Default 33 round glock mag

wrong state to ask this question in i know- but does anyone know if the 33 rd glock 9mm mag for a 26 will work in a glock 27? on the bottom of the mag has what looks like a pierce mag extension that says "9mm/ 40sw +2". maybe file down the feed lips to open it up a little? my cousin has one sitting around with no glock 26 and ive got a glock 27 so we were curious. thanks.

The magazine extension can be used for standard 9mm OR .40S&W Glock magazines. Not both.

To the op, yes the mag will fit, the G26 and 27 share the same frame.
Will the mag feed is the question. I've never tried it, but it sounds like you know the difference between the 9mm and the .40 S/W. Whatever you do please stay legal.

The +2's on the 33 rd mag will work for 9MM, 40, and 357sig mags. I do believe that if used on 40's or 357 sig they only allow for 1 extra round.
Also, your standard G27 mag holds 9 rounds, if you install an extended floor plate and your mag hold more than 10 rounds, that is illegal.

It will fit but its will land you in the pokie if caught in Cali. Why not just buy a +2 extension and leave the 33rd mag alone?

There is nothing wrong with 33rd mags, assuming you owned them before 2000

I own a large stockpile of 33rd 9mm mags and 31rd 40 s&W mags....the 9mm mags will fit a 40 s&w frame, but the follower will need to be changed, plus the feed lips need to be opened up

Also why would you want to stick a 33rd in a G27 sub compact, that would be pretty impractical and look really odd

and finally, most importantly

YOUR COUSIN owns the mag, not you, so you did not posses said high-cap before 2000, therefore its a No No....

again- i know the legal ramifications. that being said i failed to mention the mag is texas- the glock 27 is here in my safe. my question was basicly based around the fact that 26 mags will "snap" into a 27 and vice versa. just curious if anyone has ever filed down the feed ramps on a 26 mag to make it work in a 27. and i couldnt even legally own a handgun in 2000 so i do not own any hi cap mags.

Wouldn't adding a +2 extension to a post-ban 10 rounder be illegal?

The Glock 9x19mm 33 round magazine will fit in a Glock 27.
However, the .40S&W is too fat to feed.
You will have to modify (dremel/file the feed lips, replace the follower) the magazine in order for it to use .40S&W cartridges.

Yes, but the standard mag for a G27 holds 9 rounds and the +2 is only with a 9mm round. When used with the 40 cal or the 357sig it adds 1 round.

Anyone actually done this and had it work properly? I have a brand new 33 rounder i want to use with my glock 35, but im considering just getting a aftermarket high capacity 40 mag instead of possibly ruining the 9mm mag.

That has nothing to do with anything,

aslong as his cousin is there, present, he can use the mag no worries.

You mean you want to rebuild your 9mm mag into a 40 cal mag?

I'm just saying because what you just posted is, lets say............borderline to say the least.

You cannot end up with more hi caps (I fricken' hate that word) than you started with, that would be manufacturing a "Large capacity mag".
That would be a felony.

Outside of the G18, they're more of a trigger finger excercise machine than a working tool, but a loaded 33 rounder makes a hell of a shillelagh.

Thanks, I understand the law and how it applies to me and what Im doing.

Besides, I'd end up with one less high cap mag than I started with and it being lesser-caps with 40 caliber

Anyway, I'd like to know if anyone actually got this to work well.
