Designed for states with reduced-capacity magazine restrictions or competition and training scenarios that require a reduced-capacity magazine, the new Magpul PMag 10 GL9 pistol magazine offers all the benefits and affordability of the company's popular line of standard-capacity Glock pistol magazines.

The body of the reduced-capacity PMag is constructed from the same high-quality, durable polymer as the company's other rugged standard-capacity magazines. Magazines designed to fit the Glock G17 and G19 are available, with both featuring a maximum, unalterable capacity of 10 rounds. The company has ensured that the designs of these limited magazines meets all of the regulations in states with specific laws against the possession of magazines holding more than 10 rounds.

However, Magpul solved many of the reliability issues that plagued reduced-capacity designs of other popular magazines on the market, thanks to the retention of the standard double-stack design used in standard-capacity double-stack magazines. In addition, unlike other reduced-capacity magazines available on the market, the Magpul PMag 10 can be easily taken apart by the end user to perform routine cleaning and maintenance.

Like the company's standard-capacity models, the reduced-capacity magazine uses a stainless-steel spring that aids in the durability and corrosion resistance of the design. The magazine also uses a controlled-tilt follower with an immediately visible orange color that provides visual indication through the slide that the magazine is empty when locked back after last-round ejection.

The Magpul PMag 10 GL9 Glock magazine can be used with the company's GL-L floor plates commonly used in competitive shooting. In addition, the bottom of the magazine features a dot-matrix design that allows owners to use paint pens to distinguish their magazines for maintenance and tracking.

All of the company's PMag GL9 magazines are made in the USA. The PMag 10s are only available in black and retail at a suggested price of $15.95 per magazine.
