AR15 fan, I called springfield armory yesterday - they are taking orders for new production XD9 15 round mags - they are $29 ea. I ordered some for my XD9. They did say it would be about 30 days, but they said they will NOT be LEO stamped, and they will be new production hi-cap stainless Springfield mags. They said they would not charge until they shipped. I figured I'd better get on the list.

Talk to the FFL who sold you the gun. Springfield has put out info. that they will ship 2 mags for each gun in the FFL's stock, plus 2 mags for each previous XD customer that requests them. These mags are FREE. This info is from my FFL.

Call GT Distributors at 800-775-5996.

They don't list Springfield magazines on their website, but they have XDs in their show room. They are selling hi-caps over the counter at their showroom, but they might still require a letterhead because you are in Kalifornia.

SMP, from what I understand, even if you bought the Xd a while back, you can get your mags. I didn't hear all the details, but it sounded like Springfield does the mag swap (albeit, you keep your 10 rndrs) by the gun's serial #. Ask your FFL if they've heard anything about it. I've also heard this same deal from a second source.

If you don't want to use Beretta mags, you can find some HS2000 mags (Same gun, different name)
