New ETS Mags And Loader | SHOT 2017

ETS has made quite a splash with their transparent polymer Glock magazines. Now they are going to make magazines for the Glock 43 and Glock 42.

They will be available in 12rd, 8rd and 6 rd mags. For both the .380 G42 and 9mm G43. The prototypes below are clear but when production comes they will be smoke like the normal Glock magazines. The red follower unfortunately will also be tossed out for black followers. It is just red here for easier identification for the ETS team.

More surprising than that are the MP5 magazines they are going to make. It will be offered in standard 30rd, 20rd and 10 rd mags. Price is a bit high at $40 per magazine. They worked at solving the issues with the MKE Polymer magazines. They found that the loose tolerances of the mag and mag well fit would cause rapid wear of the plastic mag catch notch in the side of the magazine.  So they beefed up the polymer to fit better and take out as much play as possible.

ETS also had their prototype pistol magazine loader. It scoops up 10 rds from a box of ammo and you push the syringe grip to load the rounds into the pistol magazine. I could see this really helping out in USPSA competitions since it is one swift movement to feed all the ammo and reload the magazine.

The mag loader is expected to retail for $49.99. ETS is looking forward to mid-late march for release.  That is the projected date for the magazines and loader to be released to the public.

    Is the 8 round G43 mag flush fit?

    • Ben Pottinger

      I doubt it. My +2 extensions add about a half inch to the grip length. I wouldn’t mind one of the 12 rounders as a “backup” mag for the G43 if its reliable. Once your going for a reload it doesn’t much matter if it sticks out the bottom of the gun!

      Those mp5 mags look great. I might have to pick one or two up just for cool factor of seeing the ammo in it. It should be a great fit with the Binary trigger coming out this year!!

    MP5 mags but no Scorpion Evo???

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Why would they come out with Evo mags which are already $15-20? A good MP5 magazine is $80 or so. Sometimes $60 of you can get them.

    Still no 10mm or .45 mags… 🙁

    • Hellbilly

      A 20+ round 10mm Glock magazine would be the cat’s meow since factory 10- and 15-rounders are the only options out there.

    Been seeing online retailers putting the street price around $25. But of course none have stock and not sure when they will be in stock. Only time will tell if these hold up, but at these prices it is worth a look.
