I picked up this 26Gen5 last month and have been shooting the snot out of it.

I'm impressed.
This Gen5 has the crispest (is that a word) trigger of any new Glock I've bought. The slide to barrel fit is tight, and the pistol shoots nice little groups on paper.

I put on night sights and that's it, that's all this little fella needs.

I have many Gen3 & Gen4 guns, but I think this new G5 26 is going to replace my beloved 27 as my everyday companion.

Not so much a Glock question, but accessory question.

I have used them in the past, and never had any problems.

But now, I hardly hear or see anyone using the Glock "+2" magazine extensions.

Did they go out of vogue, production, or just proved to be unreliable?

I use OEM Glock +2s on my Gen 2 G17 truck gun and my HD G45..
I use a rubber mallet to get them on and off the mag..





Thanks..

You do? You should try my method some time, it's much easier. Just drop a fully loaded magazine on the floor, it'll disassemble itself in spectacular fashion. Though, it tends to launch parts all over the place. I'm still looking for the locking insert on the one that I dropped in my bedroom about a year ago.

They're still in production. My LGS usually seems to have the OEM +2 Glock mags in stock, thought they seems to always be in coyote brown color. I've picked up a few and keep them in my G17 Gens 5s.

Thanks to all that replied.

The ones pictured look different than the ones I used, the ones pictured are more contoured, whereas mine were straight in the front.

My wife wanted to change from purse carry / fanny pack carry to on body carry. I let her try all the guns I had, my friends let her try all the guns they had. She had it in her mind that the SIG 938 would be the one. none of us had one so I took her to gun ranges with rental guns.

I restricted her to two at a time - 25 rounds each gun - whichever gun she grouped best with this week would be one of the guns next week and new contender pitted against it.

The Glock 43 9mm was the winner (and she didn't want it to be the winner). I shoot it just as good as my SIG 225 and it's light and easy to conceal - I explained that she needed to change her competition gun to glock so she'd practice same manual of arms. Got a Glock 22 40 S&W and conversion barrels in 357 SIG and 9X19 as well.

She still has her SIG 225 for off body use and I will say Glock's have been pretty reliable.

I did pretty much exactly what you had your wife do, and the Glock 17 and 26 won out against everything, and I did not want that to be the case at all. Good for you guys doing it the scientific way and accepting the results. I applaud your wife going with what actually worked vs what she wanted to work for her. It isn't always the easiest thing to do. Smile

I keep going through the I "need" a G20 and a G29 to ad to my glock collection. I have not succumbed to the pressure yet, but soon...

Mutiny, you also "need" a Glock 40.

Sorry I succumbed.
For some reason during the Glock drought my local FFL has G29SF's and Glock 20SF's come in in batches of 3 or 4 at a time. These models were rarely seen there the last couple years after the intro of the gen 4. I bought a 29SF when the first batch came in, and today dropped a deposit on a 20SF which I will pick up when I have time to fill out the forms. I guess distributors are finding and pumping out anything they have laying around.
I have to admit I have owned both in the past and those short frames were always my favorite gen 3 10mm's.
Of note, the batches don't last more than a day or 2 before the cases are empty again for a couple days.

They have a bad habit of popping off and emptying the contents of the magazine when they hit something. For carry and hard use the 2 extra rounds aren’t worth the risk of them popping off at an inopportune time.

Very nice! I just recently bought a Gen-5 19. I must say after around 20 Glocks of Gens 2,3,4 this Gen-5 is my favorite.

I stopped by my guy's shop today and he had a brand new G19X, among a bunch of other Glocks, including a G19 Gen 5 MOS. It was all I could do to hand it back to him.

There are Glocks out there to be had. These brick and mortar shops that move a lot of Glocks still get a lot of them. He had a glass case full of Glock magazines, including the long 9mm stick mags.

I use the Magpopper.
https://www.amazon.com/NcSTAR-...sembly/dp/B0742JNRCY

Seems a bit quicker and easier than the Real Avid one. Just insert and then squeeze. (It also works on aftermarket baseplates that are wider than factory, which the Real Avid one wouldn't.)

I use the VISM Magpopper as well.
Works pretty good and is very compact.
Takes up very little room in my gun (large fishing tackle) box..


Thanks..

Been using this thing for the past couple of years. It works...though I dunno what a 'Lirisy' is. Maybe it means something in the PRC.
