    Hey guys, question... I recently received two +2 GLOCK OEM mag extensions, one with the number "1" on it and the other with a number "2" but they look identical to me. Anyone familiar with these, and if so will they run safely and successfully without a insert? I have the one with the number two on one of my G17 mags, anyone have experience running these without a insert? Anyone have the part numbers for the +2 OEM and matching insert?

    Thanks in advance.

    HI,

    if im not mistaken, the +1 is for the .40 mags and the +2 for the 9mm

    i have a couple for my Glock 26 and has the +2 on them.....

    The mark on the inside is a mold ID number. The mark on the outside indicates it is the old style extended base. The newer bases, model 7151's, just have a "+" on the base, as added capacity depends on caliber and tube length.

    If you run it without an insert it will not be secure.

    I had the same question on reliability. I have one that I removed from another glock magazine. It is the old style(I guess) without an insert. I've been using it in my g26 without any malfunctions so far. It has +2 on the bottom.

    the glock OEM +2 adds 2 rounds to both .40 and 9mm. They require both parts (Basepad and insert) to operate securely. It is a locking insert and makes the extension rock solid. Using just the basepad it could be knocked off as the only thing securing them are the tabs on the side of magazine body. Here is the link for insert:

    Thankyou very much for the link. Now I'll have to either find the insert I must of lost or buy another. I didnt know it came with a insert(no hole in baseplate).:embarassed:

    AHH ok, well that would explain it then. So the OEM mag extension have a old and new model, the old without the whole saying "+2" and the new WITH the whole saying "+" and the newer is actually a little larger. I was under the impression they're are 2 different types. I also always assumed my happy sticks were 30 rounders with a +3 ext, just looked and they're actually 31 rounders, eh. Thanks

    Depends where you bought it from. Some places sell them together, some individually. Cheap enough to fix :)

    Not so fast. Glock part #7151 (+) extension and insert go together, "IF"You have the older glock part #1967 that came out around 1990, had no insert. Thats why the part was changed to include an insert. I have never had a problem with either and my old part 1967 +2 bottoms I have on my G-26 with no problems for size. I use the newer 7151 extensions on my G-27 2.5 gen or g-22/17 mags.

    Your photo extensions to me looks 1967 style. Mine are marked 1 or 2 inside.
