    I am looking for suggestions on what the best way would be to go about adding a few more rounds to my glock 23..ive looked at the +5 mag extensions but i think they stick out awkwordly...im trying to find something that will add at least 2-3 rds if not more and does not stick out awkwordly..i am also wondering what pound recoil spring i should get for the g23...

    your s.o.l., i know im spelling this wrong,arendondo is your best bet in adding more than 1 to your 40 mag so your going to have to deal with it, or just add 1, with the pearce, pearce might have a +2 for 40, but I dont think so

    It would look more factory and less awkward to have the grip look like that of a G22 than have a +2 or +5 or whatever sticking out the end of the gun.....
    :dunno:

    IMHO - if it is a range gun who cares if it looks akward?

    My quesiton is in line wiht jb - because if it is for your ccw then I would use the standard g23 mag and then use a g22 mag as my extra. This way you have the concealability factor covered, and also have extra rounds in the event you need them.

    I agree with Jim S, if you cannot get the bad guy in 13+1 and an extra mag you are in big trouble, and an extra 2-3 won't do much good.

    Additional magazines is the best way to add rounds. You're just asking for trouble if you start adding extensions.

    G22 mag is the most dependable way to add 2 more rounds.
