sr9c magazine pinky extension

How many of you sr9c owners like the pinky extension and how many like the flat magazine? I kept the pinky extension on mine and like the feel of it but just changed mine last night to the flat. I'm going to try it for a while and see if I like it any better, I was thinking it might conceal a little better.

Ruger Redhawk will become famous soon enough
Whatever feels best to you. All mine mags are the flat plate. I think I might get the extension for my G27. I would say for CCW use it might be best to use the flat plate. It's not quite as bulky and won't show as much..

I prefer the flat base, it conceals a lot better for me. I just recently mode some small modifications to the pinky extention; I cut it down just enough to remove the lip. I haven't tried it out yet at the range but honestly I think i will still prefer the flat base.

I prefer the flat plate for concealed carry. I currently use my SR9 for IDPA matches but I may try and use the SR9c and I think the pinky extension may be more beneficial when drawing from a holster.

I like the extensions and put them on all my 10 round magazines.

I have big hands and like the extension. I open carry so it isn't a problem.

I think I like the extension more but switch them out depending on the garment covering it. Lighter clothes call for the flat mag.

I like both! Thought I would strongly prefer the finger extension but shooting with the flat floor plate is surprisingly comfortable and controllable. Love my 9c!

The pinky extension feels great in the hand but doesn't carry well. For me the comfort doesn't outweigh the carryability.

crracer 712 is an unknown quantity at this point
I like the feel of the extension in hand, but out of the 5 magazines, only two have the extension.

I don't have a CCW yet so I just carry it around the house. Most of the time it's sitting next to me on the desk.

My favorite is the Pinky Extension because it fits my hand better and I think it looks better too.

If I get a CCW I will probably go to the flat bottom for compactness.

Do you have a picture of this modification?

I like the extension. With a flat base the grip is just too short for my hand.

Don't really care if it makes a funny wrinkle in my shirt, I don't think most of the world pays much attention to whether you "print" or not.

I find that I am more accurate with the extension, but it conceals better with the flat plate. It's a personal decision.
