    As the title says.

    Where are they sourced from?

    Are they locally made?

    Or perhaps Turkish / Croatian?

    This is correct. A member of a Dagger group on FB took a tour of their manufacturing facility & posted pictures of it.

    I’ve been eyeing a dagger lately. Just the basic model with night sights, kinda waiting and hoping they run it on special again with the 10mags and pistol case bundle.

    Federal law requires that a firearm be marked with the name of the manufacturer or importer and the location where it was made.

    Im not a huge fan of MagPul's Glock mags.........but those pistol case bundles were a screaming deal.

    Haven't seen any one of them up close.

    I'm looking into the PSA Rock - I like this pistol's internal design and overall aesthetic - might be a worthwhile contender for the 5.7x28mm round.

    Neither am I. All of the MagPul G19 PMag's I own are les than 100% reliable. They are great for malfunction drills though.

    I know a lot of guys that bought the Dagger frames for builds along with complete Dagger pistols. The first ones did have issues with the trigger pin walking out during shooting. I don't know if PSA fully corrected that issue yet or not.

    I’ve read that the trigger pins are no longer an issue

    My friend just bought one. It seems very nice. The fit and finish are excellent. I love how the grip feels. He has only shot it a little bit, but accuracy seems spot on. It is producing good groups at 20 yards with a RDS.

    Several years ago, PSA was giving twenty MagPul Glock mags with the purchase of a new Glock 19, One of my customers bought two of those G19s that each came with two factory mags. I bought those forty MagPuls for $5 each. Tried one at the range and decided they weren't better than factory Glock. Sold them at a gun show for $15each and bought genuine Glock mags with the proceeds.

    Now, that was the first or second year MagPul put those out, I would hope current production is better than those first two years.

    I don't know about current production PMags, but the PMags I bought in 2020 are not very reliable.

    He bought a Dagger. I’m trying to convince him to buy the Rock.

    I know there was talk of PSA moving the Danger barrel production in house. I don't know if that has happened yet. The first batch of Dagger barrels were made by a sub contractor. And there were issues with the barrels which created a backlog on orders when the Dagger was first released.

    A lot of guys on the old Marine Gun Builder forum jumped on the Dagger and Dagger slides when they were first released. It took a long time for anyone to actually get their Daggers or Dagger slides due to the barrel issues.

    I have many Magpul Glock Pmags (15 and 17 rounders) and they have all been reliable. I’ve also had good luck with ETS and Amend2 30+ rounders. I don’t say this to contest what others have said, but just to show that my experience differs.

    That said, the OEM Glock mags just feel more solid (heavier and denser plastic with metal linings).

    I just purchased a Dagger. It's quite the shooter and, for me, has better ergos than most Glock's I have owned.

    I don't recall PMags having round count holes, at least the I have doesn't, I do like that feature in Glock mags.
