**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. Available to fit full sized frame M&P models (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).**

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!!

It's very well made and the color match is great, it just doesn't look like it was made to fit the m&p. The pads ar not long enough

I wasn't sure if I wanted these at first but man was I proven wrong. It gives your gun that extra detail plus functionality that will surprise you and FDE looks really nice on my M&P VTAC. BUY IT!

I recently received several of the newly released 10-8 base pads for my M&P magazines in FDE. These are extremely well thought out and well executed. The color is a close match to my VTAC M&P frame. I rate these very highly and would consider them as must have upgrades to the M&P line.

While these are costly items they add a finish and ruggedness the factory plates just don't offer. Will buy more to finish all my mags.

These pads are very nice. I wish they still
Had the silver ones. I use the silver for 9mm and black for 40acp.
Mags drop fast and are bullet proof
