Brian Enos's Forums... Maku mozo!

Recommended Posts

Just build a IDPA CO Hipower and am looking for a base pad, not extension, that would fit these mags? We did a weld on cylinder and slide magwell so I do have a little room for one to fit now. Anyone know if a Beretta M9 or other common mag shares the same or close dimensions?

IIRC the glue on rubber pads were the same for the Hipower and M9,,, I have quite a few of them. Another option would be the KRD south african magazines if they are still around.

Thanks for the info!

let me check my junk box, I may have some Mecgar 10 rounders that I changed to south african followers so they would hold and reload with 10 rounds.
Believe it or not back in the 90's the factory mags just BARELY held 10 and wouldnt reload with 10 and slide forward. Caused a bit of rukus for me in my first couple IDPA matches when I listened to a couple blowhards that insisted I had to load mags to 10 rounds and they would fall out at first shot.

At that point I threw a copy of the owners manual in my range bag which listed capacity as 10,,, and had a little asterisk. Bottom of page said, "Including 1 in chamber" so read it and weep. When I got a couple of KRD mags and switched followers so I had all 10 round reloadables.

Eventually I figured out you where just about always better off with 9 + 1 any ways and had moved to a 1911 9mm. never could get real happy with the HP trigger long reset.
