NRA Gun Gear of the Week: Agency Arms Glock Magwell

by
posted on October 8, 2017

Best known for tuning Glock pistols with performance-driven gunsmithing, ornately cut and contoured slides and finely textured frames, Agency Arms also offers a drop-in upgrade that is drastically more discreet. The Glock Magwell is an anodized aluminum collar that flares and extends the grip frame to increase the “target area” for inserting a new magazine, and its ramped interior helps guide the magazine up into the well. Although aftermarket magwells are common on competition guns to ease and hasten reloading, their increased dimensions do not often meet the carry and concealment considerations of personal defense practitioners. The Agency Arms model, however, was designed with every day carry (EDC) in mind, and adds very little in terms of width or heft (0.1” and 0.6 ozs., respectively) that would degrade the host gun’s portability.
