  • Extends Magazine for Improved Seating
  • New Flair Design Aid in Magazine Removal
  • CNC Machined from Aircraft Aluminum
  • Use With or Without Standard 1911 Magwells

DP 1911 Basepads are designed with maximum length for positive seating in competition or tactical environments. The unique wedge shape fits IPDA and USPSA  boxes (you should always check your pistol in the appropriate box as guns vary dimensionally). There are deep finger grooves on the sides to assist in rapid mag removal if needed. We offer basepads for most popular 1911 magazines and all are CNC machined from aircraft aluminum to Dawson Precision tolerances for a perfect fit and lasting durability. With the 1911 single stack making a strong comeback it made sense for Dave Dawson to make a basepad that increased the consistency of a fast, smooth, positive seating reload that accommodates not only the bigger, deeper magwells on the market, like the DP 1911 Ice Magwell, but all other types such as the Smith and Alexander Magwell.

  3. Installed basepads on Springfield magazines

    Posted by Ed on Apr 4th 2018

    Installed these basepads on the magazines that shipped with my 9mm Springfield 1911 Range Officer. The basepads fit perfectly. I would give these 5 stars but the screws extend so far into the magazine that I can only load 8 rounds into the 9 round magazines.

  4. Fantastic Upgrade

    I installed these on KimPro Tac-Mags I use for USPSA competition. Excellent fit and easy to install. Works fantastic with Dawson's Ice gap magwell. Great price.

    bought these for my kimber stainless 1911. They come with screws. I didnt want to go get a tap so i slowly worked the screws in and it self threaded. Dawson products are just excellent.

  6. Perfect Fit

    The basepad is a perfect fit. They were easy to install. You do need a 4-40 tap to tread the holes. The basepad is designed to work with existing holes in your magazine. Picked up a 4-40 tap at sears for $4 and 30 minutes latter 7 magazines completed. Hoping this will increase my speed in mag changes in IDPA and USPSA I am sure it will.
