Still have my six mags with the 10% springs. They have been 100%. Not a single hiccup.

Magholder now has a horizontal magazine carrier for the Shield Arms S15 magazines for the Glock G43x and G48. Great mag holder for horizontal carry.

I just got a message from the Magholder Team, unfortunately, the new S-15 Magholders are designed for the 2nd generation magholders and may not be comparable with the 1st Gen. I am waiting for confirmation.

From using them for thousands of rounds with all types of factory 9mm ammo, IMHO, I do not think the Shield Arms S15 Gen 1 and Gen 2 mags are not quite as reliable in function as the 10 round factory OEM mags. Besides that, the main reason I do not use them anymore, is because at least in my G43X using the Shield Arms steel mag release, it takes *very little mag release travel and very little pressure to release the mags, and I have had two accidental mag releases with them while carrying the pistol holstered. So for ** me** the SA15 mags were close but no cigar. I have since dumped the the SA15 mags and the G43X and now carry a S&W Shield Plus that I am completely satisfied with. I would most definitely try the mags and release before I would buy them if possible, as Glock grip frames dimensions can and do very a little from gun to gun.

I received my Magholder magazine carriers today and found that the Gen 1, S-15 magazine will not secure in the holder.

This is my layman’s observation: There are two tabs on the sides of the Magholder body that engage the magazine catch windows on a magazine, this design locks my G-19 magazines securely in place. With the Gen 1, S-15 magazine there is only the one window, engaging only one tab on the holder. Any slack in the holder body allows the magazine to slip off the tab. Pinching the sides of the holder body engaged the one tab more and locked the magazine securely. I have passed these comments on to Magholder for their use.

I used my 43x at a small gun match recently with the Shield mags and had no issues. I also installed the Shield metal mag release. About 75 rounds that day with no issues. In fact, I like the quicker release of the Shield mags compared to the stock Glock mags. YMMV.

Thanks for testing this out for us JWF. We got your message and are actually waiting for an S15 Gen 1 mag to arrive that we ordered so we can make the necessary adjustments.

Ricky, It was my pleasure. Let me know when the adjustments are finished, good horizontal mag holders Big Grin are hard to find.

Resurrecting an old thread. How are the Shield Arms metal mags holding up long term? Are they causing any excessive wear on the g43X/48 platform?

Thanks,

-Mike

Mine worked fine until I put a compensator on my gun. PMM warned that the Shield Arms mags may not work with their compensator and they were correct. I ended up buying 8 of the new PSA Micro Dagger magazines, which are also 15 round capacity, and they have been 100% reliable in about 600 rounds so far. One advantage to the PSA mags is that they have a plastic/metal hybrid body and do not require a metal magazine release.

Which is supposed to be better? Slick finish or regular finish?

Slick is all that is in stock now.

And you would know I just bought a third Shield Arms mag two weeks ago. Haven't even taken it to the range. My other two have been good with no malfunctions, it'll be interesting to see how they do after sitting fully loaded for 3 or 4 months.

I have the standard finish PSA mags and they're fine. I'm sure the slick ones are fine, too.

Interesting. I have a PMM comp on my 43X and havent seen any issues. I'm curious what problems the comp created.
