    A great functional product at a great price! A true compliment to the Glock 43….Thanks MagGuts!

    I only recently received the new MagGuts 43+2 magazine extension. It is easy to install, the instructions were spot on and it is very well built. I can not comment further on it since I have not been to the range to test its reliability. It will go in to my primary CCW pistol.  I will comment more after range testing….

    Like all MG products, this one is a winner too. I have MG extensions in all my G42 and G43 mags 😬

    Extremely disappointed!! First of all, the MagGuts +2 magazine spring was extremely difficult to install into the magazine tube and slide the base on. Once I accomplished installing the spring and attempted to load the magazine, the magazine would only accept 7 rounds. I removed the base plate, removed the MagGuts +2 spring, checked to make certain the follower was installed properly, reinstalled the MagGuts +2 spring, slid the base plate on and again attempted to load the magazine. Again, it would only accept 7 rounds. I disassembled the magazine for the third time and checked the lower MagGuts +2 spring and noticed a “kink” in the spring that was apparently stopping the spring from compressing completely and when the spring did compress it did so at an angle therefore not allowing the spring to completely compress to accept the 8th round. I baled out on putting the MagGuts +2 spring in my EDC and returned to my MagGuts +1 magazine. I can’t/won’t trust the MagGuts +2 spring. I have been carrying the MagGuts +1 for over a year and have had zero issues with it in my G43. Bottom line……..MagGuts +2 was a complete waste of time and money. It now resides in my “Junk” holster drawer!

      The conversion should not be difficult to install and it should take the extra two rounds without any problem (with plenty of space to spare!).
      Based on the symptom, it sounds like a simple assembly step may have been overlooked. Please refer to an email that we sent from support to help guide you through getting this working.

    This is a little lengthy but I think this review is worth the read. I was on fence about purchasing a g43 or G43x for some time as my EDC. Going back and forth between capacity and deep concealability. This product was the deciding factor. This baseplate is smallest I could find for two rounds. It still provides enough real estate for the pinky to rest comfortably (if you don’t have big bear paws) without hindering concealability. This product gives me the option to appendix carry without worrying if I’m printing. And, the two extra rounds puts the g43 back into relative competition with the g43x without the excessive frame size. So it does exactly what it’s advertised. Now, the two negatives… do not overlook the installation instructions. There is trimming to the magazine to be done. If you overlook this step, you’ll be scratching your head wondering why it only fits 7 rounds. Follow instructions. It will fit 8 rounds, comfortably. Second, it’s the price. At more than the cost of a stock mag, it’s a little pricey. Also considering you’re replacing almost all of the mag with the kit it’s kinda acceptable. But apparently it doesn’t matter that much because I’m ordering another for my backup mag. But, for a good quality product that does exactly what is advertised, I guess you gotta pay to play. Now… most important, reliability. I’ve put about 700 rounds through the gun. I’ve used FMJ, HP, synthetic coated, 115gr, 124gr 147gr and 150gr rounds through the modified mag and a stock mag also mixed, assorted and alike to get a picture if there is gonna be any feeding issues. I have had 0 malfunctions with all the different types of ammo and the slide locks to the rear on empty every time this far. When I get the second one, I’ll run the same test, hopefully it runs as flawlessly as the first one. So far, it’s a great product and I’m willing to carry it for my EDC and trust my life with it. I hope this helps anyone looking and trying to decide if it’s worth the money. I do believe it is. Just my opinion.

  13. Brett (verified owner)

    I got the plus 2 but could only fit 7 rounds total. I sent an email to ask about it and possibly return it but got no reply. I followed the instructions and had a friend look at it too to make sure I wasn’t doing something wrong. Poor product with poor customer service.

  14. Jason C. (verified owner)

    Great product. I like it. Works without any problems. Easy to install.

  16. Gene W. (verified owner)

    Works great, but pay attention to the directions about trimming the excess plastic inside the magazine tube. It didn’t look like there was much there, but it was enough to prevent the magazine from accepting the 8th round. Once i trimmed it with my pocket knife, the 8th round went in without a problem. To the reviewer that threw his in his “junk drawer’, you can send it to me. I’ll pay the postage!

    I’m a big fan of MagGuts +1 and have been using them for some of my carry guns including G43 with great success. MagGuts +2 is smaller (and thus extends much less) than any other +2 mag extensions for the G43 I have seen. I haven’t shot nearly as many rounds with MagGuts +2 as have with MagGuts +1, but so far they have been reliable with two types of JHPs that I tested.

  18. Robert Davies (verified owner)

    I could not manage to get 2 extra rounds into my magazine. 1 was no problem but no 2. I also could not find a video on your sight on u-tube that showed installation. I previously purchased a unit from you that added 1 extra round, now I have 2 magazines that hold 1 extra round.

    Fantastic product! Fits 8 no problem with room to spare making racking of the slide easy. The only criticism is the should be some finishing of the edges of the plastic, as there were a few sharp corners making the grip uncomfortable. I took care of it with some very fine sandpaper. I fee this product makes the G43 what it should have been.

