Another grip chop question

I'm going to be getting the grip on my service cut down in order to be able to carry it concealed. Buying a new pistol isn't am option as I am getting married. If springer precision or bowtie tactical does the cut down a. which magazines will I have to use compact or subcompact and b. will using the full size magazines I have now with the spacer turn the grip back into the full service size.

If it's a 9 or 40, the sub compact mags will work and yes the sleeve mag combo will return it to Service size.

If it's a 45 it will be the Compact mags and the sleeve will once again return it to Service size.

Check that a grip chop does not cost you more than what a trade + cash would be for a new compact grip pistol that would include a compact mag and the three free mags from SA. .

I just did my own grip chop job for my xdm 40 cal 4.5 full size. Went very well. Saved my self some good money. Your talking around 100 bucks to chop pluse to send your gun there and back. I don't know how to post. When I figure out how I guess type in xdm grip chop.
