I'm not sure we will be speaking about the same/same deal, armed1212 ... but, I have a LCP with a 'mag extension' so I can fit another finger on the gun.
This "extension" I have is just a replacement for the bottom portion of the magazine and does not give you more capacity. Just better retention. A little 'hook' for your finger to fit into.
With this mag extension, the gun retains it's 6+1 capacity.
I would get you a photo, but would take me too long.
Also, the LCP (IMO) is for very close engagement. The sights are rudimentary at best, and the gun has a pretty snappy recoil. Practice with the LCP is not all that much fun ... again IMO. But, the LCP is great to CC. I have a CT on the gun and don't rely on the sights. Just access the red dot and fire. Of course, one needs to practice with the gun to be effective in any encounter.
