S&W M&P Base Pad

  • Image 1
  • The long front toe of the factory base pad kicks the magazine tube away from your hand, making it more difficult to get the correct index of the magazine tube in your hand.
  • The rebated front of the 10-8 base pad allows you get achieve the correct index of the magazine in your hand.
  • The long front toe of the factory base pad is also a snag hazard during speed reloads.  It is common to draw the front magazine and snag the rear one, leaving one in your gun and one on the ground.
  • The scoop at the front allows you reach in and access the magazine for malfunction clearances.
  • The front scoop makes for easy stripping of stuck magazines.
  • The side scoops allow for improved purchase while stripping stuck magazines or performing tactical reloads.
  • The side scoops allow for improved purchase while stripping stuck magazines or performing tactical reloads.
  • If your magazine looks like this restricted capacity mag (photo courtesy S&W), our pads will not fit.  Please note that the bottom of this tube is replaced by a block, with a "pad" molded in.  We do not make anything compatible with these magazines.
  • This base pad will fit on the magazine for the 9c and 40c, but the pad is not intended for the Compact.  You can see here that the pad is too long and will protrude at the front.  The base pads will not allow the mag to lock in place on a .45.  Sorry!

Product Description

Fits full sized frame M&P models ONLY (fits all generations of full sized mags).

  • CNC machined from tough 6061 aluminum.  
  • Bottom of the pad features 8 dimples for marking magazines.
  • 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.

 

Here's the run down for the base pad and retainer compatibility, as it is a common area of confusion:

  • M&P 9/40/357, current production black magazine with square button plastic retainer: just order our pad
  • M&P 9/40/357, pre 2011 with old round hole retainer: use our current pad PLUS the square button retainer
  • M&P 9/40/357 VTAC with tan factory pad and round hole retainer: use our current pad PLUS the square button retainer
  • M&P 45: all generations use round hole retainer, order just our pad

 

 

DOES NOT FIT:

 

  • Aftermarket competition magazine wells.
  • M&P Compact.  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).
  • Factory 10 round restricted capacity magazines, which have the bottom portion of the tube replaced by a large block (see pic in the gallery).

  1. Thoughtfull and Effective Design, Great Execution

    Posted by Steve W on 11th Sep 2014

    These are great! I can strip the mags much easier, they're tough enough to take drops, and I like the different colors. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because the price is high (there should be poly models available as with the Glocks) and because 10-8 doesn't stock the needed base pad retainers needed to install them.


  2. fixes problems, doesn't cause more

    Posted by Gunnar Gray on 11th Aug 2014

    I usually carry several mags stacked as close as possible. Stock base plates get stuck on each other. I have a few alternate baseplates, many don't fit right, they wobble. These fit well and do not hang up on each other. I got 5 to start, I'm DEFINATELY getting more.


  3. Kickass

    Posted by Andy on 25th Jul 2014

    Little pricey but I will be outfitting all of my magazines with these basepads. For and finish is great, fast shipping. Top notch product


  4. Well worth it!

    Posted by mattkoyak on 23rd Jul 2014

    Really happy with this design improvement. I thought, however, I saw them in use with the Speed Shooter Specialities mag well...

    and they don't work. That's my only complaint, and I rarely run regular mags on my race gun anyway. I'll be ordering more for my full size .40!


  5. Rugged Baseplate

    Posted by Unknown on 16th Jul 2014

    I only had these for few days but I am really liking this baseplates. The shortened front lip helps me during reloading and keeps me from messing it up during competition. It also looks much tougher than the plastic factory plates that I have abused.


  6. Better than factory

    Posted by Unknown on 1st Jul 2014

    These M&P base pads are a big improvement over the factory versions. The price is a bit steep, Can't believe they should cost that much, but there are few quality choices.

    Gave 4 stars due to price and having to buy FDE because black hadn't been available for months.


  7. Tough as nails....

    Posted by Clint Achziger on 21st Apr 2014

    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..


  8. Well thought out upgrade

    Posted by Deginald Y. on 12th Apr 2014

    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.


  9. These rock!

    Posted by Damon Webb on 12th Apr 2014

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


  10. M&P base pads

    Posted by Jason Weekley on 11th Apr 2014
