    Do they mess with the reliability of the factory magazines?
    I assume the one that is grip only doesn't?
    Thanks

    Just my opinion...
    If you change the length of the spring area by adding an extension and not change the spring to a slightly longer spring will it still act the same?
    Most people say it doesn't matter.
    I say Glock designed their springs and mags as they are.

    Extra capacity may be dependent on caliber. G26 mags use G19 springs, and G27/33 mags use G23/32 springs, so there should be no reliability issues in those sizes. I prefer factory #7151 extended bases, but only use them on my G37 magazines. My G26 and G39 mags have stock, flush bases.

    Ah, good to know that the G26s use G19 springs!

    I use the Pearce +2s on my G26 and have had no issues at all. I even had a KB, which blew one mag apart. I reassembled it and did several drop tests with a fully-loaded mag and it held together fine. One of the big factors in me going with them was Butch's recommendation.

    I LOOOOVE the feel of it. I could shoot it almost as well with the flush mags, but it feels a little better with the pinky rest, and the draw is MUCH easier now.
