Default Numbering on magazine clips

I was noticing the numbering on my clips. It shows the number of rounds, but instead of "9" they have a "6". I was wondering if this is normal.

I forgot I have a XD 9mm Tactical

Duh!!! I think if I can read the "6" right I can read the "9" right.

I'm looking for information on this, not a comedian.

Welcome to FTF
I'm relaxed, and have a pretty thick skin. If you offer comments like that, at least follow it with a suggestion. If c3 don't like my comments, well mine was a response to his.

Anyway back to the original post. Attached are photos of the mag's. You can clearly seeit goes from 8 to 6 to 10.

You are right, it is probably a glitch and they work fine. It's just for the money you pay for the gun they should be able to count.

I would say the same about the glitch thing. Also just a point that is near and dear to my hart. These are magazines not clips. Clips hold ammo on them magazines hold ammo in them. I'm not attempting to be an A$$hole, I just don't want you to sound like you don't have a clue.

Yeah, I figured it was a glitch, just wondered if anyone else had run accross it.

Oh, by the way it is spelled heart. I'm not attempting to be an A$$hole, I just don't want you to sound like you don't know how to spell.

He could have a pet deer that is annoyed by terminology flubs.

I will have to take a look at my mags; I do remember the numbers looked odd for some reason. Mine is the .45 tactical, though.

Nice one, my bad I do suck at spelling. It is just one of those things that gets to me. I now I came across like an ass then I can't spell in my post, I'm a dumb as what can I say. Any how good luck with that.
