With the improvements in springs and companies like Springfield Armory wielding 19+1 round 9mm's, who thinks that Glock could up most of their 9mm's and .40/.357 Glock's capacity by 1 or 2 rounds? I'm thinking G17 19+1, G19 17+1, G22 16/17+1, G23 14/15+1 etc... I bet it can be done and keep legendary Glock reliability. Just some thought for discussion. Keep on the cutting edge of technology.

P.S. Mitchell's Mausers makes 20 round P226 magazines.

Didn't Springfield "up" XD capacity by making the grips longer?

I know how you feel, some glockers just don't like GLOCK's having less at anything than any other gun. I really feel 17+1 is more than enough or put in a different way, anything more than that and it's too much or more than I would actually WANT. If the next Polymer gun that comes out has 24+1 rounds, would you really think that would be BETTER? Sure the XDM has 2 more rounds in the 9mm version but it's also more cumbersome and heavier. I still think the G17 has a better balance w/ plenty of firepower to boot. If anyone feels underpowered w/ 17+1, there is always the 33rd magazine you can stick in. :supergrin:

Absolutely. Have you seen how long the grip is in relation to the body/slide? Just throw a Pearce +3 extension and a Wolff +10% spring in a G17 and you have a 20+1 at about the same length as the XDM.

Or just go the 33 round route like was said earlier.

They tried to outshine Glock's perfection with 2 rounds of 9mm? Pu-leeze:rofl:
