Magazine base pad for STI 2011 factory magazine, Gen1 and Gen2. Fits 140/170mm length magazine tubes for 9mm/40. On a 140mm length tube, this will lock in ONLY on the full sized grips, and provides positive over insertion stop for slide lock reloads. Not for 120/126mm magazines in any grip module, as they will not lock in place.
Machined from 6061 aluminum and anodized matte black. Includes classic 10-8 features: serrated front for easier stripping and more tactile handling, scallops on side for stripping stuck mag, and dimples on the bottom for marking your magazine.
Fits Gen2 Tactical Advantage factory mag well or bare Gen1/2 grip module without mag well (see photo gallery).
DOES NOT FIT:
- 2019 Slim Tactical Mag well and any other legacy mag wells produced under STI brand name prior to 01/2020
- Any other brand magazine wells, since each have unique internal profiles that make it impossible to achieve positive over insertion stop on all of them.
- Any other brand magazines or tubes other than STI/Staccato factory, as they may not have the same dimensions and therefore cannot be guaranteed to lock in or provide over insertion stop.
**The star will sit below flush due to our plate being thicker. The pad's hole location is set to minimum spec to eliminate any fore/aft play of the pad on the tube, but it can make for a very tight fit for the factory retainer (the star). Here the solutions to try if the star isn’t popping up into the base pad:
1) Hold the mag tube and rap the serrated front of the base pad on a wooden block, inertia usually is enough to seat the star retainer.
2) Use a larger diameter punch to push the star down and tilt it in order to have it pop up.
ReviewsJeff JohnsonThe 10-8 140mm magazine base pads fit and function just as advertised. No worries about over insertion or bending of the ejector. Highly recommend these base pads.great job on all your products Hilton....5 stars.Pat
10-8 2011 140mm base padIt's a base pad. Has dimples for marking which is fine. The best part is that it holds the spring and follower in the gun. A+Eric Tycksen
2011 140mm BasepadI've had every generation of Staccato base pad, including the latest Dawson Precision pads, and these are definitely my favorite. The large divots on the sides give a good purchase when running the gun and the aggressive serrations on the front of the mag give tremendous grip so you can easily rip out a mag to clear a malfunction. These basepads have way more traction than all the other basepads I tried and I carry these for CCW, gaming, and on my warbelt for when I want to larp around in multicam. I only wish there was the option to buy mags with these already installed. Regarding fitting, the size and profile of the base pad works with the Dawson Precision Tactical Advantage magwells, so they are an easy swap. You can use them with the STI slim tactical magwell, but you'll need to take a a half-round file to the magwell first to open up the magwell in the front corners and then slightly widen the magwell opening down the sides. The process isn't that hard and you'll have a magwell that will work with any basepad when you are done. I haven't tried these basepads with the TTI magwells yet, but I assume that would be just as easy to fit. The star button Staccato/DP retaining plate is a little hard to fully seat and I found it easiest to just fully load the mag and give it a hard tap to fully seat the rounds and the base plate. It is good to go after that. The round button retaining plates on the TriArc mags fit and lock in perfectly and I personally wish Hilton offered those retaining plates for sale here as I can't find them for sale by themselves anywhere. I think the star on the Staccato retaining plates have the potential to get crud stuck in them and even though they look cool, function and performance comes first.Joe Coots
2011 140mm Base PadOutstanding product, flawless machining and finish. Really like the deep thumb divots on the side but especially the front serrations that definitely add to functional grip if you need it. Size is perfect for 20 rnd mag to seat flush with grip on full size 2011. More importantly, you will not find a more professional and passionate craftsman than Hilton. The kind of people you want to do business with and recommend highly.Jared Osborne
2011 base padI have not gotten them yet. Usps sucks, I understand it is not 10-8 fault. I have other 10-8 base pads and I love them, I'm sure I will like these as well.An Sims
Staccato base platesThis is the second order of these. Easy install and great product.Alan Sims
Staccato Base platesGreat product, easy install. I will be buying more. Great Tactical look as wellTyler
ExceptionalThese basepads are substantially better than the plastic basepads that come on 2011 mags, and a very reasonable price point. I didn't read the note about them only fitting the new magwell geometry, but with pretty minimal hand filing of my magwell (on a DVC Omni) they now fit and function flawlessly.
