OK, how many rounds does the magazine hold?

    I have looked at spare magazines for my .40 subcompact and there are only two made for this gun. The ten round and the thirteen round.

    Herein lies the dilemma. They are actually the 9 round and 12 round magazines. I have seen them advertised as 11 and 14, 9 and 12, 10 and 13.

    The magazines having springs so tight you need a Russian weightlifter sitting on your thumb just to load 5. I don't think I have ever loaded them to capacity. :lol:

    So I am asking, why is there such a discrepancy of numbers?



    On a related note...

    I went to the local gun shop last week and surprise, they had three 11 round subcompact magazines. :) I got them home and tried them in my gun and they only went in about 3/4 inch. All three! I looked at the package and it said XD(m). OK, tool on back and exchange them. The gunsmith was very apologetic and looked into the computer. He said they did have three and looked for them on the rack. He couldn't find them so he turned around to the shelf and found the magazines. XD .40 subcompact 10 round. Oh happy day!

    I returned home and they fit. Great! started loading them up and couldn't get 7 rounds in them. WTF? Looked them over and the baseplate said 9mm! The packaging says 40 cal S&W, the mags were 9mm.

    Returning to the gun store I left with a gift card because guess what, no mags.

    The mags are tight until you load them up a few times. Load them full (with a loader if you need to), and leave them a few days. Keep doing this until they loosen up a little...

    They hold what they show

    ^ Absolutely true. 1 of my 4 mags was super tight on the last couple of rounds, almost always needed to use the speed loader. After letting them sit for a week or so (fully loaded), they all feel about the same, and are pretty easy to load. But at the range I still like the speed loader.

    This website makes my point clear. Look at the top of the picture where it says 9rd.
    http://www.impactguns.com/springfield-xd-40sw-subcompact-magazine-9rd-xd1940-706397854706.aspx

    Now look at the bottom description where it says 10 rd.



    If it is 9rd SAY SO! If it is 10rd, SAY SO! No more confusion!

    Springfield XD 40SW Subcompact Magazine, 9rd
    MANUFACTURER NO: XD1940

    If I'm not mistaken these magazines fit both the XD sub 9mm and 40S&W.
    That is why you get multiple answers for the number it will hold.
    Just depends on the caliber as to how many it will hold.
    #1940 is the 9 round(which I believe is the 0940 with a different flush base)
    #0932 is the 12 round with the sleeve(which I believe is the 5011 with the extension)
    you can also buy the extension seperately.
    No worries. Springfield seems to spend alot of time making things that don't require massive retooling for similar products, and that means sustainable supply and long term accessibility.

    Get a UpLua speed loader. Cheaper and smell better than a Russian weightlifter.

    I found the same issue of spring tension the first time I "tried" to load the mags for my XD9SC. Was only able to get 13 in the 16 round mag and 10 in the 13 round mag. I loaded them as full as I could and let them sit. Over time I was able to load to max capacity.

    I always use a speed loader, faster, easy! tame the spring down with full loads loaded with a speed loader. I always am looking for some new tool when shoping for ammo and I think a good quality speed loader is the best
    tool out there for your ammo box.

    Agree 1000%.

    I use an Uplula to load my 13 round 45 ACP XD(m) magazines, and even my 5 and 7 round XDS magazines. Yeah, I can load either of them to full capacity without the UpLula, if I work at it a little, but WHY fight them?

    The Uplula loader makes it SO easy to load any of them to full capacity.
