Shield 45 HYVE + 1/2 Mag Extension and Triggers

Anybody looking for Shield 45 Upgrades

HYVE Mag Base
Turns your 7 round mag into 8 round
Turns your 6 round mag into 8 round

Just my own opinion, adding one round with the factory mag spring is ok,
BUT, any more rounds than that, i would add a heavier spring regardless of any reviews.

The HYVE trigger is very nice, gets rid of that horrible S&W barn door hinge trigger.
Does eliminate some slop, but not all the slop. (my own opinion) Breaks ok. Reset feels more firm.
Plastic triggers absorb reset feel, aluminum allows you to actually feel the reset easier.

Interesting. I haven't even thought about "extras" for my incoming Shield yet.
I used the Hyve extension on my G27, and 9mm conversion for it.
Great product. In the 40 it was +1 and +2 in 9mm.
Ran flawless in over 500 combined rounds.
Definitely have to check out the new goodies.

I made a few extended base`s for mine because i was to cheap-assed to buy them...lol
But i do think the trigger is 1/2way decent... so i broke out the dusty old wallet of course...lol

I did find some youtube videos about people saying HYVE base`s sucked, but i chalk that up to the idiots that didn`t follow the instructions when they installed them. Most people are having good luck with them so far. Personally, i wouldn`t use the +2 base without adding a stronger mag spring... but thats just my own personal opinion.
