My Google fu is weak this morning. Anyone got a source for replacement mag springs for XDM's? I couldn't even find them on the springfield sight. I need one for the 11 rnd compact mag and 3 for the full size 16 rnd mags. Thanks.

Why ?
Did you stretch the original and ruin it ?

I only have 1 11 rnd mag, and it stays loaded most of the time. I generally replace mag springs every couple of years on a carry gun. Springs are cheap, and pretty important to the function of most semi auto pistols. I once bought a 1911 from a guy who always kept it loaded. The mag spring was so bad it wouldn't even push the last round to the top of the mag.

Springs wear out from repeated compression and release, not from remaining compressed. ALL my XDm45 mags are fully loaded and so are all my 1911 mags as well as most of my AK and M14 mags.

The XD45 feeding issues were sometimes addressed with heavier springs, which did not really solve the problem. The XDm45 has no such issues and neither do the other calibers.
