But.then you realize you are are still in the middle of a widespread riot, your car can easily become disabled, and the authorities have abandoned the area. That clumsy-length mag would look pretty good at.that moment, and carrying it in the car is easy.
I'm not disputing you. I could come up with some high-pucker-factor scenarios, too. And, as I said, if you want to do it, go for it. It's just that you don't need to explain your reasons to me or anyone else. You don't owe anyone an explanation for what you choose to do. It's your life.

Follow your heart. That's all I was trying to say. If you got anything else out of it, I apologize for the miscommunication.

No offense taken. I was giving an EDC scenario outside the usual bodily-carried setup. Those who rage against such extended mags in their legal advocacy conveniently overlook such scenarios.

Some Glock magazines on Midwayusa's website are backordered until April. Good thing I've got about all I need.

Turned my factory 33 into a 31 rounder with a factory base plate. The with 33 rounds in it the spring tension on the last two rounds was always weak, it seemed like if I were to drop the mag they would have fallen out. Also any malfunction I ever had was with that magazine and the last two rounds.

Spring tension is a little better at 31 rounds but I still don't trust it for anything but plinking.

I offer this bit of heresy: I have found it easier to have a second firearm immediately available, than to have an extended length mag available. A second handgun seems to fit far more places easier than a 34-round mag. Carrying two 20/21 sized Glocks concealed may sound severe, but it is easier than tucking away a long mag.

I have two Korean made 40 S&W 31 round magazines. If the demand is there and the price high enough I will gladly be selling them..

33 rd mags are a lot of fun, especially with a J.R. Carbine.

Makes sense....now that you mention falling out, my son did have his drop out on it's own a few times. That damn thing is heavy loaded up with a bunch of .45s

I have a few of them because I can. They are fun. I also have arredondo extensions on a couple mags (I consider those practical even for carry). Fun times.

That's because you were probably applying pressure to the mag with your pinky while gripping the sub compact.

That makes sense on G26. Since the mag is so long & the magwell is so short you could put excessive pressure on it with your grip & cause a feed problem.

I bought my first 33 rd'er 4 years ago and bought two more 6 months ago. Novelty maybe but fun and cool all the same. Also bought Glock factory mags and never a glitch. I like them..!

Korean mag quality?

I know they've been out for years now. Are they as good as Glock yet? I remember years ago they were given the right to make a 1:1 clone of it from Glock.

Are they as reliable as Glock mags? Do they take all the same parts, plate, spring, follower?

I had a KCI G19 mag that ran 100% however I'm hearing that the G17 mags are crap. For range use they're ok if they work but I stick to factory mags for carry.

If they take the same parts could you order replacement butt plates, springs, and followers from glock and put them inside them?

Are KCI mags the same as CDNN's "Asian Military Mags"?

Is it worth buying a Korean one and then putting all glock parts in it? Seems like you aren't saving anything by doing that.

The mags are available and during the last ban we could keep the mags and repair them still

Yes they take the same parts .
The main problem with them is moulding flash and poor quality springs.
When one replaces the springs with either Glock or better yet Wolff they tend to function well but then they are not quite a bargain. SJ 40

This is an often asked question and it usually has mixed reviews. This is a very hit or miss product. I have a few for range and practicing reloads. I would not trust it enough for reliability for every day carry, but if SHTF they do come in handle as extra loaded mags. I have not yet had issue with mine (knock on wood) but I know others that have.

Mags are just inexpensive parts. Would rather spend the extra few $$ on guaranteed OEM reliability and be done with it.
