When building Ivanthetroll’s Menendez Mags I mistakenly ordered extra power springs. Rather than order regular springs like any rational human being, I decided to design mag extensions. In the process I remixed the original Menendez baseplates to work with OEM mags as well.
There are 2 versions of the extensions. V1 is the original smooth design and V2 is the revised design. V2 is smaller and features a locking tab for the rear. Additionally, it features cut outs along the side to assist with removing magazines from mag pouches or magwells.
What You’ll Need:
- PLA or PETG. I originally designed and did the bulk of testing in PETG due to PETG’s flexibility being better for interfacing with the OEM glock mag locking tabs.
- A printer capable of printing PLA or PETG. I used the Ender 3.
- An appropriate Glock mag spring (+10%/+13% for the extension, OEM for the baseplate).
- Glock magazine body and follower of your choice (can be OEM or Menendez). If using the non-extended baseplate, an OEM or Menendez locking tab.
- Print on the front of the extension/baseplate.
- Supports: touching bed only
- Layer height: anything from .12 to .32 works
- Shells (aka perimeters): 10 inner/outer (this is probably not necessary, but I tend to go overboard on strength.)
- The only issue currently with the design is that it doesn’t work when using my Glock Magwell. I’m working on a redesign which should fix the issue.
Don’t have a printer?
