ESD Magwell

$109.99

The ESD Magwell enhances your reloading with a purpose-driven flare. Every curve, every angle, and every feature on the ESD Magwell is intentional and aligns with our mission to enhance a shooter’s capabilities using human-centered design. Featuring symmetrical side cutouts for stripping magazines, the ESD Magwell allows for easy removal of flush-fitting magazines as well as those that have an extension. Additionally, a third cut-out is located on the front of the ESD Magwell. This third cut-out is especially useful in low light/ no light conditions and serves as a reference point for the shooter and allows them to focus on the task at hand rather than worrying about fumbling a magazine during a reload. It can also be used as an additional access point for stripping magazines.

This product currently fits only Glock full-frame double-stack Gen 5 pistols chambered in 9mm and .40. Gen 5 Glock 19s and Generation 3 and 4 magwells are in development and will be released later.

The ESD Glock Gen 5 Magwell allows for a greater margin of error when inserting a magazine and eliminates the potential for parallel surface contact by using a combination of wide angles countered by harsh angles. It will even “course correct” the magazine back on track if it is ever inserted at an off-angle. The angles on the outside of the ESD Magwell flow seamlessly with that of your firearm and create a nice shelf for your hand while simultaneously not creating any hot spots.

The ESD Magwell is proudly manufactured here in New Hampshire and want to support American manufacturing as well as our local community at every opportunity. For us, It’s important to not only source a quality product but also work locally with those we trust to maintain strict quality standards at every step of the manufacturing process. The ESD Gen 5 Glock Magwell is made of high-quality 6061-T6 aluminum and includes all the hardware necessary to mount it.

The ESD Magwell is currently available for full-frame Glock double-stack Gen 5 pistols chambered in 9mm and .40, with support for other handguns coming in the future. Gen 5 Glock 19s have a different angle from full-frame Gen 5 Glocks where magwells interact so a different version is required. We are developing a Glock 19 Magwell and this will be available shortly for those who want to use our Magwell on Glock 19’s. The ESD Magwell can fit on a Glock 19 but there is a risk that your mags won’t drop freely depending on the tolerances of your frame and magazines so at this time we recommend waiting until we offer the G19-specific Magwell. Glock 19X’s can use ESD Gen 5 Glock Magwells but require modifications to the 19x frame and although the 19x states its a Gen 5 handgun its frame is that of a Gen 4 so for best fit in the future we recommend using our Gen 4 full-size magwell. Edgar Sherman Design LLC is not liable for any modifications made to your handgun. Treat all firearms as if they are loaded and ensure you have properly cleared your firearm before installing the ESD Glock Magwell. 

Below is a list of Functional magazine extensions that are known to work with the ESD Magwell. This list is most up-to-date with our CS team so if your magwell isn’t on the list feel free to email us at contact@edgarshermandesign.com for updates! The list below covers what we know to work, we are looking at design changes to accommodate a larger amount of baseplates but timelines for changes are unknown and our prioritization was for Glock OEM baseplates and extensions upon launch.

  • OEM Glock baseplates and extensions
  • Parker Mountain Machine Baseplate for Glock
  • Landers Weapon System
  • Arrendondo* (Small amount of sanding on the corners required)
  • SLR Rifleworks
  • Shield arm extensions on OEM mags* (Must back out the pin that holds the extension in place)
  • Odin Works
  • Train With Purpose
  • Jagerworks Engineering* (minor rubbing /wear towards the inner rear portion of the Magwell, mag locks into place)
  • Taran Tactical* (will push down the baseplate retention pin and scratch the back of the Magwell. With modification this can be prevented, email CS for more information)

  1. Charles Rodriguez

    Impressive design, workmanship and function, love how it mounts on to my G45, non intrusive to my OEM mags w/Zev poly baseplate & PMAG’s. Backstrap screw is headless no xtra hump. 110% satisfied!!! Btw love the hockey tape.

  2. Damarius I (verified owner)

    I just received my ESG magwell and I have to say it is badass!!!!! I have a Grey Ghost Precision Glock 19 Gen 3 build and this magwell fits it! The tight tolerance allows for it to fit just fine with no alterations and no modifications to the build at all! So if you have a custom Grey Ghost glock build it will fit. I can’t promise the same for any other build so buy at your own discretion

  3. Jim K (verified owner)

    Awesome product!! Fits perfectly on my G45. I use Taran mag plates and the pin does rub when you feed the mag. The mag fits securely though!

  4. Reaper (verified owner)

    The ESD mag well is a welcome edition to the Glock Gen 5 build. The ease of installation is incomparable to the ease of mag loads. The design was extremely well thought out and focused on actual shooter mechanics and getting further left of bang. My only negative remark is now the rest of my weapons must wait for their variants of the ESD mag well. Truly a sensational piece E.

  5. Carl H

    A well designed and manufactured product, but with some limitations. The design does not allow for a beaver tail extension on my Glock 19 Gen 5. Due to the tight tolerance around the flair of the magwell, it creates a little bit extra tension on a fully loaded mag not allowing it to drop completely free. Though an empty mag will. Maybe this is a bonus. I’ve had no issues with a tac mag change. Still currently in the testing phase. Overall I like the tight tolerances and quality.

