    I just noticed 12 round magazines for the G26. Was this at one point stock or is this a aftermarket magazine? My 26 came with 10 round mags and thats all I have heard of them coming with. Why doesnt it come with the 12 rounders?

    The Glock-manufactured 12-shot magazine for the G26 is just a 10-shot mag with a "+" floorplate extension. This is what it looks like:

    It is easy to make a twelve round G26 magazine but a bit harder to conceal.

    Keep your 10 round magazine and just carry a glock 19 or 17 round magazine as a back up.

    The extension takes nothing away from concealment. I recommend the x-grip extension and the pachmayr tactical grip glove to make it perfect.

    Wifey has Glock factory +2 extensions. They conceal fine, add a pinky grip and 2 more rounds.

    I just got a 19 mag and an XGrip for my 26, mainly for the range and nightstand.

    To the best of my knowledge, G26 has never been offered with the 12-round mags. They are an after-market accessory.

    I own one, and I am not as fond of it as some of the others answering your question. My wife went to buy me a spare mag for a birthday present not long after I got the pistol, and the salesman talked her into the 12-rounder instead of the stock mag. I carry it in my pocket for a backup mag, mostly because she got it for me, and I shoot it at the range, but I actually shoot the little pistol a bit better with the 10-round mags.

    You can buy Glock factory +2 extensions and you can buy Glock factory 12 round magazines. I have both and both work flawless. Even with the 12 round magazine, the Glock 26 conceals well.

    :thumbsup:Agreed. I have a Pearce +1 extension on both my stock G26 mags and it only adds about a 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch to the weapon and in no way hinders concealment.

    That is one big plus with the 26. I can just pop a 19 mag in it too and it's good to go

    I have both and like them both. The ten rounders are great in a Nemesis in a cargo pant pocket and the twelve are great for carry on the belt. I expected that the 12 would help me shoot better but either the two grips are equal or there is no help for me because at 25 yards I don't see any difference.

    Yes, you can buy Glock OEM (+) base plate assemblies, or the whole mag with the (+) baseplate, anyway mine all hold thirteen rounds comfortably and I load and shoot them with thirteen rounds, no issues, on a monthly basis.

    Just fyi, you can get the Glock factory plus 2 magazine for the G27, but only one round fits.

    I have 2- Glock +2 bases on two of my G26 mags. One in the pistol, one on the belt. Easily concealable, shorter barrel than a G19, but with the +2 bases not much shorter than a G19.

    During the late mag ban (1994 to 2004), Glock did make a '12 round' G26 mag for law enforcement use and thus marked for 'LE/GOVT use only'. It was simply a 10 round mag with the + floorplate, but since it held 12 rounds, it had to marked so to comply with the law.

    I presume they still sell G26 mags configured the same way, but not LE marked, and not included with new guns.
