errr, its best to not bother with it. just call springfield to replace your mags. i did as others have suggested and try to straighten the mag yourself. well, i did as they stated and with the mags EMPTY they drop like butter, but as soon as i put a round in the mag it becomes difficult to release.

on an even worse note, if i put 10 rounds in (im in kali )the mag wont push all the way up or lock on the catch. but for some reason i can have 10 in the mag and with the slide locked back, the mag fully loaded will lock on the catch. whats going on?

this is sad...ive only put 150 rounds through her.

I am new to the forum but would mention that I have an XD40SC and noticed that empty mags wouldn't drop, only dropping approximately to the level of the release catch in the magwell, then requiring a pull. Both my stock mags felt "tight and sticky" this way. I recalled that I had been using some cheap, jacketed flat-nose rounds at the range--won't mention the manufacturer. I am not recommending this but I placed the mags flat on my workbench with the back of the mag down and tapped them firmly up and down the front side of the mag with a hard plastic (not rubber) mallet. They now drop freely and feed perfectly with no failures both firing and hand-cycling. When all else fails, brute force prevails. Again, I don't recommend that you pound on your firearms components but I did and it worked. It is also my understanding that Springfield is aware of some mag warping or bulging and has been known to replace mags FOC.

There is an issue with the 45xd. The rim of the case being extracted hits the nose of the top round in the mag on extraction and then drags across the case neck. It is not an issue so much if you use ball ammo as I have seen. If you use swc or lead bullets the case rim really binds up on the soft lead and then the rearward force bends the mag.

Do you use swc or lead rounds without a jacket?

I haven't had any problems with the magazines during the several years I've been shooting a 40 or 45 XD. All of my ammo has been jacketed factory or reloads.
