    Glock mags are already a staple product.
    I guess I don't have the money you do so I like the idea of cheap and good 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.

    Any amount saved is more money for ammo and training.

    Generally I see Glock factory G17 mags at $20-25. I'd happily pay $15 for a reliable alternative for matches, etc.

    I also happen to like the orange follower.

    I'll bet these sell for $10.

    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.
