    I've found 45 Compact mags hard to come by, both online and in stores. The 10 rounders are around, but I need some extra 8-round/finger rest ones, and no one seems to have any. Tips? Rumors? :dunno:

    S&W is having a very hard time keeping up with the demand for the M&P pistols. The demand has been so great that they're still having a hard time getting the parts, including magazines.

    I suspect the virtually unceasing demand for the guns caught them by surprise.

    I order mine directly from the factory, and I've had to wait (even as a LE armorer).

    I bought three from Midway USA back in December. Their website said they were backordered, but they shipped them within a week. About $36 each as I recall.

    How do the 10 rounders fit a 45C? Big gap at the bottom? I'd love to have a couple of those with a Glock or XD-like "extender" to cover the gap.
