    We all know Glocks are virtually indestructible from all variety of tests. The question I have pertain to Glock magazines. Do they match the legendary reliability of Glocks? I had a full loaded G23 magazine that I dropped onto concrete at the range. Can I expect some 'failutre to feeds' or any sort of compromised reliability of the mag? What are some of your experiences? I use my G23 for concealed carry, and I should probably buy a another spare mag. What do you guys think?

    Your mag should be good for a lot more drops. Any damage to the feed lips or base? Mags won't get any cheaper, of course you should buy more...It doesn't hurt to take the mags apart for a look see occasionally.

    What exactly is the feed lip and base? I'm guessing the base is the bottom part of the mag and the feed lip are the two metal thingys on top right? Thanks for the reply El_Ron1

    Correctamundo! Just look for obvious damage. Doubtful, the polymer is tough, but they can crack.:beer:
