Is my mag sticking too far out ?

    I have a gen 4 G23 and a gen 4 G26. (see attached pic) The G23 mag (all of mine) sticks out and seems to have no recess for the mag. Is this normal on a G23?

    If normal, just seems a poor design of the handle to me as compared to the G26/27. Is this normal?

    How does it shoot? If there is no problems, I woulden't worry about it.

    Looks just like my Gen 4 G23.

    Never had noticed it until you posted the picture and I looked at mine to compare.

    I just looked at my G34 and the magazine looks about the same. Admittedly I never really noticed before tonight either.

    There is no conceal carry where I live, at the moment, but it looks like the G19/G23 are less concealable due to this error in design to me. The heel sticks out a extra 1/4 inch for no clear reason.

    Am I wrong or not seeing something?

    I assume you have never taken a combative pistol course. One handed operation with a flush fit mag that won't drop can be an issue if the mag base doesn't have a lip. The gap give you something to work with.

    If you think that little bitof extra mag is an issue for cc then just carry your 26. A lot of people cc full sized 1911s.

    All glock models except the subcompacts have been like this since the beginning as far as I know

    When I saw the title, all I could think was, "Does this Magazine make my butt look big?"
