Golden Saber 124+p
The 13 round HK magazine and X-Grip adapter is what works best for me. Though I will but a couple HK factory 13 round extenders when available later this tear.

My pinky does just fine with shorter grips also, but then I have hands that might be smaller than many. What is the spring swap you reference above....just to save me time...and effort....I am an old, lazy fart! <g>
That 13 round mag coming for the SK might be a great idea if it did not extend the grip much. But I suspect it will be like the "sleeved" extra round(s) magazines I had for my Springfield XDS and other carry pistols. The grip length on the VP9SK is about the longest I want to carry. Maybe it's just my particular physique, but my SIG P250 has nearly identical dimensions, and it's borderline for carry. But to make up for that, it has 12 rounds. I suppose I'll do nothing for now....just use the VP9SK when it arrives for awhile and hopefully the 13 round mag arrives soon.....I have heard November this year. But I suspect the 13 round magazine will be longer than the 10 or the 10+2 HKParts extension.
BTW, the second mag with the VP9SK purchase has a pinky extension, which I will never use, even at the range. I do not need just the grip extension. I guess I will try to trade it for the flat floor plate model, or simply replace the floor plate with an HK OEM one. But then again, I may get an HKParts 10+2 extension and run 200 rounds or so through it....that's the least I do with any potential carry pistol before I'll carry it.
Referencing up to the gent who believes 10 rounds are enough. Sure. Could be. But maybe not. What is the logical amount to carry? And how many additional magazines? I always plan to carry one additional magazine whether I'm carrying a Kahr 380 or a double stack something-or-other....but I get lazy about 75% of the time and just go with the pistol in a IWB or pocket holster. Now when I was still a LEO, it was different. I always had at least one additional magazine when carrying off duty.
Thanks for the replies, guys. Glad to hear at least one fellow has had a bit of testing with the H&KPart 2 round extension.
I tried everything available at the time. I finally decided the best grip extension for the P30SK was a P30.
Not knocking the SK just did not like the short grip or any of the pinky extensions.
Is there a difference in the full size and compact magazines other than length? In other words, would the mag extensions work on a full size magazine?

The factory pinkey extension fits my hand perfectly.
The 15 round clip shown also fits your hand well but ads a little weight.
