  • Extends Magazine for Improved Seating
  • Grooved Sides to Aid in Magazine Removal
  • CNC Machined from Aircraft Aluminum
  • Use With or Without Standard 1911 Magwells

New flair design with wider base provides better grip to remove magazine faster from mag pouch and insure positive seating without slipping. Designed for Wilson ETM 9mm or 45 ACP magazines to be used with or without Magwell. 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). The wide base also 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. 

DP Standard basepads are extended length factory replacements while DP No Gap basepads are designed for the DP 1911 Ice Magwell with No Gap Insert only.

Either way you go it improves positive mag seating.

  1. Base pads

    Good fit, well

  2. Great Mag Bases

    Posted by David on Aug 8th 2018

    The Dawson Basepads work great. The right fit and easy to use make reloads fast and easy. Along with the Ice Magwell a combination hard to beat. I can't imagine using anything else. 5 stars hands down.

  3. Not for 8rd ETM Mag

    Posted by Jeff on Apr 24th 2018

    The basepad finish is nice. I would of rated it 5 but I had to modify for it to fit the 8rd ETM magazines with the steel flush base. I think the 9rd you would not have to modify. I purchased the no gap for the 8 round and sanded the notch flat with the top of the basepad and then had to file the sides to fit inside the grip notch.

  4. Simple and effective

    Exactly what I ordered. Installed in 30 seconds. Fits the mag well perfectly.

  5. Gives Needed Extra Length

    Posted by Gary on Mar 18th 2018

    I added the ICE magwell, and the stock Wilson mag pads were just a little too short to reliably seat the magazines. The extra length was enough to fix this issue.

  6. Perfection

    Posted by Kevin on Oct 30th 2017

    Standard ETM basepads sit flush with my SVI 1911 Competition magwell. Dawson's extended fit basepads give me the extension I was looking for while still making weight. Also, fits the USPSA box with a 5.4" gun! I highly recommend this product.

  7. Solved my over insertion issue.

    Posted by Mark on Sep 29th 2017

    Had issue with my Wilson Combat ETM 10 round 9mm mags over inserting and jamming my pistols. This base pad solved the issue.

  8. Very nice

    Posted by Earl Cowher on Feb 24th 2016

    I had a tall adjustable sight that kept my gun from fitting the box with these base pads. They seat very well and leave a grip to pull the mag out easily if you need to. They extend enough to allow positive seating with the Dawson IPSC mag well. I like them well enough that I ordered new sights to fit the box.

  9. DP Extended base pad for Wilson ETM magazine

    Posted by David K. on Nov 2nd 2015

    This base pad is super lightweight and is easy to install. I use the Dawson Precision ICE magwell, and this base pad gives just the right amount of extension to make a good positive reload. I would highly recommend if you want a competition ready pistol!
