Hope everyone is doing ok today. Just had a question: Are there more malfunctions using extra capacity mags with compact glocks such as 26 27s? Rarley ever had a problem with the standard 9 round mag, wondering about the 22 round factory mag, I never took that to the range yet.. Thanks in advance..

I would suggest using the extension that goes from the grip of the handgun down to the top of the baseplate of the mag (slips on over the top of the mag). If not you may put extra pressure on the mag causing a failure to load. Happened to me.

i have two of the 22 round mags and on more than one occasion i ran straight through the first 22 and the second one right after at a good pace and no problem. the only trouble i have is i am old now and the weight is a little heavy for me to handle. also just a note you can buy an extended floor plate for the 9 rd mag and make it 10 and it also gives you a resting place for your pinky. they are made by pearce and are readily available at most gun stores.

having no experience with the longer mags I can't say but reading what others have posted over the years and it seems that the 33 round mags are the ones that give the most trouble and I can only assume its because of the long spring pushing up on the follower. Towards the top it would get weaker

I don't have a sleeve for my 33-round 9mm magazine, but I've experienced this failure before.

If it's just for range use, mind the pressure on the mag and you'll be fine.

Thanks for the replys, Yeah I wanted to own a few larger mags for the range because it's less time loading, but also for keeping under the bed in the event of any type of unusual events that I would need in a self defense situation as well. So I figured Id ask and it sounds like it would be best to keep the smaller mags in or a 10 rounder. Dont need a ftf if ever in a situation, but like I said I like to have the larger mags too. Never know they might be banned again.. I have to try the 31 round out, looks like fun,but I konw I gotta keep pressure off the mag. tha will cause a problem as Barstool said...

here is one; cheap so be carefull
Magazine Speedloader - Glock and H&K USP for 9mm and .40S&W

Think about one of these, these rocks if you are shooting and they are universal (works on almost any mag)

I don't know about the 22 round mags, but I was told to avoid the 33 round mags also.

I hear what you're saying about the larger mags for the range, and at home but here's something to think about. If you use lower capacity mags, you will get a lot of practicing reloading, and if you ever had to reload in the field, things will run a lot smoother for you. Don't get me wrong, my plan is to keep a high capacity mag as my backup when carrying, but at the range I kind of do want to practice reloading as well.

At home, I think a pistol should be a backup weapon. A 12 gauge shotgun should be the first option, and if it gets hairier than that, time for a rifle.
