Magpul’s New Glock Magwell
Just before the NRA Annual Meeting, Glock announced that they are coming out with a Glock magwell. It is dubbed the Magpul GL Enhanced Magwell.
Magpul released this humorous commercial. It is a parody of a medical commercial, akin to Cialis, hinting at “performance issues” and the solution is the GL Enhanced Magwell.
The GL Enhanced Magazine Well is ,ade of a similar polymer as most of their other products. It has a brass threaded insert for securing it into the grip of a Glock.
The magwell is slim so it does not compromise conceal carry. The overal width is just a little wider than the Glock grip.
The magwell is compatible with Magpul’s GL9 magazine as well as OEM mags. They claim it will work with most mag extensions but we won’t know until they are released and we try out different mag extensions with it.
Even though the magwell is minimalistic in its outward appearance, you can see how the ramped area makes for easier mag reloads.
The GL Enhanced Magazine Well wil be available in four different versions. The difference is between Gen3 or Gen4. Then Glock 17 or Glock 19 sized frames.
Of course there are other calibers that have similar sized frames like .40S&W, .357 Sig and .45 GAP.
I spoke with one of the Magpul guys at the NRA Annual Meeting and asked if the Gen3 mag wells will work for Gen2 Glocks. He said it is a 50% chance it will. Glock apparently has varying differences in Gen2 Glocks. So it may not work with the magwell. I am sure a little file and dremel will make it work if there is an incompatibility.
I hope they offer these in sand just like their GL floor plates.

The magwells will retail for only $24.95
