Hexmag announced the launch of its new line of aftermarket pistol magazines designed for use in Glock handguns. The company's first pistol magazine is sized to fit Glock G17 pistols and are also compatible with Glock G17C, G26, G34 and G17L models.

"We listened closely to the market 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," Hexmag Marketing Director Dave Smith said. "[We] then refined and upgraded the design by integrating the classic hexagonal pattern for enhanced grip and indexing reference points."

The Glock G17 magazines weigh 1.4 ounces and feature a 17-round capacity. The company also plans to introduce California-compliant 10-round magazines, as well as an extended 30-round model. The magazines feature the company's unique gripping surface, as well as a textured pattern on the front of the magazine body for easy indexing during reloads. The magazines also come with the company's HexID color identification system found on its AR magazines.

The Glock-compatible magazines will be available in Spring 2017 in black or flat dark earth matte finishes and retail at a suggested price of $16.99.
