ETS Releases new Glock 42 and 43 Magazines

ETS Glock mags

If you’ve ever seen the translucent polymer AR-15 magazines that couple together or the equally opaque Glock mags, you’ve seen some of ETS’ products. Built from high-impact, translucent polymer, these mags allow shooters to quickly check remaining stores of ammo in a magazine at a glance.

These magazines have been tremendously popular, and on the heels of this success, ETS has released its own take on the Glock 42 and 43 magazines. More about the new ETS Glock mags in the press release below.

For Immediate Release

May 26, 2017: The ETS Group is proud to announce the release of their new line of 42 and 43 Glock®clear polymer magazine models. All ETS Glock 42 and 43 magazine models are single stack and each standard model holds 7 rounds, as opposed to the 6 rounds standard Glock factory magazines hold. Also available are ETS’s 9 and 12 round versions, an industry first! ETS’s GLK-42-9 and GLK-43-9 models are only .75 inches longer than the standard 7-round magazine and allow for a better grip and control of the handgun. ETS’s clear polymer magazines feature extreme impact resistance so they won’t crack when dropped. The durable construction ensures the feed lips won’t spread when fully loaded and stored.

This is great news for shooters who want more options than the standard OEM magazines, but given how reliable these mags are, I can’t help but wonder, ‘why?’ Sure, they offer some increase to capacity, but for carry guns, reliability trumps capacity. Better to have a 5-round mag that always works, than a finicky extended one.
