  • 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

Updated 08/06/2019: **The M&P 9 base pads are pending production after a short hiatus. We expect them back in about 8 weeks. Sorry for the inconvenience.

 

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 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 and M&P 2.0 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

 

**NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THE 10-8 MAGAZINE WELL. YOU NEED TO USE OUR XTC BASE PADS with the magazine well.

 

DOES NOT FIT:

  • M&P 2.0 Compact - Front corners of pad will protrude 
  • 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. Best aftermarket base plates on the market!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Oct 2013

    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.


  2. Well thought out 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Sep 2013

    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.


  3. Big upgrade over factory! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Sep 2013

    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!!


  4. Doesn't really look like it belongs 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Sep 2013

    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


  5. Get IT! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Aug 2013

    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!


  6. M&P FDE Base Pads 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Jul 2013

    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.


  7. M&P 45 base pad 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jun 2013

    great product. great quality. much easier to draw magazine from a dual magazine pouch.


  8. Great finishing touch for your magazines 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Jun 2013

    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.


  9. 10-8 M&P base pads rock! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th May 2013

    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


  10. Must Have 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th May 2013

    Great product, a must have if you shoot inside or on hard surfaces.
