    Springfield XD 9mm Subcompact - new 13 round magazines

    So it looks like Springfield now has a 13 round magazine for their XD 9mm Subcompact. It looks like it is virtually the same size as the 10 round magazine. Sounds pretty sweet... When did this happen and how did I not hear about it earlier?

    Anybody have any actual experience with these? How did they manage to cram an extra 3 rounds in there? Are they still reliable?

    I want to know when they figure it out with .40S&W! I'd love to have 12+1.

    I am so There!

    I also have always wondered how they could squeeze 60% more rounds in the 16 rd mag that's only about an inch longer than the shorty....but I only carry the shorty.

    They have been out for a few months now. I recently aquired a few and ran a bunch of rounds through them without any problems. My carry setup is now: my XD9sc with one in the pipe, thirteen under and sixteen in the spare in my back pocket. Thirty rounds of 9mm, very comforting.

    My understanding is that there was always room for more rounds (some folks used .40 mags and adjusted the lips to get more 9mm in) but I think SA set it up originally as 10 rounds to be just like the Glock and to conform easily with California restrictions.

    Got it exactly right. It's basically a .40 mag with feed lips adjusted to accuately feed the 9mm. Of course other minor adjustments as well. If you look at a .40 mag and a 10 round 9mm mag, you'll see the 9mm mag has a couple indented lines towards the bottom. This prevents the follower from going all the way down. On the 13 round mags, no indentations.

    I have a couple with the pearce extension and carry exactly as CowboyKen does.
