I bought a Springfield Armory XD-40 today. I'd been looking at buying a Glock 23, but after fondling the XD-40 I went with it. The grip fits my hand a lot better than the G23, and that's important.
The one thing that they told me about the XD-9 was that it will accept M9 magazines. I like that! But I wanted a 40. So now the question is where to get hi-caps?

Well, the XD-9 was said to be able to use Smith & Wesson 59? series mags.  Somene once said that Berretta mags worked.

Now, I know that the Beretta is made in 40, so that mag might work.  There is a complete postin/topic over at .... HS2000 & SA-XD Talk is where to look for more info.

Edit- But, isn't the Berretta 40 mags only 11 rounders?

If you would have bought a XD-9 and then bought some XD-40 mags you can put 14+ rounds of 9mm in the XD-40 mags legally..

Don't think you'll find any HiCaps in 40S&W. Buy yourself a couple extras and enjoy that pistol. I've had an HS2000 since they first hit the shelves and it's been near perfect.

I have been seriously considering picking up an S.A. XD-9, but I would much prefer to have it with a 5 inch barrel.  I wonder why only .40 version is advertised with the 5 inch barrel?

I already have a USP40 and a G27, plus I am adding a G23 sometime in the future, so I would prefer my XD pistol in 9mm.  I think I am going to hold out a bit to try to get a 5 inch tactical version.  Anybody seen 5" 9mm XDs for sale anywhere yet?

Ive been using pre-ban Beretta 92 mags in my Beretta 96 since I bought it. Ive gone through atleast 2000 rounds and have yet to have a failure to feed and you can get 12 rounds of 40SW into a 9mm pre-ban mag.

Interesting. I picked up some post-ban 96 magazines that I modified a little. Works just fine. Oh, and here's a pic of it.

The SW mags work in the HS2k and XD-9. I've been using Beretta and Taurus mags in mine. They stick out .20" but work flawlessly. The SW mags need some mod done to the follower but the Beretta/Taurus do not.

Haven't checked into the XD-40 mag options for hi caps yet. Go to

www.hs2000talk.com

for info on this. I think you can get 12 rnds of 40 in the Beretta/Taurus mags.
