I have seen several reviews of the Freya, and spent a lot of time wondering if it would be a worthwhile addition to my EDC G19 Gen 4. Let's be honest, this is a fairly expensive item that most people see little to no value in. Having installed it on the pistol, I am a believer in it. It has a small footprint, and does not affect the ability to conceal the pistol. It certainly helps to get a magazine into the pistol during fast combat reloads but the greatest advange to the Freya for me is how much the grip is improved. It helps get the hand higher on the pistol. This thing is very well build and fits perfectly. You really get what you pay for when it comes to machines parts like this. I am very pleased with the Freya, and will buy more for my other pistols.
Developed for duty, tactical, and concealed carry use, the Freya mag well brings the benefits of larger, heavier versions to the user who carries their gun full-time. It is sized to fit full-size Glock 17, 22, 34, 35 and 19, 23, 32 Gen 3 family of guns and Glock 19, 23, 32 Gen 4 family of guns.
The Freya is easily and non-permanently mounted by the user with no permanent modification to your pistol. In addition to the flat factory GLOCK baseplates, the design is compatible with factory GLOCK +2 baseplates and copies, Arredondo +2 and +5 extensions, Magpul Speedplates, as well as Dawson Precision’s excellent extended tool-less magazine extensions and Ez-Off baseplates. The Gen 4 Freya will not work with any backstraps installed on the grip.
Others may fit as well.

Fit and finish was great. The only issue I had was the piece the set screw tightens in to didn't have clean threads and crossthreaded on install. So I won't be able to remove the magwell without the piece being completely ruined. Other than that the magwell is phenomenal and I'm very happy with it. Editor's Note: Sorry you had a problem with the installation. The Freya is covered under our lifetime warranty. If you have a problem in the future, please let us know.
Installation was a snap. Mags fall free. For me, improves my grip on the gun but helping to "push" the web of my hand up into the tang. Another selling point, for me, was now I can reload without getting my hand caught between the mag baseplate and the bottom of the grip. A solid product from a solid company.
The Freya is solidly built and accomplishes it's intended purpose. The flared magwell allows for faster speed reloads and also helps the shooter maintain a consistent high tang grip on the Glock. The Freya was easy to install and stays firmly locked in place with a two screw system. The only reason I dinged it a star is because it's not compatible with Vickers and TTI basepads which kind of sucks as they're 2 of the more functional basepads on the market. But in Raven's defense they do clearly state which basepads the Freya is compatible with in the product's description. Overall the quality and engineering is what I've come to expect from Raven Concealment Systems, and would recommend the Freya to anyone looking for an edc/carry magwell for their Glock.
The product itself is exactly what I have come to expect from RCS. Aesthetically pleasing, practical, functional and priced correctly. Shipping quality control missed the fact that none of the hardware to secure my magwell was in the package prior to shipping. I immediately upon opening product sent an email to RCS addressing the issue. Within 24 hours I had received a communication with an apology and an order number for the missing parts. Given the holiday season I understand what happened and am very pleased with their reaction. I would recommend the Freya magwell to anyone for cc or competition. I will be ordering drone RCS more in the future and push my fellow 3gunners to purchase from them.
