    I have a G26 and a 33 rounder for it and I was thinking of puting one of those magazine sleeves on the 33 rounder so that it dosent wiggle so much and to ensure that it functions properly.

    Has anyone tried this? Does it work better? If so what sleeve did you use? The magazine is a Glock not aftermarket.

    Thanks

    I have never used a jacket, but my wife uses my 33rd magazines in her 26 everytime we go to the range with no issues.. Are you having issues with yours ?

    I have never tried it and there seems to be a lot of back and forth movement in the magazine well.

    Are the 33s GTG as is?

    Just go shoot it. I use the 33 in the 26 and the 27rd in the 21. No issues. Don't worry with the sleeve.

    +1 they do seem to move alot, but I have never had any issues in my 17, 34 or my wifes 26. I use to use them in my 19 before I sold it also.

    Both of my 33 round factory mags work perfectly in my G26 as is.

    33 rounder works fine in my 26 as well, but then again I do not use the mag as an extension of the grip. In other words I don't apply pressure on it. Technically I suppose it's possible to induce a feeding issue if you did this, but I could be wrong.

    that's correct, just use it as a mag, not as a larger grip, there will be a certain possibility to cant the mag and produce a feeding issue.

    My wife uses it as a second hand grip and it feds fine.

    The play at the far end of the mag is much more than it is near the throat of the barrel. You will be fine.
