    Any experience w/ Glock 27 and 'LEO' 11 Rnd Mags?

    I'm not sure if this is the right forum. Mods please move if you choose to.

    Anyone have, either good or bad, experience
    with GLOCK M/27 and the 11RD *LEO STAMPED* mags?

    Any feed problems?

    They look to be a only "tad" larger than a
    9 rnd'r w/ Pierce ext. Looks good for winter
    cary with cover garments.

    Thanks.

    Tommy,

    I'm not a fan of Glocks. That being said, I admire the platform and the way they were designed. I also like the idea of the G27. You'll find a few guys around the forum that use it as their daily carry.

    My suggestion to you, and I'm pretty sure this is what they do, and is one of the major advantages to Glocks that I see, is to pick up the G27 if you want to carry it, and then pick up full cap magazines for one of the larger models that shoots .40S&W. You can carry with the usual 9 or 10 round mag (sorry, don't know how many it holds) and carry the larger mags on your belt as reloads.

    Just a thought.

    Jim,

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Yes Sir, you can use 9-13-15 rnd'rs (and I do - ) in the
    Glock 27.

    But I am very interested in GLOCK M/27 and the 11RD *LEO STAMPED* mags for a 'certain use'.

    The reason I asked if there were any here with experience with the
    11 rnd'r LEO mags is that I have no way of testing them before I
    order them.

    They 'should' work just fine. I have seen posts where some have
    said they had ocassional feed problems using G23 and G22 mags
    in a 27.

    I have never had a problem - for that matter never have I seen
    anyone else have a feed problem with the larger caps in a 27.
    But, I am sure there are some with problems since mags are the
    weak link in auto-loaders.

    I've seen a lot of rnds go through "drastic plastic" using those mags.

    AH, but such is the nature of 'virtual reality' (the web) and the world.

    I have never had any problems with either feeding or extraction in my Glock 27 and although I've not used mags stamped "LEO Only" I have used M22 and M23 hi-caps with no problems. There is a plastic spacer you can buy for those and it provides a seamless grip area. Awesome. If you're having problems feeding with the LEO mags it's probably worn out mag springs. Get some from Wolff. My M27 is my primary carry piece in town and what I usually compete with.

    THAT'S the problem. The SPRING inside the magazine is tensioned for the 9 rounds. Stretching it out to accomodate the extra rounds weakened the pressure needed to feed!

    No I've NOT seen that. I'm saying if anybody has problems with a 9rd mag that has had a +2 extension added without also adding a higher tension spring, THAT'S the trouble, especially as the number of rounds decreases in the mag. I'd be surprised if the last two fed at all under those conditions.

    ExSoldier762,

    Now we have to ask: "would Glock offer such an inferioir mag for sale, not only to the public, but to LEO"?...

    That is why I asked:

    Anyone have, either good or bad, experience
    with GLOCK M/27 and the 11RD *LEO STAMPED* mags?

    Look a LOT of folks take a high cap mag and put their OWN +2 extension onto it, for whatever reason. If somebody does that without also changing the spring, there's going to be a problem and MOST cops aren't that savvy about guns. Heck most street cops handle 'em like it's a snake gonna bite 'em! Why do you think the qualification tests are all pass/fail now?

    I'm sure if the extension was fitted at the factory, it'd be proper mag spring tensions. But that's why the M27 was designed to accept the M22 and M23 mags in the first place.

    ExSoldier762,

    Thanks for your thoughts. I have a lot of experience with both
    Glocks and Glock owners and I agree with you, some owners
    don't know about +2's and spring tension.

    Perhaps I should rephrase my query:



    Anyone have, real-world, hands-on experience
    with GLOCK M/27 and the 11RD *LEO STAMPED* mags?
    >>> Glock 9 rnd mag with a fatcory installed +2 intended for LEO use.

    Not Happy with the 11rd Mag

    My 11rd mags only hold 9 rds. I just bought these last weekend, I can only get 9 rds in one and 10 rds in the other. I love my 27 but these mags are not all they are cracked up to be. I am totally satisfied with the good ole 9rders though. My 27 is my primary carry gun so I thought the extra 2 rds would be better if I had to pull, it didn't work out that way. I still wouldn't give up my glock 27 for anything, well maybe a Wilson Tactical Elite.45, I do also carry a Glock 22 and a 1911 custom build . Hopefully this will help anyone wanting to waste money on 11 rd 27 mags.

    I used to carry a Glock 27 with the 11rd LEO mags for 3 years and never once had a issue with them!
