very cool and easy to install
nice, Ive got the same plug.
i got the plug on all my Glocks
I didn't know they existed until a couple of days ago when I stumbled upon the website and I thought it was well worth getting to fill in that gap.
"The option that Glock forgot"
I have them in 3 of my Glocks and the 4th will soon get its plug!
I have one in mine also
I have it on all of mine and love it!
I was considering getting one of those.
Who did you order from?
they finally made one for the G30 SF and I just got it. It was worth the wait. It fits perfect and sits nice and flush.
I got it from Midway.
what does this do? do I need one for my G22?
Keeps debris out of the cavity. Also, the tac version has a pin punch and ejector remover.
I have them in all of my Glocks.......... To the point, I matched the color after I got a OD glock.....the Black plug did not look right for me, so had to match it.......and you just do not make 1...........
Anyone else use this one for their Glock 26?
I use it for the Glock 26, but it always ends up pushing it's way out when I start shooting. The 26 does not have the same lanyard holes that the full size glocks have so, there is nothing to really keep it in place besides friction.
That "hole" is there for a very important reason: It allows you to more easily get in there with a good grip to yank out an empty mag that is stuck!
Every discussion about having a plug in a Glock gets this same response.
I have to ask this...
When was the last time anyone had a Glock mag get stuck in the frame?
Aren't the sides of the magazine that stick out past the sides and bottom of the frame enough to pull it out if it were stuck?
The hole is there because Glock doesn't make a plug for it.
The hole is there because of the way they cast the frame while making it.
The hole is there because it would cost Glock money to plug it and it makes no difference to the gun's functioning whether the hole is there or not.
I here this from instructors and people that started using glocks early on before there were drop free mags. this is how they were trained.
There would be shrinkage and distortion on the back strap due to the thickness of the plastic if it were solid. there could be ways to engineer this out. but it is a lot easier to just design the frame the way they did for faster easier injection molding. it is a plain and simple manufacturering design. also, by keeping it hollow, they are helping to keep the weight down.
it's where i hide my stash...
Glocks just don't look right without the plug. And no, there's not there for some uber secret and intentionally designed Glock USA manufacturing reason.
They're a holdover from a European design, and was left on for reasons of consistency of design, parts, and etc. All other cloned strikers did away with that piece of over engineering (M&P, XD, etc) and have been just fine. In fact, most like the grips on those better. But it's all a matter of preference.
For me, I like the plug. Just doesn't look right without it. And for a carry gun it can definitely collect fluff and other crap.
Glock should just put one in ever case they sell in the US.
