    It should since it's designed for the full size XD, which it's 13 round magazines can be used in the XDm.

    Negative, the XDM mag is a tad bit wider than the XD. I tried it already.

    That's odd, because on Springfield's website they say the XD .45 magazines will fit in the XDm.

    Military orders to LA, California.

    My new 22lr target pistol has a threaded barrel, so it's classified as an assault weapon and banned. My Bushmaster M4 is banned too. My tac mini-14 has to have the flash-hider removed. 3 other pistols are over the 10 capacity limit.

    So, I have 6 firearms that I may have to store out of state unless I figure something else out. I have a relative who will store them for me for free.

    Mag Springfield XD XDM 45 ACP 10-Round SS

    I wonder which one this will fit in since it says both XD and XDm.

    Anyone have a link to a 10 round XDm for 45 ACP they know works in the XDm?

    Are you sure you were using the full-size magazine for 45? They make a different magazine for the compact that is not interchangeable.

    I'm finding some info that says 9mm and 40 aren't interchangeable for XD to XDm, but that for 45 full-size does work to interchange.

    It would be great if someone has both the XD and XDm 45 and can try it out. Specifically with the 10 round full-size mag would be the best test.

    I've got a bullet button lying around, if you want it I can pass it off sometime in the nearish future.
    What base are you hitting? Or you a recruiter?

    If I had a bullet button installed, what else do I need to do to make it legal?

    I don't think I'll be on LA AFB, but at a government office nearby in El Segundo. Orders aren't until summer though, so it's still more than 6 months away.

    If the DoD takes the budget hits that are likely, then all 2012 PCS moves will be cancelled because paying for moves will be one of the first things to axe. It's happened before too! There's a good percentage chance this may happen.

    I run mags from my XD45 in my XDm45 all the time. No issues. They're the same mags. The OP should just have to make sure that the 10rd mags are set up for the fullsize XD45 or XD45 tactical (as opposed to the XD45 service/compact).

    But for other calibers they may use different mags, as I believe the XDm9/40 boasts a higher capacity than the standard XD9/40.

    FYI, I went ahead and ordered a 10 round mag for my XDm 45. When it arrived, it even had XDm on the packaging.

    Although I didn't fire, I did cycle a few rounds through by racking the slide a few times and it looks like it fits and works.

    Couldn't bear to part with my XDm while stationed in CA for several years, so I went ahead and bought the 10 round mag so I'm "Kalifornia" legal.
