I've yet to use any of them on my Kimber mags but have them. Just curious what the purpose is for them and whether or now anyone uses them. I prefer the clean look to my mags personally and don't like the extra sticking out.

The rubber pads are to keep the mag from drop free damage. Reloading, we often let the mag fall to the deck, typically causing dings and dents to the bottom of the mag. The rubber pad takes that beating so the mag stays functional. It also allows the mag to stick out of the bottom of the gun so you get a good mag slap during a mag change.

I have them on all my 1911 mags.

Thank you RJ. I guess I never really thought about those reasons. I always thought it was just for finger placement on smaller frames.
