Note that a 10-round G37 fits and functions in a G38 (or in a G39). A 7151 extension can be added to any GAP Glock magazine, increasing capacity by one round, so your G38 can have an eight, nine, ten or eleven round magazine. What it CAN'T have is more rounds in the flush-fitting G38 mag--there just ain't any more room!

Any of the Usual Suspects (GlockParts, Glockmeister, Lone Wolf, etc.) on the web.

ALSO WHY IS THAT A G-37 CAN FIT IN THE G-38 WHY DIDNT THEY DESIGN IT THAT WAY IN THE G-38 AHAA ??
Within a Glock caliber family, the longer magazines always fit in the shorter-gripped models. The G37 mag is longer than the G38 mag, so it holds more rounds and sticks out of the G38's grip by an inch or so.

Gary: Do you know if the A&G Grip Extension "slim" model would properly adapt a G37 magazine to a G38 grip? It should work since the "slim" adapts a G17 mag to a G19, and a G22 mag to a G23.

The Glock 9mm magazine is EXACTLY THE SAME SIZE as the Glock GAP magazine! A 7151 will fit just fine. Glockmeister (and others) may not have bothered updating their websites to reflect this.

Unlike the 7151, I have no experience with the A & G on a GAP mag--BUT it should work for the reason you cite; the G37 mag is the same size as the G17 mag.

I think Glock could have designed the G39 magazine to hold one or two more rounds. If you have a G39 mag, pop the floorplate off and look at the inside. It has the same "limiting" ridges as the 10 round clinton ban mags used to have during the ban. Actually they still do, if you are still limited to 10 rounders.

I hadn't noticed--but the question is: are the ridges there to LIMIT capacity or for feeding reliability? (I don't know why Glock would seek to limit a G39 mag to six rounds.)

I thought about that also. But how would those ridges increase reliability? There is no other Glock magazine that requires them. Not even the larger GAP mags. As far as the limitation, I simply don't know. It's almost as if they didn't want to make themselves look like jackasses when they found out the G39 mags actually held 7 instead of 6. I don't know if you noticed, but my G38 mags will actually load and hold 9 rounds easily. It just won't feed that 9th round without forcing it. So you can't effectively use it as a 9+1. Perhaps the G39 is actually(successfully) a 7+1 gun, but Glock didn't want to affect ones sales over the other by the G38 and G39 being so close in capacity.

I've seen some posts from other folks who say they can get 9 rounds in their G38 mags. I certainly noticed that it is much easier to get the eighth round in a G38 mag than the tenth round in a G37 mag!
