    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

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

    It is found here

    or something like this...

    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?

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

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

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

    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.

    :upeyes: 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.
