New Glock 48 and 43X Basepads for Shield Arms Magazines from Taran Tactical

    Owners of Glock 48 and Glock 43X pistols take note: Taran Tactical has developed new basepads for the Shield Arms Magazines. The product will add 5 extra rounds of 9x19mm to your magazine, for a maximum of 20+1 rounds.

    This new basepad is machined out of billet aluminum, after which it is hard anodized with four possible colors (Black, Flat Black, Titanium Gray and Coyote Bronze). All of the machining and manufacturing is done in the USA. The Taran Tactical Glock 48 and 43X basepads only work with Shield Arms® 15 Round Magazines. They will not work with the standard 10 round magazines.
