View Full Version : G26 12 round mag?

I just noticed 12 round magazines for the G26. Was this at one point stock or is this a aftermarket magazine? My 26 came with 10 round mags and thats all I have heard of them coming with. Why doesnt it come with the 12 rounders?

The Glock-manufactured 12-shot magazine for the G26 is just a 10-shot mag with a "+" floorplate extension. This is what it looks like:

It is easy to make a twelve round G26 magazine but a bit harder to conceal.

Keep your 10 round magazine and just carry a glock 19 or 17 round magazine as a back up.

The extension takes nothing away from concealment. I recommend the x-grip extension and the pachmayr tactical grip glove to make it perfect.

Wifey has Glock factory +2 extensions. They conceal fine, add a pinky grip and 2 more rounds.

I just got a 19 mag and an XGrip for my 26, mainly for the range and nightstand.

To the best of my knowledge, G26 has never been offered with the 12-round mags. They are an after-market accessory.

I own one, and I am not as fond of it as some of the others answering your question. My wife went to buy me a spare mag for a birthday present not long after I got the pistol, and the salesman talked her into the 12-rounder instead of the stock mag. I carry it in my pocket for a backup mag, mostly because she got it for me, and I shoot it at the range, but I actually shoot the little pistol a bit better with the 10-round mags.

There are factory 12 round G26 mags available...

You can buy Glock factory +2 extensions and you can buy Glock factory 12 round magazines. I have both and both work flawless. Even with the 12 round magazine, the Glock 26 conceals well.

:thumbsup:Agreed. I have a Pearce +1 extension on both my stock G26 mags and it only adds about a 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch to the weapon and in no way hinders concealment.

Thanks guys. I just ordered two G19 mags and one G17 mag. Saw the 26 12 round mag and was curious

That is one big plus with the 26. I can just pop a 19 mag in it too and it's good to go

I have both and like them both. The ten rounders are great in a Nemesis in a cargo pant pocket and the twelve are great for carry on the belt. I expected that the 12 would help me shoot better but either the two grips are equal or there is no help for me because at 25 yards I don't see any difference.

cdnn has factory 12 rd glock 26 mags for $39.99
