Mesa, AZ, August 23, 2016 – XTECH Tactical, manufacturer of the Advanced Tactical Grip is today introducing two new products for the HK VP9 pistol. First up is the new 5rd Magazine Extender for VP9 magazines. The XTECH Tactical mag extender adds an additional 5 round capacity to the VP9 magazine for a 20 round total. The mag extender is super simple to install with absolutely no tools needed.

Jeremy Deadman, Director of Sales and Marketing for XTECH Tactical explains how they have eliminated reliability concerns that plague many other mag extenders.

“The biggest thing for function is that we have a 100% consistent ID within the extender portion AND the  ID within the extender is less than the ID of the magazine.  The benefit here is that it is impossible for the extender to cause a Fail to Feed which is a known issue in extenders.”

The XTECH Tactical VP9 5rd Mag Extender is now shipping with an MSRP of $29.95 with FREE SHIPPING through the end of August.  http://www.xtechtactical.com/mtx-vp9p30-5-magazine-extender-with-spring/  Not available for sale in NY, CA or MA.

Additionally, XTECH Tactical will be offering complete XTECH Tactical VP9 magazines with and without the Mag Extender. The XTECH Tactical VP9 magazine will feature a 310 Stainless Steel body vs H&K’s Spring Steel body. It will also feature an extra round indicator hole to show the 20th round as shown in the photo below.

XTECH VP9 Mag 20 round 2

The XTECH Tactical 20 and 15 Round VP9 magazines will start shipping early this fall. The 20 Round magazine MSRP is $59.95 and the 15 Round magazine is $34.95.  Not available for sale in NY, CA or MA.

Daniel Defense Introduces 32rd Polymer AR Mags

Posted on June 8th, 2016 by ar15news

Daniel Defense recently introduced an addition to their line of polymer products, the new 32rd DD magazine for AR-15 rifles. The magazine features a nice textured surface, impact absorbing baseplate and improved feed-lip design and one other thing….oh yeah, it holds an extra two rounds. You might think “Big deal, its just two rounds” but technically if you store your mags with rounds in them its best to download them 2 rounds. This means you will be able to store a full 30 rounds in these mags. They also will most likely be easier to insert on a closed bolt with 3o rounds in them too. For more information, check out the specs and pics below, then head on over to www.DanielDefense.com. They show “in-stock” now but says should be in mid-June.

DD MAGAZINE™

The new Daniel Defense Magazine is the only magazine worthy of the Daniel Defense name. Built with the same legendary quality and exacting specifications as our rifles, this lightweight magazine holds up to 32 5.56mm rounds and is molded from a durable carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer. An improved feed-lip design and an enhanced anti-tilt follower provide smooth, reliable feeding, while an impact-absorbing baseplate design adds to the magazine’s overall durability. A non-snag design and textured surfaces for an enhanced grip make inserting and removing this magazine nearly effortless, and dissembling it for maintenance is nearly as easy. For reliability, durability, ease of maintenance, and legendary Daniel Defense quality in a magazine for your 5.56mm rifle, go with the name you can trust. Go with Daniel Defense.

Hexmag Awarded Patent for their True Riser System

Posted on May 10th, 2016 by ar15news

**PRESS RELEASE**

Hexmag has recently been awarded the patent on our True Riser in our 10 and 15 round magazines. This patent is very important to us as we have developed an evolutionary system to offer factory made 10 and 15 round magazines for capacity restricted states. 

The Hexmag True Riser system for standard size Hexmag magazines was carefully engineered, with the Ar-15 consumer in capacity restricted states mind. You get a standard size magazine that is magazine pouch friendly, looks natural in your AR-15 and can still be dissembled for normal, routine cleaning/maintenance or to change the HexID system. 

Hexmag TRUE Riser System

It features our patented True Riser and a short spring, the True Riser brings the base of the spring up mimicking internally, a dedicated 10 or 15 round tiny magazine without the drawbacks of a tiny magazine. This has all been done here at the Hexmag facility to eliminate 3rd party dealer “blocking”, “pinning”, or “gluing” the magazines. Ultimately saving the dealer and consumer considerable amounts of money. Hexmag 10 and 15 round magazines have the same MSRP as the standard capacity 30 round Hexmag magazines of $14.99. 

Our HX10/30 10 round magazines were made for California, New York, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Maryland, Chicago, Connecticut, Washington DC. The Hexmag HX15/30 15 round magazines were made for New Jersey and Colorado. If you live in one of these states or areas with a magazine capacity restriction you are not alone, rest assured that Hexmag has your back. 

All Hexmag magazines come with a Lifetime Warranty. For more information please visit the Hexmag 10 and 15 round magazine page on our website.

SHOT Show 2016 – Quarter Circle 10

Posted on January 22nd, 2016 by ar15news

I recently built a Quarter Circle 10 9mm AR and am kind of obsessed with the pistol caliber ARs. The one I built uses Glock mags which is cool since I carry a Glock but another reason I like it is that its pretty inexpensive to shoot and is a nice change from the standard AR. This year at SHOT Show, QC10 had some new components to show off including a new KeyMod handguard, a lower that takes MP5 mags and a new Side Charging upper. They announced that they will be creating lowers that take mags for the Sig 226, 229 and M&P and they will also be offering complete guns with pre-orders starting next week . 

The new KeyMod hand guards look pretty awesome. They definitely have their own unique style which is a good thing. Too many rails out there look pretty much the same. No ETA or price range yet.

Here’s a look at the Side Charging upper that QC10 partnered up with VLTOR on. This particular one is a prototype but gives you a good idea of what the final model will look like.

Last but definitely not least, that MP5 lower!! QC10 will be growing their list of mag compatible lowers this year to include MP5 mags, Sig 226 and 229 mags and Smith & Wesson M&P mags.

Definitely exciting to see Quarter Circle 10 growing so much and really just killing it with their new products. If you’re interested in building or buying a Pistol Caliber AR, Quarter Circle 10 is the company to watch this year!!

SHOT Show 2016 – .308 Hexmag Spotted

**NEW** ETS Group Glock 9mm Mags Available for Pre-Order

Posted on October 26th, 2015 by ar15news

I’m super stoked to see that ETS Group has put their huge line of Glock mags up for pre-order. These have been in testing for a while now making sure they are perfect and are going to be awesome mags. They are offering the 9mm mags first which will include G17 10 round limited, G19 10 round limited, G26 10 round, G19 15 round, G17 17 round, 22rd Competition Legal and G18 31 round mags with a translucent body at a fantastic price point.

I know, you’re probably wondering, “Why is AR15NEWS so excited about Glock mags?”. Its simple, I carry a Glock 19 (9mm) every day and many of you do as well. Aside from that, I also recently built a 9mm Quarter Circle 10 AR that takes Glock mags which is the main reason I want some of these mags. I’ll be putting in an order for a few 22 and 31 round mags as soon as I get done writing up this post. I’ve put some pics and links to all of the ETS Group Glock Mags below.
