Default Anyone have experience with ETS Glock fun sticks?

I bought three 31 rounders, then added a Glock 33 rounder to make sure at least one would work without a doubt. The ETS ones were pretty cheap like $13.99. Most reviews I saw were pretty positive.

Sample size of one, take it as you want. I got one because it came with some gun or another, brand new and had some issues with it, nothing major just not 100%. It was enough to where it got thrown in a bin somewhere. Maybe get pulled out to feed the PAK9 if it can. Glock stick mags aren't expensive (around 30), for an additional fifteen bucks I'd rather have OEM.

I purchased mine last year. After about 200 rounds of steel case 9mm it wouldn't feed in my Glock or Sub 2000. The follower was sticking. ETS sent me a new follower but I just leave it in the safe now and don't use it so I cannot vouch for whether it is fixed or not

I got a bunch (40ish) pre-election-2016 from PSA. They hold up fine so far staying loaded 24/7. I have had several of them with feeding issues. Every single time its the same thing. The steel cased ammo is dry and ashy. The extra friction makes the rounds and the follower bind on the inside walls of the mags. The fuckers quit pushing the rounds up. If I give the rounds a little lube before I load the mags, or if I use brass cased stuff, I don't have any issues.

I have a few. So far they have worked well. Iíve used them in my Gen 1 Sub 2000, Gen 2 Sub 2000, and my 9mm AR.

Never had an issue, but I usually use brass and aluminum cased ammo.

I run a 33 rnd ETS in my Pak-9 AK pistol. It's flawless.

I can't say the same thing about the 2 glock magazines I have. They cause a bunch of problems.

I've also run a lot of rounds through other magazines such as Beretta and they all function great in the Pak9.

Just not glock oem mags lol

Bought 10 on sale from psa a couple years ago. They are great with brass and nickle plated cases, but bind up on laquered steel. Had a few sitting in my car loaded over the winter and never had any breakage or feeding problems. Great range mags, would buy again if I could get them $10 or under shipped.

I don't know about ETS...but stay away from KCI (Korean) 9mm stick mags. The springs are pure junk. I took all the original springs out of mine and replaced them with Wolff springs. Ended up paying all-in what new factory Glock mags would have run...

I have two Magpul G19 and two G17 mags and they have been flawless. I guess I'll find out about the ETS mags, since I bought 3 of them.

Yeah, I've heard the KCI mags aren't typically very good. ETS seemed to at least have a better rep then them.

I noticed some have had issues using steel cased ammo. I don't generally use that, at least not in 9mm.

I have one that I use along with a few OEM Glock 33 rounders. One of the first times I loaded the ETS the base plate popped off. Was is not installed properly, or did I squeeze it with my hand allowing the base to pop off, who knows? It hasn't happened again and it seems to run flawlessly in a PAK-9.

You could have gotten glock brand 33 rounders for a few dollars more. On sale for $25-30 shipped quite regularly from places like Midwayusa and Brownells
