)

OK we screwed up.

After initial release of the Glock PMAG 17 GL9 a few days ago we started seeing random issues of failure to feed with the new magazine in other Glock models, primarily the Glock 19 and 26. Of all the challenges of building a Glock magazine with a single new composite, issues like drop free, impact strength and feed lip retention were foremost on our mind. The failure to feed came as a bit of a surprise to us and we immediately headed out to the range to investigate.

In short order we found the problem. Without getting into technical details, some small, but critical geometry changes did not make it into the initial production molds. We should have caught this but no failures showed up on our factory guns during live fire testing and flaws in our internal processes of checks/balances did not flag the oversight as it should.

So as I said before, we screwed up and here is what we are going to do about it.

Molds are being updated with the correct geometry as we speak and a replacement magazine body with the correct geometry should be available by May 4th, 2015. These will be date coded 5/15 or later and will replace any magazine bodies in service of earlier manufacture. Just use your existing spring, follower, and floor plate with the new body.

-If you purchased your magazines direct from Magpul, Brownells or Midway, you do not need to do anything, replacement magazine bodies for the magazines ordered (1 for 1) will be shipped to you automatically.
-If you purchased your magazines from a gun store, replacement bodies will be sent out to the store in question for you to pick up.
-If neither of the above works for you then Magpul customer service will handle the replacement directly.
In short, we are updating ALL of the affected magazines released as quick as we possibly can.

Well, I'm impressed. I received the new magazine bodies today. Didn't have to do a thing - Magpul and DSG shipped the replacement parts out based on my original order, less than a month after Magpul originally acknowledged the problem in my above post. Magpul turned a potential dud release into a positive customer service experience...more than a few manufacturers could take a lesson from how Magpul handled this issue.

While waiting for the replacement parts, I took my original Magpul magazines to the range for a session with my Glock 17 GEN4 and AAC Ti-Rant 9mm suppressor. No issues to report.

Magpul is one company that really seems to get the importance of reputation. Anyone can make a mistake--but fixing it and making the customers whole turns what could have been a problem into an additional enhancement of a company's reputation.

Was at an event in Gilbert, AZ and saw that the Gilbert PD Officer working off-duty traffic control was carrying PMAGs for his G17, so at least one mid-sized department is approving these for use

I've put about 300ish rounds through 1 15 round PMAG and 1 17 round PMAG. I have yet to experience any issues. Low round count, sure. But it's another data point. I'll update again when I have more rounds through them and/or encounter any issues.

Or he bought them at the police supply store because they were cheaper and nobody has told him he couldn't use them. We only allow factory magazines and mag accessories/extensions at work. However that does not stop our guys from buying Aftermarket extensions and even those cheap crappy Korean Glock magazines
.
Nothing against the Magpul mags, I bought one to start testing as a range training and IDPA Mag in September of last year. It is still going strong including use as a loaner at work. Satisfied enough that I bought five more.

I've been using two 17 rounders as range/practice mags. I'm constantly seeing failures to lock the slide back on empty that don't happen with factory mags. I'm talking almost every mag.

Are those some of the early mags that they first put out? Have you tried calling Magpul to see if they'll replace them?

I haven't read this whole thread so I apologize if this has already been answered, but how can I tell if my mags are the older version? The, I assume, date code on mine is 7/15.

anything after 05/15 is supposed to be GTG. Call MagPul and they will make it right.

I have 6 17rounders and 3 15's. Probably around 500 rounds through them combined. I took my three newly purchased 17s to the range and had one mag really give me fits. Kept getting failure to feeds. It happened three times in about 20 rds so I set it aside. All the others have been flawless.

I picked up one the other day on a whim. I ran 150 rounds through it yesterday without any issues. At half the price of gunstore Glock mags, I'll probably pick one up here and there as impulse purchases.

I may try picking up some for strictly range use, but for a few bucks more mine as well just get factory mags which are know to work and have a long track record of reliability.

I would be very interested if Magpul made for national 17/19 sized mags, with ten round capacity.

Primary Arms has them on sale so I just picked a few up to use in IDPA. For that price it can't hurt to have a few extra mags.

Not sure which thread to put this in, so here goes. In the last week I have had four of my Magpul Glock mags take a dump on me. It appears to be spring related. The follower will stay down in a stuck position, and the rounds have no upward push to them. It is tough to say how many rounds are on the mags as I have a pretty big rotation of practice mags. (30ish at a time) I am currently shooting 300 rounds a week and the mags date from Dec 0f 2015, and March 04 2016. I guess I will take them apart and clean them up and see what I can see.

A lot of people need a 10 round Glock magazine that works for the 17, 19, 22, 23

Given how easy they are to take apart to clean, that is probably a good idea. I only have one Magpul Glock magazine, but I have not had any issues with it so far.
