    How many CZ 75 Compact owners here are using the extended rubber/plastic base pad on their magazines? Just curious.

    I ask because the extended base pads feel better than the stock, BUT once you put them on, your "compact" pistol isn't so compact anymore. :) I ordered rubber grips for my compact today from CZ USA, but they didn't have the base plates in stock, so I held off.

    I'm going to see how the gun feels with just the new grips. Then I'm going to "rob" the extended base plates off the aftermarket mags for my CZ 40P and see how the whole package feels before I order the pair for my compact. If I can get the gun to feel something like my 40P, I'll be a happy camper.

    Was wondering how standard the upgrade to these base pads is among compact owners.

    I haven't any big base pads on my compact mags. Wouldn't mind giving them a shot, though. Let us know how they work for you.

    Will do. I'm pretty sure the 40P pads will work on the 9mm compact mags, so I'll try them out before buying a new pair. I'm told that the 40P is technically a compact pistol, though it wouldn't come across as such to some shooters. I'll wait till my rubber grips come in before I change them out, and I'll let you know.
