    I was at a gun show today and someone had Glock Mags labeled as "Glock Asian Military" ??

    There were metal, drop free, hi-cap @ $23/each any caliber.

    What the heck are they? Will they work well?

    He also had standard capacity factory Glock Mags at $23 as well. Again, any caliber for any Glock same price.

    Do these prices sound good? Anything I should look for when I go back in the morning?

    That price is way to high.They are made in Korea and make OK range mags,spend $23 on original Glock mags.

    THEY SUCK!. i bought 5 of them. Every single one had feed issues, and not feeding into the gun i mind you, feeding themselves higher in the mag. I would fully load them, strip one off, tip it upsidedown and they would just pour out like jellybeans. RUN AWAY!

    Especially for $23. i paid $15 each for mine

    Hi-cap for you is standard capacity. Standard capacity for you is 10 rounders?

    You sure these Asian mags were metal?

    Korean are plastic and of good quality for aroung $10 or less, sounds odd.
     
  8. $23 must be the "gun show, deal of the day" price. :)

    As was mentioned, they can be had for $10 or less at places like CDNN, Wideners, etc.

    I have a bunch of them, but unlike some of the other posters, mine have been 100%, and at this point, I wouldnt have any problem using them for carry either.

    Hi-cap I mean > 10 rounds; Std Cap = 10 rds

    They where in fact metal. I picked them up and held them. They where at a local gun show that is happening this weekend. Never heard of "Asian" Glock anything which is why I asked

    I had no idea, thus, I asked. I may pick up one or two at the website link listed to see how they go as range mags.

    Interesting, but I would not use a metal mag in a GLOCK. The Asian mags I've seen and used have been copies of the GLOCK mag with plastic over metal liners. The KCI brand of Korean mags are usually very cheap as in less than $10 and work very well for range mags.

    Khan is another brand similar to KCI, but not as good quality.

    With CDNN weekends are a great time to order as sometimes they will run deals on those magazines. SJ 40

    I got a few for my G17 from Midway for $8.99 each. So far they have been flawless.

    10 rounds isn't standard capacity, it's neutered/low capacity.

    I have 4 of these mags, got them for 6 bucks each from CDNN about a year ago. They've been pretty good, for range use, but not 100%. If you're going to spend 23 bucks on a mag, you can get OEM Glock mags from CDNN for that price. If I were to do it over again I wouldn't buy the Asian mags. Just my 0.02

    I didn't know, so I asked. This is a great community and I got the answers I needed.

    I found "Asian" mags at another vendor table and for $6 they are worth a try. I know the vendor and he said if they don't work, bring them back.

    I found some OEM Glock mags for $19

    Thank you everyone for the replies

    Reviving an old thread, because it is becoming relevant again.

    Factory mags are settling around $50; Korean mags are 19 at the recent gun show in Tucson.

    My question: Are the asian mags known as GROCK mags?

    Oh, and do they work?
