Q: Is Taran Tactical Innovations open to the public?
A: No - Taran Tactical is NOT a storefront, and is NOT open to the public. All orders must be placed online. We have our product displayed at a local gun shop for visual references. Please call us for further information - (805) 522-1911.
Q: I got an email saying my package shipped but, no tracking info, why?
A: When an order is batched, a label is printed and a tracking number is automatically assigned meaning, we have the package ready to process and will be shipped after processing has completed(generally about 2-6 business days BUT can take up to 10 business days). *NOTE: This does not apply for firearms/gunsmithing packages*
Q: I received a USPS tracking number for a firearm order, and it has remained stagnant, why?
A: What you received is an automated response from our system. Please disregard the 'shipped' notification, as well as the provided tracking number. When your order is ready for shipment, we will call you before we proceed. That way, you'll know the exact day that your order will be shipped out.
Q: Why will some of your base pads be incompatible with specific magazines?
A: Our extensions are designed to work specifically with their intended magazine, the slightest off-angle may cause failure to feed or other malfunctions.
Q: Are there any Glock 26/27/43X/48 compatible base pads available?
A: Since we are a California based company, we are unable to make base pads that add capacity to 10 round magazines. This is why we do not have a designated base pad for such magazines aside from our +0 extensions, which may be found at the following link - https://tarantacticalinnovations.com/0-base-pad-for-glock-9-40-oem-magazines/
Q: Does Taran Tactical Innovations offer any firearms training courses?
A: Unfortunately, our range is not open to the general public at this time. We do not offer any classes or firearm training.
Q: Does Taran Tactical offer pistol gunsmithing packages with a firearm all inclusive?
A: Yes, on our 'Handguns' page. Otherwise, you will need to send your own firearm in for gunsmithing work. All other packages with the firearm all inclusive may be found at the following link - https://tarantacticalinnovations.com/firearms/
Q: Why does Taran Tactical only have one shipping option?
A: Our Mail Class is Priority(2-3 days once a label is created), and all of our packages are insured. Having one shipment choice ensures that all of our customers receive only the best. For orders totaling in $20 and below, please call us for further information. (805) 522-1911.
Q: Does Taran Tactical offer payment plans?
A: We require payment in full. With payment received up front, we will then be able to immediately get to work on your gunsmith package.
Q: What is your order cancellation/refund policy?
A: Customers may ask for an exchange, or a full refund will be applied as a credit to your account. If a refund is desired, there will be a credit card processing fee.
Q: I received base pads, and the coloring is different, why is that?
A: Since anodizing is an imperfect process, our color shades may vary between manufacturing batches and pictured products.
Q: Does Taran Tactical sell/work on threaded barrels?
A: Unfortunately, no. We will refuse any threaded barrels for gunsmith work.
Q: Why can I not purchase Taran Tactical Innovations, LLC base pads if I live in California?
A: California state law prohibits the sale of "conversions kits", and expressly includes base pads in this list. As of 2/6/2016 we are no longer allowed to ship magazine extensions that have the capability to take the magazine past 10 rounds to CA residents, that includes LEO's. If you are a LEO, you can send in your magazines, and we can put the pads on for you. We cannot sell the extensions separately. Please email Info@Tarantactical.com for further information.
Q: How do I install TTI base pads?
A: Remove the original base plate from the magazine as recommended by the manufacturer. Inside the magazine you may find a plastic or metal piece or insert at the bottom of the magazine spring. Remove this insert, and do not install it with our base pads. It will result in reduced capacity, and can cause malfunctions. When a magazine spring is provided with the base pad, reuse the original magazine follower and install it on the new springs. Slide the follower and spring into the magazine body, with the follower facing the same direction as with the original spring. Press the base pad's retention pin down so that it protrudes only from the bottom of the base pad, and is flush with surface where the base pad slides on to the magazine. With the spring depressed fully into the magazine body, slide the base pad on to the magazine body and let the spring settle into the base pad. Press the retention pin until it is flush with the bottom of the base pad, and your magazine will be ready to use.
The pin set screws are set with Loctite® at the specific tension we recommend, and will generally never need an adjustment. Tightening the base pad screw is not recommended and may be difficult because the screw is set with Loctite®; trying to force the set screw to turn could result in stripping the screw. We do not warranty base pads for stripped heads on set screws or filed retaining pins.
Q: Will my extension include a spring with purchase?
A: So long as we manufacture a spring for the extension, a spring will be included with purchase. If a spring isn't included, it's because we recommend using the stock magazine spring. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us at Info@Tarantactical.com
Q: Does Taran Tactical offer a Military/LEO/First Responder discount?
A: Yes! TTI offers a discount on all FUTURE orders. We can not apply a discount to orders that have already been placed. *Please ensure that you have an account set up through our website* We ask that you send in an image of a document or an ID with proof of employment/enlistment.

Q: Which magazine will I be able to use?
A: Each base pad is designed to work specifically with the magazine listed in the product description. Because of variations, even within the same brand, multi-platform compatibility is not guaranteed and, in many cases, cannot be designed. Our Glock base pads are all designed to work with Glock OEM magazines.
Q: What generation will Taran Tactical base pads work with?
A: Generation is irrelevant. Our extensions should be compatible with generations 1-5. Our magwells, however, will not be compatible with all generations. *We do not have any Gen 5 compatible magwells at this time.*

Q: Should I use a magazine extension on my carry weapon?
A: TTI is a Competition Firearms company. We thoroughly test our products to ensure reliability. However, if you want to use an after-market product on a carry or duty weapon, it is wise to thoroughly test the product BEFORE using it on duty or on your person for concealed carry.
Q: What is the difference between a Carry/Full Wrap Stipple & the Full Wrap Grand Master Stipple?
A: Carry/Full Wrap Stipple is the traditional stipple type(manipulating the existing polymer using a heat source). Grand Master Stipple is a 2-Part Epoxy(Silicon Carbide) stipple type(a more aggressive stipple, almost like skateboard grip tape, used mainly by professional competition shooters). Grand Master tends to wear more than traditional stipple, and will need to be re-applied with repeated use and wear.
Q: What does "will add a cant" mean when applied to utilizing Glock 9/40 +5/6 base pads on the Glock 19 or 23?
A: The cant is created by this base pad not following the angle of the grip as it does with the firearms it is designed to work with. This extension when installed, for example, on a Glock 19 magazine creates two different angles inside the magazine. This change in angle can cause spring to not compress in a straight line which may result in loss of capacity or a malfunction. We recommend only using Taran Tactical Innovations base pads with the magazine it has been designed for.
Q: Can I use a Glock 43 base pad with a grip plug ?
A: The Glock 43 base pad does not work with a grip plug installed.
Q: Will the TTI Magwells work with a back strap or beaver tail attachment?
A: NO. Our magwells are not designed to work with any modifications to the grip, including a back strap or beavertail.
Q: What is the difference between Black and Flat Black?
A: Base pads that are categorized as Flat Black are sand blasted to achieve a “flat” or “matte” look/texture before they get anodized. The regular Black base pads are anodized over billet aluminum so they have a slight sheen to them.
Q: Can you stipple my Glock frame even though it is not Black?
A: We will stipple non-black frames, but these are more difficult because of the consistency of the plastics. The additional time required is reflected in the price and this is handled on a case-by-case basis at this time. Please contact us at Info@tarantactical.com for more information.
