Good question opr1945.I want one for the six rd. magazine the only one I found is one made out of aluminum on amazon for 27.00 plus 4.00 dollars shipping. Looks great but I have not let myself spend $31.00 for a finger rest.

I put bump pads for a 1911 on the solo mags. I used the kit from kimber , I ground the metal part with the tapped holes so it fit the solo then you have your choice of 3 sized bump pads. I used the middle pads for 2 of mine. If i could ever figure out how to post pictures I'll do so. It's pretty easy and cheap if you already purchased some of kimbers 1911 tac mags.

I did something very similar when I had my solo. I used the baseplate and bump pad from a Kimber 45 KimPro tac mag. I had to file the edges of the metal base plate a little bit so that they would slide into the solo magazine but it was just enough to give me a little picky grip and not too big where it interfered with my draw or my pocket carry.

Those are the same ones that I bought for my Solo Tom and they worked out great...They also sell the replacement mag spring for the Solo also.

There is also a KT member that makes these also if you want to throw some $$$ his way..
