Oh man, it has finally happened! The firearm market has been asking for extended 10mm GLOCK mags for-freakin’-ever. And KRISS USA has delivered. Welcome to the MagEx2 extended baseplates for building yourself some 40-round 9mm magazines and 33-round 10mm magazines.
EDIT: looks like they’re already available for sale at KRISS USA’s new webstore.
I haven’t shot them yet but I fondled them extensively at SHOT Show’s Range Day and even managed to leave with the two pictured here. Full report coming soon enough, but my initial impression is that the quality is extremely high. The molding is incredibly precise and the polymer construction feels really good. If you can’t tell, I’m looking forward to that 10mm stick.
KRISS USA’s press release follows:
