Strike Industries: New Glock 19 Extended Magazine Plate

The Glock 19. It’s basically a smaller sized G17 known for it’s concealability and reliability. Some proponents say it’s the epitome of the modern combat pistol. Others point out that it’s the preferred duty weapon for law enforcement around the country. In fact, it’s also used by the military and Intelligence communities as well as an abiding favorite in the defensive shooting crowd. The gun’s capacity is impressive, with standard factory double-stack mags that hold 15 rounds, and even that can be more-than doubled with the 33-round magazines. But what if you want to add just a few more rounds…steering clear of the long-ish 33-round model? Well, now Strike Industries has a new offering that gets you that moderately higher capacity with their new Glock 19 Extended Magazine Plate.

Strike Industries is calling them Extended Magazine Plates. We’re kinda used to calling accessories like this, magazine extensions. No matter. Whatever you call them, they add plus five rounds to G19 OEM double-stack mags.

They’re offered in three different colors, as you can see in the photos. Likely, if you’re looking to maintain concealment, you probably won’t want to go with red. But then, if you’re working toward a patriotic aesthetic, then maybe the red would be perfect?

They’re available in Black, Red, and FDE. Which would you choose?

I can’t help wondering how much, if any, difference would these mag extensions make in concealment and printing through cover garments? This might just be the sweet spot for some foks.
