Just one week prior to the 2018 Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) Magpul announced the release of their new Pro 700 Chassis for the Remington 700 rifle. The Pro 700 appears to have addressed all of my criticism of the Hunter 700, although that stock continues to be an excellent value for the entry level precision rifle shooter. The question is, how will the market accept the Pro 700 at this price point in a saturated chassis market.
The highlights include:
- Ambidextrous bedding block (left or right-handed actions)
- Push button folding stock (reversible for left or right folder)
- Tool-less Length of Pull, Buttpad Height/Tilt and Comb Height Adjustment
- Molded, Adjustable for Sweep and Trigger Pull Length
- Large Trigger Guard for Glove Use
- QD Sling Mounting Points
- M-Lok Accessory Slots
- AICS Compatible Magazine Well
- Low-Profile Magazine Release
- Ambidextrous Thumb Shelf
- Length – 32.7” – 34.6” (23.5” when folded)
- Weight – 5.4 lbs
Magpul has set the MSRP at $999.95 and estimated availability in April 2018. Hopefully, we will have more information after we get our hands on the Pro 700 at the SHOT Show.
Magpul is now shipping the new Pmag 12 GL9 magazine for the Glock 26. We have had great results with the Pmag 17 and 21 GL9 magazines and wasted no time in ordering a Pmag 12 GL9. Once we get a chance to run a few boxes of ammo through it we will post a full review. If you want to get yours now, click on over to the Magpul Website and order one (the site would only allow us to order ONE).
We have been using the Pmag 17 GL9 in our Glock 17 for several months now. In competition and training we have put thousands of rounds through them without issue. When Magpul announced the release of the Pmag 21 GL9, we rushed to get our hands on one.
The Pmag 21 GL9 looks identical to the Pmag 17 GL9. The Pmag 21 extends from the bottom of the Glock 17 in order to make room for those four extra 9mm cartridges. The Pmag 21 also has 10, 15 and 21 round witness holes in the side.
The Pmag 21 GL9 uses the same floor plate as the Pmag 17. This includes the “dot matrix” marking area. This also means that the Pmag 21 will accept the Magpul L-Plate rubberized floor plate. If you are not forced to work within competition magazine length rules, the L-Plate is a worthy upgrade for these magazines.
We ran the Pmag 21 GL9 hard for 150 rounds to get a feel for the reliability. We did not have a single stoppage that I could attribute to the magazine. The mag-dumps were flawless. We ran 50 repetitions of “one-shot” drills to see how reliably the Pmag 21 would lock the slide back on our Glock 17. We only encountered one instance where the slide failed to lock. We could not reproduce the error.
If you have a need to gas up your Glock with 21 round magazines, the Magpul Pmag 21 GL9 is a great option. At $19.95 MSRP they are the most cost-effective method at increasing the magazine capacity of your Glock. Hopefully Magpul will have the 27 round version out soon!
The Glock 17 is arguably one of the most popular combat handguns since the 1911 or Hi-Power. They are relatively inexpensive, and easy for novices to shoot. While the handgun itself is relatively inexpensive, the magazines are not. Until recently, Glock has had a monopoly on magazines to feed your 9mm Glock. This has kept retail prices around $25 with LE pricing not much lower. This reason alone caused me to perk up when Magpul announced a Glock compatible Pmag.

In a press release Thursday, Magpul announced that they will be moving their manufacturing, shipping and distribution operations to Cheyenne, Wyoming.
Magpul is still considering sites, but announced its intent to move the corporate headquarters to Texas. The move will commence as soon as the facility is selected.
Doug Smith, Chief Operating Officer for Magpul Industries stated, “These dual moves will be carried out in a manner that ensures our operations and supply chain will not be interrupted and our loyal customers will not be affected.”
The move was prompted when Colorado enacted extremely restrictive firearms laws in 2013. Magpul led the fight to block the new legislation, which ultimately passed and was signed into law.
