I normally carry a Glock 19 with 19 compact mag installed.
I usually also carry a spare Glock 17 magazine in a magazine pouch.
On a number of them I have a Clock +2 mag extension.
Yesterday I accidentally dropped the magazine on my hardwood floor at home and the +2 extension broke and the magazine parts and ammunition w everywhere.
Has anyone else experienced this, and if so, have you quit using the +2 extension.?
Looks like the “lips” broke off the +2 Extension???

That's a different kind of mag dump.

Yikes. My faith in that system would be shattered. I don't have any personal experience with the extensions but I would be nervous about their durability if that happened to me. What if it was your carry piece and in a struggle your firearm hit the ground or a wall or table just before you needed it most? How old are they? Sometimes plastic degrades over time, especially if left in sunlight.

I've knocked a first gen +2 off my Glock 17 years ago. It got smacked by a come along handle while carrying it in a tanker holster. I never bought another +2 again.

I wonder how much the lip on the 19X protects the +2 mags?
This is a 17 mag being carried as spare so NO protection now OR when installed!

I always thought it was strange that a Glock 18, 33 round mag is a 31 round mag with a +2 base pad.

I mean why not just make it a 33 rounder or call 31 good enough.

I have one loaded on the shelf next to my G19 with a standard 15 round mag.

Play toy - get rid of it.
Makes your high reliability tool into a low reliability tool.

That's one main reason Glock stock mags are difficult to take apart.
And a good reason not to shave the barbs at the bottom (or wear them out with repeated removals) to make them easier to take apart.
