Hi all. I just went out and bought a 4" XD service model. I shot my friends XD and loved it so I bought it!! Anyways, I chose the XD40 for the stopping power over the 9mm. I just ordered a barrel conversion kit to 9mm on pistol-gear.com(Cheaper ammo to go range shooting!). I was wondering if I needed a 9mm clip along with the barrel. I heard that the .40S&W works with 9mm..although I don't know how reliably..THank you.

jkswiss, the answer to your question is....depends. Some 40 magazines work reliably with 9mm, some require an adjustment to the feed lips to keep the 9mm from riding too high. I have used 40 mags without any problem, others haven't. You'll just have to give it a try and see if it works for you. Added bonus: the hi-cap 40 mags will hold 17 rounds of 9mm. :D

Thanks for the info Garyk. I'll have to give it a go as soon as I get the conversion barrel in the mail. Wouldn't mind having the extra round of ammo though so I hope it works!
