I'm looking for a subcompact to conceal carry and narrowing it down to an lc9. I'd be interested in a pistol of that size that would accommodate extended magazines. (expanded capacity magazines)
Off the bat I only know of the Beretta px9 as accommodating expanded magazines, but to me it's too heavy for cc.
any other pistols out there that meet my requirements.

LC9 comes with a 7rd mag, 9rd mags can be had.
All Glock and M&P compacts and subcompacts can use full-sized and extended mags.

i meant expanded capacity magazine. I thought i could use a large capacity mag (15 rounds or so) as the backup mag.
There is a 32 round magazine for the Glock G26 9mm.
again the 40c will take a 15 rounder with an xgrip, but your concern is total weight.
I carry a gun because a policeman is to heavy.

My EDC is a Sig P250 9mm SC with a 15rd extended mag. Flush mag holds twelve. May be a bigger gun than what you are looking for though.
CZ RAMI accepts all CZ75 magazines except for the P-07 and P-09 magazines.

Ruger SR40C (Not as thin or as light as the M&P Shield) holds 9+1 spare magazine holds 15 rounds (Double Stack)
2011106132648-ruger_sr40c_1_m.jpg The piece on the extended magazine is a grip extender. Giving you a full size grip. (at night i swap out to the extended magazine and my EDC becomes my nightstand firearm)

As said, the Glock 26 is hard to beat. Takes 6 different capacity magazines (10/15/17/33/50/100) although the 50rd and 100rd arent really practical. Great carry gun with a 10rd mag, or even with the 15rd and a grip extension. Then if this gun needs to serve as a HD weapon, keep it on the nightstand with a 33rd mag loaded up. It doesnt really have much more grip length than something like an LC9 (wider, but Ive found the grip length is what makes a gun difficult to conceal), but holds more rounds with a flush mag than the LC9 does with a mag with a different baseplate to hold an extra round or two.
Lots of people complain its too thick, or the trigger/sights is bad, but if for some reason you havent gotten to a LGS to handle one, it would be worth your time.

Sub compact and single stack are not synonymous with high capacity.
no, but extended capacity magazines are.
SR9c comes with a 10 round carry and a 17 round spare (with extention)
The 1911 is an antiquated weapons system but then again, so am I.
