what long term stress (if any) is there having the mag extend from a pistol. i'm looking to try G22 mags in my G23. thanks!

There is nothing to worry about. The mag is well supported in the magazine well and there should not be any significant downward pressure that would stress the magazine release. I use a G19 magazine in my G26 all the time and I have never had any problems.

Don't forget your grip adapter, rocky.

I only wish they'd texture and checker them to better match the frame. Otherwise, they're a great addition to your CCW kit.

Edit to make link hot.

there is no damage caused by doing this. One reason glocks are so popular among LEOs. Our duty mags fit our back ups. Big plus in my mind.

Me too. That's what sold me on using Glock. Carry the G-35 and G-27 for duty.

as an added benefit, if you smack the longer mag in hard enough you can usually get the slide to drop, chambering the first round.

You should have seen the looks I got when I strolled into Roll call with a Glock 18 mag sticking out of my 19.
