    Does anyone have any of these or have ever used them? To me, they are very 'tacti-cool,' but wouldn't mind knowing if they are a hinderance or benefit.

    I have a few of them, they are great if you do a comp with speed reloads but they just add bulk and get in the way for normal everyday shooting.

    I like them on G26 mags, gives you something to put your pinky on.

    Do you have any pictures of them on a 26?

    For digging mags out of deep pockets on a chest harness they are great. Other than that I have no use for them.

    On the 26, that seems to add a fair amount of real estate without adding alot of extra weight and causing the mag to 'print' more.

    Not a bad deal there.

    I have the Pierce +2 on my 26, has a similar profile and I have not had an issue. The +0 has almost the exact profile and I have heard good things about them but I cannot say personally.

    How so? I've seen folks have trouble seating the mags with them.



    Agreed.

    I think it is all in the way you hold them, I'm not sure. I have seen a few people that have trouble with them, but I have never had an issue with them.

    Wow, I can't believe they split like that! I would send a picture of those to magpul, see if you can get them replaced.
     
  14. All of the magpul stuff that I have used has been very rugged. I would notify magpul of the problem. Just a caution, If you bought the items on EBAY they are probably Red Chinese fakes and not from magpul.

    Got them at GT Distributors. They are the real deal. Magpul sent me some more, but I didn't use them. They should be one solid piece, The base plate is a hard polymer, and the handle or whatever it's called is rubber and glued on the base.
     
  16. Sorry to hear that. I was hoping for an easy answer. I've had long use of the Pearce +2 and +0 bases on my G26 and G19, maybe you could try them. Usually around $10 for a 2 pack.
