Has anyone tried the Arredondo XDm .40 base pads on the 9mm? are the mags dimensionally the same? I called them and they didn't know, they haven't been able to get a 9mm mag yet.

Thanks

Those things are fugly, though. I personally wouldn't want that much extending downward past the bottom of the grip. That reminds me of those 30 round mags for Glock 18's that are like a foot long! :) Woof!

Got my Arredondo base pad and spring, installation, no problem. Slide it into gun, no problem. Fill it, only get 22 rounds, that's only 3 extra rounds. Do you need to trim the follower to get in the next 2? It sure doesn't look like enough room even I did that.

Skip I have been able to cram them in. It's hard to do but you should be able to do that. I would sugest NOT to trim your follower.

Thanks Dark, I've got a loaded mag loaded soaking to take some of the tension out of the spring, maybe that'll do it.
