THRiL has announced the release of the second generation of their SM9 magazines. The THRiL SM9 Gen 2 magazines are designed for SIG Sauer MPX Gen II pistol caliber carbines. According to the company, “the refined design of this Generation 2 SM9 MPX Mag enhances reliability across a broad range of shooting conditions and ammunitions for the SIG SAUER MPX® and KM models“.
PCC Magazines @ TFB:
- New ETS 30 and 40 round 9mm Magazines for CZ Scorpion Evo 3
- Glock Now Selling 24-Round 9mm Magazines
- NEW Elite Tactical Systems ETS MP5 9mm Magazines
- Calico Field Strip (100 Round 9mm Magazine!)
THRiL SM9 Gen 2 magazines are 9mm mags with a 35 round capacity. These magazines have a polymer body with a stability rib on the rear spine, elastomeric floorplate and stainless steel feed lips. The company notes that Gen 2 SM9 mags have an improved follower design, redesigned spring and enhanced round stack/magazine curvature geometry. The dimensions of these magazines are shown below.
When it comes to 9mm AR-pattern PCCs, it’s probably safe to say that the majority of them take Glock mags with the second most popular magazine option being the Colt mags. I wonder why AR PCCs compatible with SIG mags are not popular if they even exist. It could be for legal reasons but could also be due to the cost and availability of MPX mags. If the latter is the case, then the existence of more aftermarket magazines should make it more attractive for firearm manufacturers to design PCCs taking these mags. For those who own a SIG MPX, tell us in the comments section what do you think about new THRiL SM9 Gen 2 magazines? Do you think the design of MPX magazines (specifically the Gen 2 mags) is good enough to rival the Glock and Colt mags in the pistol caliber carbine world?
