Glock 19 Magazines

The design of the Glock 19 magazine allows for a double-row staggered cartridge configuration and are able to hold more ammunition than many other 9mm pistols of the same size. They have a stiff metal case encased in a strong high-tech polymer. This makes it almost indestructible and able to withstand damage when dropped or rough treatment.
