    Glock Grip Plugs

    OK, does anyone with a Glock use a butt plug to fill in the hole on the bottom of the butt? I know, that sounds weird, but you know what I mean. If so, what is a good recommendation for one that snaps in place using the lanyard hole, is flush with the bottom, and doesn't fall out while shooting at the range. I am looking for one for a G19. Thanks for any info.

    Besides looks, is there a reason you want to do this?

    Hi,
    I have a G19 with the plug in it, most gun shops sell them for just under $10, or, you can find them on-line. The reason to do it is to prevent any dirt, etc. from entering the mag well and then into your mag which can cause a few different problems

    I hope this doesn't turn in to a Plug vs. Bead poll.......

    I don't use one BTW. I heard they have a tendency of falling out.

    Not really. Is there a convincing reason not to? Just curious.

    I could have called it a stock plug, but look at all the fun you'd miss!

    And I thank you for that!

    One could argue that if for some reason the mag was stuck in the well, it would be easier to remove without the plug there. Some say it keep's dirt from getting into the grip, but I don't see where it would go once it's in there. Then I have also heard that if you were to submerge the gun in water it would drain better without the plug.

    I have no idea what brand it is, its just the one my LGS happened to have when I bought the gun. I figured it would keep any junk from getting up there, giving me one less place to clean.

    I would imagine as long as the one your looking at has a button that will push into the hole on the back of the grip, it should stay in fine.

    Here's one similar to the one i have:

    I have installed a butt plug in all of my Glocks. Just a thing with me.

    I just re-certified as a Glock Armorer. Glock does not recommend the plugs. Their opinion is that it may trap debris inside the fire-control assembly. They would prefer that debris flow freely out of the gun.

    I don't use grip plugs except on my G34 competition gun. On my G19 and G26, I do not use grip plugs and DO NOT RECOMMEND them if you're gonna carry the gun. For the simple reason if you are in a gunfight and you want to reload or it jams, you will likely have to rip the magazine out of there. It may not drop free. IF you have the grip plug inserted it's much hard to get your weak hand thumb on the back of the magazine to rip it out easier.


    With the grip plug out of there, it's much easier to yank out the magazine. I've had this happen in a shooting competition match while shooting my G19. It could get you killed by costing your precious seconds if you have to reload or get a jam.

    From what I hear, only if the hole is loose or oversized....

    You guys started it...

    I have one in my G22 and G19 I blow out debris with compressed air periodically. Not much comes out though.
