I finally arrived at the perfect 3.3XDs45 magazine solution for me:

Good


Better


BEST


The ground-down Pearce extension is just right for me. :)

Very nice!! What did you cut the pinkie extension with? Also, what rubber grip is that?
Thanks! I used the rough wheel on my grinder to remove the bulk of the material and then cleaned it up with some sandpaper.

The rubber grip cover is a piece of bicycle inner tube.

That little bit you took off seems to be what prints on me the most.

I have done the same with my XDs but I took off only half of what you did and it hides much better but also gives me much better control when shooting it.

Sounds like you may have larger-diameter fingers than I do.

I did 2 of mine (so far) and the other one has a little bit more taken off which I have found represents the minimum for my hands.

When I do the mod to the rest of my Pearces, I will take off the amount of the one in my pic.

I might be able to take maybe 1/8" more but like it the way I have it now. Basically I took off the lip that flares out and down. I shortened it by over a 1/4" or more just by taking the lip off. I did this with both of my XDs carry mags and my XDsc carry mag. I then put grip the tape on them to match the texture on my guns since I run rubber texture grip tape.

That looks very good! I may have to grab an extra and see what I can do.

Sorry guys, I say this is the best - a 6 rounder.

I agree and I like the fact that you get a compact grip and plus one to go along with it. Here is my XDs and how I modified my Pierce.
