I was wondering if the factory Glock 33 round magazines are just as reliable as the 17 round Glock magazines? Do they have more failure to feed incidents?

Those 33 rounders do look cool when you turn your gun sideways all gangster style.
You know i read in school that it is easier to slide stuff sideways than to push it up, I always rotate my gun.
That way if i tip it a bit farther they just rolls into the gun.

The Glock factory magazines are reliable. Some of the after markets are not.

I’m not sure but they sure do look Kewl when you post your gangsta pic on Facebook. :-)

A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

Short answer?

Yes...they are reliable.

 

They were originally designed for the Glock 18 full auto 9mm's....not as a novelty.

They just so happen to fit in 17's 19's and 26's.

Bonus:

If you qualify for your FCCL with a 9mm Glock?.....

You wont have to change magazines and you'll have 3 rounds left over.   :)

The 33 round mag is almost twice as good as the 17 round mag.   Simple math, really :)

Mine have been just as reliable.  I have purchased several non-oem; but have not tried them yet.  As previously stated, they were designed for the Glock 18 so you'd expect them to be reliable.

He's carrying the whole 9 yards in his belly button.

Come on now. You seriously asking if a factory glock mag is reliable? Or are you trying to find out who has one? Lol

I use mine with the Ruger PC Carbine which supports Glock Magazines. 33 Rounds means twice as much fun as a 17 round magazine. 


Thank you

Same here. I also have some Magpul 21rd Glock mags for it.

How do those work? I have never used those so your insight into reliability would be much appreciated.
