Guns [SHOT Show 2017] XTECH HK VP9 Mag Extender and 20 Rounder Industry News January 16, 2017 Mesa, AZ based XTECH Tactical released two new products not too terribly long ago. Here's a little more about 'em. Here’s what they tell us about the new mags and mag extenders. SHOT Show 2017: XTECH Tactical XTECH Tactical introduced two new products for the HK VP9 pistol. First up is the new 5rd Magazine Extender for VP9 magazines. The XTECH Tactical mag extender adds an additional 5 round capacity to the VP9 magazine for a 20 round total. The mag extender is super simple to install with absolutely no tools needed. Jeremy Deadman, Director of Sales and Marketing for XTECH Tactical explains how they have eliminated reliability concerns that plague many other mag extenders. “The biggest thing for function is that we have a 100% consistent ID within the extender portion AND the ID within the extender is less than the ID of the magazine. The benefit here is that it is impossible for the extender to cause a Fail to Feed which is a known issue in extenders.” The XTECH Tactical VP9 5rd Mag Extender is now shipping with an MSRP of $29.99. Not available for sale in NY, CA or MA. Additionally, XTECH Tactical will be offering complete XTECH Tactical VP9 magazines with and without the Mag Extender. The XTECH Tactical VP9 magazine will feature a 310 Stainless Steel body vs H&K’s Spring Steel body. It will also feature an extra round indicator hole to show the 20th round. The 20 Round magazine MSRP is $59.99 and the 15 Round magazine is $34.99. Not available for sale in NY, CA or MA. About XTECH Tactical in their own words. American Ingenuity. American Made.

The NSSF SHOT Show (Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show) and Conference is an annual event held by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Typically attended by thousands of people from all 50 states and over a hundred countries, it is (quite rightfully) described as the “…world's premier exposition of combined firearms, ammunition, law enforcement, cutlery, outdoor apparel, optics, and related products and services. Imagine the Worlds' Fair, but packed with everything from mini-guns and every breed of body armor, bows and boots; from eye pro and ear pro to optics and ordnance, socks to swords…you get the idea. If you'd like to see a sampling of the companies who will be showing at this year's SHOT, there's a live map right here, though it doesn't reflect the organizations set up elsewhere, in hotel suites, etc View imagery from our coverage of last year's SHOT Show here; 2015's is right here.
