Hexmag LLC just announced it’s expanding its polymer magazine line to include pistols mags for Glock handguns.
These robust new mags weigh 1.4 ounces and feature a 17-round capacity for the Glock Model 17 and are also compatible with Glock 17C, G26, G34 and G17L models, according to a recent press release.
Hexmag will follow launch of the 17-round magazine with a 10-round version for California residents and a 30-round version for those who need a super-high capacity magazine, the release states.
They are constructed of Hexmag's high-impact UV stabilized PolyHex2 Advanced Composite. The magazine company uses a proprietary Fusiform heat-treated stainless steel spring set at OEM tension for reliable feeding even after long-term storage when kept fully loaded, according to the release.
They will be available in either Black or Flat Dark Earth matte finish and come with its patented gripping surface and a textured front-side "training" pattern for fast and easy indexing when reloading, according to the release.
The new pistol magazines also feature Hexmag's industry-first pistol identification system, the HexID Color Identification System perfected on its AR-15/AR-10 magazines, the release states. The base plate can be easily removed without tools and the follower and base latch plate color changed to designate which ammunition/bullet is in the magazine for quick identification.
"We listened closely to the market and saw the need for an alternative polymer Glock compatible magazine that was affordable, lightweight and as tough as our AR-15 and AR-10 magazines,” said Dave Smith, Hexmag's marketing director.
Hexmag Glock mags will be available this spring and retail for $16.99 -- about a buck more expensive than the $15.95 price tag on Magpul’s PMAG for the Glock 17.
