S&W "grip+2 mag adapters. part # 24212
1-800-331-0852

When I bought mine they were backordered, but came in a few weeks.. They fit/work great.
They are mis-named in that using the standard 5906 15rd mag in the 6906 actually increases the capacity by +3 rounds.





I actually prefer the "feel" of the grip w/the 5906 mags in it over the standard 12rd mags w/fingertip extension on it.

Best Wishes,

Jesse

I might as well, if they only fit snugly. The gap is too large and far from uniform from front to rear. That said, they are useful...

Sorry..

OK, let me rephrase that.

The +2 adapter, when used in in the 6906 pistol with the 5906 15rd mags actually offer +3 extra rounds.

Best Wishes,

Jesse
