Elite Tactical Systems (ETS) is probably most recognizable as the company that makes those highly photogenic, transparent Glock & AR magazines that can’t help but find their way into high-end gun photography shoots and Instagram gear shots. These super sexy magazines may have put ETS on the map, but they’re just a small piece of their ever-developing product line.

SHOT Show 2018 saw the release of the ETS C.A.M. Loaders, a series of universal speedloaders capable of loading double- and single-stack magazines in multiple calibers. Using the catchphrase “Stop Mag Thumb” to drive market awareness of preventing loading-induced hand fatigue through the use of their product, ETS pushed the C.A.M. Loader to the forefront of the speedloader market.

ETS Magazines

Some of the magazines currently available from ETS

ETS has some more surprises in store for us this year at SHOT Show. For starters, there will be an all-star cast of guest appearances at their booth. NRA spokeswoman, author, and FOX News Contributor Dana Loesch will be appearing on Wednesday, January 23rd, at 3:00 pm. Amy Robbins, CEO of Alexo Athletica, and Emily Valentine of Style Me Tactical, will be recording an episode of their podcast Not Your Average Gun Girls, at 9:00 am on Thursday the 24th. Finally, 1st Phorm athlete, gunslinger, gamer, and model Alex Zedra will be making an appearance on Thursday afternoon at 2:00 pm. These guests will be greeting fans and signing autographs, so swing by and get some Instagram fodder.

If that’s not enough to divert your attention to their booth, ETS has three new lines of magazines they will be rolling out this year. Let’s just say, if you’re an ETS magazine fan and your carry gun happens to be a Sig Sauer P320, Smith & Wesson M&P, or M&P Shield, then you’re going to be really excited. ETS will be revealing their new standard and 30-round capacity translucent magazines for these platforms.  There might even be some in-between sizes in the mix.

The ETS C.A.M. Universal Rifle Loader and 30-Round AR Magazine

If you’re the proud owner of a large-frame Glock (i.e. .45 ACP or 10mm), you’ll no longer have to live in magazine-envy of your 9mm and .40 cal Glock compadres. ETS will be introducing their big-bore Glock magazines this year as well. These will be available as standard capacity magazines and extended 30-rounders, making ETS one of the only manufacturers to offer 30-round mags for the 10mm and .45 ACP Glock platforms.

Since these new products won't be revealed until SHOT Show, you'll have to visit the ETS Group booth #10773 to get a first-hand look at these exciting new products!
