If you're talking about extended mags like the 16 rd mag that comes with the XDm.40 Compact, I like them, as well as the flush mag if it has a Pearce Grip Extension. If you're talking about extended mags like the guy used on his Glock in the Arizona shooting, I think they look retarded.
It works great. feels great and feeds great.
It also has a very small but noticeably bigger lip on the front bottom, that makes the fit real nice in the hand.
I like the better than the OEM XD,s Shop around, there are some great deals to be had.
For me, it's not so much about looks, but form and function. The flush mag or a flush mag with a pinky extension is much easier to conceal than a full length mag. For me, the gun seems to balance better with the less "butt weight" of a short mag.
I carry an XD9SC with a flush 13 round mag and a Pearce pinky extension.
