Glock 26 Magazine extension

So i just purchased some Glock factory magazine extensions (not pearce) for my G26 and installed them last night on two of my 10 round magazines. I like the way they feel and The extra two rounds is a bonus.
The QUESTION i have for any of you Guys/Girls is does this affect the reliability of the magazine to feed ammo since the spring now has a little more distance to travel?
Has anyone ever had any problems with this extension?

I have the Glock 2 rd extension on one of mine and a Pierce +2 on another and have no reliability issues whatsoever.

Never tried it. Having said that, I can't imagine that +2 rounds will be affected by a stock Glock magazine spring. There's plenty of over-engineering.

Dont worry about it. The subcompacts have, in most cases, the same springs as the compacts (G19), so there is plenty of extra spring length for a +2.
