I'm trying 3 different WC mags to see which will work best when I install a mag well. One is the standard plastic pad which sticks out a bit and is not pleasing to the eye....one is the lo-profile steel base pad (Yay. Go steel) and one is the Elite Tactical Magazine with a base pad that is shaped to fill the mag well AND it holds 8 rounds! with virtually the same length mag. I just shot all three. All performed as advertised. The lo-profile will end up flush with the mag well bottom, hiding the unsightly WC base pad. (Why can't they make machined steel base pads that really finish out the look of the grip bottom?) I'm leaning toward buying more of the lo-profile mags, but the elite tactical looks kinda sharp!
