    Hi JR,

    Have a Talo EXO G27 and just purchased a factory Glock G33 Barrel.
    My understanding is that the 40 mags will work, but 357 mags are recommended so there's no mix up with ammo. My EXO 40 barrel is nickel plated and the 357 is black. so I don't see that as an issue.

    Have heard of FTF follower problems by some though.
    Possibly resolved by 357 mags?
    I'll only be using quality self-defense ammo.

    My Question:
    Can I go with the G27/40 mags, with a G33/357 barrel for self defense, with confidence?

    Thanks JR,
  2. JR

    You can use either mag in either pistol. We recommend you always use the correct magazine with each barrel to help avoid any confusion.
    Yes I have heard of shooters using the 357 followers to resolve FTF issues. I chalk that up to "whatever works in a pinch"