  20. Scott G. (verified owner)

    This is my 2nd kit for Glock 43. Immediately ran 200 rounds through it. Also, I have both 7 and 8 round conversations for Kahr CW380. So far, flawless. Very pleased.

  21. Michael (verified owner)

    3 out of 14 runs starting with 8+1 (124g round-nose, several brands) resulted in a Failure to Feed (last round, 4th round, 6th round). Perfect grip-length and feel.

    Arrived quickly, assembly was as described, accepted 8 rounds, ran flawlessly through 50 round test. What’s not to like?

  25. nic (verified owner)

    Have not tested at the range or done 1000round test yet.
    Since I recieved I have loaded 8 rounds and kept it loaded every day. When I can, I unload and load several times. Seems the spring is still strong.
    But initial thoughts… big plus on 2 more rounds.
    I had to use a dremel to shave down high points that would dig into my gut when carrying in the waist band. The high points felt like something sharp stabbing me.
    As a primary mag it’s good. But if I use as a secondary then, quick loads pinch my skin as the back of mag seems to pinch my hand.

  26. Garry G. (verified owner)

    The conversion took just a few minutes and came out as advertised. Holds 8 and functioned flawlessly. Be sure to trim off the excess plastic at the inside bottom rear of the mag. I did two and they both needed trimming. It’s really easy to do.

  27. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Probably the best possible upgrade to a Glock 43. I like the increased purchase for my pinky and love +2!

  28. Jasmine (verified owner)

    Odd looking spring setup, but it works perfectly. I can fit 8 rounds in the mag with no issue. I have already run a mix of 147 and 124 gr ammo through it. 400 rounds total and not a single issue! I will be fitting all my G43 mags with the MagGuts spring kits.

  29. Charles L. (verified owner)

    I have the Pearce +1 extensions on all my mags except one Taran Tactical +2. I like the Taran extension but to me it’s a tad too long for concealed carry. I saw a lot of reviews on the MagGuts and was impressed so I bought one. I didn’t use it until I had a chance to go to the range and run a number of rounds through it. It performed flawlessly and is as easy to carry concealed as the Pearce. I liked it so well I bought another….You will not be disappointed. You will be impressed.
    Assembly is straight forward with well written instructions but pay attention to the video showing excess plastic in the Glock mags….it will hinder +2 capacity.

    100 rds so far with no malfunctions.

    Excellent product. So much happier with my G43 now. Adds just enough finger extension but not too much to take away from the gun’s size.

    I tried out the new mag guts in my g43 this weekend and the results were excellent. I shot 3 mags with 8 + 1 flawlessly. I ended up shooting 109 rounds without any issues at all. Very pleased! Thanks magguts, I really like having the two extra rounds and the service provided was as good as could be asked for.

  46. Elijah (verified owner)

    So far it seems to be an excellent product. The hardest part was dismantling the original magazine. The new parts went together smoothly and 8 rounds fit very well.

  47. Matthew W. (verified owner)

    Works perfect. Great fit and fast shipping.

  48. William J. (verified owner)

    Looked like a great product but after 2 hrs I gave up trying to get the spring into magazine and the cover plate back on. I figured it would be tough but not impossible for me.

  49. Glen (verified owner)

    Makes me much happier with my 43, smallest +2 for the G43 on the market. Install is a little tricky, but very straight forward. Looks great, functions perfect. Already carrying it on a daily.

    Hint* if you cannot fit the extra 1 or 2 rounds, your mag spring is sitting off centered. Disassemble and reassemble as needed. Took me a couple tries to get right.

  50. Dave (verified owner)

    Great product, adds plus two as advertised to g43 mag. The only ‘complaint’ or suggestion for improvement is the strength of the grip plug material that is used to retain the assembly against the mag body and base plate. There are two tiny tabs that hold this plastic plug in place and you must be careful not to exert too much force on this piece during installation else the tabs could be sheared off. Second, other users have said they cannot get 2 rounds in. They have either not followed the instructions and cleaned off the extra plastic that may be present during manufacturing, OR, the flat spring oriented itself vertically when attaching the baseplate. If the flat spring goes vertical, it cannot lay flat thus acting like a round limiter. Trim the plastic and compress the spring flat and you should have no problems. It’s a great quality product from initial impression. Time will tell in regards to reliability and function but it looks to be a solid upgrade. Worth the cost if your goal is to minimize printing/small frame footprint yet add +2 rounds to the factory g43 mag.

  51. George P. (verified owner)

    My G43 now holds 8+1 and has been flawless though a couple hundred rounds and this extension is still smaller than a pearce +1. I would recommend this to others and have already. Alot of people I work with carry S&W Shield 9mm’s off duty, and I recommend Magguts to them as well. Stay safe out there.

  52. Ken Evans (verified owner)

    Enhances the capacity of the 43 to make it more competitive with the Sig P365. After installation, your product functions flawlessly. I am very pleased and planning on buying more “guts” for my 43 magazines.

  53. Jonathan (verified owner)

  54. Mark T. (verified owner)

    Overall a good product and it works well. However, there are some sharp edges that dig into my palm on the base plate. Some extra buffing and polishing would take this product from good to great.
