Range Officer Mags???

Just picked up my first 1911. It's a 'new to me' Range Officer.

The previous owner installed an after-market main spring housing with a built in mag well. The mag's now sit so 'deeply' in the well, it's a bit difficult to seat and then remove them.

Can anyone recommend a good type of, and source for, a magazine 'base plate extender' to make dealing with the mags a little easier??

Thanks!

Bob

Try Midway USA they have a large selection of base pads. I have these pads on my mags and they help to seat my mags without effort.

Did you have to tap the holes? They are good pads and I have used them on a bunch of my mags but had to tap the holes on some of them.

No tapping required.

No tapping required, just screwed them into the mags two holes, pads tightened right down, self tapping I suppose. I got pads for 15 mags and all worked as advertised, easier to insert and dropped mags hit the ground pad first.

I’ve use the same pads and they work just fine.

For new mags I’ve had super results with Wilson Combat ETM mags. Anything that I wear out on those ETM can be easily replaced.

You can get magazine base pads and screws cheaper at CDNN. They work just as well as the name brand ones.
