GOOD - It's cheap, feels good in the hand, gives you a better
grip on the gun, improves accuracy and gives your 1 round additional
capacity (suppose to give you two rounds).
BAD - It has a sharp forward edge and
leaves a gap in the gun grip that pinches your fingers each time
you fire it. Fortunately there is a simple "fix"
to this problem.

Pearce PG-2733 Grip Extension
This is what a Glock 26 magazine looks like with
and without the Pearce Grip Extension PG-2733. The PG-2733 has high
customer reviews on the internet mostly due to the great feel of the
grip extension in your hand and the extra room provided for your
pinkie finger. It does give you a better grip on the pistol.
Without Grip Extension
the stock Glock
26 magazine holds 10 rounds.
Pearce Grip Extension
the Glock 26 magazine holds 11 rounds. It is
advertised to hold 12 rounds (two additional rounds) but it

|Back Of Package
The Pearce PG-2733 magazine extension is advertised to give you 2
additional 9mm rounds in the magazine (see picture showing the back
of the package). IT DOES NOT! IT ONLY PROVIDES CAPACITY FOR ONE
If you read the reviews of the Pearce PG-2733 you will find that
the majority of users who installed the grip extension were only
able to load one additional round into their 9mm Glock 26 magazine.
A few indicated the ability to load two additional rounds. It is
unclear on how they did this.

Installation Problems & Help
The instructions that you get in the package is lacking and
insufficient in detail for those not familiar with disassembly and
reassembly of a Glock magazine. See back of package picture above.

Installing the Pearce PG-2733 on a Glock 26 magazine (9mm).
The installation instructions are unclear and there are questions
whether to discard the old insert and install the new insert with
Pearce Grip Extension. If you do, the magazine will hold 11 rounds
(not 12) and function properly. If you install the extension with no
insert, the magazine will hold 12 rounds, but it just doesn't seem
right and there is no locking device to keep the extension on the
magazine. You cannot use the old (factory) insert with the Pearce
Grip Extension. They just don't fit together. To find out what the
manufacturer says is the correct way to install their grip extension
on a Glock 26 magazine I emailed them the following questions.
I am installing your Pearce Grip PG-2733 Grip Extension on a
Glock 26 magazine.
Your product comes with a black plastic magazine insert that
says â€œ#12733 USE WITH PG2733 FOR M27/M33 APPLICATIONâ€.
That implies that you donâ€™t use it for a Glock 26
Am I correct in understanding that I am NOT suppose to
install the #12733 insert into my Glock 26 magazine?
If not, what do I use? The old (factory) insert will not
fit/work with your grip extension.
Someone (on the internet) suggested installing your grip
extension without any insert. It was the only way to achieve
the two round extra capacity that is advertised. If this is
the case, what â€œlocks onâ€ the grip extension to the magazine
and prevents it from eventually wiggling off?
You do use the plastic locking cup when installing the
PG-2733 on the Glock 26. The markings you see are to
distinguish that part for an in house assembly process. We
are sorry for the confusion. The two round extra capacity
will be gained once the spring is fully broken in. So with a
brand new magazine the last extra round will be hard to put
in until the gun has been taken to the range and shot a few
times. If you have any questions you can give us a call at
1-800-390-9420 and we would be happy to answer them.

Shooting With the Pearce Grip PG-2733 Grip Extension
Dry firing and practice with the grip extension installed is
great. It feels good in the hand, gives you a better grip on the gun
and improves accuracy. Range firing is pending to determine whether
the grip extension will pinch your fingers during firing.
Actually firing the Glock 26 with the
Pearce Grip PG-2733 Grip Extension is a different matter.
IT HURTS! It turns out that when the extension is
installed in the grip, it leaves a gap (about the width of a
quarter). This gap together with the sharply pointed forward edge of
the magazine extension pinches your fingers each time the gun is
fired. Fortunately there are some fixes for this problem. See
Glock Magazine Extension Fix.

Pearce Grip PG-2733 Grip Extension Fixes
Cut apiece of bicycle inner tube tire and install it over the
grip of the gun. Pull the lower edge down so that it covers and
wraps around the bottom edge of the grip. This will fill the gap
between the grip and the magazine extension and eliminate finger
pinching. This fix will help but may not eliminate the pinkie
pinch completely. The next fix will do that.
THIS PEARCE GRIP FIX WORKS BETTER! Cut a small piece of black
Velcro strip and adhere it to the magazine extension as shown to
eliminate finger pinching. Use the soft half of the Velcro (not
the scratchy part) with the adhesive backing. Wrap the Velcro
around the sharp edge and on the top ledge to fill the gap.

Both of these fixes for the Pearce Grip PG-2733 Grip Extension
work. If you install the inner tube on the grip you don't have to
modify each magazine extension and it may give you a better grip on
the gun. If you install the Velcro you have to install it on each
