I'm sure I'm not the first to think of this, but I've searched for 'mag', 'magazine', and 'trim' and haven't found a post on this.

Awhile back, I was taking apart my XD-40 mags and noted the TALL follower (This is in 10 Rnd mags distributed during the klintoon ban). Holding the spring to keep just a bit of pressure on the loaded rounds, I put 8, 9, 10 in and noted I still had a bit of space. When inserting the 11'th rnd, the "tail" (for lack of a better term) of the follower passed the end of the magazie tube.

It apears that if one would trim a bit (less than 1/4'') off this tail (then file/ reshape it round) this would be an easy +1 for our mags.

Anyone try it yet :?:

I found that with the conversion barrel 40 to 9mm the 10rd 40 mags are 13rd 9mm mags. and the 12rd mags are 16rd 9mm mags. in case you didn't already know. Feed just fine too.
