My Concerns About Using A Grip Extension
Will the grip extension be long enough to cover all my
Mostly, depending on your hand size. It will likely give you
that third finger on the grip of the gun.
Will the space between the gun grip and the magazine grip
extension pinch my fingers when I fire my gun?
Not a problem. The gap is so small you don't even feel it.
Will it make my Ruger LCP too large for concealed carry?
No. The extra length is minimal and will not affect the fit or
comfort of carrying the gun in you pocket.
Will it give me a better grip and more control over the
Yes. The extra grip length that the extension provides along
with the curved surface at the bottom of the magazine allow you
greater control when you fire your gun.
After installing them on two of my three magazines I
went to the range to see if they actually make a difference when
shooting the gun. I used two magazines (one with and one without) and
shot each with my Ruger LCP. I shot single handed, double handed, while
point shooting and while using the gun sights. I was very pleased to
find that these little grip extensions made all the difference in the
world. The gun was easier to control and to hold onto when shooting both
single and double handed. It took away any fears that I had of the gun
jumping out of my hand.
ARE THEY WORTH IT?
The extra length and the way they flare out at the bottom of the
magazine gives you more control over muzzle flip from recoil. One handed
shooting is easier and you don't have to worry about the gun flying out
of your hands. BUY THEM!
They come two in a package and are
dirt cheap for the value they give you.
WHERE CAN YOU BUY THEM?

Pertinent Reviewer Information
"Before I could only get my middle finger on the grip(this is
while having the ruger extension on) and now I can get both ring and
middle finger, and the grip, at least on my hand" stops just after
my ring finger so my pinky rests snug underneath, It makes it feel
like the grip was customized for my hand. Great Product, and its a
"They are a little bigger than the ones that came on my Ruger
factory mags. This little bit makes it much easier to get at least
two full fingers on the grip, which in turn leads to better control
of the gun.... Some people worry about them making the gun harder to
conceal, but the amount added to the size of the weapon is
"I am now able to get a full grip on the weapon"
"Factory Ruger extension will pinch bottom finger when firing.
This does not pinch at all."
"They don't increase the number of rounds in the magazines, but
they make holding the pistol a whole lot easier!"
"I have big hands and this was uncomfortable for me. The length
certainly is greater, but my finger doesn't fit in the extension's
groove, and the bottom isn't cut so that I can fit my finger below
it (as does the Ruger factory extension). I gave it to a friend of
mine though that has smaller hands and he absolutely loves it. It's
really all about how big your hands are."
"Gun does not jump nearly as much now, and it really didn't add
too much extra bulk to my pocket."
