I recently bought an XDM 40 S&W. Was loading a mag today & noticed that you can attach the mag loader to the rail on the bottom of the frame. Why would one want to do that? Nothing mentioned in the Owner's Manual. I have the flashlight holder for a 1" flashlight. Is there something made to slip into the mag holder while it's on the rail? :?:

I have no idea why it was designed to do that. Unless you wanted to make sure you didn't loose it. Kinna silly hu?? :confused:

Oh!....BTW, Welcome to the forum.

I attach mine to the holster not the gun. Just helps me keep everything together, and gives me a better hold on the mag loader.

Oh yeah, I forgot too. Welcome to the forum!

Now i feel like Danny Dipshxx. Never even took the mag carrier out of the case, as I doubt if I'll ever use it. Makes sense now. Thanks for the help. Have yet to even fire the damn thing.
:rolleyes:
By the way, I did read the owner's manual front to back. It makes no mention of the magloader at all. Nor does it have a picture of it, the mag carrier, or the holster.

My first post here. Hello all!

If I may share a mod I have done?

I was recently involved in a 4 day handgun training course, and was constantly needing to load mags. Also was in need of an additional mag holder. I noticed the mag loader can only be attached facing down. I needed that to change. So back at the hotel room, I plotted out the removal of the extended lip on the mag loader's bottom end. I made it fit flush against the mag holster rail, and was perfectly able to fit it securely upside down. Now I have a 3 mag holster, and it actually loads while attached. quite easy I may add. I kept feeding rounds into it from the now bottom side by pressing with my thumb only and inserting a round. very quick, handy, and free!
I was the fastest mag re-loader on the line for 3 of the 4 days.



Recap:
Cut lip off of mag loader just enough to touch the rail.

Attach the mag loader upside down to the front rail of the support side mag holster.

Insert magazine just like the mag holster, and load away without removing the magazine! You can load them while holstered. Push down on the mag and load from the bottom. Just rotate the empty or partial mags to refill them as needed.

Save your thumbs!
Hope this helps.

Thx Guys.

Glad you like it. Super handy and on the cheap. Just means more $ for ammo!

To me, the loader doesn't seem worth the trouble to use.
The XD loader is very simple to use, and it really helps to get those last 2 or 3 rounds in the mag. Don't discount it's usfulness.
