Glock Magwell for Duty Use That Allows Stripping Mags

Hello,

Our department is reviewing pistol accessories and my LT wants any magwell we authorize to allow stripping of a standard factory glock mag. I read through a number of posts and couldn't find good data. 

From what I read here, it looks like the ALG offering isn't an option.

Anyone have experience with a Glock magwell that is sufficiently robust for duty use and allows stripping of a standard factory mag?

I was looking at the Freya from RCS and couldn't tell if it would allow this.

This Zev magwell seems to allow grabbing the baseplate...

Anyone have a recommendation before I buy a pile of magwells?

I have had one of the Prezine polymer magwells on my duty gun for 10 years. It has held up fine and I have no problem getting  my fingers on an OEM Glock mag baseplate if I grab it front to back.

$29.99 from Brownells

2 of my off duty guns (Glock 23 and 19) have Agency Magwells.  Had them for about a year. Again no issues, easy to grab for stripping and they have accepted every OEM and aftermarket mag, floorplate, and extension I could find - from the Vickers baseplates to the Glock +2 extensions to the Glock 17 to 19 mag spacers.

These are ~$100 each however.

I've got the Agency Magwell on two G23's and love them. Never an issue stripping a mag. Those Vickers baseplates would probably make it even more fool proof, but I've never used em. 

Food for thought, the Gen 5's have a cutout in the front strap and a modest magwell molded right into the grip.. but I've never shot one of those either.  

I think the biggest issue with that is that the baseplates themselves of the stock mags are not conducive to being stripped from even a gun without a magwell IMO. 

Vickers basepads are my favorite accessory to glock mags. I'm hoping to get a magwell approved to go with the Vickers I already put on my duty mags. Is getting Vickers plates put on all mags a possibility? Even without he magwell it would be beneficial.

Maybe I'm an anomaly, but in 15 years of shooting Glocks almost exclusively, I have never, ever had to strip a mag - let alone use abtremendous amount of force to do so (force requiring some kind of cut out to get a better grip on the stuck mag).

Yes, I know the possibility exists that it could be necessary and as such I won't sent my guns up to eliminate the ability to do so, but altering my setup specifically to accommodate this has definitely never crossed my mind.
