Magazines are consumable items and when it comes time to replace them, finding affordable replacements can sometimes be difficult. Extar USA, in its mission to keep shooting more affordable, has released its new EM9-18 Glock-pattern 9mm magazines that retail for right around $10, and also feature a few enhancements of their own to make them more reliable and less prone to premature damage and wear. These new magazines are designed to be compatible with all full-size 9mm double-stack Glock handguns in both their compact and sub-compact variants.

Extar USA Introduces New Affordable EM9-18 Glock-Pattern Magazines
Lake Havasu, AZ (November 2022) Firearm innovator Extar USA continues to strive in American-made ways to keep shooting affordable. The EP9 is regarded by many as the highest-value, large-format 9mm pistol on the market. Aside from making most of the pistol in house, Extar USA helps keep prices down by eliminating markups by only selling direct to consumer.
Now Extar USA continues its strategies with EM9-18 Glock-pattern 9mm magazine.
As with all Extar USA products extensive research and design went into producing the new magazine. The magazine pattern’s previous existence didn’t mean there wasn’t room for improvement and optimization to make a better magazine that can sell at a lower cost.
The Extar EM9-18 was created using extensive knowledge of materials and mold design to produce the best polymer Glock-type magazine on the market. The EM9-18 holds 18 rounds and can be inserted on a closed bolt for 18+1 in your firearm. Compatible with all full-size 9mm (double-stack) Glock handguns and compact and sub-compact variants, the EM9-18 is lightweight, has smooth feeding, and will drop free from the Extar EP9.
Extar USA was determined to only offer a magazine if it met or exceeded, the performance of the Glock OEM magazines. Extar USA’s experience with engineering-grade materials, tooling design, and state-of-the-art processing has accomplished this goal and created a premium magazine at an affordable price.
Improvements to the Extar EM9-18 magazine include improved feed lip rigidity over Korean import steel-lined magazines, a single witness window at the 18-round mark to reduce debris ingress and enhance reliability, a new design that swells less than Glock OEM magazines when fully loaded, and a design that allows the EM9-18 to be inserted on a close bolt without risking damage to the magazine like can happen with Glock magazines. Each magazine is priced at an affordable $11.95 for just one magazine but price breaks can be had at the 3-magazine and 5-magazine mark with each bundle costing $30 and $45 respectively.
