I have a 80% 9mm lower that take Glock mags.

I was looking at the Glock mags and the 45 acp XD mags and the XD mag is slightly thicker than the glock mag. The XD mag is longer bc the 45acp bullets length.

It looks like the lower that I have has material at the back of the mag that can be removed to accommodate the longer XD mag. The side of the mag well can also be filed down as well.

Anyone try this yet?

I already have 45acp glock set up. If would be cool to have a rifle that can use the same mags as my XD(m).

With the availability and price of G21 mags...even with compatibility, I don’t think it would be worth it.

Agree. besides, even if you could make it fit, the lockup would be different.

Yes I realize that the mags are held differently.

But if I'm willing to file the magwell of as AR9, what makes you think I would not notch the XD mag to work with the Glock mag release?

So I can confirm that a 9mm Glock mag lower can be enlarged to fit a XD 45 mag. Also a XD 45 mag can have a Glock Mag notch cut into it and function fine.

Proof of life video will be posted when it's all done.
