    i bought two mags and didn't like em. not enough grip left for me to be comfortable. i like the 10 rounders w/ scherer baseplates.

    OMB had them on clearance. 18.99 each free shipping. I bought two. Now they are sold out. I use my two for the indoor range. Getting nine rounds in those mags were a *****! I had to take apart the mags and put the small part of the mag spring compressed in a hobby vise overnight. They load fine now.

    Makes a huge difference for ccw. Overall grip length becomes no more than about 1/4 - 3/8" longer than the G26 with stock 10-round mags. Be forewarned, though: Just like the G30 10-rounders, the 9-round mag tends to have trouble getting the last one in.

    G26 versus G30:

    cool, thanks for the pics 10-65, i was trying to figure if losing the one round would be worth the shorter handle. after seeing the pic i'll be ordering some.

    I personally like the shorter grip. I can shoot better with it.

    How much bigger does that little finger extended make the 9 rounder? I know it's still smaller than the 10 rounder but doesn't that defeat the purpose of a smaller mag?

    It's this one right?

    When I carry it's at about 4:00, with a forward cant. The inch or so loss of grip near the rear helps to reduce printing.

    I have one 9-rd mag for CCW of my G30SF. 9-rd mag will only take 8 rds, even with UpLula loader. In summer I sometimes carry it IWB with 8+1; two spare 10-rd mags on opposite side. It hides OK under untucked shirt tail.

    If you take the mag a part and work the spring you will be able to get 9 rounds in there.
