    The only safe extension to use is the pinky rest. Anything that changes the length of the mag internally leads to problems.

    +1 on above. When I played around with +2's I had fail-to-feeds for the first time ever on a G27. With the stock baseplate or Pearce's "+0" pinky rests it is 100%.

    I tried them all. The GAP's felt the best out of the group, but I ended up selling all the extensions, and staying with stock baseplates.

    I like the Gap plates. Ido have one mag with the Pierce +0 and it works fine also.

    Glock +2 on 2 G26 mags. No problems. I have a G21 mag for my G30 with an A&G filler. It's a little "floppy" OWB with the added weight of the butt.

    Stock base plates on my 26. Still shoots like a dream, even with my large hands. I do keep some range mags with Scherer pinky rests for range use. 17rd mags for backup.

    none for me thank you....

    back in 1995 i bought a g23, my first compact, and since it only came with 10 round clinton mags, the owner of the shop gave me 2 glock +2 mag extensions....i had ftf's every time, so i ditched them and never went back....

    i have tried all of the pearce extenders on my 27, and had no ftf or fte's, but i had a blood blister on my pinky at the end of a 200 round range trip....

    if you dont shoot your gun, it wont be a problem, if you frequent the range, one of the pearce pg26, pg26xl, or pg2733 will bite/pinch your finger....

    Pearce +0 on my G29sf. With that wide a frame, I need all the grip I can get when putting a couple of hundred rounds of full power 10mm downrange.

    Can go without extension for CCW. Practice with and without extension.

    YMMV
