    I think it sucks that there is no 30 round 10mm Glock mag. It'd definitly be on my Christmas list!

    Any other companies make any hi-cap (more than 15rds) for the 10mm Glocks?

    Thanks

    Ditto.

    I have been thinking the same thing. They already make a 27 round 40cal. What about a high cap 10mm and 45ACP (and i reackon GAP).

    That would be sweet, it would give me a reason to get a 45cal.

    Who makes the 27 round .40 mag? Is it reliable?

    Dunno who makes them, I think I saw them in Glockmieser? This was preban mags and where goin for around 100 bucks.

    I wonder how hard it would be to make a extension floorplate that would make the 10mm hold say 30 rounds total? (that would be freakin awesome!!) Or to obtain a block of the appropriate plastic and mill it out (say the tube plastic, and the feed lip area aluminum?) and put it together. Making the feed lip area one piece (Al) and the tube plastic, using a standard floorplate and follower. Or what about an all Al mag? That shouldnt be to hard with someone who has access to a mill. Making the cad plan shouldnt be hard at all, using a standard mag as a guide.

    I wonder why Glock would make one for the .40 and not the 10mm?(any ideas?)

    But since there is one for the .40. all I have to do is drop in a new barrel right? (how much $ and where's the cheapest to find them?)

    Feel free to share any thoughts. Thanks.

    .40 mags do not fit properly in the G20/29 frames.
    I use the 10mm mags to shoot .357 Sig and .40 S&W.

    Or! you could mill an extension (out of Al) off an existing high cap mag out of aluminum rectangular tubing. Where the seam is inside the joint make the folloer have a bevel to slide across it. Of course you would need a much longer, stronger spring.

    However an all Al mag tube would be much better, IMO. If you could find some thick wall tubing the right size inside (that would save a helluva lot of milling) and the outside thick enough to cut the slot for the mag catch to grab. The feedlips could be cut, bent, welded and smoothed to spec.


    I want!

    Now that the ban on round count is gone, some makers may be interested in producing such a mag.

    Seriously?! 10mm mags can shoot .40 reliably??? That's kinda cool.

    So using the stick 27rd. mag wouldn't work in a 10mm? That sucks.

    Yeah hopefully some company will make one soon since Glock hasn't gotten the clue yet. :(

    Yes the 10mm round is only 1/8th of an inch longer than the 40cal. My (and most) G20/29 will function reliably without modification on 40cal ammo. I start new 10mm shooters on 40 cal first, then start mixin in hot 10mm loads to get them used to aiming, then taming the recoil.

    You must be careful tho that you dont get so much fouling that the 10mm round doenst go all the way into battery, possibly causing a kaboom.

    The 40cal and lower is a different frame than the 10mm/45acp, therefore the mags will not fit.

    Unless law enforcement or the military has a major use for it, Glock will never produce it.

    Just another ball of mud.
    See Grams Engineering for +5 extensions for 10/45 mags.

    All of my 10s are twenty rounders and the .45s are good for 18. (except for the silly-*** 10 round magazines, but I prefer not to think about them)

    200 mm. of fun on tap.;f

    There's no real market for the higher capacity 10MM mags. The 29rd .40's are just an offshoot of the G 18 mags.
    Making a 10MM mag even the full length USPSA open class legal length of 170mm isn't really called for, as the .40 head size gives up mag capacity to the .38 super head size that's the standard in USPSA open.
    This is why so many of us Glock shooters hammered on USPSA to make 9mm (9x19) a legal class for open & accept it loaded to major power factor. We want to be able to use a Glock as our platform, not a 1911 based pistol.
    This lets us cut down the 33rd G 18 mags to rulebook length, so as not to have a 2 pc. mag tube & extenda base. The transition always seems to cause a feed bobble at the worst possible time.
    I will admit that a 20-30 rd 10MM mag would be great in a Mec-Tech carbine conversion, but the market isn't great enough to justify it.
    Too bad !

    Scherer makes the 29 round .40 S&W magazine, which should work for the .357 Sig also. I have one I want to sell with a plus 2 installed for 31 rounds. I never used it as I decided not to get a .357 Sig pistol after all, so I don't know if it's reliable. And no, it doesn't work in a 10mm Glock.:(

    I also use a Gram's +5 on one of my G21 mags. Gives me 18 rounds and has been reliable.

    Glock HAS NEVER MADE a 29-rd. .40 magazine, only a 31-rd. 9mm magazine for the G18.

    The market potential for a 30-rd. 10mm Glock magazine would be dismal.

    I'm a lot more excited about using a THE Accessories +5 on my G26 10-rd. mags than adding a few rounds to my G21 mags. I can comfortably carry the G26, and it now sports 16 rounds! :)

    I was just thinking since there are hi-cap 10mm mags out there for the 10mm verion of the MP5, that some other company (like a Sherer or pro-mag) would make a generic Glock mag the way they have for other calibers.

    I've checked out the extensions before, but unless I'm going to get almost double the amount of rounds out of it, I'll just stick to the 15rd. mags.

    Thanks for the replies :)

    I am curious if the MP5 mag can be modified to work on the G20.

    I don't believe so, I'm pretty sure they have a slight curve to them. But I could be wrong.
