MW003 Polymer Mag Well for Glocks - Glock
Glock 19 Magazine Well: Why Do You Need One?
Adding a magazine well to the grip will make your Glock
19 shoot better, feel better, and be more accurate. The standard Glock 19
grip is flat and may be short for larger hands. The magazine well fits on
the bottom of the grip. It allows you hand to have a more consistent
placement because the magazine well forces you to place your hand in the
same spot every time. Check out the price of a
Small Glock Lightweight Mag Well.

Polymer Mag Well for Glocks - Glock Model 19)
These instructions were included with my purchase of the Glock Mag
SMALL GLOCK LIGHTWEIGHT MAG WELL
The MW003 Polymer Mag Well for Glocks was easy to install and only took a
few minutes. I lubricated the insert with gun oil before I attempted to
insert it into the back hole in the grip of my gun. At first I thought it
was a little big because it did not seem to fit well but after moving it
around and putting the smaller rounded end in first it went in easily with
just a little bit of force. I was able to seat it down to about 1/8" below
the surface without hitting it with a mallet at they do in the installation
When I first grabbed the grip of the gun with the Mag Well installed it had
a totally different feel to what I was used to. My fingers (my pinky in
particular) felt "scrunched" but not in a bad way. It forms a sort of cup
for the hand and makes it easier to grip the gun tighter without using
additional force. It will definitely give me a better grip on the gun when I
shoot it. I think this "reshaping" of the grip will be of more benefit to me
than the ability to insert magazines faster.
RECOMMENDATION - GET ONE
Even if you don't have the need for speedy replacement of your magazine, the
enhanced ability to firmly and correctly grasp the grip of the gun is well
worth the price of the Mag Well.
Problem with Glock 19 Magazine Well?
Not really. When I was shooting at the range yesterday I
rangemaster shoot my Glock 19 with my newly installed magazine well.
After he shot it I noticed that the magazine well became dislodged and
shifted about 1/16" downward. Apparently his hands were larger than mine and
he exerted more squeeze on the grip which forced the magazine downward
slightly. Not really a problem. When I got home I just removed it, cleaned
and reinstalled it and tightened the Allen screw just a little bit tighter
Glock Magazine Wells (Mag Well) Reviews
At the glockstore.com 18 reviewers rated the Glock Mag
Well 4.5 out of 5. Here are some of the most pertinent
"Just make sure the well goes around the grip
and up about 1/2 inch. If not it will lay flush against the bottom of
the grip and not mount securely."
"Anyway, at first I thought that this mag well
just didn't fit and I began to get upset about it, but then after
calming down, I took my Glock tool, stuck it inside of the hex bold on
the mag well and tapped the plug down a little bit. I then pushed on the
plug a little more and the mag well popped on like a glove. *TIP: I
would suggest for anyone else... to put some oil on the Mag Wells' plug
that goes inside of the frame of this pistol and then the mag well may
slide in a little easier for you."
"If you are just putting this on your personal
defense gun, I'd get the polymer one, but if you are getting one for
your competition Glock, I'd get a heavy aluminum one just to help with
"Please take the time to very carefully seat the
screw lock piece properly. It takes some dexterity and no sanding,
filing or Dremel smoothing is needed. It is a precision fit. Get it
started by hand, gently tap with a small mallet until it is about 1/8
inch below the surface, hold the well in place and gently tighten the
cap head screw. It installs easily and looks great. Very functional."
"The extension piece does require modification
for a proper fit, also be careful how much you tighten down the Allen
screw that secures the enhancer to the grip. I followed the
instructional video suggestions to securely tighten the Allen screw and
it cracked the screw hole right on the mold line of the enhancer. This
is not a Glock product! The Glock Store did offer to replace my broken
"I fitted up a polymer mag well on my G34, and I
quickly noticed multiple improvements. The mag well gives the pinkie
finger side of the hand a nice resting place and adds significantly to a
more firm feel of the grip, it almost seems to assist you in getting
lined up quickly, it makes for faster and easier mag insertions, adds
virtually no extra weight (the polymer model), and an unseen extra is
that it gives you a firmer grip on the handle (if you found yourself in
a situation where someone was attempting to take your Glock out of your
hand to turn it against you!). Overall, it adds quite a bit of a secure
feeling to your hand on the grip, yet it's not so large as to be
obnoxious or in the way. And, in a roundabout way, it helps seal up the
back of the bottom of the handle too. It's a pretty snug fit to get it
positioned up fully into position, then the Allen head bolt draws up the
lower portion of the mag well into the locked position against a smaller
wedge insert that goes up in the back of the grip, so it's not going to
drop off! I've shown it to several other Glock owners, and they were
surprised at how much more of a solid grip feel the mag well gives you.
Whadda 'ya waiting' on???....order one today and give it a try, and
chances are that you'll be pretty happy with this addition."
"You get two benefits for the price of one, 1st
you get incredible grip stability and you also get the back strap
