Magazine base pad question

I thought about putting this in the accessories section, but this section probably has more guys browsing.
One magazine I got with my FS .40 had an FDE base pad. I thought I would try to get more of the FDE ones, as it looks good with my FDE frame.
I found some on E-Bay, not cheap at 4 for $30. ( I have since found them at SpeedShooterSpecialties for $3 each, but they are out of stock).
I received my FDE base pads yesterday, they have the S&W logo on them, but won't work as the plastic pad between the spring and base pad has a circular bump towards the middle to lock in the base pad, and all my magazines have a rectangular bump more towards the back.
I wasn't aware that there were two different styles, the guy ( Judd from Parker, Colorado) just says on the description that they are for M&P pistols.
Can I order the piece between the spring and base pad that has the circle retainer bump, or should I try to send these back ?
I feel bad enough about how expensive these were, and to top it off, they don't even work with my mags.

Thanks Ray. When I got an e-mail notification of your reply, it correctly shows the link you put for the SpeedShooterSpecialties round hole pad retainers.
But the reply above shows Bianchi Holsters ??? Not sure why the reply came out different above.
I'll order 4 of those round hole retainers as I have some other stuff I wanted to order from them,

Glad I could help! I think the Bianchi holsters you are seeing are the holsters I use and I've linked to in my Signature and it shows in all my posts..
