    XD 45 Mag release problem

    I noticed that an empty mag does not drop freely when I hit the mag release on my XD 45. It will drop about 1/4" or so, and stick. It seems as though the the top end of the mag well is just a little bit narrow. A full mag drops free without any problems. I thought maybe it was the mag, but I tried it with 3 other mags.

    Anyone run into this on their XD's?

    I had the opposite problem.
