    M&P40c Extended Mag Sleeve

    I'm not sure if this the right place for this thread, so move it if not.

    I carry a full size M&P .40 mag as spare with my M&P40c. There does not apear to be an adapter sleeve available like the ones for the Glock mags.
    So I made up a few from some scrap Kydex.
    I will post some pics when I get home this morning.
    Any way, I would like some feed back and that will be tough to do from Pics.
    If anyone (1 or 2 people) would like to try them out and critique them PM me and I'll send out a couple (no charge).
    Thanx

    Here are the pics
    The sleeves are all slightly different due to the fact that I am molding them by hand with no jigs. The quality of workmanship is progressively better.
    These are all made from scraps so there are some material faults but nothing functional.
    They slide on and friction holds them snug.

    Way to take the initiative. You just might be onto something. I sent you a PM.

    I have ben looking for those "spacers" I guess you could call them forever. I did find one for the .45 M&Pc but so far nothing for the .40. How much are you charging for them? I could use one. Thanks

    X-Grip M&P Mag adapters from Top Gun Supply. They work great.

    What zonker said.

    I'm not making the sleeves anymore. The X-Grips are functionally identical and better looking than mine.

    just shows someone actually uses the search function which is a refreshing touch in my mind.

    I bought 5 extensions which make it a 20 rounder (Using VERY strong fingers). Taylor Freelance specializes in them. They were $175 for the 5 including new springs which they say are optional but not really. I found the info from Shooting USA when they were building an inexpensive limited gun using a M&P Pro .40, the mag extensions, and a large magwell. The extensions have worked well in competition but only with the new springs.

    You paid WAY too much for those...I have extensions that reliably make them 20rd for .40 and they cost about 1/3 of that for 5.

    My Ruger Sr40c I practice and use the Extended magazine without the BASE extender. I get about the same grip on it as i do on the 9 round magazine (Have Pinky extension on that one).
