We’ve known Gun Pro for their unique, uber-visible Delta 1 Sights (see Jeremy’s 4-star review of their pistol sights here). They have some impressive AR sights, too, but more on those later. What we hadn’t seen in person until Saturday were their new, patented Anti-Jam Magazines.
If you have a pistol that’s prone to jamming, 90+% of the time, it’s a magazine problem. Gun Pro takes a traditional .45 caliber 1911 magazine and adds a little something extra. They’ve partnered with magazine giant Check-Mate to add their patented Anti-Jam Tab which they say virtually eliminates the nosedive jams that can plague 1911 shooters, especially when using JHP ammo.
This video is a good illustration of how it works.
Gun Pro has dropped the Sure Fire name since the video was made, but the magazines are the same. They take a stock Check-Mate magazine and then laser-cut their patented tab, bending it to the proper angle to support the round to prevent nosedives.
They say the Anti-Jam Tab is rugged enough to survive tens of thousands of rounds while retaining its shape.
But if you somehow manage to knock your tab out of alignment, they’ll soon be selling a “tuning device” (basically specially shaped pliers) that will let you true it up again.
Gun Pro currently makes single stack 6, 7, 8 and 10-round .45 mags as well as 7 and 10-round 9mm 1911 magazines. They’ll also be out with double stack 1911 mags later this year. Anti-Jam Magazines are currently priced between $37 and $46.
Gun Pro tells us that the Anti-Jam Tab benefits other magazines in addition to 1911s. Next up: AR-15 magazines. Look for those to be available in the next 90-120 days.
While we were at their booth, we also saw their impressive AR Delta 1 BattleSight offset iron sights.
The beefy, fully-adjustable sights are made for them by Troy and feature their bright Delta 1 sighting system.
The Delta 1 BattleSights are priced at $289.
We hear Gun Pro’s now devised a way to add tritium vials to their pistol and AR sights for night-time performance without compromising their visibility in daylight and low light. Look for those soon, too.
We’ll be getting a set soon to review, so stay tuned.
