    Magazine Clips from Recover Tactical allow you to carry a spare magazine without a pouch. Loads and unloads like a regular magazine should.

    I have some. One on a G17 mag as backup for my G26 and one on a G21 mag for my G30S.

    I only use them when dressed casual with an untucked cover shirt or when walking the dog. It's kind of obvious that you have a large bulky object in you pocket and the wider than usual base plate isn't concealed. If you were standing in line at the store, the person behind you will see it clearly in your pocket and won't confuse it with a knife. It's more likely to draw curious questions.

    I don't think I would ever choose to just hang it off my belt and leave the rounds exposed as in the last pic. (You could do that at the range, but if that is the only time, then you wouldn't be practicing as you carry.)

    Summary: I like them and think they are worth the cost, but only for limited use circumstances.

    I think that's so cool, we barely started marketing and selling these things and within 20 minutes of posting someone replies that they own them. Thanks for the support!

    Nope. Magazine and ammo are left exposed to dirt/sand/lint/leaves. Too easy to lose it. Too easy for the clip to interfere with reloads.

    A pouch is more practical and if you want less bulk Safariland sells these, which I have used through a tour in Afghanistan and a few years in law enforcement without ever dropping a magazine.

    You keep leaves in your pocket?

    As long as the clip won't bend or crack, I'm ok with it. I'd like to try it some time. How long is their warranty against stuff like that?

    I agree with Bren...I too use these style clips...I like that they can be removed w/o taking off my Wilderness belt...The new design is intriguing, but I am concerned the actual"clip" might hit the magwell upon insertion and jam-up the reload??...That is what it looks like from the photos...maybe someone who uses them can post about this possibly happening, or not...

    No I keep the lint in my pocket and the "leaves" would apply to the outside-the-pocket carries shown in your pictures (2/3 of your still pictures).

    "Leaves" is the only part you dispute?

    First, I didn't notice that the thread was started by the company making the product. I'm not paid by them (although, they are welcome to send me free stuff, if they want ;) ).

    I thought I was replying to a potential customer and took some pics this morning to help show their use.

    Since the conversation has started, I'll post them anyway. 1000 words and all that.

    G26 in night stand mode:

    Out to walk the dog. (Not overly concealed in jeans):

    Side by side:

    Dockers next. They actually conceal a little better here. (Unfortunately, I spend most of my day in schools, hospitals, churches, and other people's homes. All no carry zones in my state.)

    I don't have much problem with lint as the clip keeps the mag off the bottom of the pocket where my keys and lint are kept.

    I prefer the SnagMag style pocket clip. Less obvious in jeans and it at least attempts to cover the feed lips.

    There's no problem with this when using a G17 mag in a G26. That's all I can comment about from first hand experience. I haven't tried a G17 mag in a G19 or a G19 mag in a G26.

    If you want the full size reload in the subcompact gun, you certainly won't have any problems.

    Does the clip go into the "hole" in back of the grip? Ya know, the one many (most?) Glock owners put a plug in? That would be a surprise when you whipped out your spare mag and the clip hit the plug and ....... the SHTF. :eek:

    This will not work if you have a plug (most Glock owners do not have one)

    Huh? People are always looking for a source to get grip plugs! Many manufacturers so I don't think they'd make a product nobody buys....

    there are millions of Glock on the market, if there is a market for 1% of the Glocks out there a product will sell

    Thankfully, this board does not account for or represent the majority of Glock owners. So no, most owners don't have plugs.
