Anyone know of any magazine sleeves to fit the gen 4's?

I have a G26 and would like to run G17 mags for home defense. Although not essential... I would still like them...

Any companies out there?

Very interested in this as well. Alot of folks carry G26's with GAP floorplates but carry a G17 mag as a spare

You don't need anything. Just insert the mag and you're good to go. There are "sleves" grip adapters available from Glock Store (http://glockstore.com/pgroup_descrip/3_Magazines%2B%26amp%3B%2BExtensions/6759_Magazine%2BSleeve%2Bfor%2BGlock/) if you want to have a longer grip.

Semi Off topic.
I saw a video my Hickok45 shooting a G26.
He said he uses the two finger grip all the time.
Even with an extended mag he keeps his fingers off the mag and doesn't use a sleeve.

I've started shooting my G27 with G31 mags that way.
It works really well and is totally reliable.
Plus, no bulky sleeve for my twin G31 re-loads on my belt!

^^^ Yeah, if your dead set on a sleeve, I would recommend the A&G grip extender for the 26/27 (19/23). Here is one that I picked up for my wife when she shoots the 26. Its slightly larger than a standard 19 grip in length. These are not rubber and it's set by a "set screw" so you can adjust it up and have the remainder of the 17 mag extending from the bottom (unless you prefer a Frankenstein-ish large grip flush with the baseplate of the 17 mag).

Thanks for the inputs...but I think we are missing the point of the OP...is there a GEN 4 OPTIMIZED grip extender. Many are running G26 4th gen without any backstrap installed and dont want a "fat" grip extender thats sized for a 3rd Gen at the bottom.

Its reliable until you put your pinky on the mag and squeeze as part of your grip. This changes the angle of the top of the mag and causes ftf. Many here say its perfectly reliable but I work for a decent size Dept that carries 31 and 33. Many of us have had problems using the 31 mag in our 33's. This is different officers with different guns. No mistaken.

X-Grip, I bought mine at Midway. I carry an extra G-19 mag, with my Gen4, G26.

I think the idea is that the sleeve slides on the longer than standard magazine. I don't know of anything remotely normal that attaches to the M26.

I use an X-Grip on a M19 15 round mag for my M26 9mm. It works perfectly. I don't know what more you expect.

The X-Grip is way better than the Ajax.
