SENTRY Products Group Announces the Acquisition of Hexmag™

When Hexmag was founded, it introduced lightweight magazines for the AR-15/AR-10 platforms. “We set out to make the most durable, versatile and aesthetic magazine on the market,” stated Aaron Schefter, founder of Hexmag. He continued, “With great acceptance and a strong end user following, the company rapidly expanded and SENTRY was the logical partner to continue the product development. When the SENTRY crew were executives at BLACKHAWK!®, they really loved and understood product development and manufacturing and that is what I want for the future of Hexmag’s products.”

SENTRY Products Group Announces the Acquisition of Hexmag™

Built in the USA and backed with a lifetime warranty, Hexmag’s products are manufactured using a proprietary fiber-reinforced polymer, PolyHex2, resulting in a lighter and more durable magazine. The patented hexagonal surface provides superior grip and ease of handling. Hexmag’s HexID Color Identification System allows end users to quickly personalize magazines to identify different ammunition calibers. Product line extensions include grips, rail covers and grip tape allowing end users to further customize their gear.

“We are proud to add Hexmag products to our company offerings; their innovative approach to product design and marketing fits well and extends our presence in the Military, Law Enforcement, Tactical and OEM markets,” said Terry Naughton, President of SENTRY Products Group. He continued, “This addition creates new US based jobs as manufacturing and distribution moves to SENTRY’s Boise, Idaho facility and core business functions move to the Virginia Beach, Virginia U.S.A. headquarters.”

“The acquisition of Hexmag fits perfectly with SENTRY’s short, medium and long-term vision of both organic growth, as well as growth through acquisition,” said Mike Noell, CEO of SENTRY.  “Hexmag was an easy plugin to our accessories business and gives SENTRY additional product categories, sales channels, new distribution partners and an entrance into the high-tech injection molded product arena.

ETS Group introduced their C.A.M. Pistol Magazine Loader a few months ago and is now introducing their new Universal C.A.M. Rifle Magazine Loader. The Universal C.A.M. Rifle Magazine Loader works very similar to how their Pistol Magazine Loader works. Simply attach the loader to the mag, pick up the ammo with the loader and then use the plunger to push the rounds into the mag. There are lots of mag loaders out there but most are much larger and the C.A.M. has a very impressive list of Mags and Calibers that it can load. Take a look at the details and video below.

I purchased an HK VP9 a few months ago and absolutely love it. Currently I run some of the XTech Tactical VP9 +5 Mag Extenders and they’ve run flawlessly. Today XTech Tactical introduced their new Complete Stainless Steel VP9 / P30 Magazines. VP9 mags are notoriously hard to find and when you do they are usually priced around $40-45. These new mags should be even nicer than factory mags with a retail price of just $34.95 each. Check out the press release for more information below.

Mesa, AZ- XTech Tactical, makers of the adjustable angle ATG AR Grip and MTX VP9 & P30 magazine extensions announced today the release of their complete magazine line for the H&K VP9 & P30 9mm pistols. These are anything but industry standard aftermarket magazines. The development process took over two years, and when you handle the parts it shows.

XTech Tactical Complete HK VP9 P30 Magazine 1

First, each and every process, material, and even the packaging is US made. The magazine bodies are upgraded over factory to 310 Stainless Steel. After the stamping process, they are precision laser welded and then Teflon coated. The springs are Stainless Steel and were developed through engineered simulations vs. trial and error. The springs are pre-set so there is no break in and no change in strength over time. The magazines have been tested and abused, and are ready for any requirement of any global user. One more additional feature XTech Tactical added is an additional round indicator hole in the back for the 20th round when using the magazines with their MTX VP9, VP40 & P30 +5 Magazine Extender.

**Press Release**

February, 2017–Loveland, CO- Hexmag, LLC– maker of the most advanced and versatile AR-15/AR-10 platform magazines on the market, proudly announces its move into high-quality pistol magazines that will be available in early Spring of 2017.

Hexmag Glock Pistol Mag

These robust new lightweight (1.4 ounces) magazines feature a 17-round capacity for the Glock Model 17 and are also compatible with Glock 17C, G26, G34 and G17L models. Hexmag will follow launch of the 17-round magazine with a 10-round version for California residents and a 30-round version for those who need a super-high capacity magazine.

Hexmag’s Glock compatible magazines are available in either Black or Flat Dark Earth (FDE) matte finish and come with Hexmag’s patented gripping surface and a textured front-side “training” pattern for fast and easy indexing when reloading.

Constructed of Hexmag’s high-impact UV stabilized PolyHex2 Advanced Composite, these are tough magazines designed for hard work. Hexmag uses a proprietary Fusiform heat-treated stainless steel spring set at OEM tension for reliable feeding even after long-term storage when kept fully loaded.

“We listened closely to the market,” says Hexmag’s marketing director Dave Smith, “and saw the need for an alternative polymer Glock compatible magazine that was affordable, lightweight and as tough as our AR-15 and AR-10 magazines – and then refined and upgraded the design by integrating the classic hexagonal pattern for enhanced grip and indexing reference points.”

It gets better! These new pistol magazines feature Hexmag’s industry-first pistol identification system, the HexID Color Identification System perfected on its AR-15/AR-10 magazines. The base plate can be easily removed without tools and the follower and base latch plate color changed to designate which ammunition/bullet is in the magazine for quick identification.

MSRP: $16.99

ETS Group Glock mags have been a huge hit ever since their introduction last year. Part of the reason for their popularity is that they cost quite a bit less than an OEM Glock mag and the transparent body looks awesome too. I bought some of the 31rd 9mm Glock mags from ETS a while back to use in my QuarterCircle10 AR9 and they have been awesome. They function flawlessly and are the only mags I have that will reliably lock the bolt back on an empty mag. They currently offer eight different 9mm Glock magazines and now they have added six new .40 Cal Glock magazines. Those new mags are 9rd, 13rd, 16rd, Competition Legal 19rd, Competition Legal 24rd and a 31rd.

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.

XTECH VP9 Mag Extender 2

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.”

XTECH VP9 Mag Extender 2

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.
