Has anyone found a company that has the XDS Pearce grip extension in stock recently ?
Have you tried the pearce grip website?
I just ordered a pair last week from Pearce.
As far as I'm aware, Pearce is the only place you can get them at the moment:
I love mine!
Pearce has them, but is closing 1/14 to 1/22. You can order and they will ship after 1/22.
eBay has a few right now, they have one for only $10 shipped
14.95 now... just ordered 1
Yep, I have two of them work great.
Dam they went up a lot!!!
Are these easy to install?
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.
