The KATANA is our Patent Pending Glock 43x 48 Magwell machined completely out of premium billet materials. We designed it from the ground up to be a functional & legitimate improvement for your EDC that accepts OEM or Shield Arms S15 magazines with flush or +5 extensions. (Does not work with Shield +0 extension)
INTENT #1: Design a Magwell for the Glock 43x 48 that would stay securely fixed to the frame so as not to affect the ability to strip magazines. We engineered a proprietary tensioning system, that allows users to install/uninstall the KATANA in easily & stay put until ready to be removed.
INTENT #2: Create increased surface area for the users hand to effectively manipulate their weapon in a multitude of situations. We machined an elongated front guard that allows carriers with even the largest of hands to have enough purchase area while still minimalizing print during concealed carry.
INTENT #3: Achieve a true performance enhancement by decreasing reload times. We surpassed our expectations by incorporating an optimum angle of insert that allows off centered magazine reloads to feed into the frame. Relying on not only our own Test & Evaluations, but from that of multiple unbiased MIL/LEO/GOV agencies & Civilians showed a consistent decreased magazine reload time.
The KATANA is a Patent Pending design.
