Have you tried going straight to the source?

Try calling SA!

No one has them as far as I know... The only ones that have been around are the ones that are being sold with the subcompact pistols. If you call springfield, they will only sell you the sleeves with the fullsize magazines... IIRC the price is around $45 each.

Why do you want one? The fullsize magazines fit and funciton fine in the subcompact pistols without the sleeve.

Don't know, just because I can I suppose.

Or, at least I thought I could. I've got 2 15 rounders for my XD9 SC and thought I might be able to get the sleeves separately. Apparently that is not the case. I wont pay $45 when I can get 15 round mags without the sleeve for $24.95.

I just ordered three from the factory. Did this about a month ago. They told me the magazines were back ordered for about thirty days. It was true. They came in this week. Hopefully the backlog is over. Price is high though. I bought Wilson Combat #47d's for my Kimber Warrior for less. Is it the length of the grip you like (large hands) or the higher capacity?

I have the pearce grip extender on the 10 rounder short mag, my fits my hand fine with that.
I just carry 2 15 rounders in a belt mag holder when I use it as my CCW so I have 40 rounds instead of 30. So to answer your question it's the higher capacity I am looking for. The sleeve just makes the mag more finished, and proabably helps grip too (haven't tried them so can't say for sure).

You might just have to order them and wait until they come in. That's what I did, placed on order for 2 of them from MidayUSA for $24.99 ea. They'rs expected in 6/10 XD-9 mags w/ sleeve
