**The round hole retainer pads for 9/40/357 M&Ps have been discontinued. The square hole retainer pad will fit all current production standard capacity black magazines in the 9/40/357 M&P full size. If you have an older magazine or a tan base (VTAC) with the round hole, we have the square button retainers for sale.
The M&P factory base pad was one of the areas where we felt some improvements could be made. Due to their plastic construction, some users have experienced pad cracking and breakage. Our magazine base pads are CNC machined from tough 6061 aluminum for maximum durability. The bottom of the pad features 8 dimples for marking your magazines.
Fits full sized frame M&P models ONLY (fits all generations of full sized mags).
Black or Flat Dark Earth anodized finish.
Weight is .5 ounces (factory is .2 ounces). Pads are legal in all divisions of IDPA and USPSA.
These pads are the same thickness as the factory pads, and are therefore not compatible with aftermarket competition magazine wells.
Pads will fit on M&P 9/40 Compact models, but pad is too large for the footprint of the shortened frame (see photo gallery).
Here's the run down for the base pad and retainer compatibility, as it is a common area of confusion:
**Does not work with M&P Compact or MA compliant and other variations of 10 round or restricted capacity magazines, which have the bottom portion of the tube replaced by a large block (see pic in the gallery).**

Great products, base pads are well designed and constructed.
They are easy to grasp during the reloads drills and absence of that long tang on the factory mags, allows a better grip.
Great product Hilton.. Highly recommended..

An upvote for what everybody else has already said. I like the chopped down profile/nose of this design, and that it adds a feeling of sturdiness. 10-8 customer service is top notch as well.

Best floorplate upgrade you can put on your M&P magas - all of mine wear these.

Extreme real world utility.

The base plates are nice looking, well crafted and perform as expected. The easy installation really helped also. I am ordering more for other mags.

I replaced the factory base pads with these and swap was simple. The factory pads had more room in the slot, where the 10-8 pads were a little tighter. Ran all the mags through several courses of fire with no issues whatsoever. A definite improvement, as the finger notches will allow a good grip to pull a stuck mag.
I've been impressed with the fit and finish of all the 10-8 products since my first 1911 sight install. Customers receive an excellent product designed for hard use.

Without a doubt one of the best aftermarket products you can add to your M&P. Solid connection to the mag tube and won't crack or break like the factory plastic ones.

It works! Solid place to grab/rip magazine from pistol, even if something prevents the magazine from falling freely. Wide base and dots on the bottom allow for low-key numbering of magazines for inventory control and problem identification. Nice work.

Bought 4 of these to replace my plastic base pads for my M&P. Quality is top notch and a major upgrade from what it came with from the factory I was pleasantly suprised how nice they are!!
