Yup. There's a small button on the mag baseplate. Take a punch (or small screwdriver) and push in and slide the baseplate forward (make sure to hold the spring with your thumb or it will go flying). While holding the spring in place, remove the old baseplate and put the Pearce extension on - it will click in place. That's all there is to it...

I used the key for the included gunlock to push the base plate button. Love improvised tools.

Installation is less than a minute. I have 2 5 round magazines. One with the extension and one without. I use the default one for pocket carry. Less to clear the pocket with. When carrying IWB I use the 5 rounder with the Pearce Grip. I prefer the Pearce Grip configuration but pocket carry needs some concessions

You guys don't think that the Pearce extension make the grip feel a bit "odd"? I have average sized hands and I get a better purchase with just the 5 round mag. Fingers naturally curl under the baseplate and it just seems a better fit.

I have wide hands. A good bit of my palm and my whole pinky were left dangling off the end of the grip without the Pearce extension. Just depends on your grip style and the size of your hand.

Ordered mine from Pearce today. There is a posting on their site saying that they will be closed until the 21st. I can wait.

Has anyone heard anything more about a Plus One extension? Now that the 9mm version is beginning production it seems like the base plates will be interchangable and the extensions could be universal. Hopefully pearce is working on the Plus One extension now.

The extensions for the 45 will not fit the magazines for the 9MM. James posted a pic from his Shot Show coverage.
