    GAP mag floorplates in a Smartcarry?

    I'm considering these instead of my current Pearce mag pinky extensions for my Glock 26:

    G A P H O M E

    However, they seem to stick out forwards, which may be an issue with my Smartcarry holster - forcing the gun into a slight cant.

    Anyone use these GAP floorplates with either a G26 or G27 in a medium-sized Smartcarry? Feedback?

    Thanks!

    Those are the ultimate for control of your baby glock with out added length extensions, but I cant answer your question about Smart Carry.

    GAP Floorplate

    I don't see how adding a Pearce Grip extension or a GAP floorplate makes much of a difference under the circumstances. I carry my G26 in a "Smartcarry" holster at work all the time. I find carrying my G26 very comfortable.

    I'm including a picture of my G26 & a 15 round magazine in my "Smartcarry" holster for you to see how it looks when I carry at work.

    That's my exact setup, minus the sleeve for the spare 15-rd mag. I can shoot the 26 fine without it on the 15-rd spare mag, so I decided to skip the added bulk.

    I'm thinking the GAP floorplate might "tent" the pants fabric a bit less - but no-one has noticed my G26, nor the G19 I used to carry in my Smartcarry.

    I've tried carrying the 15-round magazine with & without the sleeve. I've noticed that it doesn't make that much of a difference to me. I just don't find the the weight of the sleeve makes that much a weight difference. At times I only carry the stock 10-round magazine with a Pearce Grip extention. While I'm at work as an "unarmed" security guard I prefer to carry the 15-round magazine.

    You do raise a valid point that the floorplate might "tent" the pants to some degree. But to say that it would make a major difference, nah, I don't see it.

    And, like you said, no one has ever noticed the bulge of my G26 in the smartcarry holster yet. I doubt anyone will in the future either.
