This is not a magazine extension, nor it is an extended pinky rest. The GeePlate (Gee stands for Glock Essential Enhancement) is an aftermarket magazine floor plate that extends over the pistol’s grip when the magazine is inserted. The GeePlate is designed for subcompact Glock pistols.
The purpose of this accessory is to improve the drawing of these small concealed carry handguns ensuring that you will maintain a more solid and consistent grip thanks to that little protrusion. The company also advertises this accessory to improve the recoil management of the weapon allowing to better control the follow-up shots.
Compared to the pinky rest extensions, the GeePlate doesn’t increase the overall height of the gun. That’s an arguable advantage because the pinky rests normally extend only the front portion of the grip which is not a huge problem to conceal.
The GeePlate is made in the USA. According to the manufacturer it is made of “strong yet flexible polymer”. The installation on the magazines of Glock pistols is simple. It is installed like a standard magazine floor plate. Just remove the existing floor plate and install the GeePlate instead of it.
There are two models of GeePlate. One of them is designed for the Glock 26, 27, 33 and 39 pistols and has an MSRP of $29.95 per a pair of base plates. The second version is compatible with Glock 43 pistol magazines and a couple of these plates will cost you $24.95. They sell the GeePlates only in pairs. The prices also include the shipping cost.
Currently, the company is working to release a similar product for the SIG P365 which will be called SiGPlate (see the image below).
I think if it does what it is advertised to do (especially in the follow-up shots controllability department) then this little device can possibly be useful not only for the subcompact pistols but also for compact and full-size ones.
