ZEV Technologies, known for their plethora of attractive and high-end Glock accessories, has released yet another attractive and high-end Glock accessory, this time turning their machining expertise to magazine extensions for OEM Glock magazines. ZEV had previously released a magazine extension for Magpul’s GL9 series of magazine which is potentially a moot product, as Magpul released a 21 round version just a bit ago.
Like the Magpul oriented release, the new base pad is extremely attractive, manufactured from billet aluminum. The body is milled with both aesthetic cuts and functional ones including flaring the bottom of the magazine for solid grip purchase and dimpling the bottom of the magazine when beating full magazines into battery.
Zev’s system consists of three parts, the extension housing, the bottom pad, and an high-power spring for function when loaded to its full 22 (17 + 5) round capacity for 9mm. For .40 S&W / .357 Sig shooters, additional capacity is rated as +4 due to the larger rounds. The extension will work with any standard capacity magazine for generations of 9mm Glocks (19, 17, 34, etc.) and their .40 S&W / .357 Sig counterparts.
The pad is available now directly from Zev and through their dealer network. Available colors including a visually striking red and standard anodized black. Retail is pegged at $44.00, not including the OEM compatible magazine.
