G26 Finger Pinch with extended mags

I have a 4th Gen G26 on its way to me, including some of the Extended mags that let my little finger fit on the grip instead of under it.
Recall that when I once had this set up before, the mag "pinched" my hand .... anyone else have this problem and a solution for it ?
Thanks

Some use a #17 O-ring around the bootom of the mag. You may need to double check that number.

Thanks ... sounds like a good idea; I'll try that.

Very lightly bevel the top edge of the G26 baseplate.
The edge is rather sharp, causing the pinch between it & the grip.
Use sand paper or a small file,..........it's a free fix.

Had the same issue and just switched to the gap base plates. No more pinching.

just use a knife and "carve" off the sharp points on the front top of the baseplates, make it sort of rounded instead of pointy. i do that to all my extended baseplates before I even shoot them now. You could use a file or sand paper too.

Just shot a G26 and G27 with the pierce extenders. For some strange reason, the G26 tore up my pinkie and left a blood blister.

I have had a problem with my pinky getting pinched when shooting my 26 gen 4. I'm glad to see this thread. I thought I just had wimpy fingers! I've tried tape, but I'll try the "o" ring and sanding the edge.

Thanks for posting this thread, I have the same issues with my Gen 4 26. I've just been learning how to move my pinky quick when doing my reloads.

You getting pinched during reloads or while shooting? I have a recent G26 Gen 3 and three 12 rounders and have put several boxes through it so far. No pinching and my hands aren't all that tough anymore.

Mine happens during my IDPA matches when I am reloading. It didn't happen with my gen 3... only happens with my gen 4. I have noticed it (sometimes) even just putting the mag in before I shoot.

Just do some pushups, and you'll be ok. Try switching to Murphy's or Guinness. Maybe drop the mixers for the liquor as well. Get rid of the shaving cream too.
