    Curious if anyone has purchased Glock grip plugs to fill in the opening between the magazine and the grip void. These plugs supposedly help to keep gunk out and help seat the magazine quicker. Thoughts?

    I always buy one to fit my weapon. Just never liked the cavity being open was my main reason for doing it.. .idk about the mag seating quicker though...

    I forgot to mention, you should make an introduction so that we (as a community) may welcome you to the crew.

    Some say its there to let crap fall out of the action. The way i use my Glocks it lets crap in. While it never has given me a problem with dirt dust and so on getting in i have thought about putting one in. The only reason i don't is I use my guns and i don't want the plug to gather water and trap it in there. If i were just a range and back HD and concealed carry user i would for sure use one because the water issue would not be there.....

    The whole grip cavity lets crap from the action fall out is bunk. Otherwise why would they sell models with an optional Taurus style key lock. Yes they exist I have one. Just ask and I'll post a pick. Get all the grip plugs you want. It won't make any difference.
  6. yup, definitely a +1 to get it, I throw a $100 bill up there, never know when ull need it, plus, helps keep gunk out and slot the mag faster
  7. The main purpose of that hole is actually for a lanyard attachment.... not because gunk falls out of the action lol

    I've got two of the lone wolf grip plugs. One for my glock 23 and one for my glock 21sf. It makes it easier for releasing/sliding a magazine. Plus I didn't like the opened hole either.

    I've got one on my G17. Did I need it? Probably not. I just think it looks nice. :D

    I agree. Never seen how that could be. It lets more in than could ever fall out.

    Another reason i dont use one i forgot to mention that someone else talked about is the ise of a TRL. I use one when i hike, hunt.

    Yeah, I'd like to see a pic of that key lock.

    I got a brass plug for my 19. It is a solid piece and weighs about about what 2 rounds weigh. They said it would help balance gun and help with recoil, but...nah. I think they are trying to sell these, ya know?

    Sorry, I can't remember where I got it but I think it was Glockmeister. I only bought it because it was on sale.

    As I mentioned before. The Taurus style internal locking mechanism. Notice the white tab that protrudes when engaged and the porche style key. Yes the key has the Glock logo on it. Cool huh? Pointless if you don't have kids or don't have a safe or something. I just so happened to get this version because it was the only g23 in stock at the gun store. And it's a C model too.

    Didn't mention that the whole gun is stock except for the rear plastic pin that my Glocksmith buddy broke last year. That's OEM though. I do have a 40-9 conversion barrel for plinking too.

    rivalarrival Are we there yet?

    Got one in my G26. I don't notice any improvement in inserting a magazine. I don't like having an open slot that empties straight into the action of the gun. I can't say that I *need* the plug, or that I even have it for any rational reason. I like it being there, and I think it's worth the $4 or so I paid for it.

    Bought my g26 yesterday and literally 5 mins ago just saw the gap an was about to jump on here and start a thread. Just looks odd like something missing.

    Glockmeister makes a good one. It plugs 100%.

    I found Pearce plugs and grip extensions on Amazon (and other accessories) with free shipping. I like Cheaper than dirt, but not when shipping doubles the price! It's almost flush on the 19 and fills in a corner my 36.
