Glock 22 17 round mag gap filler

Now is there anything that will fill in the protruding mag of a Glock 22 with a 17 (15+2) round mag in it?

Example

General Glocking

Something like this but for the glock 22 17 round mag?

General Glocking

It is found here

[url]http://x-grips.com/products/glock-19-23/[/url]

or something like this...

General Glocking

I want something that fits completely and comfortably. Magazine Well/hand guard length can be extended also. Just something that looks good and covers the magazine and does not leave it sticking out.

Anyone know of something like the pictures? I know the 17 is just a 15 with the extension. But is there anything that will make the extension be a part of the gun?

Aftermarket magwell might cover most of it, but why?

not so far, but that is a good idea.

Heres what I got and the best option for me...

Buy the +2 extension of course... From Glock Store...

General Glocking

Then replace the base plate with these... Pearce grip extensions...

General Glocking

I was told it would help fix the gaping effect...

If that does not work I could simply use a mag plug. With the Pearce extensions.

Realistically? I'd suggest you learn to live with it. The rest of the world does! Those factory +2 extensions work very well.

(You've just reminded me that, 'Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.')

By the way, you seem to be, somewhat, cornfused. You cannot use a +2 extension AND a Pearce floor plate, together, at the same time. It's either one or the other.

Did you say, 'the gaping effect'? I've only rarely read a remark like that on this board; and, usually, it refers to the lack of a butt plug in the bottom of the frame.

Here's a couple of pictures of my G-19. As you can see I use both factory +2 extensions, and Pearce floor plates. I like things this way, too. Whenever I reach for the opposite side of my belt I know exactly which magazine I'm grabbing: a 15 or a 17 round magazine.

(I've been shooting a long time; and I can, often, tell by the cadence of my shots just how many rounds I have left.)

Here's a picture of my G-19. It shows both floor plates.

Here's a picture of a G-21 with a butt plug in the frame. It's the only real, 'gap' I know of on a Glock's grip -

You can, by the way, use a butt plug with either magazine setup.

Realistically I may have to. However I still think I am going to try it out. If it works "flawlessly" okay I will leave the crazyness on but if it does not...

The gap annoys me. We will see what happens.

Go back up to my original reply. I changed it to add a little more detail.

A word about that, 'annoying gap'. It can come in real handy if you ever have to rip a magazine out of the pistol.

I should add something else, too: Whenever I change magazine floor plates, like a +2, I also change the magazine spring to a Wolff spring (Usually, but not always, a +10% spring).

See I always thought you could replace the base plate of the extension with the pearce... But I guess I was wrong. Thanks for the reply! Good stuff.
