    Is there an extended mag available for the M&P 40? Just got the gun yesterday, and I think I'm really gonna like it, but have not shot it yet. My question is there an extended mag available? It might make the grip a little better for me extended a bit.

    Arredondo and Taylor Freelance make extended base pads for them.

    grassman Do you have the 40 compact?? Add an Xgrip to a full size mag.
    Wifes CC group and the M&P with a Xgrip on full sized mag makes a great backup mag.

    You'll need to add some electrical tape to the magazine, otherwise the Xgrip is too loose and slides around if not in the pistol. Midway's reviews all pointed this out, I tried one and sure enough its true, still it does work well if you can dedicated some full sized mags to the compact pistol.

    Really? Where do you tape it?

    Just above the basepad of the 15/17 round magazine. About 1-1/2 turns of black electrical tape snugged mine up nicely.

    But the Xgrips would be a lot better if they had a bit smaller ID for a snug fit so the full sized mags could be quickly returned to service in full sized guns.
