Default Best source for Glock mags...

A recent purchase of a psa 9mm AR has me in search of hi cap Glock mags and I知 seeing prices and availability vary greatly. Never having owned a Glock, I知 really not sure what would be considered a good deal. I知 in the market for a handful and any help pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

I think i also have read in the past about cheap imitations??? If so is there a simple way to tell the difference?

"hi cap Glock mags"?

You mean like this?



The phrase "high capacity magazine" is a fiction invented by the left to demonize inanimate objects & relieve the feeble-minded of a sense of personal responsibility.

Words have meaning. Please don't play antigun word games.

I mean something other than a ten round mag as I am free to own them in my state. Like a 33 round clipazine... for a Glock. And sorry nails. I’m not interested in that ugly contraption.

And he’ll no. I never leave the farm....

CDNN is more than likely your best bet, besides scouring for some lightly used factory mags on gunbroker/local shops/armslist. If you want aftermarket, the only mags ive ever had luck with are the Magpul PMAGs, but they can be a bit finicky with steel case ammo if the mags get dirty.

Im also going to assume that you are looking for specifically glock 33 round stick mags, which in that case Nails is incorrect, as that is higher than standard capacity mags for a the original design (Glock 17 with 17 rounds being the standard) so ignore his ass.

The Glock 18 is a factory model, and the 33 round 9mm stick is made ( by the factory ) for it.

That it fits the G17, G19 and G26 doesn't make it a "high capacity magazine".


The point of me explaining "high capacity magazine" is so you guys can see how the left has influenced you deeply ( and you likely haven't even noticed ).

Every time you use the nonsense phrase "high capacity magazine", you are agreeing with the antigunners.

This is the cheapest routinely found sale.

If you are patient you can get them much cheaper. I've purchased New Glock brand Glock mags as low as $10 each

Depends on if you want Glock brand or 3rd party ones. For Glock brand, get a pack of them from Brownells and hit them with a coupon code and they come out pretty reasonable. I got a bundle of magpul and ETS mags from PSA and they ended up being like $12 each after tax and shipping. There's also botach who runs ETS on sale pretty regularly. Gunmagwarehouse and botach both have the KCI mags pretty cheap.

In my experience, the ETS and magpul have both jammed up and stopped feeding more than once. They're only trustworthy enough for range use. Everybody likes to talk shit about the korean ones, but I havent had a single malfunction out of my KCI mags.

$20 for mags of 15Rds or greater and $30-$33 for 33 Rd 9mm happy sticks. Midway USA, Arms Unlimited has some Magpul for sale for $12 right now, CDNN frequently has them for $20-$22 range including right now.

Also ETS makes good 31 Rd mags and Botach Tactical and Palmetto State Armory usually has them for $15-$18. Good for range, but I would keep at least one or two Glock OEM 33Rd mags and theno aftermarket for range mags.

Welcome to the Files lol!

I have never had an issue with Korean 17rd or 33rd magazines...EVER!

I have a boat load of them and a couple of hand fulls of Glock mags.

Don’t be afraid of the Korean KCI or SGM mags.

All of mine have been perfect.

Korean mags malfunction in my experience. I used to teach a variety of gun classes, and the Korean Glock mags always gave students problems. I suggest sticking with Glock OEM mags. Although, the ETS mags have been running good for me lately....only a few hundred rounds through them though.

For the factory 33's, Brownells is usually good about running 3 pack specials but they're sold out pretty much everywhere right now. Just sign up for notifications.

Primary Arms is advertising magpul glock mags as "too low to show" and I can't get their dang web site to work so that could be a decent price for some range mags.

Shows $11.99 each if you add to cart.

What is the consensus on Magpul mags for G19, gtg or avoid them?

I had multiple magpul glock mags shit the bed on different trips to the range. They just decided they didn't want to push the rounds up. The rounds that were in them were bound up against the inside walls and the follower couldn't push them up. It turned a 19+1 round pistol into a 1 round pistol. Since it happened to more than a couple of them, I do not trust them to work 100%. I'd have a hard time using them in a competition, let alone trust them with my life. I still take them to the range, but don't use them any time I'd be pissed off by them not working.

$11.99+ shipping for magpul mags or watch combat armory and get actual Glock 19 mags for $14.99 with free shipping.

Easy decision for me

True. Didn't see any kind of email notification option for when they're back in stock but will keep an eye out, that's a good deal.
