I looked but couldn't find a thread that discusses this and I just started having this problem. I recently replaced the mag base on my XD 45 tac and the mag will not seat properly. Do I need to sand a little bit of the base plate down? Anyone else had this problem?

I put a magwell on, and an extended mag base gives me a little bit of a grip to rip it out if need be. I tried it with the slide forward and back, you can tell its just a hair from locking in. It just doesn't want to lock in. The way i see it, it shouldn't matter if it was forward or locked to the rear. It should seat properly and lock in.

Probably the pad. My buddy shoots a xd tac in40 with a mag well, he had to reshape the base pads to fit. Check the width of the mag well if shooting in IDPA, his needed about 1/32" off each side to meet the box measurements.
