Is the Pearce +2 absolutely dependable in a G26?

    I've never used a Pearce +2 in a Glock before. I've had one for a few months and have had no problems with it through a lot of rounds. I am seriously thinking about using it exclusively on my 26. I love having 13 rounds in such a small package. I would like as much feedback as possible on it's dependability. Should I trust my life to its dependability?

    In my experience, they have been 100% reliable.

    Is it really a small package if you make it bigger? I've never understood buying a smaller gun then adding BS to make it more comfortable.

    if it wasnt for the fact that it pinched my pinky finger soo bad at the range that it created a blood blister on my finger, i would have kept them on my mags...now that i use the pistol without them, i like it better without...

    For the most part their good, I have seen a few not be to durable but it could also have been a bad batch.

    Still way smaller than the G19...

    *edit*

    Btw, both my G26 mags have these extensions. Did several drop tests with full mags and never had any issues, and I'm not even using the locking floorplate (just letting it lock on the magazine's locking tabs). I even had a kaboom that blew the mag apart, and after putting it all back together (nothing actually broken), still survived the drop tests.

    Got the +2 for the 27 subcompact .40 same as the 26 and it seemed to work for the finger ext. but it was supposed to add 2 rounds but could only get 1 in and the second was so tight that I just left it out. IMO the pearce +0 finger ext. is the way to go, you get the finger grip for the pinky and only make the front of the grip a little longer. I have a 27, 26, and 33 and am putting the +0 on all mags.

    I only use it because it's convenient to load 11 rounds at GSSF, and for that matter, that 10th round can be a witch to load without the extension.

    I have the Pearce +0 on my 27 and it feels and works just right on there. It does not add significantly to the size and it would eliminate your pinching trouble. jrh

    Absolutely, it add rounds, makes more shootable with a platform for little finger, plus doesn't detract from concealability.

    nothing beats the way the subs come right out of the box...

    i have used the pg26, the pg26xl, and the pg2733 and they all have the same razor sharp edge that bites your pinky....

    the best thing to do is to learn how to handle the pistol the way it was made...

    I wouldnt say that "nothing" beats it. Some people need / want that small increase in concealability, which is fine. I could shoot the 26 just fine when it was stock. However, with the extensions, I can shoot even *better*, and I especially saw a major benefit to my draw purchase. Plus I liked the extra 2 rounds per mag.

    Pearce PG-39 (+2 on G26), and yes... it locks on, it requires the Glock Tool to change it out.

    As long as it has locking baseplate it should be fine. The ones made by Pearce for the 21 do not lock on and suck.

    The magazine tabs keep mine on just fine. I have done several drop tests with full mags, and even competed with them. I even crashed my mountain bike once and lost a mag (which I was able to find the next day), and it was still full and assembled :p .


    I didn't put the locking plate in because that then only allows 11 rounds in the mag.
