Strike Industries EMP for M&P Shield

Just when you thought a week would go by without something new from the folks over at Strike Industries, nope. They having something new coming down the pipeline. This time it’s their EMP mag extension for the Smith and Wesson M&P Shield for both the 9mm and .40SW models.

They already make the EMP +2 mag extension for both the Glock 42 and the Glock 43 so it’s only natural they’d release one for the other popular semi-auto CCW pistol on the market. Their new Enhanced Magazine Plate adds 2 more rounds to the M&P Shield in 9mm and one more round for the .40SW version. Just like what they did with their Glock 42 and 43 EMP they’ve made their new EMP match the grip texture and styling of the the M&P Shield. It looks almost like a factory part. The polymer EMP also adds a little bit of length to the grip of the Shield, a plus for those with bigger mitts who need more surface area to hang onto.

The new EMP for the Smith and Wesson M&P Shield is going to retail for $14.95 over at, it’s currently not available but you can sign up to be notified when it goes on sale.

    Wil this fit on the 7 and 8 round mag? Will there then be a gap on the 8 round if it does fit the 7? Most important, do I want this, Hyve, or Magguts?

    • DanGoodShot

      It will fit both. They have the same bottom. No gap, the 8 has a sleeve that covers the gap already on it that should work with this. Whether it’s for you?, That’s up to you. Personally for me it’s a concealed carry piece. I don’t need it any bigger than it is. So no, I won’t be grabbing one. But, thats me. 🙂

        I kind of agree. I’ll be keeping the 7 rounder with Pearce base plate in the shield while carrying…however, it would make for an excellent upgrade to the secondary mag. It would also be excellent to have at the range or when not carrying IWB.

  • Landru

    I prefer Pearce Grip extensions and they are under $10.

    • FightFireJay

      Just for clarity, those don’t increase mag capacity.

      Also, if you’ve never tried this new product (not yet available), how do you know you prefer the Pearce piece?

      • Landru

        No, the Pearce do not increase round count as they are a modified baseplate.

        Once available I will buy one and see if its pinky rest is better or the same as the Pearce
        Grip which is what I purchased the Pearce in the first place.
