Anybody know of a speedloader that will work for the XD40. I just got my XD last Friday and have shot 350rds. Im fairly new to handgunning, so I guess I don't know any different, but it seems like it is extemely difficult to load the 11th and 12th rd into the mag. Go ahead and let it rip about me being a weenie, but if anybody has any suggestions please tell me.

The HKS Speedloader model 941 with slight modification works great for me. It works without modifing it but if you get rid of the extra stop near the bottow were it hooks the bottom of the magazine it works even betters.

Another thing that will help is load your magazines full and leave them like that a few days and they will losen up just a little bit. Using them will help them losen up even faster.

No reason to call you a wienie, when I'm working with new mags, it hurts like hell to do it bare handed the first time.

My suggestion is a ProMag loader (only thing the company makes that is worth a damn).

Link to Cabelas
$2.99 + about $3 shipping.
Could check your local gunshop - they usually run $5-6 there.

Another vote for the slightly modified HKS 941 Magazine Speedloader. The magazine base pad of the XD magazine is thicker than most. Just carefully cut out the next to the last base pad stop at the bottom of the speedloader with a sharp hobby knife. The plastic is soft enough to cut rather easily. Mine looks like it was made that way now. Works great.

It not only saves the fingers but also saves some time. No shame in using a speedloader!

After reading this post I went and bought the HKS Speedloader model 941. It works great even without the adjustment. The adjustment will make it even better but isn't needed.
