Solo custom magazine extension

I want to post this info to all Solo owners to see if anyone is looking to buy a American made CNC machined pinky extension for a Kimber Solo. I machine these from 6061 Aluminum with a santin black powder coated surface. What I machine is the main mag base adding 2 tapped holes and the pinky extensions. I can find anything online that looks factory from Kimber. These pinky extension change how the small frame shoots.
Very stable...my wife and fellow shooters love how it feels in there hands compared to a 2 finger grip. if you are interested in more info please let me know. Give me your thoughts and comments.image.jpg

Those do look very nice...A couple of years ago I bought a couple from a company and they made all of the difference holding my Solo...

Thanks for the feedback

I think it will help Solo owners with accuracy and recoil. These little pistols with high grain ammo like to jump in your hands.

With all due respect HURCO1, are you aware that Kimber has 8 round Mags with pinky grip for about $25.00? Also pinky mag extensions already are available? You are obviously a talented fabricator and I'm sure yours are of the highest quality but I think you just picked the wrong project. There are a few die hard Solo fans that may order some. I hope you sell 1 million of them.

I think the mag from HURCO1 looks like it fits better than the 8 round mag from Kimber

What kind of price will you be asking for these ? The one's that I bought a couple of years ago were $27 which I thought was crazy, but they did serve their purpose...


{Anyway of combining these threads would be appreciated. It's like a tennis match here.}
