    Have a g27 and find my pinky hags off. Need some input on people with mag extensions and people that have had them in the past and can't stand them. Need opinions from both sides. I understand that this is personal opinion but would like some input. Thanks.

    I actually prefer a pinky extension over all other options. I prefer my Glock 27 w/ext over a Glock 19/23. It just feels better and I have had 100% reliability with all of them. I have only tried the Pierce and the factory Glock ones though.

    I intend to pick up some Pearce +0 extensions when I think about it. It is just as much to get a better grip on it when drawing as it is to increase comfort when shooting.

    I vote yes, Pierce PG-26, just a little extention. I carry the PG-39 +2 back up mags too.

    I prefer the GAP floor plate which doesn't add length to the magazine but helps firm up your grip when drawing as well as firing.

    I vote no. If you want a bigger gun get a G23.

    Have a G27 and G23 mags with X-Grip.

    Don't like the pinky extension thingy.
    For CC the flush G27 mags, one in the gun and two on my belt,
    are just so comfortable and conceal so well though.
    I've gotten used to the dangling pinky thingy for shooting.
    Have a new Pachmayr Tactical Grip Glove shipping now I'm looking forward to trying out.

    I say you should have enough mags so that you can have them ALL.

    LOL
    I have multiple mags in three calibers and four lengths
    (from 9 to 22 rounds) for my G27.
    With four barrels in three calibers and two lengths.

    I'm out of control

    I vote no and I've tried pretty much all of them. I absolutely hated the GAP floorplates. I thought the Scherer +0's were too bulky. I actually like the Pearce +0 but don't feel they offer any advantage for me. If you think you MUST try an extension, I'd recommend the Pearce first.

    For you 'danglers' - try curling the little finger under the mag, it gives you leverage.

    I have the Pearce +1 on my Glock 27 and love it. Just buy one and try it out. Only around ten dollars.

    I can take them or leave them. I have one mag with an extension from Glock. It allows me to get a better grip when drawing from the holster. Overall, part of having a Glock 27 is that it conceals easily. If I want something bigger, I tend to choose a bigger handgun.

    Still, some people like starting with a small handgun and adding things to make it bigger.

    I just got the Pearce +0 for my g26 mag. I installed it. Picked up the gun. Released the mag and removed the extension. I had no problems without the extension just figured I'd give it a try. Needless to say... I'm not a fan.

    I vote no. The pinky hanging off feels different at first but eventually you get used to it. It's a little easier to conceal with standard flush mag plates too.
