    Sometimes I carry in ways that a larger, Officers grip profile is acceptable.

    Here are examples of a 7 round Tripp mag and an 8 round Mec-Gar with the X-Grip adapters.

    Size comparisons:

    How does the grip feel with that extended mag?
    Looks comfortable. Shot it yet? Better control?

    Nice gun!

    Range report soon.

    The X-Grip gives a substantially more secure hold, that's for sure.

    I'm expecting the X-Grip to just provide a full-frame feel to the CCO.

    Don't know how the Mec-Gar 8 rounders are gonna function.

    X-Grip specifies Novak, ACT-MAG, or Mec-Gar, so I snagged a deal on a Mec-Gar.
