    I was just curious as I was going through my stash and found 2 of them. I mostly see the 33 rounders (+2 baseplate) but never the 31's. Anybody have any idea?

    I just wasn't sure. I bought them new in the package this way about 8 years ago, have not seen them sold that way since...

    Funny you mentioned that, every "Glock Happy Stick" I've seen around here has the extension on it.

    I know a guy who purchased 100 G18 magazines with the +2 extensions. He also purchased 100 factory base plates. He removed the +2 extensions and resold all of the now 31 round magazines and +2 extensions separately. He made a profit of about $6 per mag for his efforts. Not something I'm interested in doing, but good for him I guess.

    If I wanted +2 extensions on my range mags I would source them from my G18 mags.

    I think they are great! I pick some up before the price won't go thru the roof once some percieved ban of the Happy Stick occurs. I hope it doesn't, but you never know.:whistling:
