    I have a 26 with pearce exten on the
    mags but looking at gap. The problem
    is the pearce add 3/4 " do the gap add
    any to the length and if not does it help
    in gripping . This is my carry pistol and
    want as little to conceal as possible

    I have both. I'll conceal with the GAP plates, and use the Pearce extensions when length isn't an issue. Whatever you use, shoot with it (or with both).

    Alternatively, you can use the Pearce +0 plates (you didn't indicate which ones you were looking at, but with 3/4" additional length, I'm thinking +2). They don't add length to the rear of the magazine, which is a... (made up term here) critical printing point.

    But with the gap plates do they drop
    past the mag much and is there room
    for the pinky on top of the gap

    No to both... if by "drop past the mag much" you mean "do they make the mag much longer".

    I prefer the GAP plates over the stock plates because they provide a definitive boundary between your ring & pinky fingers. Firing my 27, I can easily feel the flip on the base of my ring finger, and (I think) it provides me with quicker recovery.

    I have the GAP baseplates and you cannot rest your pinky on the extension. But it does definately lock in the hand better!

    +1 on the gap plates. I use the pierce +1 & 2 on my 27 if I'm carrying on my belt, and the gaps when wearing my ankle rig.

    Until I picked up GAP plates I had a hard time drawing my gun. Not anymore.
