Some of the promo packages came with for the sub came with a 15 rd with a sleeve on the mag.BigGun97B said:If you are getting a 15 round magazine for a SubCompact it's going to be a regular length mag like the ones for the Service and Tactical. The only shorty mags from SA that fit the Subcompact will hold 10 9's and 9 .40's. I called them and asked if they were going to make any higher round mags for the Sub's and I got a "No".
Called Debbie and the order was split due to not having the sub 15 round Magazine for the sub.She said I should have it in about two weeks.blackpanther said:Got my promo holster to day but not the magazine for the XD sub. The printed invoice shows QTY ORD 1 and she inked in -1.So I guess, hope I get the 15 round mag for the sub later.
I saw one at a gun show in Houston last weekend. It was a package deal, and they would not sell me just the mag with X-tension. With the extended mag in the SC, it feels just like a service or tactical grip. I have the Pearce grip extensions on my mags which greatly improves feel over the factory SC grip/mags, but the back-strap is still a bit shorter than the service/tactical. The X-tensions fix that.BigGun97B said:I just got the Springfield Armory 2005 catalog and the XD catalog today. In the XD catalog they show the new style mag for the SubCompact. They are XD-Gear X-Tension sleeves. These things are great looking. It's a full size mag (9mm-15 round, .40-12 round) with a cool base that fits right into the base of the pistol and makes it look like a 3" barrelled Service.
