    I figured these plugs that cover up the open area behind the mag well would be a good idea as I have noticed that area can get dirty. I bought one for each of my Glocks.

    Do any of you use them? The open area allows junk to get right up into the striker.
    Since GT filters b0tachtactical, this is how you get to the link to see them...

    My EXO gen 3 G27 has a Pearce plug.
    Not sure it really has any value.
    But I like the way it looks and fits.

    To butt plug or not to butt plug,that is the question. Ok seriously some of my Glocks have them some don't,I haven't discovered a down side in all these years.
    Some of the manufactures of them do give the smooth finished look to the Butt of your Glock. SJ 40

    The right plug will assist with mag drills.

    There is a reason for that void behind the mag well.

    Glad the butt plug manufacturers figured out a solution to something the Glock engineers designed.

    Have on in every one of my Glocks but my 26. I feel way more dirt can get into the gun from open end of the grip than can come from the connector side of things.

    I'm not sure if this is what he would say but, another poster here on GT recently stated that the empty space was so that one could place their thumb in the channel to help remove a stuck magazine.

    I'd never really considered this before but it seems reasonable. I'm not particularly worried about this scenario as on my 19 & 36 there is ample grip on the magazine base plate for me to extract a stuck mag. I'm leaving my grip plugs in place.

    Larry Vickers recommends them to keep stuff from getting into the action of the Glock. I guess I'm a fan boy, but he has a lot more experience than me so I listen to what he has to say.

    If you like the way it feels, then by all means, insert a butt plug. Whatever floats your boat!
