I keep seeing guys talk about using GAP floorplates on their mags.
Easier to draw and keeps your grip more locked in place. I have them on all my mags.
I have them for my G26 and I love them. I find it easier to retrieve my pistol from my pocket when the floorplates are on and I don't have any significant extra printing from them.
Same as said above. Easier to draw with and they don't make printing any worse. My G27 came with two +0 extensions but I stopped using them because they printed more.
Useless for me!
I have two of them on G27 mags. I like them, for they seem to help the "floating pinky finger problem" without making the mag longer.
With the Gap plate, the RING finger presses DOWN on the plate, while the pinky finger can press UP into the plate. This seems to lock the pinky finger in place, even though there is nothing BEHIND that finger. This seems to help many shooters I have worked with.
+1 on GAP's. I have them on all my G27 mags. I shoot equally well with and without them, however, I like the feel of the grip, unholstering, and retention better with the GAP's installed. When carrying the G27 IWB, I've tried both ways (with and without the GAP), and find that grabbing and presentation is a lot easier with the GAP's.
Same here. Cant stand any sort of extension.
Guess its a good thing the GAP plates are not a mag extension then.
I like them because they lock my two fingers on the grip and help in pulling the gun out of the holster.
Have it on my g27 and it does make a difference. Easier for me to draw.
for the subcompacts i believe they help with the draw. i have them on my factory 26 mags.
Definitely makes drawing from concealment much easier and helps lock my hand in place during shooting. Improves the grip without adding any length.
They position my hand perfectly when drawing my G-26. When just shooting at paper targets with or without out them I shoot the same.
I have them on my 26 & 27 it makes the draw much easier.
Like others have stated...
they do not help me shoot any better, but they do help when drawing quickly from a holster, especially when practicing at "full speed".
Have you guys tried them?
The wife and I have the GAP floor plates on all eight of our sub compact mags.
They aid in both grip and draw.
The wife has small hands and can fit all fingers above the plate.
I'm going to go with the easier to draw conclusions as well. I have them on most of my G27 mags & have more control drawing & firing then without them installed. Also helps drawing from my pocket holster the few times I pocket carry my G27.
This. Exactly this.
I would say GAPs are "floorplate" extensions as opposed to "magazine" extensions.
To me, the difference is that the GAP floorplates don't add to the overall height, so there's zero effect on concealability.
