    I just got home with my brand new XD40 subcompact & I LOVE IT!! Even though I havent even had a chance to shoot it yet since the range was already closed, so I guess I'll have to wait till tomorrow :(.... Anyway, it came with 2 mags, one extended & one standard. My question is how many rounds is the capacity for the standard mag, 8 or 9?? I was able to squeeze 9 in there but it was super tight, & I dont want to mess something up by forcing it, Thanks

    The short mags hold 9+1 (9in mag one in the pipe)

    I added these pierce grip extensions+1 to the short mags. :)

    The exact same one,except OD green! Mine has grip tape on it and I highlighted the 'billboard' areas in white. The mags also have the pierce +1 grip extensions.

    I'm going to take the tape off and add some slip ons instead, the grip tape scratches my stomach when carrying,lol. :D

    Thanks Gary! Brian, where did you get those Pierce grip +1 extensions? And are the just extensions you put on the standard mags, or is Pierce +1's an altogether different mag??

    I ordered them from midwayusa. You install them,easily, on the mags you already have. I think they were around $7 each.

    :cool:

    While the longer magazine is more comfortable I practice with the stock shorter mag. I carry at 3:30 and the butt of the grip is what prints so less is best for me. That being said, open carry is legal in Ohio so I am not overly concerned about printing.

    Pearce makes a +1 grip extension? I'm a little bummed I didn't get the memo until today. I have Pearce extensions that do not add capacity. however, I do have this sweet A$$ Arredondo spring/baseplate on my backup mag. 12 rnds of .40 gold dots and it conceals WAY better in my pocket than the standard 12 rnd mag. It is a bit pricier than Pearce (I think I paid around $17 on midwayusa).
