It looks like they are coming with the grip zone now. I just bought one today. Have to wait for it to come in. Going to call them tomorrow to make sure the one they send has the grip zone. I have ocd, sounds stupid but that would bother me. I bet SA would let you trade your sub compact one for a new grip zone version.When I bought my mod2 9, the extended magazine had the regular sub compact grip extension. I got my new magazines as part of the promo and it has the grip zone texture on it.
