Glock Factory Mags vs Magpul Glock PMAGs?
We recently started stocking some of the Magpul Glock PMAGS and are getting feedback from our customers. I’m not sure if Glock is happy that Magpul is making mags for them because it looks like they are a winner with our customers. I’m not an expert on the topic but we’ve seen several changes to PMAGS, AR15, AK, and Glock PMAGS and there have been some issues. We are now up to 5 Generations of Glock handguns and there ALWAYS going to be variables. Production variations in magwells, magazines, springs, ect have lead to issues in every firearm manufacturer.
There is a natural trend in our industry away from steel to polymer. It’s all a technological and it’s the future, how many firearms are still sold with wood stocks? The savings of almost $10 or more per magazine is a big selling point and something I wish we would see with Sig Sauer. Sig Mags tend to be in and around $40 per mag while Glock Factory Magazines are usually in and around $30 a mag. The Glock PMAGS are about $15 a mag and from what we are seeing, they are getting good reviews from customers. It’s always good to test magazines and ammunition out in your firearm before you rely on them but there are always variables and sometimes a need for a trip to a gunsmith.
