These base pads are injection molded from glass reinforced nylon, and they are super tough and resistant to impact. Our pads fit and install the same as the factory floor plates, use the factory retainer plate (magazine insert), and no extra parts are required.
The 10-8 pad is slightly thicker than the factory pad, and features angled sides and front to allow for easy stripping of stuck magazines. The pads also feature a grooved front and scalloped sides for positive grip during manipulations. The bottom of the pad features our usual dimples for marking your magazines.
Fits Glock factory magazines for the double column 9mm, .40 S&W, .357 Sig, .45 GAP and Glock 44 (.22 cal). NOT compatible with early production non metal lined (Gen1) Glock magazines, or the single column Glock 43, 43x/48 magazines. Fit all other generations to include Gen5. NOT COMPATIBLE with Glock 26/27 where the magazine base pad has to fit in a recess in the frame. **Magazines with our pads DO fit in the Gen 5, 17M/19M, and 19X. The Glock 19X frame has a lip at the front and our pads will just barely clear. Also fits KCI and ETS Glock magazines. DOES NOT fit Magpul Glock magazines.
Compatible with many magazine wells, including the Raven Concealment Systems Freya, Magpul, Zev Pro, Battle Arms Development, Killer Innovations, and Overwatch Precision. Is known to be INCOMPATIBLE with the Zev Universal Pro magwell. Please note that with certain mag wells (including Magpul and Zev Pro), individual frame/magazine combos may exhibit tolerance stacking and our base pad may interfere with the ability of the mag to lock into place when loaded.
Coyote and Olive Drab pads are limited production runs and may be priced differently. The colors were matched to new production Glock Gen4/5 frames, but Glock production runs vary in hue, so we can't guarantee an exact match to your particular frame. **We changed the name of our "Glock Dark Earth" pads as our color seems to match the Glock 19X Coyote better.**
Weight: .24 oz.
**SOLD AS A SET OF FOUR (4)**
**NOTE: We do not recommend excessive disassembly/reassembly of Glock magazines, as the retainer tabs molded on the bottom of the magazine tube are relatively soft and will ding up with each time the pad comes off or goes on the tube. This happens with both Glock factory pads as well as ours. We do not find that Glock magazines get a lot of dirt inside, so it is typically unnecessary to disassemble them for anything other than spring replacement.
Common questions answered:
- Will you be making this for the .45 ACP/10mm magazines?
- Not any time soon, due to limited demand.
- Are these easier to remove and install than the factory base pads?
- No, they remove and install exactly the same way. Keep in mind that "easy to remove" ends up meaning that the magazine will come apart when it hits the ground.
ReviewsDavidI ordered two sets of these and have been rocking them the last few weeks. I recommend them. So far, no issues. Definitely appear to be more rugged than the OEM plates and easier to strip for type 2 malfunctions. This is definitely not new information for anyone, but magazines are often the weak point in autoloading pistols. If you are doing combat reloads and dropping your mags onto hard surfaces (e.g., the floor) it is very easy for them to become unseated and if you are not paying attention you can throw them back in your mag pouch and carry on. Then next time you use that mag, the chance of failure is extremely high. If this happens in training, awesome, its a learning point. If this happens not in training, well, you get the picture. Obviously, paying attention to your gear is the #1 takeaway, but having something like that that lessens the chance of the initial failure is worth it in my mind.glen grulke

did not disappointI purchased these to use while attending the Police academy. We do a lot of mag change drill dropping magazines on the floor over and over again. Not only are these Robust to handle the abuse, they are just different enough to differentiate my mags from other cadets.Chris

Glock magazine base padExcellent product! Easy to replace old Glock base pads and provide positive grip to strip mag from magazine well.Troy Pearson
Great Glock Mag Base PlatesI bought these because they were little bit thicker than the stock plates and the right color I wanted. Are easy to install and look great with my fde slide. Very happy with the purchase. Can't beat for plates for that price.SHAWN
COMPATIBILITY ANSWEREDQuality product. Works just fine with my Magpul® GL Enhanced Magazine Well for GLOCK® 17 GEN 4 (using standard .40 caliber OEM magazine tubes). The dimples make it easy to mark and differentiate each magazine. The best part: Shipping was quicker than Miculek.
