Another concept that’s far from unique in the industry but ours combine a twist never before seen on extended bases. Our +3 bases alone increase a standard 1911 LBP magazine from 10 rounds to 13, combined with our +3 follower and you have 16 rounds per magazine even with a standard magazine spring. With older springs we have even managed to fit 17 in easily enough.
Made from a 3D printed Nylon material designed with extra stiffness, Ideal for metal replacement. It can withstand oils, electricity, high and low temperatures, and pressure, this is not a cheap PLA as used by others or hobbyists.
On the bottom of the base you’ll notice 2 threaded inserts, this is designed so our extended base can accommodate our unique BUMPZ™ system to add further protection for your magazines when dropped. Another first in the industry by 3GN UK.
*If your slide doesn’t hold open on the last round, then it’s probably your catch wearing not the magazine spring. On a new pistol the last round hold-open still works with these bases and standard factory magazine spring.
**Our +3 bases are NOT designed to be dropped from height without our BUMPZ™ attached. Doing so can result in failures and damage to the +3 base. They are also only designed for standard competition surfaces such as gravel, soil and grassed areas, and NOT directly on to solid concrete.
