Hexmag’s Formal Release of Glock Magazines Set for Spring 2017

    Hexmag, known for their hexagonal shaped theme, MSR magazines, colored magazine identification system, and a fantastic website, has formally announced post SHOT Show details on their forthcoming Glock compatible magazines. The first model will be a 17 round offering compatible with all full-size and smaller Glock handguns.

    Unlike the Glock OEM magazines, the Hexmag offering will forgo metal reinforcement in leau of their PolyHex2 Advanced Composite for fully polymer feed lips. The polymer will be available in both Black and Flat Dark Earth. The magazine body will feature the trademark hex shapes, breaking the smooth surface up and giving the mags a bit more grip in the hand and a welcome addition of cuts in the floor plate to ease extraction of stubborn magazines.

    For reliable feeding, Hexmag is going with Fusiform heat-treated stainless steel spring set to mirror OEM spring tension. For those with various loads, the magazines will also include the aforementioned colored magazine identification system, known as HexID. All magazines can be disassembled without tools.

    Future plans include a 10 round version will be offered shortly thereafter for those in capacity restricted locals and then a 30 round version for PCC and those requiring “super-high capacity”. To me Super-High is at least double that, but complaining further would be looking a gift horse in the mouth.

    MSRP is set at $16.99 and release is anticipated Spring of 2017. All HexMag magazines come with their Lifetime Warranty.
