    Can I use +2 (extended) magazine insert to a flat floor plate

    When I bought my glock19 gen3 (USA) it came with 2 magazines both with +2 extensions. I'm trying to convert 1 of my magazine to use a flat floor plate but unfortunately it is hard to find the magazine insert for that kind of plate here in the Philippines.

    Has anyone tried using the "insert" of +2 extension with a flat floor plate?

    not really sure what your asking, but i think your asking can you extend the capacity with an original flat floor plate. answer is no, you would have to buy a bigger mag.

    use the regular glock flat floor plate if you don't have contact glock in smyrna georgia they will send you one and i am sure there only a couple of bucks.

    And the answer is no. you have to use the flat insert with a flat floor plate. It uses the pressure of the spring to lock the insert down

    here is a link:

    im kinda stubborn and cant wait to try my flat floor plate with the +2 insert as also suggested by the dealer that they used to do this because of hard to find inserts here in Philippines.

    Some of my findings:
    1. Can remove the +2 floor plate with just 2 hands, no need to insert kinda screwdriver in the hole.
    2. magazine original capacity from 17 can now only hold 12 because of the +2 insert with flat floor plate.
    3. Initial testing with repeatedly cocking the gun shows the new magazine is still feeding flawlessly.

    Yet to try the magazine in actual firing.
