1911 magazine bumper pads

I'm looking for a good site to order 1911 magazine bumper pads. I would prefer the amaller pads that are about 1/2 inch thick and the screw in type. Anyone know of a good site that I can order these from?
Thanks

I like the Kings Gunworks #308A bumper pads. They're about 1/2" thick and they come in nifty colors. Being the boring lad that I am, I go for the black or gray ones though.

Brownells (800) 741-0015 has sold me dozens of these items. They carry about 6 or 7 kinds but the best ones are made by Pachmayer. They even come with a little jig to make sure you drill the holes in the right place on the mag. base pad.

Retail price for a kit with 5 bumpers is $13.98 or just under $10 for FFLs and Instructors.

Their part number is 692-700-000

Good Luck.

1911 Magazine base pads on eBay

I just ordered a bunch of these from a guy off eBay - 11 for $1.

They don't come with screws, but you can get the screws at pretty much any Home Depot or hardware store for 10 cents each. Sure beats the regular price of $1 or more per pad. These appear to be the regular pads, not some of the specialty types, and are black.

I am not affiliated with the seller, a gun store in Texas, but I thought others might be interested in this deal.

I don't use the screws. Too much like work to install; too much to remove the pad for mag disassembly.

I use body side molding tape, available at any auto parts store. One roll will last you a lifetime; you don't need jigs, and the dense foam tape helps absorb the shock when you drop the mags. :wink:
