SENTRY-owned Hexmag have launched their new Glock compatible magazine, a clear polymer magazine with Hexmag’s characteristic hexagon texture pattern. Hexmag first teased their Glock mag back in January 2017, at SHOT Show. Those early magazines were black polymer prototypes.
Virginia-based SENTRY acquired Hexmag back in October, 2017 and it seems they are now eager to expand their magazine range. The company released a press release about the new pistol magazines:
The unique design of the new Hexmag® GLOCK compatible magazine sets the tone for SENTRY’s future direction with the Hexmag line. “This is the first new product since the acquisition of Hexmag and our goal was to come out with a completely new design blending the best of metal and polymer magazine technologies with Hexmag’s signature design attributes,” stated Eric Yeates, VP of Product Development. “The result is a skeletonized stainless-steel core and feed lips providing strength and reliability with a polymer over mold for ultimate durability.”
The design, compatible with GLOCK Gen 3 through Gen 5 models G17, G19, G26 and G34, also accepts current available aftermarket base pad extenders designed for the existing GLOCK 17 magazine. A round counter on the back provides an indicator of capacity while loading to a maximum of 17-rounds. A 10-round version will follow the initial launch for states and areas with capacity restrictions. Additional models are under development to compliment the offering.
The design incorporates what users have come to expect from Hexmag: proprietary advanced composites for strength and reliability. The signature HextureÔ finish creates a more secure grip in all environmental conditions. Textured serrations on the front of the magazine body provide for rapid indexing during magazine changes. A self-lubricating anti-tilt follower allows for ease of loading and flawless operation. A heat treated stainless-steel spring offers a lifetime of trouble free performance. The new Hexmag GLOCK also features Hexmag’s tool-less takedown and HexIDcolor identification system, increasing safe operation and personalization.
The new Glock compatible Hexmag is set to retail for $21.99 MSRP. For more information check out Hexmag’s site here.
