Wobbly? Do you mean that it actually wiggles when you jiggle it with your hand?

Or...do you mean that it sounds like it is jingling when you shake it with a full magazine? The cartridges will kind of jingle, somewhat loose, in a full magazine.

Just a thought.

I mean that with a full magazine +1 in the chamber, it (the magazine) feels wobbly in the mag well while fully clicked in. This is the full size magazine with grip extender only. The flush magazine feels fine. A bit of play but nowhere near the play I have with the full mag.

I know exactly what you're talking about. When full, the 13 rounder does wiggle around more than I'm used to. As I said before though, this has never caused issues of any kind. Comparing mine to others at a couple different shops/ranges gave the same results. It just seems to be the nature of the beast with this one. Shoot it and enjoy it, that's what I'm doing!

I would think maybe a rubber band fitted between the bottom of the mag and the sleeve might solve the wobbling, the after market sleeve I had for my G23 had a set screw, I spent a few minutes working to eliminate any play and allow for a fast easy mag change. If ur comfortable w basic tools u could drill(the thickest part), tap and install a set screw.

I believe could be part of the design as well. The XDMs , like Glocks, were never intended to be display queens. These are service pistols. If you drop a magazine , you can pick it up, knock the worst of the mud off on your pant leg, then load and shoot reliably. The shorter grip on the compact also doesn't support the full length of the mag, which adds to the wiggle factor. I've never put an extended mag in my Glock, but now I have to try one just for the comparison .

So, it comes with 3 X-tension sleeves? Assuming one for each blackstrap size.

My question is how do the other sleeves fit if they are used with the wrong blackstrap. Doesn't work at all or just off a bit??

They are just off a bit, the main thing to look at is it biting your hand during shooting. It is very rare however occasionally with the same size backstrap and sleeve I find after a couple hundred rounds the meaty part of my palm is a little sore from being bitten by the gap. However it has only happened a couple of times and depended on how much I was shooting.

I've got a lot of trigger time with mine now, and have had no issues with the biting problem. I only fire 50-75 rounds through one gun before I switch to another one , though. Yeah, I'm a gun whore.
