We decided to take a look at Magpul’s magazine well for the Gen 3 and Gen 4 Glocks. Our conclusion is that its incremental cost is more than compensated for by the improved performance. Installation is a two minute process, and fit and finish are in keeping with Magpul’s reputation.
The magwell ships with all components needed. Installation requires that you insert the magazine well in your grip; then, tighten the provided retaining screw. The only caution is that you not over tighten the screw, which should be flush with the back strap.
In addition to improving magazine change performance, the Magpul magazine well is also esthetically pleasing. We tested it with factory Glock magazines as well as Magpul Glock magazines and there were no alignment issues, all magazine’s used seated smoothly and positively.
If you own a Gen 3 or Gen 4 Glock, this is an accessory worth adding to your Glock pistol.
