    Glock .40 mags

    The G22 factory mag holds 15 rounds and the G23 factory mag holds 13 rounds of .40 S&W.

    So, for a back up mag would you take the 15rd G22 or 13 rd G23 and add a +2 base plate making it equal to the G22? I guess theres the option of the putting the +2 plate on the 22 mag and making it 17 as well. Opinions for a back-up mag?

    I would skip the G23 mag and get the G22 mag for back up. It would be cheaper than adding an extension to the G23 mag. You always have the option to add an extension to the G22 mag for 17 round capacity if you wanted to.

    For Glock mags, I agree. For 1911 mags, I swap factory springs and followers for Chip McCormick springs and followers to get the extra round.

    Yea I'm kind of weary of using the +2 plate. Maybe the best option is the G22 mags in the 23 for back up.

    Me too


    When I purchased my glock used it came with a mag that had a +2 extension. Wouldn't you know that is the only Glock mag that has ever given me any issues?

    Get a G22 mag for your spare and add an X-grip adapter to it. I love mine


    P.S. I loce Comp-Tacs single mag carriers. They hold VERY close to the body

    I own a g22 and a g27
    I have a +2 extension for the one of my g27 mags and a g23 mag as well.
    I own a g27 because of it's size and how well it conceals, carrying it with a larger mag makes it less concealable, so I carry with the 9 round mag and a larger, usually a g22 mag as a backup.
    it works for me, maybe it will work for you.

    Well here is the thing. I bought some 200gr LFNGC double tap .40 rounds so I can have a high cap woods gun. I usually either bring a .44 or a .357 when camping but I'm looking for more capacity. I don't have a 10mm anymore so that's why i got some Nasty 200gr rounds for the .40

    The higher capacity G22 mag will pretty much only be in the G23 when hiking, I'm thinking the X-grip would work well since it just slides over the mag and should not interfere with function.

    I'd go with the G22 mags. IMO, you're asking for trouble with the extension things.

    And nice kitchen maddy345.

    I always rock the G22 mags in my G23 and 27. I don't like using extentions as it another point of failure...albeit slim. I've had the old Pearce extensions fly off at the range before. I use Glock OEM extensions on my 27 mags for the pinky.
