Default Does the S&W Shield Fit the IDPA Bug Box

Can anyone confirm with certainty that the Shield fits the bug box?

Published dimensions for height 4.6" seems like it will just fit the box at 4 5/8".

Need a Bug gun and this seems like a cheap option.

A search gives me conflicting answers. Thanks.

It fits with the 7 round mag but not the 8 rounder. G26 fits as well.

PM720 and ColdTurkey are both correct. Even though you would only put 6 rounds in the 8 round mag it does not fit in the box. Only the flush 7 rounder does.
