I've tried several versions of mag extensions on both the 26 and 27, always nd up coming back to the flush magazine, feels best to me and conceals very well.

I bought a 12-round extended Glock mag for the G26, and found that I don't shoot as well with it as with the standard 10-rounders. The standard mag and a pinky curl works best for me. You aren't going to be sure until you try it for yourself, though.

I use the 12 rnd mags when I carry a spare mag or when I leave the gun in the bedroom but when I carry my 26, I carry it with the stock 10 rd mags. If you need the 12 rd extensions when you carry, then just carry a G19 instead of the 26.

I respectfully disagree. For me, I find the Pearce +1 magazine extension conceals just as well as the flat magazine floorplate, because there is no additional length added to the heel of the grip by the Pearce.

The Glock +2 floorplate does add length to the heel of the grip, making it harder to conceal than the Pearce, but it still is shorter than a G19 grip.

OK, I use Glock part 7151 (+) baseplates on my spare mags(s) and carry flush with either my G-27 (EDC) or G-26 (Glove box gun). However I have the old 2.5 Gen smooth frame Glocks the 7151 (+) extensions were made for. I know they work on Gen 3's and 4's mags as well. Glock should add the cross checkering to the + bottom face to match the newer pistol designs. For those type Glocks I would match them up with a Pierce, Scheer checkering on their + bottoms is too big, but they work too. Have never tried the GAP.

I vote no extension. I'm new to the 26 (and this site) and have been trying to decide how I want my mags set up. I put 300 rounds through my 26 yesterday using one mag with an extension, one mag with the GAP floor plate one mag with the stock floorplate and one 17 mag with a grip sleeve. For me it broke down like this -

Mag with extension - pinched my hand with every shot and really didn't feel right.

Mag with GAP floorplate - I really liked it. No discomfort and it made my grip feel very solid.

Mag with stock floorplate - Felt O.K. not bad, not great.

17 mag with sleeve - Not bad, not good...just o.k. Not really any better or worse than just using a 17 mag with no grip sleeve.

Needless to say I just ordered more GAP floorplates.

I bought three 12 round mags when I bought my G26 because with the gun empty and standing at the counter I thought I would need them. I just shot the plates at a GSSF event and used one 10 and three 12 round mags and cleared the rack with the 10 rounder with no extra shots. Once the gun is loaded and I am shooting it I shoot the ten round flush mags just fine. Frankly the only downside I see is the difficulty seating them on the first try and getting that last round in. I plan to buy another 12 rounder for matches but I am no longer worried about control or accuracy with the flush mags.
Decent law abiding people must fear criminals and the law while criminals have nothing to fear.
