I found some pics on midways website last night that I am pretty sure answers my question. When I compared the pics of a 10 round mag to a 13 round mag I see a difference. The "crimp" in the side...

If I would have bought it in South Dakota where I live now, or in NC where you live, it would have come with a 13 round magazine. Since I bought it in California, my XD45 service model only came...

I have seen a few aftermarket springs for less than $15 and it only takes a second to change the spring. I just can't get an answer about changing the spring to increase capacity.

I finally got around to ordering a complete upper from Model1 this weekend. They say 12-15 weeks. Oh well, there are no indoor ranges around here so I guess I can wait until spring to build it and...

Moving to South Dakota

I know there are no magazine capacity laws in SD but what other treats should I look forward to? Coming from Kalifornia what should I get the most excited about?

I'm sorry but I am confused by what you mean by "backstrap". The part about "milking the grip" makes sense to me. I know that the first couple hundred rounds I was anticipating the shot and...
