    Shield Arms has been producing magazine extensions for some time now and include a variety of color and capacity options. Their main offering looks to be a plus 5/4 (+5 for 9mm/+4 for .40S&W). However, they are currently taking pre-orders for their newest additions for the Glock 43X and Glock 48. The 43X/48  has two options, one extension will add four rounds to the magazine’s capacity and the second extension offers an additional three rounds. Shield Arms have listed the 43X/48 extensions for $39.99. The extension for the standard Glock 43 is listed for $29.99 and adds two to the magazine’s capacity. The specs below are for the upcoming Glock 43X/48 extensions.

    As previously mentioned, Shield Arms has also been offering magazine extensions for other popular pistol models as well. They currently have extensions for 9mm and .40S&W Glocks (17, 19, 19X, 22, 23, 26, 27, 34, 35, 43, 45), CZ (P10c, P07, P09) and the Sig P320. Shield Arms lists that they sell extensions for Smith & Wesson, however, I was not able to find any current product images or specification pages.
