Yes. The magnet will attract to the gun. The slide and/or barrel will always be steel. The plastic makes the gun lighter so it will hold to the magnet even better. And YES, we even have a Mag-Bar for a Hi-Point (Mag-Bar XL).
We have you covered. The magnets strength is more than enough power to hold your firearm in place, even in rough conditions. A sudden jolt will not release your weapon. You will need to use a ROLL & PULL technique to break the magnetic bond between the magnet and the weapon.
No. The effects of the magnets is negligible and temporary. Magnets have been used in the firearm industry for sometime now with no negative side effects. As far as your ammo, the metal ammunition is made of is not magnetic. So you don't have to worry about the magnets effecting the performance of your firearm.
Always check with your state and local laws before carrying a weapon. Get familiar with your rights. Some states do not allow the carrying of a non-holstered weapon in your vehicle. We highly recommend using the Mag-Bar XL that way you can mount a holstered weapon.
Yes. For most rifles we recommend 1 Mag-Bar XL for the rear of the weapon and 1 standard Mag-Bar for the barrel. However, you can also use 2 Mag-Bar's or 1 Mag-Bar XL depending on your needs. We have multi-packs available.
Yes, you can mount a holstered weapon to a Mag-Bar. However, if you are planning on mounting it in a vehicle or drawing from it, you will need the Mag-Bar XL. The Mag-Bar XL will insure a powerful hold through your holster. The Mag-Bar XL will hold plastic, KYDEX, cloth, & leather holsters.
No. You can insert screws through the eyelets on the Mag-Bar to secure it directly to any surface. An example would be if you wanted to attach the Mag-Bar to a round/curved surface. The Mounting Plate will not attach to a round/curved surface.
No. The Mag-Bar was designed to have the magnetic force stronger on the backside of the Mag-Bar. This way it insures the Mag-Bar will stay on the Mounting Plate when drawn. You can determine the back side of the Mag-Bar by identifying the seam on the back side and the score pressed eyelets. When removing your weapon from the Mag-Bar XL you will need to use a ROLL & PULL technique. When removing your HOLSTERED weapon from the Mag-Bar XL you will need to roll your holstered weapon off the Mag-Bar XL.
The strength of the tape depends on the surface it is being attached to. On traditional plastics the tape has a shearing strength of approximately 240lbs. Make sure to use the supplied clear primer so that the plasticizers do not deteriorate the tape over time.
If you have concerns of damaging the surface of any item you are attaching the Mounting Plate to, our suggestion would be to choose a plastic surface. The tape will stick to numerous surfaces. The only issue is that it could possibly damage the surface you are attaching to if you were to ever want to remove the Mounting Plate. **An example would be a stained wooden night stand. Depending on the quality of the finish, if you attach your Mounting Plate with the 3M tape you may damage the surfaces finish if you were to remove the Mounting Plate**
The term "tuckable" means that when the holster is worn IWB. This can be achived by tucking your shirt in between the belt clip and holster allowing you to wear the holster with you shirt tucked in with the holster still attached to your belt.
