KCI USA showed off their new B&T compatible magazines at SHOT Show this year, and I swung by to get a look for myself. As great as B&T’s products are, a polymer magazine with polymer feed lips in an extremely high-end, expensive, Swiss-made gun feels slightly out of place. At least to me. KCI has added some steel back to the equation.
Molded around the magazine at the top is a steel surround with steel feed lips.
The smoke-tinted, translucent polymer looks good and felt solid under the world-famous Jeremy S. squeeze and scratch polymer composition test protocol.
The KCI USA B&T-fit mags aren’t on their website yet, but when they do expect MSRP to be around half of a B&T factory magazine’s MSRP. We’ll do some reliability testing after these are available.