    • Edgar Sherman

      Hi Carl, with some small modifications to your back strap on the lower area that secures into the plug space of a Glock frame you can get the full functionality of your back strap with an ESD Magwell!

  6. Silas H (verified owner)

    Great looks, feels good. I thought the side cut outs would cause issues with magazines catching but I’ve had no instance of that yet. Not been to the range but have done quite a few dry fire reloads. I use aerondo mag extensions. That will not work unless you file down the front part of the baseplate. All in all this thing came with nice packaging. I really liked the fact that they include both Allen wrenches with it. Will keep an eye on other ESD products

  7. Luis Morales (verified owner)

    Very rugged feeling mag well. Design allows for an easy mag change. Perfect fit for my Gen 5 G17

  8. Matt C

    Love the design but have been having issues with Glock magazines not dropping freely. This has happened with both semi loaded and empty mags. The last 1/3 of the ejected mag ends up stuck.

  9. Grant Yount (verified owner)

    I love this magwell! I was having some issues with mags not dropping free, but apparently removing the rear screw is a part of the instructions that I missed. Once I did that, all problems gone. Seriously great magwell.

  10. tom wasilewski (verified owner)

    This company reeks of awesomeness and quality. EXTREMELY happy with my purchase. As The Terminator said; “I’ll Be back.” DE OPPRESSO LIBER.

  11. Dave G (verified owner)

    This magwell fit perfect on my gen5 G34. Beautiful design, quality craftsmanship, perfect fit!

  12. Jason C

    Love the look and function of the magwell with stock baseplates. I’ve ran into issues using extended baseplates such as Odin Works and Arredondo. Both extensions prevent the magazine from fully being seated.

  13. Abel (verified owner)

    Love it. Fits my G47 excellently and doesn’t print through my shirt.

  14. Nathan P (verified owner)

    The Quality of both the Packaging and the Magwell is MAGnificent!!! Easy to Install and Fitment is on Point. Purchased for both Gen 5 G17 and G34 in the OD and FDE as soon as they were restocked. Highly Recommend and will Purchase Again.

  15. Lukas Rodriguez (verified owner)

    Easy install, all tools provided, super clean look . 10/10 in my book!

  16. Jonathan

    Honestly, I can’t find an angle this thing won’t feed your magazine cleanly. Use it for basic range fun and competition use without issue. It’s hard to convey how high quality it looks as feels, while most magwells with this level of functionality just kind of feel like a hunk of metal by comparison. Took a dremel to the inside to make it work perfectly with Taran extensions, and have had zero issues after thousands of reloads.

  17. Aofan Xu (verified owner)

    Shipping was super fast, got the Magwell in my mail the next day. Installation was easy, and it fit my Glock pretty well. Will recommend to someone who is looking for a Glock Magwell!

  18. Matt (verified owner)

    Great product. Functions well. Great design and quality. Only suggestion would be to redesign in a way to better accommodate Taran Tactical magazine extensions, which have the retaining pin in the rear.

  19. Paul (verified owner)

    Top quality, perfect fit precisely manufactured and great company and customer service!

  20. MIKE A (verified owner)

    Used a dremel and made a little notch to accommodate my Taran Tactical Mags and it works great, love the design. Great magwell

  21. Sean (verified owner)

    For work, competition, carry this is the right magwell. The design is well thought out and it looks great. This product has only improved the function of the weapon. Impressive quality work without flashy cheesy colors or other non essential crap. Works. Looks good. Works. Takes a beating. Works.

  22. Gregory Coleman (verified owner)

    This is the best magwell I’ve used to date, and I’ve used a bunch. The design is perfect & simply genius.

  23. Josh S.

    I’m just a dude who decides to make a useful Gucci glock and this was a magwell I liked looking at so I ordered it off palmetto state armory (only place in stock at time of purchase) i ended up getting the FDE version but looking at it it more resembles the “clear anodized” pictures then the FDE pictures. The FDE pictures makes it look almost like a light chocolate color but I guess the reality is it looks more like a Anodized gray with a hint of tan. Its not a BIG deal for me since I plan on using my gun so things matching perfectly isn’t going to make me return it but my Gucci glock is turning into another frankengun like they always do cuz nothing ever matches every remotely. 5/5 for what it is. 4/5 for color being so different from picture (even with the anodizing color warning)

  24. Felipe (verified owner)

    The FDE is kind of on the Grey side
    I have the large backstrap on my G17 gen 5
    Had to use the dremel on the half moon hole to have the plug to fit in it
    After installed, the magazines don’t drop free… So the dremel was needed again
    But after all that
    It is working great
    And looks neat

    • Edgar Sherman

      Glad to hear you managed to get it to work for you! Going forward if you ever have issues please don’t hesitate to reach out to our customer service team via email(contact@edgarshermandesign.com) so we can trouble shoot as well and see if we can get everything running without having to pull out the Dremel! And we hear you with the FDE, anodizing is unfortunately out of our control and very random so every batch of FDE is its own unique shade! Thanks again for the support!

  25. Mike (verified owner)

    Great for for my hand on a full size glock lower. Texture is *chef’s kiss perfect for weapon manipulation. Loved the first one I bought after a few days on the range, ended up buying more for my other pistols.
    Wishes- offer different weight brass inserts. Drill a hole for Taran Tac mag extensions. Then, add a 6th star for reviews.
