OK this may sound like a dumb question, but I only have a M19 and a M26. Are Glock 17 mags longer than Glock 19 mags? Will Glock 19 mags fit in a 17?

Yep, they're longer. (about 1/2 inch, I think)

Nope.

The 17 however should work in the 19.

My 20 mag works in my 29.

Glock says, with the exception of single stack .45's, that any magazine that is long enough will function in any model of Glock as long as it is the same caliber.

Two of my co-workers carry the 19 with 17 high caps in them. It kinda looks like the mag has been partially ejected because it sticks out the end of the grip some, but they function and fire just fine.

Thanks guys. I knew the 17 mags would fit in the 19. I regularly use my LE 19 mags in my 26. I always wondered how much bigger the 17 is compared to the 19. It may be my next purchase.

glock.com has all the specs listed in a table, for your viewing pleasure.

Ballistic tip, what does an after market barrel have to do with this

Heck, just get a Scherer 32 rd mag. It'll work in the 26, 19 and 17. Keep it as back up, for a "tactical reload". Mind you, it'll look like a black broom stick, hanging from your gun. The upside, is that it'll hold 188% more rds than a std 17 rd mag. Although they look silly in a pistol, they work. They will also work in a Keltec sub 2000.

Edited to answer the original question:
Yes the G17 mags are slightly (about 5/8) longer thanf the G19 mags. To avoid accidentaly trying to put a G19 mag in a G17 (yeah I know the difference, but in the dark, in a hurry?) I keep only G17 mags ready.
