Hey Guys,

Headed to the shop to purchase a Glock 43 tomorrow and naturally I am going to want some more mags.  I am looking to pickup at least 4 more mags. Where is the best and cheapest place to pick these up online? Any help is appreciated. I will be picking up a few TTI base pads for some of the mags as well. Probably two +1's and two +2's

Take care,

-SS

Brownells seems to have them at a decent price ($25).  Not sure if they still have them in stock though.  I think just about everyone on ARFCOM neckbearded them when they first went on sale.  I may or may  not have done it too..

Thanks for the reply.. Have they always been $25? Was there a special sale when they first came out? Thanks again.

I purchased a new G43 and installed ameriglo night sights and ghost edge connector. I have 4 mags all the number 1 mags. Two I left stock OEM6 rounders and one I put on taran tactical +2 base plate (with new spring provided) and the other strike industries EMP G43 +2 second gen base plate (with a spare brand new taran tactical spring).
With FMJ 115gr winchester white boxes everything performed flawlessly. G-43 shot great, sights were great and ghost edge worked well. I tried out Federal HST 124gr +P, Federal HST 147gr, Federal HST 147 +P and Speer 124 +P gold dots. They all performed flawlessly out of the OEM 6 rounders. The Federal HST 147 +P consistently shot the tighter groups while all were acceptable groups.
BUT in either of the +2 mag extensions I had consistent failure to feed with ALL the different self defense loads. Most failure to feeds were on the last 7th or 8th round.
So I replaced the stronger springs with the factory 6 round spring and +2 base pads and I had greater failures. Some were at the second round, some the fourth and some last seven or eighth. Just to make sure I used my other OEM 6 rounders and again all self defense loads functioned flawlessly.
For me I could only get the FMJ to perform with the +2 base pads. ALL of the self defense loads had failure to feed issues with the +2 base pads with either stock spring or taran tactical supplied spring.

Thanks for the replies. I'll definitely run a few boxes through them all and see what performs best for carry.

I seem to read similar things about the TTI +2 basepads. It's disappointing to say the least. I don't know why TTI hasn't addressed the issue which is obviously a design and/or manufacturing flaw. By contrast, it appears the +1 basepads are good to go.

I'm interested in the Vicker's +2 extensions. The price is right and they're pretty close to the factory pinky extension in look and size. Those come with a spring, too. Maybe someday Glock will release a factory +1 or +2 extension that works reliably. Until then, I guess we're forced to explore aftermarket options.
