TBRCi Releases Micro Magwell for Glocks Gen 1-3

I’m not sure if Glock enjoys the fact that so many of its customers select the previous generation of its products or it loathes it. Most companies that release new products tend to quickly move past the previous generation, but good ol’ “perfect” Glock seems to believe that the new Gen 4 may not be “perfect” by keeping the Generation 3 guns in full-rate production.

As such, accessory companies have often been skipping the latest generation with their development for accessories. Latest is Texas Black Rifle Company, or TRBCi, who has released a snazzy little carry magazine well for the Generation 1-3 glocks. Named the “Micro Magwell” the new product is exactly that, a small accessory for adding just a bit more “flare” for easy reloading while not excessively changing the pistol’s shape. Thus, a flared magwell is a potentially good option for EDC.

Construction is of the usual high-speed, low-drag materials. The body is 7075-T6 aluminum with the military standard type 3 hard coat anodizing to keep the magwell black under the most rigorous insertions. The Mico Magwell is compatible only with the 9mm offerings including the 17, 19, 23, and 32.

The Micro Magwell is currently on pre-order, priced at $75.00 for those opting in early. Retail is pegged at $87.50. Shipment is forecasted for August 14th, 2017.

    That is one ugly grip.
    Bugs can do better than that.

  • Dr. Longfellow Buchenrad

    Unless Ive been lied to all my life, isnt the “magwell” the cavity inside the firearm where the magazine resides, not an attachment or modification to the aforementioned magazine cavity? Im pretty sure thats called flaring. I certainly hope every Glock would have a magwell. It would be pretty useless without one.

    • NamesNStuff

      Let’s call it the “Magwell Mouth Extension”…or…the “Magwell Rimjob”, or no wait, how about the “Feed Hole Slam Ramp”

      I should be the official namer of things.

    • Don

      Technically it is part of the magwell, it is an extension of it that happens to be flared. The mag still resides in it. Pretty strange comment coming from someone using Longfellow as a tag. Last time I checked poets are some of the biggest users of creative licensing… Just saying…

  • Ed

    IDK Frank. But the Gen 3 frame is more comfortable than the Gen 4 Just fine if bother are made.

    • Bigkracka

      OP is full of it, gen4 sells just fine. Love all of mine they run like a top.

  • John

    I can see the future…

    “GLOCK is introducing the NEW GLOCK GEN X! It’s like a GEN 5 but with all the cool features of the GEN 3, the model we used to build, changed it to a way you didn’t like and then changed it back. It’s NEW!”

  • Rob

    Old contracts and the CA market keep the Gen 3 alive. Due to laws Gen 3 Glocks are the only Glocks that can be sold new in CA.

  • jdsonice

    I love my Glock 34, Glock 20 and Glock 43 – all Gen 4.

    • Gun-Toting Racist

      Wow that’s like $3500 worth of guns (I’m in CA, haha)

      • jdsonice

        No not really. More like 1400.00. I guess you guys in CA pay a lot more than we midwesterners do 🙂

  • Jared Vynn

    Need a trigger warning for trypophobes.

    • bernardg

      Good Lord, already itching just by a glance of the picture above.

  • NINJA del TACO

    Just looked on their website. Finally!! They are making parts for my favorite trap tamer. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8b230fc5307fd04633e0a34f915bb516e4f231f026e952e9ed95a5d62e5bc505.jpg

  • Gott im Himmel that’s dusgusting– it looks like someone used a slab of pancreatic cancer for grip tape.

  • Gun-Toting Racist

    Grip by deep sea sponge

  • maddog

    sure hope he didn’t pay for that grip mutilation. looks like something that billy-bob would do after a case of bud light.

  • R. M.

    Why 9mm only? Aren’t all the 9/40/357 frames essentially the same?

  • USMC03Vet

    He must be an operator. Look at that amazing stippling.
    – said no one ever

  • Black Dots

    Bummer these guys are getting to market just before Magpul releases their G19 magwell for about 1/4 of the price.

  • Some Rabbit

    Glock perfection will finally be achieved in their generation 20 pistols.

  • Cymond

    “The Mico Magwell is compatible only with the 9mm offerings including the 17, 19, 23, and 32.”

    Why wouldn’t this work with the 40S&W and 357 Sig models? How is a 40 S&W frame any different than a 9mm frame?

    • R. M.

      That’s my question as well, makes no sense

  • James Earl Jones

    I felt a great disturbance in the glockiverse… It was as if hundreds of Roland specials cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

  • Phillip Cooper

    “The Mico Magwell is compatible only with the 9mm offerings including the 17, 19, 23, and 32”

    Only 9mm, huh?

  • Royce Williams

    I was thinking I might need one until I got to the price. $87.50? Seriously? That’s roughly one fifth of what a new Gen 4 Glock 17, 19, or 26 with tritium sights and 3 mags sells for at GT Distributors. Not sure why the “Texas Black Rifle Company” believes such a minor aftermarket part that at most might cost 3 or 4 bucks to produce would ever be in such demand that anyone other than a very small finite number of suckers with more money than good sense will actually buy a product with a two to three thousand percent markup. Surely that must be a typo and the correct price is $8.75 or maybe $18.75?

    • LGonDISQUS

      The machine time they’re wasting to make this would be better trimmed by getting tubing formed to a generic similar shape, then machined down, rather than bar stock…

  • LGonDISQUS

    $75…
