    Nope. I've been curling a pinky under my G26 for so long, that anything else would screw with my grip.

    I guess anything could work...whatever you get used to.
    Give it a try, certainly easy to switch back.OMO

    A buddy of mine tried them. They DO help with one-handed magazine drills.

    Other than that?

    I haven't tried those, I bought Pearce extentions for my 26. Work well for me. Although..... they were a huge pain in the butt to change because you have to squeeze the center of the clip to get the old plates off.

    Welcome to the forum. Don't own a Glock, but wouldn't use them even if I did.

    I use them on a Gen4 G26.
    Carried in a Remora holster.
    Makes a difference.
    Not very expensive.
    Worth a try.

    I have used them on my glock 26. I didn't notice a lot of difference on rapid fire strings (the 9mm doesn't have much snap to begin with) I will say that I notcied more of a difference when DRAWING my gun. My draw stroke and grip felt more solid.

    Friend of mine uses it. Pretty solid product. He liked it because the protrusion goes directly between his ring finger and pinky, and helps him "lock in."

    IIRC, Paul Gomez also favors this product - if I remember right, Mr. Gomez likes it because it helps with single-handed manipulations, giving one more surface for purchase in case you had to unconventionally rip-out the magazine from the magwell. I seem to remember one of his videos in which he hooked the lip into his belt, to help extract the magazine.

    This for me as well...although others remark on it, I have never had an issue with my grip on my G26 with a 10-round magazine. For carry around the house I use a 17-round magazine with or without an adapter, simply for the increased capacity - not grip. I carry it concealed with a 10-round magazine and a pouch with a 15-round magazine, also simply for increased capacity.

    And lastly...welcome.

    It is a pain to get floorplates off Glock magazines, but what clip are you squeezing? I'm looking for any help I can get.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    I just put a punch in the bottom of the magazine and used some force. At first I was worrying to much about squeezing the magazines.

    Naturally. Honk said he squeezes a clip and I'm wondering if there is some tool (other than a punch) that I might need to get.

    I have a floor plate and a Glock +2 mag, like the +2 better since it has a little finger grip on it, and the floorplate is just smooth. I love the change in feel over the stock 10 rd mag for my 26.

    edit* Also it was terribly difficult to remove the stock floor plate.
