Elite Tactical Systems (ETS) Group has made some introductions of new magazines at the 2017 SHOT Show that will be sure to catch a little bit of attention.
First, ETS announced a clear polymer version of MP5 magazines in 30, 20 and 10 round capacity.
Secondly, ETS also announced a clear polymer version of both Glock Model G42 and G43 magazines in 6, 9 and 12 round capacities. The 9-round model provides a natural and comfortable place for the “pinky” finger to rest due to the smaller nature of these handguns.
Lastly, ETS has developed the CAML. CAML being an acronym, stands for “Compression Adaptable Magazine Loader”. As pictured above, the small “follower” portion on the right side is slid off of the rail system. The user takes the CAML and slides the rail portion along the head side of ammunition casing as it is seated inside of the ammunition tray in rows. The user then lifts those rounds out of the tray and reattaches the “follower” on top of the ammunition and in “stripper clip” style, presses the ammunition into the magazine. The CAML is currently only being produced for 9mm pistol magazines. The beauty of the CAML is that it is said to work with all 9mm magazines, regardless if it is single or double-stack. It is currently in the production phase and you should see it around mid-to-late-March 2017.
The pricing on all of their new magazines and the CAML have yet to be determined.
