    Apologies if this has been discussed already...

    I have a 19X and Gen 5 G17 (among my Glocks). Since the Gen 5 mags don't fit the 19X because of the lip on the bottom of the 19X grip, can I simply replace the Gen 5 mag floor plates with Gen 4 floor plates? I have extra Gen 4 floor plates laying around. I just want all my mags to work regardless of the Glock.

    I can test this out easily enough, but I figured I'd check here first to save me the hassle of taking apart the mags if it doesn't work.

    Thanks!

    Answering my own question. Indeed it is possible to simply switch the floor plates, either to Gen 4 or aftermarket like Vickers.

    Or even Gen 3's would also work.

  4. Yes the older floor plates will work.
