I just got some +2s for my Glock 17 and 19 mags, but I can't figure out how to put them on.

On my Sig mags, all you had to do was push in the little dot on the bottom, and the floorplate would slide right off. But, this does not seem to work with the Glock mags. Plus, the +2s dont have the spot in the bottom for the little dot. So I am confused.

Or,

Put your glock mag in a vice, surround it with a protective coth first, and apply LIGHT pressure to the sides of the mag near the floorplate.

Then use a small screwdriver to press the floorplate button and pull off the floorplate.

Does anyone know if you need to use a different spring with the +2s??

You do not have to change springs. Although Wolff +10% springs can give you peace of mind.

I've not had trouble with original springs in either my 17 or 19 mags.

So, uh, how often should someone change the springs in their mags?

Well, as they've found fully loaded 1911 mags, from WW2, that still functioned fine, I'd say every 60 years.

I change mine every 2 years. No rhyme or reason, just the length of time I picked. YMMV

My understanding that it was loading/unloading that wore mags out, not storage.
