    I have used all three extensively and I would strongly disagree with this statement.

    1. Springer - As much as I like everything else they do, their basepads are no go because of the small screw used to secure the basepads. It is a royal pain in the rear to remove the basebads to clean the mags. You need a special tool to do that and it is very easy to strip them and/or lose them.

    2. With Hennings you lose 1 rds and get only 22ds in the mags vs 23 with TTI.

    3. TTI is the way to go. You get +6rd and you do not need any tool to remove it.

    Thanks for the input. Iíll get one of those to try out alongside the TTI ones.

    I know itís too late, but Iíll add this anyway...

    When I bought base pads for my S2, I got 5 different colors. That way if one fails, I can identify it instantly. Currently they all work, but ďblueď doesnít lock the slide back. Havenít figured out why yet, but at least I know not to start with that one or even use it as a first reload.

    Itís the same as trying to reload 23+1 and youíll have to jam in the reload much harder.

    Seat 22 or less in your reload (youíll generally only need 20 or less for a CO reload).

    That gives enough spring compliance in the magazine for easier seating.
    That was kinda why I mentioned. Idk about the Glock but on the sig loading a 23 on the fly is tough. I did add a grams spring kit so now I feel comfortable with 23+1 because it gives extra cushion.

    Also just food for thought but the latest gear survey TTI was pretty unanimous the most popular pick. Name:  07AFFA5C-F641-49D1-B3C5-32E01F40BD7B.jpg

    I have a bunch of Taran 140mm Glock extensions, and they are very reliable but I only get 22 until the springs get worn enough I want to replace them.
    Likes pretty much everything in every caliber.

    Yet to make it to a match because:reasons, but Iíve noticed the little pins on the TTI basepads seem to be working their way out in static live fire at the square range. No bueno. Argh.

    I ordered a Dawson to try out:

    Thanks again for the suggestion.

    This. A little over a week ago I was shooting a stage with an unloaded start and I tried to start with 22 in the mag (Walther mags are a tight fit with 22, so I should have been starting with 21). I slammed it into the gun (not hard enough), and as I was moving my hand up to rack the slide, I felt the gun go light and saw my full mag headed toward the ground and had to go for another one from my belt - probably cost me around 2 seconds between realizing the problem and rectifying it. Won't be making that mistake again...

    Tighten the Allen key on the basepad.
    My pins stay put.

    Thanks.

    Had to wait till today to take a look at these. I went a full half turn fairly easily on both; not sure why they were loose. I mean, I did not loc tite anything just snugged them down with a teeny hex until I felt they were secure. Should be good; headed to the square range tomorrow to shake them out.

    So this arrived...I like it. Appreciate the suggestion by @Gio. The Dawson pad is two pieces, literally, just the basepad and slider section. Install is easy, I filed the rear of the follower as suggested and was able to get 23 in (ok, barely, the Uplula helped a lot).

    I think of the two types I have now, I prefer the Dawsons; no pins to walk out, and simple design. I like the color of the silver, of course, which may be the real reason.
