Magazine base plates

I just noticed some Shields have a flat base plate on the 7 round mag, no pinky rest. Mine came with a pinky rest extension that makes it hard to fit in a pocket.

Is that how the magazines come now? Or can I buy just the base plate?

My NIB Shield 9 came with a 7rnd flat base pate and an extended 8rnd base plate that adds real estate for my pinky. They should come with both mags. A Pierce grip extension would be a nice addition but I haven't added one myself.

Nope, I bought it new, in September of 2015. I never looked closely until now, but the pinky rest has the Pearce logo on the bottom! Very odd, but oh well.

Yeah, i think somebody might have added the PEARCE to a display model in the gun-store that you bought it at to show people an option. I`ve seen many times where people at the LGS`s here, that they wish they could get a better hold of the grip... then my LGS shows them the PEARCE pinky add-on`s. I think this might be the same case that you`re seeing. I bought a PEARCE pinky base for mine because i wanted consistency between all my mags. Granted, i dont carry my 7-round, its just for range purposes only. But i still wanted a full purchase on the grip hold. If i were you, i would just leave it the way it is.

I finally located the box my Shield came in, and there was the flat base plate. Thanks for the tipoff that the LGS had swapped it. Looks like I got more than I paid for (a Shield plus a Pearce extension)!
