Fits GSG, Sig Sauer and Mauser 1911-22 pistols. The High Capacity Magazine Upgrade converts your factory 10 round magazine to a 16 round magazine! With a round in the chamber and 16 in the mag, that's 17 rounds in gun! The High Capacity Magazine Upgrade replaces the factory plastic basepad and factory follower with with an aluminum +3 (Plus 3) basepad and High Capacity Follower. The +3 basepad is also longer than the factory plastic basepad and allows for more positive seating of the magazine in the gun. The extra length is a great feature for 1911 pistols with magwells where seating a flush magazine can be difficult. Additionally the aluminum construction is more durable than factory plastic basepads making your magazine less prone to breakage upon dropping.

Included with this kit is your choice of either a new Factory Power Magazine Spring or Extra Power Magazine Spring. The extra power magazine spring has three (3) additional coils when compared to the stock spring.
Choose between the old style Orange or the New Enhanced Blue follower from NicTaylor with improvements over the old orange style. The engagement tab for the slide lock has been increased to help with fully engaging the slide lock. Additionally the rear pin on the follower has been redesigned to help reduce follower tilt and give more reliable feeding. If you have had issues with the orange followers in the past, you need to try this new enhanced follower.

3 of 5 I have one of these February 3, 2024
Reviewer: Randy from Arizona  
I like the idea that I can have more than the standard 10 shot magazine but the more rounds over 12-14 I start having feed problems. It’s hit or miss. Maybe the more I use it the better it will get. I have had 40 rounds through it when I noticed the retaining screw for the base extension had backed out and it was coming off. I quit at that point. Going home to put a little blue loctite on it. (Very small and shooting does loosen it and very small so it can only be tighten it lightly or the allen head will strip out). I noticed a review (comment) that was made about the extension (base) that it could of been shaped better to flow with the bottom of the grip, possibly at a different angle to flow better with the shape of the hand grips and make it more aesthetically pleasing. One can tolerate more based on functionality. But still, thanks for having the idea to expand this magazine to a higher capacity! I will keep using it and see if it improves with use. Thanks

1 of 5 GSG 16 rnd spring,follower and base pad December 26, 2023
Reviewer: Paul Johnson  
i purchased 3 of these kits for my GSG 1911, and they failed to perform reliably. nothing but stovepipes and malfunctions from all 3. I will add that the magazines and pistol were flawless before installing the kit

5 of 5 cool kits. September 13, 2023
Reviewer: Stephen Sutton from Crescent City, FL United States  
I'd seen some reviews that were several years old after I'd ordered. I found that they are definitely out of date. Installation was simple and the issue from the reviews seems to have been resolved with a better spring. I have has no issues what so ever. That said I am only able to load 15 rounds into the magazine and not 16 or 17. And I am perfectly fine with that. They work and work well. I plan to buy 2 or 3 more kits in the future.
