Magpul has just released two new GL Enhanced Magazine Wells for Full-sized Glock pistols. The new GL Enhanced Magazine Wells add to the previous two options for Compact Glock pistols. The enhanced magazine wells are designed to quickly and easily attach to the Glock frame, and provide a larger and slightly angled surface face to guide new magazines into the magazine well.
The concept of enhanced or flared magazine wells is not new, and has been a standard item with competition shooters for years. By enlarging and angling the lips of the magazine well outward a shooter has a much greater chance for fast magazine replacements during high stress or timed events. The reduction in time to reload, translates to faster times on target. In police work the fraction of seconds saved could make the difference in life and death.
