Here was the reply I got from S&W on March 2 when I made this inquiry. I prefer the finger rest also.
We send both types of magazine out with each weapon. This allows the owner decide which type they prefer. We will be offering the butt plates for sale, but they are not yet available. They are limited to production of the magazines and will be available for purchase in 1-2 months.
