First Look: Ammo Armor Magazine Covers for New Handguns

posted on November 20, 2020

Practically all of the malfunctions with a semi-automatic pistol can be blamed, at least in part, on a failure of the magazine to feed ammo into your gun. Keeping your magazines in tip-top shape means keeping them safe from wear and tear of daily life, and that’s where Ammo Armor comes in. Now Ammo Armor is releasing several new models of the magazine cover and magazine pouches for a variety of different pistols. New models include Ammo Armor covers and Ammo Klip magazine pouches for the Glock 43X/48, Glock 19, M&P Shield EZ .380, M&P Shield EZ 9 mm, and Springfield XDS pistols.

Wherever you carry your spare magazines, you can be certain that dirt and dust will always get inside of them. Proper care of a firearm usually means regular cleaning and lubrication, disassembling and cleaning our magazines should be part of that routine. Ammo Armor magazine covers are designed, engineered, and manufactured in the U.S. to be a practical and affordable solution to protect your magazine in transit. Both the Ammo Armor and Ammo Klip are made from military grade ABS plastic so they can withstand even the most rigorous environments. Ammo Armor covers are currently available for hundreds of different magazines and come in three different colors.

The Ammo Klip magazine pouch was created by adding a custom Discreet Carry Concepts steel clip to the Ammo Armor cover. An Ammo Klip can be worn on a belt or concealed inside of a pocket for fast and easy access to your spare magazines. Each Ammo Klip includes a self-contained tool to adjust the steel belt clip to your specific needs.

MSRP for the Ammo Armor magazine cover is $9.95, and the Ammo Klip magazine pouch is  $24.95. More information on these products and other gear from Ammo armor is available at

Working With Mini Shotshells

When someone asks a store clerk for 9 mm ammunition, generally the clerk can zero in on the customer’s needs by asking a couple questions: Target or defense? OK then, 124- or 147-grain projectiles? And, away the happy customer goes with a box of cartridges.
