I'm thinking they're cheaper cuz of the polymer?I just discovered the XTech +5 too on Instagram, they are cheaper. Does they really fit on P30? Springer extension was marked as VP9/P30 too and they didn´t fit P30, only VP9.

awesome, thanks for the real world feedback!! Are the TF mags polymer? have you drop yours ever? lolMy friend had his HKParts extension come apart after a single drop onto concrete during a reload (so the magazine was empty). Personally, I've had good luck with the Taylor Freelance magazine extensions over the last couple of years.
The Taylor Freelance ones are aluminum, I believe, probably 6061. I have dropped mine many, many times on concrete, usually empty; the older versions had some issues with bent locking plates (which was generally an easy fix, just flip them around), but I've not had any issues with the new locking plates.awesome, thanks for the real world feedback!!

Two carry mags on the left (Gen2s), two practice mags on the right (Gen1s). You can see how beat up the practice mags get. The engraving of the "TF" on the bottom is pretty random, IME, but I believe most of them come engraved. The FDE is factory Cerakote.Do you have a pic of your TF mag extensions?
I shoot with the HKparts extensions regularly and have never had a problem. Even put them through a three day class and they never came apart or had even a hickup. Always fed, the mags always slide free. Maybe I got the only 4 good ones.I wouldn't suggest the HKParts extensions unless you are willing to do a little bit of tinkering with your magazines. They definitely will fly apart if used as directed.
That's a lie. I have the +5 by HK Parts. I didn't have to modify anything. Just installed and it was good to go. Never had any issues.I wouldn't suggest the HKParts extensions unless you are willing to do a little bit of tinkering with your magazines. They definitely will fly apart if used as directed.

The one on the right has a "competition" locking plate, basically you only have to unscrew it slightly to move the plate out the way, makes it easier to clean between shooting stages. I have a couple because Robin ran out of the regular ones for my order, but I've not had any issues using them, though I don't do the cleaning thing.
You can see the one on the left is a lot more beat up, where the magazine has deformed the baseplate some what. It still works fine, no issues feeding or dropping free, and it's been dropped quite a bit on the concrete, so it's only natural, IMO, that the softer aluminum gives way to the harder steel.
Here's how they look in the gun:
I am highly offended by your personal attacksjerkman, you don't load your mags that way?? The HK pistols are so sophisticated, they automatically spin the bullets to their proper seated position before being fed.
Much like that old Nakamichi Dragon tape deck which spun the cassette by itself to play side two.
smiley faces mean their is humorous sarcasm in this post, as we ALL KNOW hope americans can get so defensive about every little thing, i figured i may as well put this spoiler in it to avoid any anger management issues
I have heard from a pretty knowledgeable guy that there are feed issues with them when loaded to capacity, due to the fact the rounds are not supported on the sides at the very bottom, in the sense that there are no ridges to keep the stack consistent.Did anyone try those X-Tech extensions from original post?

Bro... are you really gonna make me explain the joke?Two of those are loaded backwards
