Video: Magpul Introducing Glock Magazines

Magpul has expanded its horizons in 2015, extending its magazine catalog to include a slew of new firearms. But there is one model in particular that has the potential to reach a rather wide swath of the shooting world.

That is because the Wyoming manufacturer’s PMAG 17 GL9 is meant to keep a good part of Glock’s lineup well fed. The 17-round magazine is compatible with all full-sized, compact and sub-compact Glock 9mm pistols, though the magazine will have some overhang in the smaller-framed handguns.

The best part of Magpul’s new product is its price tag. At $15.95, there are few options less expensive. And it’s a fair bet almost none of the cheaper options out there demand the trust Magpul has built over the years.

According to a post on Magpul’s Facebook page, the Glock magazine will feature a new proprietary all-polymer construction. It will also boast a high visibility anti-tilt follower, SS spring, removable floorplate for cleaning, Dot matrix for mag marking, ridged floorplate edges for better grip and a indicator window.

Magpul will begin shipping the PMAG 17 GL9 in March, according to the company's website.
