Just looking at the magazine extenders or bumpers made by Longshot. The factory magazine is somewhat recessed which requires you to reach up inside the mag well to load.
These bumpers or extensions allows the magazine to be tapped home.

Can anyone give me some feedback on these.

They sell 4 for $19.95 on Amazon.

Haven't seen them, so only thing I can tell you is the reviews look good. Is this a new problem with the TS? I've had mine for a while, never had a problem inserting or removing the mag.

Thanks Codger, no I would not consider this an operational problem inserting or removing the magazine. When the magazine on my 995ts is fully locked in on my 995ts, I have to slightly reach up into the magazine well with my finger & push to make sure the mag is secured (not a big deal).
In the break in period, I had a few jams that required that I remove the mag by pulling. When the mag is recessed into the mag well, it is hard to get a grip on the magazine to pull it out. These magazine bumpers takes both of those issues away. Just makes things a bit easier.

I dunno if this is thread worthy but I happened to look on http://www.hi-pointfirearms.net/index.htm and they have 20 round magazines for the 995ts now. I will most likely be getting a few of these, as they are EVIL looking. lol

Yes Sir Mechwolf, I have the Redball 20 round mag. Only had it to range 1 time. The mag did not feed well. I had about 5 fail to feeds each time I used the mag. Hoping this is just part of the break in period.

I cannot understand why the most common caliber cartridge in the world would have any magazine not work good with them inside? It doesn't appear to be rocket science! A box to hold everything, spring, a plate to push up on the rounds, and a set of lips to position them correctly....how can this be fornicated up? Yet, Hipoint does it. :dunno: Or allows the supplier to do it.

I wonder if the composition of the metal of the magazine itself is wrong? Maybe it's not slippery enough? Maybe the paint that is used hangs the cartridges up? Anyone care to buy a new magazine and if it malfunctions right out of the package soak it in paint remover and see if that solves the feed issues? Don't do anything other than remove the factory paint...no sanding, no oiling, no adjusting...

I'd do it but I don't shoot my c9 enough to warrant another mag.

Please keep us updated if it does any better. Maybe adjusting the ears and lips of it might help?
I used to have a few problems with factory mags until I did this.
Maybe I'm just hoping for the best so I can be confident in buying them. Good luck!

Off topic but to update
The Red Ball 20 rounder fed perfectly at my next range visit. Looks like these mags need some break in time. Left the mags filly loaded for several weeks

Randy, bumpers go on the front and rear to aid in preventing damage in case of collision. (chuckle) (and maybe a snicker too)

:thumb: Thanks for the clarification! I had the erroneous belief they were to help protect my paper copies of the Riflemen magazine. :stupid:

Randy, the product is marketed with the name ot "magazine bumper".
I would call it a magazine extension. Just attaches to the end of the magazine but only extends but no added rounds.

They are sold by Longshot. Here is the website..take a look.

Ohhhhh! :groan: I call them end plates. Not necessarily what the industry standard name is however... :stupid: Thanks for clearing it up although that is what I was expecting it to be even though I truly wasn't certain. It makes sense though...if the mag drops free they act as a bumper (hopefully) as they hit the ground.
