    I haven't as of yet but it appears to be a after market part worth it. SJ 40

    Looks like they would hurt like hell for concealed carry, strong side hip. Also, it would seem that they might get torn off if they got caught just right on something solid.

    I would give em a try if they were made out of steel or brass, but being that they're plastic, no thanks.

    Yea they don't really serve any utilitarian purpose. When I ordered them I thought they would stick out more and give my pinky a little place to rest, but as it turns out they are pretty shallow when the mag is resting in the pistol.

    If I had to do it over again, I wouldn't have ordered them.

    Kodiak do you think it really makes a difference on the G26?
    Thank you.

    Seems like a solution looking for a problem. I've never had a problem with any of my Glocks' mags failing to drop upon pressing the mag release button. :dunno:

    If you got some tight or swelled mags they look like they could come in handy. Look nice also. I'll still stick with my OE Glock baseplates and GAP plates on the subcompact.

    They were probably designed for Gen 1 non-drop mags. Thats my guess. They might give you a slight edge in competition but, I think they protrude too much on the sides for carry .

    The don't stick out to much for carry, either the one in the gun or the spare mag. I've been using these on my Gen4 G26 for a month or so and really like them. Definately prefer these to the GAP's when it comes to reloading the gun. They provide a good grip and a means to rip a stuck mag out in the event of a double feed. Is the double feed likely? Probably not, but it's cheap insurance. I'll be ordering more.
