Sig P290 Mag Baseplate in Micro 9

This is an 8+1 Sig P290 Magazine modified to fit my Micro 9 (7+1 Kimber Mag also shown for reference).

My question is about esthetics.
What further changes do you guys suggest I make in the appearance of the modified Sig baseplate?
Or, does it look OK as is?

I did the same thing that you did with my P238. I think it looks okay. Then again, I look at defensive pistols as "tools," not target weapons.

If the base pad helps your grip and your aim, and your clothing does not make a "print," I'd leave the pistol as is and spend the rest on practice ammunition.

I don't trust the 8+1 Sig mag enough to carry yet - I'm still carrying the Kimber 7+1 extended mag (I do trust it).
I'm thinking about further modifying the bottom rear of the P290 baseplate to more closely resemble the Kimber baseplate (both styles are comfortable in the hand).

I'm a project, myself. Snow and ice have limited our mobility.

Go for it, you know what you like, and you have the day to accomplish it. Just show us the pictures!

For which mag? Sig and Kimber baseplates attach differently, and the bottom of rhe mag itself is not identical.

Does the Hogue Base Pad give you an extra round?
That would take the 8-round Sig P290 mag up to 9+1.
