    I think there's been a design change to correct the issue you describe. I'm fairly certain that's no longer an issue.

    I have a few, and they've been flawless. No issues at all. Would not hesitate to carry them. Magpuls are what I trust and use in my AR.

    I have about 8 of them and have never had a problem. Actually prefer the G26 12 round version as it holds more ammo and shaves off a little weight and gives me a little more gripping surface.

    I'd carry them without hesitation...but I usually don't carry a Glock...

    I have three MagPul g19 mags and four g17 mags.

    I run them as range mags for my gen 4 G19. After about 1k rounds fired, still have not had a single mag related issue

    Since there isn't a significant cost savings over factory mags, the question is does Magpul do anything Glock doesn't? If they made an ~8 round G43 mag that worked I'd try it, since Glock seems dead set against making one. But I don't see any reason to get any of their current mags over factory ones.

    You're only saving $5 - $10 with Magpul instead of Glock. Gunmagwarehouse frequently has Glock mags at $19.99 with $5 shipping. So really there is little reason to go with aftermarket mags, which can be less reliable but not more reliable than OEM.

    I like Magpul, and they make awesome AR-15 mags. Their Glock mags seem to be of high quality construction. But there is not much incentive to choose them over Glock mags.

    I would loooove for that to happen. I tend not to like +2 or aftermarket mags, but I would go for an 8-rounder 42/43 mag from Magpul.

    Botach has sold the magpuls for like $12 in the past.
    Gunshows there's usually somebody that's willing to make a deal.

    You can get factory glock mags for $15.99 if you know where to look.

    Having said that, I do own a half dozen or so magpuls for my G17 and have countless rounds through them without a single issue. As reliable as OEM IMO.

    Got 3 P-Mags for my G26 and they work great except for the last rd. fired .
    Brass to face , top of head and a couple to the left over the slide . All on the last rd .
    Factory mags do not do this .

    For those who want a visual comparison between the 10 rnd, Magpul 12, and OEM 12 for the G26, see post # 23 in this other Magpul thread: New Magpul 12 Round Mags A Winner!!

    If the shape of the follower is slightly different, it could affect how the case is extracted/ejected, which you wouldn't see if it was a bullet pushing up instead of the follower... hence, only on the last round.

    None of my magpuls do that.

    No disrespect but aren't you asking for it leaving any mag fully loaded for that amount of time? I rotate mine every two weeks like clockwork. I think you'd have problems with a lot of mags if you leave em like that, especially here in Colorado where just about everything gets rust on it.

    I can usually get my Glock mags for $20 with the Magpul a couple bucks behind. If the cost was as expensive as my Sig P320c (close to $40), I would likely go with the Magpul's (if they make em for the sig which is probable). I've resisted buying the Magpul's before but, after reading this thread I'm going to get a half dozen next time I can get em for $18 which is pretty regular. Correction, I see em for sale for $10.99 for the G19 15 rounders.....

    I rotate ALL my mags for ALL my guns. I can do this because no gun is complete without at least 10 mags to go with it. Regardless of what guru says Glock mags can be loaded for 100 yrs and still function perfect.

    I have over 20 mags for my G19 and they stay loaded all the time . After every range trip I reload them when I come home. I have been doing this for years and have no problems at all .
    When I make a range trip which can be several times a week , all I have to do is grab the 19 and the mag bag and go .
    I do the same with my AA .22LR conversion kit for the 19 as well and no problems so far .
