I have both the single and double COPIA as well as the legacy MD cut single Kydex for Glock. While I was extremely skeptical given the ultra concealability of the MD cut, I was impressed by the short shield (new MD cut) and how well it conceals. Single Mag: I give this a 5 Star, RCS eventually had to go to something that fit all magazines. The retention especially for Glock magazines is perfect. The short shield allows me to carry a spare magazine while running (A)/IWB with my legacy Phantom or Eidolon on the weekend. Double Mag: I give it 4 stars. The short cut does make a difference, my only complaint is I wish the rivets were not in the middle and that the magazines were seated closer together, but this was likely a structural integrity issue during the T&E process. If possible, I recommend this be an improvement. Depending on the body type and location on the belt (9-11 O'clock), the middle portion of the double copia tends to push out/print. The boltaron material is a plus compared to the older Kydex T. I would love to see these accommodate single stag magazines given the new popularity of slimmer single stack pistols along with 1911 holdouts (with all due respect). Overall, RCS makes a product that is dependable. The warranty and customer service is A+. YMMV.

And many more!
Simple and well made mag carrier also adaptable to different magazine manufacturers. Hugs the body well and very comfortable to carry. Great piece of kit.
Finally a magazine carrier that with adjustable tension and very sturdy. Over the years I have went thought many carriers which seems to break during our training I am very confident that this will not be the case in this robust design.
Overall quality is good. My only complaint is that I cannot face my rounds forward in the carrier. The magazine doesnt have enough room even if tension screw is fully loosened. Editor's Note: Sorry to hear you are having a problem with the Copia Magazine Carrier. Please contact customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know what magazine you are using. (The Copia will accommodate the 9m,40cal double stack magazine.
Just got my mag carriers and I am very happy with them. I wanted the double mag carrier in the short profile, but they were not in stock at the time so I went with 2 singles. I was able to join them together using the supplied hardware, and everything went together great. I'm happy it worked out this way, because now I have 2 carriers that I can use in either a single or double orientation whereas I would have been stuck with just the double if I had of ordered that one. The only negative for me is that I would like the option of clips that slide over the belt rather than the loops.
The screws frequently needed to be retightened during a vickers training class. Also a thick belt wont slide through because there's a ledge on the underside rather than being flat. I had to have the carrier further back than I liked (I'm a lefty). Wish a standard Kydex mag carrier (like the raven one for glocks in 45) was available for double stack 9 magazines. Another downside is the 2 mag carriers are riveted together so you cant seperate them into 2 singles.
A magazine carrier is not a cerebral project, but does require experiance with weapons anda minimalist approach. This carrier is not overthought nor is it done cheaply. It is exactly what I wanted. Thanks!
Very nice Mag carrier. Retention system is excellent . the only downside is i wish the base was contoured for the the bullets instead of being flat. I do understand that not doing that makes it ambidextrous but I would rather order by side than have it flat
I have a couple different holders that I thought were less than ideal but decided to give rcs copia a try because I heard good things from p&s. In retrospect from previous holsters and belt combos this thing is fantastic. I almost don't even feel I am wearing it. Nice and tight hug on a sub par belt (Carharts 1.5"). It feels like it rides perfect owb. Only reason I'm giving a 4 is because 4.9 isn't an option and they should have in the description that to iwb carry this u need the soft loops. So I had to make another purchase. Other than that's all overlook on the description it's great!!!
Great fit for my 9 mm and 40 S&W double stacks. My double stack 45 ACP are too big for these. Love the rigidity of these. Very solid on the belt due to the spread of the loops. Also because of the design the mags are separated sufficiently to enable interference free reloading draw when carrying two mags. I have the older design and like the narrowness of those, but the mags are close together. The edges are not as well rounded and smooth as their older units.
