New Metal-reinforced Omega Magazine From ETS Group

ETS Group is known for its line of translucent polymer magazines. But their newest offering, the Omega magazine, adds metal reinforcements at key points. Let’s take a closer look.

Magazines @ TFB:

The first Omega model is for the Glock 17. It will also fit the Glock 19, 19X, 26, 34, 45, and 47, but it will hang below the grip on models with shorter frames. It is also compatible with all generations of Glock from 1 to 5. The baseplate is also standardized to fit the wide array of extensions on the market. The Omega magazine also weighs 50% less than a full steel magazine. ETS Group plans to expand this line with models for Smith & Wesson, SIG Sauer, and Springfield Armory over the coming year.

The Omega for Glock 17 is available for order now and costs $25.99 direct from ETS Group.

From the manufacturer:

The ETS Group announces the release of the world’s best magazine—The Omega. ETS’s mission for the last decade has been to create the world’s best magazine. Hard work, relentless testing, and invaluable customer insights have fueled their obsessive pursuit of magazine perfection. The pursuit is over—Omega has arrived!

Omega magazines are the ultimate evolution of ammunition magazines. Omega offers shooters the superior strength, function, and durability of steel, while preserving the visibility, reduced weight, and impact resistance of ETS polymer.

The steel frame of Omega enables it to function like a factory mag as it reduces friction, increases stiffness, and maintains key tolerances for feed reliability. Moreover, the fusion of ETS’s legendary polymer with the steel frame, an industry-first, makes Omega superior to all other magazines.

    I've used glock, magpul, and ETS mags in my 19, 48, and sub2k. The only time I've ever had a FTF in any of those guns was using the ETS mags. Hopefully they're decent but I don't think it'll be worth moving away from glock mags

    Clear, because when I'm in a gunfight I am always pulling my magazine out to see how many rounds are left.
