    So I decided it was time to try colors on my Glock mags. 9mm - white, .40 - orange and .45 - blue. Tell me what you think. White of course was the easiest and most visible.

    I'm very happy with the white and blue. The orange is ok, but thinking bout changing to another color. I completed all my 9 and .45 mags, but stopped after one .40 because it wasn't showing up well.

    I color code mine as well but I use the color glock floor plates
    9mm- Black
    357sig/40 - blue
    45GAP -orange
    It allows me to ID them faster when digging in a drawer or bag.

    It works well and is very fast but I wish glock would offer other colors too like ODG and FDE

    hsp check out the G store in the factory parts section. They have organe and blue floor plates.

    What did you use to color yours in the pic? I was thinking those paint markers available from somewhere like walmart might offer some color options and may be durable. I've used them for similar uses.

    This is how I color code my mags. Grip tape from Dawson Precision.
