Magazine Extensions


If you have a S&W M&P 9c (Compact), you know it comes with two 12 round standard capacity magazines -
one with a finger rest base plate and one with a flat base.



Smith & Wesson will send you a FREE replacement Finger Rest magazine base plate if you call them and ask nicely.

Sorry, this does not include the 10 round California low capacity magazines.






Many think a full-sized M&P 17 round standard capacity makes a fine extra carry magazine. It fits in the 9c.

You better be carrying an extra magazine!

I think that according to Clint Smith, if you're not carrying one, you're carrying negative one.



Here's something that just slips over a standard capacity M&P 17 round magazine that makes it much more comfortable to shoot in a 9c. It's called an X-grip.


They're about $15 plus s/h, see x-grips.com

and they make them for other guns, too.

Therefore, according to Math, zero is negative one.
