    Questions About 6 & 7rnd Magazines

    Having just purchased a Springfield Micro-Compact G.I., I have a some mag questions.

    1. I'm curious as to whether or not anyone makes a 6rnd mag with a bumper pad or pinky extension.

    2. For those of you who may have a micro-compact, have you tried a 7rnd mag and if so, does it extend very far from the bottom of the weapon?

    3. For a 7rnd mag used in a micro-compact, does it look stupid?

    4. Any suggestions on what brand of 6 or 7 rnd mags to use?

    I would like to order a few mags for this weapon, so I would appreciate some help so I can do this right the first time.

    Regards,

    1. I dont know that anyone makes one ready to go, but I do know you can buy bumper pads and add them on yourself.

    2. Yes, you can use larger mags. The 7rd mag extends a half inch or so beyond the grip.

    3. Yes, it kind of does, but who cares. Did you buy your gun to look cool or to do a job? Besides, I carry mine with the 6 in it, and a 7 or even 8 rd as a spare. If those make it into the gun, I no longer worry about looking good.

    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.
