    The O-ring thing didn't work for me. I tried several different types, but none was just right not to cause mag loading issues and prevent the pinching. Also O-rings like to ride up the mag for some reason.
    What worked for me was ditching the extension all together, and adding the medium back-strap. Different back-straps will change the position of your fingers slightly, so before spending a lot of money just experiment with different straps and see if one of them cures your problem. Also make a conscious effort to keep your finger off the gap.
    I would suggest shooting and/or carrying without the extensions, but if you absolutely must have something then I recommend a G19 mag (good luck finding one now though) and the X-grip. I have one of these setups and it makes a nice full grip with the extra 15 round capacity. Very comfortable, but your back to a full G19 grip.
    Congrats on the G26!

    I put the extended slide stop, extended slide lock, and Meprolight night sights on all my Glocks.

    No extensions for me, I like my pinky tucked under. What made a big differece in my grip was the addition of Talon granular grips.

    After trying just about everything, I settled on the GAP floorplates for the G26 I used to have.
