base plates for P224s Login/Join

m sorry if this has been answered but I couldnt find it. I just bought a new P224 to be my "bug" for my MK25 and was wondering if there are different base plates that have a pinky extension for the 224. I have the sleeve for my full size mags but a pinky extension like on some other small weapons would be nice. I thank you for all of your sage advise in advance.

I am admittedly not an expert on the 224, but I have never seen an extended baseplate for them. That said this is a pretty good write up on how to make a 229 extension work on the short mags.



Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

I don't think you will find mag extensions for the P224 from aftermarket vendors. SIG does make an extended mag for the pistol in all three calibers. In 9mm, it increases the count by 3 rounds to 15. It also then exactly matches the grip length of the P229. I'd suggest working with it a bit more at the range. Might turn out that you don't need that third finger on the grip

Thank you, I have 6- MK mags and 4 sleaves, I was looking for a pinkie extension for the P224 mags and low and behold I found a guy that makes them and sells them on e-bay with a 100% rating so Im giving it a shot and bought 4, I will report on how they work. I really wanted the 224 9mm to match my MK-25 for a bag with a Scorpion evo pistol especially during hurricane season.

There was a post on this a year or so ago on here-using a mag base maybe from Pierce I think and making a small change to it to add a place for the pinkey. I thought I saved it but am still looking for it. Anyone else remember this?

Google P224 pinky extension and the post that was here is on Sig Talk. Images were on photobucket so they aren't there any more but they used a Pearce grip for a XD pistol

Thank you for all the information, I found it in a round about way. I thought it would have been more common I guess.

I bought this one to try from source as indicated above. Working ok so far, not exact fit as I had to file a little bit of the outside edge/corner off for comfort. But better than previous attempts. I guess my wish for a factory made aluminum base adapter with a bit more extension is not going to happen. Holster is Ryan Grizzle's excellent work.

Gunnitt, would you mind posting the link to the eBay listing? I have two P224s and would be interested in trying them out as well. Thanks.

There's a guy here on the forum that make mag extensions with a 3D printer. He got a website up recently... can't think of his name. That was s bunch of useless information Big Grin

I used a Pearce PG-XD magazine extension and a mag insert for a 229 to lock in the mag insert to the extension.
Had to whittle down the extension to fit but it works great.

Got my eBay order today.

Installation was easy. A small thin wood tongue depressor was provided to release the mag spring from the factory base plate. Fit is very snug, which is probably better than the factory plate and spring snaps right into the retention slot, just like factory.

Fit into the gun is very good and snug. My pinky now has good support for my hand size, which I would describe as avg/med.

Obviously need to try at the range but based on the comparison to the factory plate where they fit the bottom of the mag next to the spring I don't anticipate any problems.

BTW I was a bit concerned that the slightly longer grip could be a problem for my Sneaky Pete holster designed for the 224. However it fits just fine with no binding that would interfere with easy draw.

I give it a "keeper" status.


Cheers Ya'll
