Will we see it at SHOT Show 2021? AR-15 magazines - XTech Tactical Speedmag

SHOT Show 2021 On Demand is in full swing, so here’s the rundown on the new gun magazines — and mag accessories — for 2021. This is a work in progress, so check back in throughout the week to see the updates.

⊕ Magpul PMAG® 20 AR 300 B GEN M3, 300 BLK

SHOT Show 2021: Magpul PMAG 20 AR 300 B GEN M3, 300 BLK

The PMAG 20 AR 300 B GEN M3 is a purpose-built magazine for rifles chambered in .300 Blackout (300 BLK). Similar in every way to the Magpul PMAG 30 AR 300 B, the PMAG 20 is more compact for increased maneuverability and creates a more concealable package for use in small format firearms.

 

⊕ Magpul PMAG D-50 Magazines for Glock and MP5 — Drums!

Both of these mags take 50 rounds of 9x19mm Parabellum.

Gotta see this at SHOT Show On Demand, Magpul's new D-50 drum magazines for HK94/MP5 large formate pistols and PCCs, and D-50 GL9 drum magazine for double-stack 9mm GLOCK handguns.

Left: the PMAG D-50 MP – HK94/MP5 for, well, HK94/MP5 large-format pistols and pistol caliber carbines. Right: PMAG D-50 GL9 for double-stack 9mm GLOCK handguns.

⊕ Magpul PMAG 10/30 Gen M3

Magpul PMAG 10/30 AR/M$ Gen M3 mags for states with magazine capacity limits.

Magpul says they made these magazines “because there really are millions of gun owners who can’t enjoy the thrill (or security) of a 30-round PMAG, so we made the next best thing. It’s a 10-round magazine that meets local regulations but keeps the form factor of our PMAG 30 AR/M4 GEN M3 so you can avoid interference from “The Man” and fit them in your magazine pouch.”

 

⊕ XTECH Speedmag

XTech Tactical Speedmag — quick loading AR-15 magazines are made with a proprietary polymer. They tell us this helps prevent deformation from leaving your magazine loaded. There’s also a proprietary follower. And XTech says this makes loading your magazine “as simple as pulling the follower collar down several inches and dropping the rounds into the magazine.”

New Magazine Loaders Seen at SHOT Show 2021

 

⊕ NcStar AK Magazine Speed Loader

The company says it works with AK 10 round stripper clips or you can load 10 loose cartridges into the tray. The side tray door is secured with a spring-loaded latch. When the Speed Loader is loaded up with 10 rounds, insert the tethered T-handle pushrod into the top of the loader and push the cartridges into the magazine. Load up another 10 cartridges until the magazine is at capacity. The T-handle push rod has a magnet on the T-handle that retains the empty stripper clip for easy removal. The end of the T-handle push rod will also strip the cartridges from the feed lips of a loaded magazine. The handle is tethered to the Speed Loader body with a blue lanyard.

NcSTAR AK Magazine speed loader

NcStar‘s new AK Magazine Speed Loader works with metal, bakelite, and polymer magazines.  This Speed Loader is constructed of polymer and aluminum and is 9.25” long.

 

New Magazine Accessories

 

⊕ Concealment Express Horizontal OWB KYDEX Mag Holster

According to Concealment Express, this ambidextrous, horizontal OWB KYDEX Magazine Holster is the most comfortable way to carry your spare mag, especially for those that are on the heavier side. By orienting the mag horizontally, you can always carry your spare mag but never feel that it is there. This mag holster is extremely versatile with mounting holes on both sides to accommodate your preferred carry position for OWB Carry and either Right Hand or Left Hand Draw.
