FAQ

Q. Will the Dagger™ Micro take Glock magazines?
A. PSA founder Jamin McCallum said, "The micro dagger magazine is ours and holds 15rds, it will work in a Glock 43x and a Glock 43x mag will work in a micro dagger".

Q. What material is the Dagger™ Micro magazine made from?
A. PSA founder Jamin McCallum said, "It is a patented design and very different it is polymer and stamped".

A. The Dagger™ Micro magazine is steel and over-molded with polymer (from top to bottom including in the area of the magazine release notch).

A. PSA founder Jamin McCallum said, "Yes".

Q. Will an OEM Glock G43X need a new magazine release in order to use a Dagger™ Micro magazine?
A. PSA founder Jamin McCallum said, "It will not needs [sic] new mag release, the portion that engages the mag release is polymer".

Q. Does the Dagger™ Micro magazine resolve the problem with a Shield Arms S15 magazine in an OEM Glock G43X in which the thinner magazine wall places the "case head farther back then (sic) the thicker polymer" resulting in a jam in using the slide release?
A. PSA founder Jamin McCallum said, "Yes, the mag is a totally different design that I had never seen before. Some of our guys really outdid themselves. You will like it. At first I asked them “why would you do that”, then they explained the above what you mentioned. We are only able to do this because of some really brilliant team members."

Q. Is the Dagger™ Micro compatible with OEM Glock parts?
A. Stephen Williams, PSA Pistol Operations Manager said, "to answer these questions as best as I can without giving too much away, we are working to make sure that we have cross compatibility with as many parts as possible. We had to work around a few patents, but we are making sure that most items will be drop in capable."

Q. Will the Dagger™ Micro magazine release and slide stop lever be ambidextrous?
A. Stephen Williams, PSA Pistol Operations Manager had originally said, "micro is bilateral". This was taken to mean both the magazine release and slide stop lever will be ambidextrous. Stephen later edited this to read, "mag release is bilateral". It's assumed the slide stop lever is not ambidextrous. This is consistent with an OEM Glock G43X.

Q. The Dagger™ Micro has been pictured (below from SHOT Show 2022) with a Holosun HS407K X2 and Trijicon RMRcc. Can we assume the Dagger™ Micro will be offered with both the Holosun HS407K/HS507K and Trijicon RMRcc footprints?

There's tremendous interest in the community in a 10-round version of the Dagger™ Micro. The 10-round Dagger™ Micro frame would be the same height as an OEM Glock G43 frame while maintaining the thickness of a 15-round Dagger™ Micro / OEM Glock G43X frame.

For kicks, we made a crude mock-up of a 10-round Dagger™ Micro ...
