Strike Industries EMP S&W Shield Magazine Extension Now Shipping

Strike Industries has announced that the new EMP base plates for the S&W Shield are now shipping so I guess one could say that STRIKE’S GOT EXTENDOS! Mighty fine looking extendos that look like they could very well be factory if it wasn’t for the SI logo discreetly placed on the side.

Following on the success of the EMP +2 magazine extension for the Glock 42 and 43, the new Shield EMP extensions seamlessly integrate with the ergonomics, texture, and styling of the M&P Shield while adding 2 rounds to the 9mm version and 1 round to the .40 Shield by only changing out the factory flat base plate for the EMP magazine extension.

Package include
– 1x Magazine Plate Extension for M&P Shield
– 1x Locking Plate
– 1x Locking Plate Screw

– Plus 2 round capacity 9mm, +1 .40S&W
– Extended grip surface that matches Weapon’s grip pattern
– Impact resistant polymer
– Compatible with both standard and extended length factory magazines

With as many magazine options as there are on the market, the EMP brings a distinctly OEM feel to the table that many shooters will no doubt appreciate. Just like an OEM part, the EMP extension is mold3ed from polymer and shares the grip texture and styling almost perfectly.

With an MSRP of only $14.95, the EMP magazine extension is available now directly from Strike Industries. Check them out on the web HERE to learn more.

    This looks awesome.
    “Take my money!”

  • Just Say’n

    Yeah, but for a couple of dollars more you can get a new 8-round mag.

  • Johnsmyname

    I don’t see the point of all these mag extensions for sub compact pistols. Maybe if you were shooting a BUG match or something, but not for carry. At that point just carry a full size.

    • Beju

      I’d use one on a spare magazine, but otherwise, yes, one might as well carry a bigger pistol.

      • Johnsmyname

        Yeah I can see that, I carry the larger stock one with an after market pinky handle on the carry.

        • Beju

          I do the pinky tuck when shooting a Glock 26 with a stock 10 round magazine, but if I carry a backup, it’s a G19 magazine with an extension.

    • USMC03Vet

      Bruh, I carry a sub compact double stack extended. They need to make extensions for extended mags. I’d buy that in a heartbeat.

      • Johnsmyname

        Hah! Why not just nut sack it bro, even better you can snail it and all the hipsters will rejoice, mustache parties for everyone!

    • John Yossarian

      The point with these extensions – For the single stack Glocks and M&P, etc is to extend the capacity while maintaining a thinner pistol for IWB carry.

      If printing becomes an issue, one can also choose to carry with a flush-fit magazine while having the extended capacity magazine on-body as a backup.

  • Gun-Toting Racist

    If the Shield is ~4.88″ tall with flush mags, how tall with these +2s? and is that 7+2(+1) or 8+2(+1) or either?

    • jeff

      i dont know the exact height of the emp extentions, but it will be like 5.3~ inches tall with the extention, and it works with both 7 and 8 round mags

  • darkman

    I put one on my Shield 9mm. It only fits the 7 round mag. I carry two 8’s for backup. Works great and carries well with my Kydex OWB. Who needs 2 extra rounds? I guess no one until you do. I do often carry a full size P89DC with 15+1 with one 15 backup. At the end of the day it comes down to choice. Although I’ve never heard anyone say they had to much ammo in a DGU situation.

  • USMC03Vet

    Make one for the XD. 16 round extended ain’t enough for summer time when the animals are all hot.
