    Received my mag today. Just happened to get in on the last "in stock" shipment. Haven't had a chance to try it out yet but it drops freely from the gun. I installed a Hyve aluminum mag release yesterday and it seems to work as expected also. Hope to give it some range time in the next couple of weeks.

    Pretty typical these days to notify shipped when really just a shipping label has been generated...

    So are you saying life is tougher for you since you don't grasp the concept of bait and switch?

    No because the “bait” was taken


    Here’s some more positive feedback

    So I took my new mags (3 pack) to a course yesterday. Total of 1k rounds through them. I also have a Shield Arms +5 for the S15 on one of the mags.

    1,000 rounds while mags were being dropped, dragged and stomped on in the dirt. ZERO failures! They ran perfectly and not one failure to feed , drop free issues ect. I am impressed!

    They will now be used in my EDC set up I have 100% confidence in them and i will be ordering more once they're available”

    The reports so far are too inconsistent for me to consider these mags right now.

    Hopefully these will be readily available some day soon... Brownell's has them listed, but does clearly state that they are not back orderable.

    I'm going to calm down feeing for these mags for now. My plan was to get a 48, another 43x, 10 of these mags and break both weapons in ready for carry with the 15 rounders.

    They will eventually get back in stock and caught up with supply.

    I guess it's mostly political-sign of these pathetic times, but Glock should make the damn 15 rounders and also offer their mag extension's [scaled down] for these.

    How is it political? Glock makes 33 round mags.

    Which one of you guys that has more 1 will sell me one and a metal mag release? Help a brother out. I’d even throw an extra $20 your way or send you one back when I finally get it.

    I don't believe this will ever happen.
    I would love to be proven wrong.

    I've got six being delivered on Tuesday, if anyone wants a couple. I wanted 5 for each of my 43x so I'm stocked up now.

    Every gun owner is under siege-capacity an issue.....not political???


    Do the 33's fit your slim line? [if you have one]

    Glock chose to continue using a polymer magazine which limits capacity. It's not a conspiracy. Take a deep breath.
