Gun Pro Anti-Jam Magazines and Delta 1 BattleSight Offset AR Iron Sights

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.

    “The Delta 1 BattleSights are priced at $289.”

    *Ouch*…

    Hmmm…..let’s shave off fractions of ounces by replacing an aluminum handguard with carbon fiber and then slap on some comparatively heavy, over-engineered, and over-priced sights.

      Suckers, range tards, look at me types. Well, they do tend to throw away their money on crap. So, I really don’t give a poo.

    My solution to 1911 reliability issues…I don’t own any of the junky things. And before some Archie Bunker pipes up to tell the group about how his Colt government model has never jammed, think about this….the very fact that this specialty magazine is on the market is clear and undeniable testimony to the widespread suckiness of the 1911 design.

      Ya my all steel tanfoglio 45 was about $400 and eats everything. It also doubles as a structural member if you need to weld a corner back together on an oil tanker

    2. avatar SdubM45 says:

      Yea, your right. 70 years of service, four major wars, and just for the U.S. alone. Yep, 1911’s don’t work well at all. There’s a reason it’s still being carried and used by people a century after its design. And before you start, I’m not in the Archie Bunker age demographic.

    3. avatar Ironhead says:

      Just like any other firearm, use quality mags and they run just fine. Even seen the holier than thou glock jam when using a crap mag.
      And i love 1911s. Do i think they are the be all end all hand gun? Nope. No do i feel that way about glock, sig, colt, savage, or anyone else.
      Use whats comfortable for you.

    4. avatar Cooter E Lee says:

      My RIA 1911knockoff doesn’t jam. I enjoy shooting it with an OEM and 2 chip McCormick magazines.

      Maybe the reason the magazine exists is to part gun owners from more of their hard earned money for something they perceive as a need? I personally wouldn’t buy one, but if someone else wants to drop the coin I’ve got no hate for them.

      Article says they are making anti-jam magazines for ARs. By your logic, I guess Pmags are prone to malfunction.

      You are entitled to your opinion.

    6. avatar Aaron says:

      you’re so good, madcap. we’re all very proud of you. good boy.

    7. avatar ThomasR says:

      Madcapp? You do know that all you show with your comments is bigotry, hatefulness, intolerance, and using adhominems to demean others that don’t agree with you.

      Is that really who you want to be?

    8. avatar Eric Lawrence says:

      By your logic the huge aftermarket for Glocks also indicates it is a subpar design, right. After all, if Glock did it right there would be no need for improved triggers, extended slide stops, enlarged mag releases, aftermarket slides with front slide serrations, steel sights, extended magazine bases, ETS or Magpul magazines, stronger or weaker trigger springs, etc., etc., etc.

    9. avatar Big Bill says:

      Right.
      And the very fact that Pet Rocks were not only on the market, but very profitable for those who marketed them, is “clear and undeniable testimony” that they were needed.

    10. avatar Russ H says:

      LOL, Madcap, you clearly have little experience with handguns – no one who did would make such an ignorant comment. Did you know the 1911 has been around for over a hundred years and still selling by the thousands? Probably not. I can’t help but wonder what you think about revolvers, which have been around even longer and those too are still very popular.

  4. avatar DaveDetroit says:

    Weird I don’t get feed failures in my revolvers. Not one single failure. Ever. ^_^

    Beretta 92F used to jam a lot until I gave it a good cleaning and switched lubricants.

    In a self-defense situation, give me the reliability of a revolver every time.

    1. avatar No one of consequence says:

      … until a really hot round bulges the primer and traps the firing pin … or a bullet works its way forward thanks to recoil, and locks up the cylinder … (Both of which I would call a feed failure, as it happens when attempting to get another round into firing position. Although the trapped firing pin might be more analogous to a failure to eject.)

      Not trying to be a jerk, all guns are machines and therefore are subject to failure at the most inopportune times. Revolvers included, and not just the ones Taurus makes.

      1. avatar DaveDetroit says:

        In all seriousness revolvers can fail from a variety of reasons with bad ammo a leading cause. It’s just WAY LESS common than a semi-auto feed failure.

        I would actually love to see an article on the most common revolver failures and their prevention or mitigation.

        I suppose that even a knife can fail. Kind of underscores having more than one plan when things go bad- like investing in another revolver!

        1. avatar No one of consequence says:

          I think I’ve seen such an article, but darned if I can find it right now.

          One thing to keep in mind, also … revolvers might have fewer failures per unit trigger pull, but the ones that do happen, are liable to take longer to deal with (if they can be dealt with at all in the field) than a semiauto. At least, having dealt with malfunctions on both platforms (thankfully never under conditions more stressful than at a range), that’s my impression.

    2. avatar little horn says:

      i’ve had revolvers fail on me. hammer locked up mid action. had to send it back, a few times. if its made by man, it will fail eventually. but you didn’t bother to name the manufacturer or model so your blanket statement is BS.

  5. avatar New Continental Army says:

    Madcapp isn’t really a gun owner. He’s just liberal troll who does nothing but come here to flame gun owners favorite guns. Give it time, and he’ll be flaming the glock and 9mm fans too.

    1. avatar AFGus says:

      Glad that somebody other than myself has noticed Mr. Maddtroll.

  6. avatar Southerner says:

    With modern production 1911 type handguns, “nosedive” feed jams are virtually unheard of with current 7 round magazines. The invention of the split follower, to make standard length 8 round magazines possible, is the primary culprit today for nosedive feed jams.

    From the pictures shown in this article, it appears the Gun Pro Anti-Jam Magazines are primarily designed to increase the reliability of split follower – extra capacity magazines for 1911 pattern magazines.

  7. avatar little horn says:

    hmm thats funny. i don’t have to buy special mags for any gun i have ever owned to get it to work properly.

  8. avatar Just sayin' says:

    if you think of the theory behind this design, it does make sense – how many of you out there could say that you would be 100% assured that you may not have a nose diving round in a time of need? I for one don’t ride a motorcycle with a bicycle helmet, or drive my car on retread tires….why go cheap on components that may cost your life in a time of need? How much does a well made mag cost?
    How many of us need assistance with their sight picture? I bet quite a few of “us” out there don’t shoot as well as we like to think we do. I say if the product fits your needs, try it, if not, go on to something else…..why bash something you haven’t experienced in person?

  9. avatar ironicatbest says:

    Tah dah, enter the tt33 with milled in receivers, magazine feed lip problem solved.

  10. avatar DrDKW says:

    My .25 FIE Titan doesn’t jam!

  11. avatar aK says:

    Well, I feel late to the game. I’d designed and built such a magazine with a spring tab a few years ago, but never got to patenting it. Ah well….

  12. avatar Ams says:

    Good magazines definitely make a difference. Changing old mag springs is also a good idea.
