When the Gen5 Glocks were announced, reactions were a mixed bag. Some people welcomed changes like the flared magwell, while others either didn’t want it or thought it wasn’t enough. Well, for the people who wanted more flare in their lives, a new option now exists. True to themselves, Strike Industries has released a sharp, minimalistic magwell for Gen5 Glock 19/23 frames. This is the Strike Industries GEN5 Magwell.
The Strike Industries GEN5 Magwell for GLOCK™ G19 was designed to provide easier reloading of the magazine while adding SI styling. With the added front lip of the magwell, this SI magwell gives improved grip support. Keeping to the slender factory design of the pistol grip, the benefit of adding a funnel-like magwell to help prevent the dreaded reload bobble outweighs the added material of this SI G5 Magwell. Add consistency and cut fractions of seconds off your reloads now with the Strike Industries GEN5 Magwell for GLOCK™ 19 while comfortably carrying your pistol on your hip or in your waistband.
Strike Industries – GEN5 Magwell for Your Gen5 Glock
Strike lists the features as:
– Flared magwell for easier magazine Insertion
– Improved grip support
– Ease of installation
– High-strength polymer
– Perfect pairing with Strike EMP
A very reasonable $19.95 is the asking price for one of these minimal but functional upgrades to your Gen5 Glock 19 or 23. These will work on pistols with or without the half-moon cut. Unfortunately for you 19X shooters, these will not work with your gun. Also, users of larger backstraps may need some garage modifications to fit, which Strike will not take responsibility for. These are available now and can be found on Strike Industrie’s website. As I always recommend, keep in touch with Strike Industries through their Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter pages.
