What Pistol Kywi insert should I get?

We offer two pistol inserts for customers to choose from when ordering a pistol pouch. Glock inserts, and 2011 inserts. 

Glock inserts are designed specifically for Glock magazines, which have a magazine body that tapers to the feed lips close to the end of the magazine.

2011 inserts are designed for 2011 style/shape magazines, which have a magazine body that tapers much sooner than the Glock. These inserts work great for EVERY double-stack magazine we've tried so far, from 9mm to 45ACP, including Glock magazines. 

The issue customers have run into is putting a magazine that tapers quickly into a Glock pouch, and having the magazine be pushed out, as the taper is at the same height or higher than the pinch point on the kydex insert. The 2011 has a "higher" pinch point, which again accommodates ALL double stack magazines. Below are photos showing why this happens, and a list of magazines by manufacturer that will work with each insert.


If you're not sure which insert to get for your pistol/magazines, get the 2011.
