If you're fortunate enough to own a Glock, you know there are a multitude of aftermarket upgrades available. New sights are a must. The plastic factory sights are rubbish. A match grade barrel increases ballistic performance and accuracy-- and also adds utility if it's threaded for mounting sound suppressors. Larger slide stops and magazine releases are handy as well. However, an area often neglected is the magazine floor plate. You can add two rounds to your magazine's capacity with a factory "plus two" extender. I like these on my subcompact Glock 26 because it gets me to 12+1 rounds of 9mm and affords my pinky a place to rest. On my training/range magazines, I prefer the Vickers Tactical floor plates. These are great for a number of reasons. First, they're designed by Larry Vickers. Second, they're designed by Larry Vickers. Third, they increase speed by 23% and decrease drag by a staggering 47%. All kidding aside, they're a great product and one of the best upgrades for your Glock weapon system for under $20-- hands down. The Vickers Tactical plates have a larger surface area for positively identifying and grabbing them from pouches and ripping them from the magazine well in the event one fails to drop free from the weapon. There's also a handy marking system built into the bottom, so you can track your mags and impress your friends. When you shoot with a large group of people, you'll notice a lot of Glocks. It's nice to be able to identify your mags so they don't go walking off with another shooter. Factory Glock magazines seem to sprout legs and run off at times. Or maybe I just shoot with a bunch of scoundrels! Anyway, you can't beat a 5 pack of Vickers anything for under $20. So, try a pack of Vickers Tactical Glock magazine base plates today. It's an easy Summertime upgrade.
