Jagemann Launches New Glock Magazines

The Glock has quickly become the “AR-15” of the handgun world. Over the last few years, and especially this last year, companies have been flocking to offer products for the platform including slides, barrels, triggers, frames, and magazines. Perhaps most pronounced this year from SHOT is the additional companies getting into the Glock magazine game, this time including Jagemann.

Previously, magazines have typically been limited to black, green, and FDE, but Jagemann has blown past this with offering a swath of colors including Tiffany Blue, Pink, Red, Brown, Green, and Grey (on top of the standard Black).

Compared to OEM, the magazines are completely polymer and add various features standard that have typically been aftermarket add-ons. New features include extended base pad (+1 compared to stock), new feed lip geometries, “optimized” springs, tighter tolerances, and a thumb notch to ease reloading. (While MagLuLa’s are great, the last is a welcome addition).

If anything, I truly appreciate the truth-in-marketing breaking away from “military grade” and going with “automotive grade” which is, in my experience, better.

Pricing is live around $19.99 for both Glock 17 and Glock 19 models. For now, it looks like only Brown and Black have made it to the wild, but the other colors will be coming quickly.

 

Feature Benefits
Ease of disassembly Improved speed of cleaning while making the task easier
Extended Base Pad Quicker and more responsive loading

Optimized spring power Dependable feeding without stalling slide
Polymer material Doesn’t scratch/scrape on anodized and coated 17 frames
Reinforced automotive-grade engineered resin Increased strength and stability
Revamped feed lip geometry More time-efficient and reliable feeding
Self-lubrication Consistent performance over time
Thumb Notch Decreased loading time while making the task easier
Tighter Tolerances Increased durability and improves magazine life
Usability Easy to use and sized to operate right out of the box

    Why are there suddenly so many glock magazines coming out?

    • PK

      Suddenly, nothing. That’s like asking why there are so many AR compatible mags out there, because the market is huge and increasing. Just about everyone sells AR, 10/22, and Glock mags and accessories, both factory and aftermarket.

    • john huscio

      Because Mecgar doesn’t make aftermarket Glock mags even though the market is there and has been for a couple decades. I don’t know why it took this long for the floodgates to open…..

      • Nick

        I’m surprised that they haven’t come out with an increased capacity flush fit metal mag. One would think that you could increase the volume inside the magazine by using thinner steel/aluminum instead of polymer and Mecgar could work their voodoo and fit another round or two in there.

    • PieForYourThoughts

      Most popular handgun on the planet. Everyone want’s a slice of that pie.

  • PK

    I’m still waiting for their black nickel cases with bated breath. A couple of the calibers listed at wholesalers really interested me, and that was a number of months ago now. I hope there’s no delay on the colored mags as there apparently has been with some of the cases, the products seem to be well liked by those that have handled them.

  • KN1719

    I was given a 43 and a 19 magazine at SHOT, they feel fantastic. Solid locking into place and they drop free (almost ejecting in feeling). Polymer quality seems better than that of Magpul, and lighter than ETS. They are noticeably smoother in and out of the magwell. Loading was also not a problem right from the start. Have not had the chance to shoot them yet, but they look and feel promising.

    • ostiariusalpha

      “Polymer quality seems better than that of Magpul…”

      Polymer quality is not something you judge by look or feel. You have to drop it, crush it, freeze it, and slather it with DEET. These Jagemann mags might just be the bee’s knees, but there better be something more that a once-over before any talk about polymer quality.

      • KN1719

        I agree with you. Hence why the word “seems” was used. Extended use will tell if they are up to par beyond what is already out there in the realm of polymer magazines. Just initial observations.

  • LGonDISQUS

    Tiffany blue ♡ Time to go get a 42 frame duracoated, and a stainless slide. ???

    Random – are there any “all metal” or close to that Glock mags?

  • Phillip Cooper

    Let me see.. $13 for a proven commodity, the PMAG… or $20 for this company’s new product which noone has heard of before, using “improved feed lip profile”.. which just sounds like “problem waiting to happen” to me.

    The Glock mag standard feed profile works, and works well. There is nothing to gain from improving it.

    Pass.

    • john huscio

      Magpul glock mags are far from proven. I’ve seen multiple malfunctions with a couple a freind had at the range…..seems to be getting mixed reviews on various boards too…

      Then again ETS mags have worked well for me but some have had bad experiences with those as well…..

      Anyway, more choice is better.

      • Phillip Cooper

        Mine work just fine. _shrugs_

        • Sunshine_Shooter

          That what “mixed reviews” means. From what I’ve seen, most people have no issues with them whatever, but a few people get lemons.

    • koolhed

      If you’re paying more than $20 for factory Glock mags, you’re not trying.

      • Phillip Cooper

        Why would I, I can pay $13 for the PMAG and get a better product.

  • Mmmtacos

    Some highlights of the magazines:

    “Eliminates jamming and short feeding”
    “Dependable feeding without stalling slide”
    “More time-efficient and reliable feeding”
    “Consistent performance over time”

    Yes, I know it’s marketing, but it’s just funny to me because it makes it sound like Glock mags (and by extension ETS and Magpul) seem to have various reliability issues.

    Yet the very reason people flock to Glock (ha!) is because of it’s legendary reliability and “perfection”.

    Personally, I’ve never had an issue with Glock mags, not once in untold thousands of rounds and ten years. Haven’t had ETS (yet) and Magpul mags when they were new weren’t allow the slide to lock back, but that seemed like it went away quickly.

    • Anonymoose

      I think they’re saying that their mags are better compared to the various crappy aftermarket all-plastic imported mags of days gone by, like the one that saved Gabby Giffords from getting double-tapped and dying.

  • Keiichi

    25 – 30 round G20 mag when?

    9mm gets all the love… ?
