    I have an older G26 and I bought a new magazine for it and noticed a significant gap between the magwell and the base plate of the magazine. The factory magazine doesn't exhibit this gap. The new magazine seats securely in place and seems to function fine but just doesn't fit as snugly.

    You can press on the [new] magazine and it will move up into the magwell about an 1/8" or so

    Is this anything I should worry about or is it just cosmetic?

    Chalk it up to a difference of mfg dates. No worries as long as you have proven it is reliable
