Grip Force Extended Base Pad

Conventional extended base pads primarily have a square or rectangular shape. Their designs mostly consist of flat or slightly angled surface areas on all sides and a flat section on the bottom. These designs are not ergonomic. They do not provide proper surface contact and feedback to the shooter during the reload sequence.

The advanced ergonomic design of the Grip Force EBP resolves all of these issues of conventional extended base pads.

The Grip Force EBP is the result of ergonomic evolution. When developing the Grip Force EBP, we studied the exact manner in how the human hand operates during a reload sequence. How the hand indexes the base pad and magazine in its pouch. How it wraps around the base pad and magazine body when removing the magazine. How it orients the magazine toward the magazine well, and how the hand functions when inserting, seating, and locking the magazine into the pistol.

The Grip Force EBP is designed to work with the hand naturally. The result is optimized speed and efficiency of the reload sequence.


The EBP design allows for a faster and more consistent index.

The EBP fits the hand better, increasing feel and control.

The extended and contoured underside remains in contact with the hand during reloads. That continuous hand contact increases speed and efficiency.

The Grip Force EBP can be used on Standard (G17/G22) or Compact (G19/G23) sized magazines. The Grip Force EBP increases magazine capacity by +5 rounds of 9mm and +4 rounds of .40 cal.

Additional features include:

• Ambidextrous indented side panels enhance the operation for immediate action drills.

• A reinforced 3-pin locking bridge offers additional security against the base pad separating from the magazine body.

• The ergonomic shape of the EBP aids in concealed carry; the base pad design prints less underneath clothing.

• The ergonomic shape of the EBP offers an enhanced grip surface for compact (G19-sized) pistols.

• The EBP has a non-glare finish, suitable for MIL/LE duty use.

    Link appears to have a typo. There should be an ‘R’ in there.

    I don’t see these catching on. The promo photo tells me all I need to know about their expertise…

    • Casey says:

      What’s wrong with the promo photos? I think this is from the same company which produced the Grip Force Adapter, which is certainly a well-regarded product.

        I am wondering if he is talking about the 1st pic where it sort of looks like his finger is on the trigger as he reloads? But to me it just looks like a bad angle for the pic.

    • Anthony says:

      I assume you are referring to the first photo which based on the angle appears to have a finger on the trigger. Zoom in and you will see it’s on touching it. That is a 26 year navy seal on that photo who knows a thing or two about trigger control and finger placement. But maybe that isn’t enough expertise for you….

    Looks like the ones Christian Bale used in “Equilibrium”.

    This reminds me of the rounded base pads for the FNX 45 mags, something I hoped they would have continued on the 509. Depending on how you have your mags configured they protrude into you or your equipment depending on your position. The rounded off pads could be beneficial. Im willing to give them a try.

    The OEM 19X mags were my favorite but now these are better. Don’t take anyone’s word for it, try one and see for yourself. If you train reloads at speed, you will know.
