Xdm grip chop

I just ordered a XDM 3.8" with the full size grip. Ive seen some threads with xd's and xdm's copping the grip to fit a compact mag. What im wondering if i can do a grip chop shorter than the full mag and longer then the compact mag. I was thinking i could then chop both of the mags down and re-assemble them to fit my custom grip chop. I have smaller hands and dont like the full grip and already have a CC gun. Is this possible? Anyone ever cut down mags?

It is a bad idea to mess with your magazines.

What would be the goal? Is the compact just too small?

Sounds like you need to look at some different guns.

Try a s&w, or a kahr.

IMO I would never ever chop the grip or mess with the magazines of any of my guns. Nor would I stipple or cut into the grip in any way.

You've voided any and all warranties and made your gun worth zero in a heartbeat. If you don't like how your gun fits buy another gun that fits better.

+1 with Snaphook. If you don't like it buy a different gun. IMO
