    I need some help/clarification! I have seen pics of the G-29 with what looks like the same extention as the G-30 10round mag. I do know that the G-30 baseplate does not work on the G-29. Is there a G-29 base plate that is of the same size as the G-30 that is available from Glock. I have called Glock and they say NO. But in adds and in the Glock reference book they show the G-29 with what certainly appears to be the identical base plate, which of course increases the grip surface on the G-29 as does the base plate on the G-30. I have also been told that this base plate from Glock does exist but there is no part number on it unlike the G-30 which has a part number on the base plate. I like the Pearce fingertip extention but would prefer the "imaginary"? elusive Glock G-29 oversized base plate. Why would they show it in pics and deny its existence? Could it be that some of the armourers i have spoken to are just not in the know?
    Your help would be greatly appreciated!

    Looks to me that someone just slapped in a G30 mag for visual appeal.

    Why doesn't the G30 baseplate work on a G29 mag?


    I've got probably a dozen G30 mags so I am going to just bend the feedlips in and shoot it until it is %100 reliable with 10mm.

    mag rant

    can anyone 'splain to me why Glock doesnt make a factory 12 - 13 shot G29 mag?

    I know they arent gonna sell bazillions of em but for crying out loud, they'd probably sell at least one of em to everybody that has a 29.

    Sure you can put +2's on the floorplate but Ive had a bad experience with +2's popping off.








    Another thing - who would it hurt to bring out a factory extended G36 mag with a 8 shot cap and Glock reliability?

    While we're at it how about a 9 shot 10mm G36?

    I took a G30 10-round mag today and turned it into a 13 round 10mm mag.


    It only took a few minutes and a pair of needle-nose pliers. The first adjustment took about 3 minutes. Then I fine-tuned it for a few more minutes. Piece of cake.

    It holds 13 rounds in the mag with a little room to spare.


    I now have a 14 shot (13+1) Glock 29. Cool!
