SGM Tactical Glock Happy Sticks 9mm and 45acp

SGM Tactical brought out their new happy stick mags at Big 3 East. They are heat treated stainless steel lined sleeves. They will be available soon and will retail for $19.99. They have performed flawlessly with a 10ft drop fully loaded. Just like the Glock version, the 9mm will hold 33 rds and they are Gen4 compatible.




Along with 9mm, SGM will be making a 24 rd magazine also $19.99. I have been told it can hold 26 just like the KRISS Mag extensions. These magazines will be slightly altered as they drop free out of the Glock 21 but not out of a KRISS Vector SMG that we tested at the Big 3 East last week. This new magazine is not the same as the one before. The previous magazines were imported Korean magazines made by KCI. These are not those magazines.

    But no .40 SW??? THAT’s the opportunity. Glock doesn’t make anything beyond the 22 rounders. You’d think SGM would see that?

    • We are doing the .40 and .45 magazines but the 9mm is the first to market.

      • what about a 10mm magazine?

  • Anonymoose

    Happy sticks? I like that.

  • G0rdon_Fr33man

    Good price point…

  • Ian Thorne

    I don’t know about you, but my Kriss mags are marked for and hold 30 rounds, not 26

    • Wolfenstein

      Do you know where I could get some of those? NO one has the mag extensions in stock either.

      • sean

        snappy sport senter in kalispell Mt has them on the shelf

        • Wolfenstein

          Damn! Looks like someone got to them before me!

      • Nicholas Chen

        Try He gets them. Not sure if he has any at the moment.

    • Nicholas Chen

      Depends when you bought them. My first early production version came with a thinner gauge spring that allowed 30 rds. But the revised versions have a thicker spring for better feeding. They bottom out early and only allow 26 rds.

      • Ian Thorne

        Mine are new less than a month ago. 30 rounds.

        • The magazines we are doing all have the +2 extension.

  • Dracon1201

    Anything that gives me more options for my Sub2k is a good thing.

    • Squirreltakular

      Completely unnecessary, undeniably awesome. I love my Sub2000.

  • KestrelBike

    The Korean mags that I have had were absolute s*** not even suitable for plinking at the range.

    • Nicks87

      I had a similiar experiences with the Korean mags as well. They caused the only malfunctions any of my Glocks have ever had. I bought two of them and gave them away to a guy at the range that said he could fix them. I dont think he ever did.

  • Wolfenstein

    Even though these are vastly inferior to the Kriss mags, I might buy one because I can’t seem to find any.

    • hit up our facebook page, there is a video of them running in the Kriss.

  • John

    where is my VEPR dbl stack mag SGM cause there aren’t enough glock mag options out there

    two things i find annoying with TFB

    1. why not just put a link to the company in the article – if we are reading it, we are usually interested and yes it’s not hard to go to google and type in the name etc, but it’s even easier to just include the link. (and yes i see the web site on the image of the plastic bag, but not all articles have that info)

    2. going to the companies web site that the “news” article is about and there is ZERO information at all about the product just promoted in the “news” – like it does not even exist – if they are making a press release then geez put something about it on their own web site!

    • Dan

      Why would #2 be TFBs fault?

      • dsd1

        in the 80’s there was a huge trend of computer magazines so desperate for “news” that there was a trend of writing articles about “vaporware” basically things that did not even exist yet, just an idea for it – so at a certain point in reality it was not even news, many products never materialized at all – just hype. eventually there became backlash at the practice.

        it’s not the first article that TFB has put up as news about some “product” that i went to try to buy/find more information that seemed to not even be a real product yet. so it’s the line between is it news or is it just hype being sold?

        • Nicholas Chen

          Sorry about that. But it is “news”. And I did mention that they will be out soon. If they were available now I would have embedded a link to get them.

  • john huscio

    Is there really a pressing need for several billion different aftermarket glock mags?

    • Nicholas Chen

      I like competition. If these guys and ETS can make happy sticks for $20 so could Glock. But they aren’t going to.

  • Yet another 33rd magazine, but still no 141mm or 171mm magazines? (USPSA rules)

  • Mike

    How about a 9mm mag holding 25 rounds. The 33 round mags are fun but too big to be useful. A 25 round mag will stick out about an inch. A 9mm mag the same size as the 22 round .40 mag

  • Don La Rue

    The 26 hole window count new production KCI 45 magazines have worked for me without the problems of their 1st Gen 27 hole window count mags. Some retailers still say they are 27rd when they have a 26 hole window count on back side. They will hold 27rds but it’s a tight fit to get that last round in. Look for the 26 hole magazine….They work.
    All their mags have a 1 piece liner in them now. As for the 30rd 40’s, they do feed better, but they are still using the 9mm dimensioned spring which loses spring tension laterally in the wider 40 SW magazine body. That condition along with the heavier cartridge doesn’t add up to reliability….Their baseplates need improving on the 9mm and 40’s also. Some are tight and some are loose.
