I have a Hyve one in my gun already. anyone want to buy my shield one, let me know, i'll be cheap
Glad to see you are out and hopefully on the mend!
A. why are you selling them? Any issues?
B. What are you drinking?
I ordered the 3 pack with mag catch when they offered the preorder. Since that time, I bought some Hyve colored stuff (mag plate, mag catch, etc) so I don't need the metal mag catch coming with the shield preorder that should be here friday. already have a buyer for the shield mag catch. i'm keeping the mags
drinking scotch. lol
I knew you were alright!
Still waiting on my shipping email, order#16xxx
Ok so the magazines just came in. One thing I'd like two point out that no one here has mentioned: follower to slide lock engagement.
First some pictures( I apologize for the formatting I'm on mobile):
Ok so this is the S15. Notice the height of the lever in relation to the frame.
This is stock. See how much further up the lever is?
Now see how little engagement there is on the slide versus the stock below? Not sure if you his will be a problem or not but I'll be going to the range today and testing.
Zero issues with engagement on mine. But I'm also using a Vickers slide stop.
I have a Vickers I didn't end up liking. I'll throw it on and see how it looks.
That'll start peening the slide stop notch.
Not good at all.
These S15 mags aren't vetting out too well.
...hoping, wishing, guessing?
No, no and no.
I've seen it first hand on a few of my 3-Gun buddies G17's when they installed aftermarket slide stop levers that didn't provide full and proper engagement.
Thanks for the info, thanks for the info and thanks for the info.
Good to know, time will tell.
16xxx finally shipped! Can not wait to get it to the range, and order more if everything checks out.
IMHO, while these mags were designed to hold 15 rounds and will work with 15 rounds, I think loading just 14rds in them is better for extending mag spring life, for your mag release , and short and long term functioning of your pistol
What is this based on? Anyways I just took mine to the range. One of the mags never once locked back. While shooting or manually racking. The other did except one time. The slide lock to slide engagement seems to be the issue here. Not sure what's causing this. Maybe the follower design?
Really appreciate folks taking the time to post. There is a lot of good, bad, and ugly. Hopefully, those of you that like them have much success.
Given everything I am going to hold off and stay OEM. Again, appreciate the updates - without you, we would all have to spend $$ to decide.
Just talked to Shield. Seems like the first gen (silver slide) 48s and 43Xs have a slightly different slidestop design and this causes the issues. I installed a Vickers slide stop and now the engagement is 100%. They're still going to send me a revised follower design and a stiffer spring. I'll experiment with these once they arrive.
Edit: Brandon actually clarified what the issue is;
"No it's actually that the mags sit about .030" lower in the early gen 1 frames (Glock discontinued this frame). The Vickers slide stop probably just has slightly lower engagement. I'm still sending you replacement springs, you can have them in case you need them!"
Edit 2: My frame is originally a silver 48 in case anyone was wondering.
Great information. I sold my silver slide 43x and 48 and replaced with the newer black slides so hopefully I want have that issue. Working up the energy to open the packs. Sucks when walking across a room leaves you winded.....
