    The G17 has the 33 rounders. Why doesn't the G22 have a super large capacity mag?? I know some people make after market ones, are they as good as the glock manufactured mags?

    I suppose the 33 rounders are actually made specifically for the G18. I was just wondering if anyone knew details on this subject.

    They were not G17 mags, Glock made them specifically for the G18 as you know. Being that the only full-auto was the G18, there was no need for any other high capacity mags. Scherer makes a 40S&W/29rd mag and I have a couple that have worked well for a number of years. Some here have had problems with them.... :cool:

    I have 3 that I bought used. Two work just as well as I could want. The third will not hold slide lock after the last bullet even after replacing the spring.

    Could be bad fowler, I had beretta aluminum fowlers go bad on the step the catch rides on(it had a dent notch in step rather than normal flat shelf). I bet you just need to replace it.

    after 29 rounds if it is still moving you shouldn't be shooting in the first place so just leave the mag in the gun and use it like a hammer and beat the heck out of it. lol

    Only in hollywood does this happen. As they say if it's 2 people you can double tap, if it's more than 3 you shoot one and get to cover ASAP.
