ALLCON,

Just picked up a XD LE 45 GAP this weekend and have not made it to the range.

Question: I read here that the magazine springs are tight at first, and difficult to load. For me though, it seems like I need to force the (Full) 9 rd mag into the pistol to get it to seat. The mag with 8 rds slids in and seeats as easily as the issue M9 I carried.

SA lists the 45 GAP capasity as 9+1.

Is this a tight mag or just operator headspace and timing?

Thanks

My 45 gap is the same............Mag doesn't want to seat easily with all 9 Rounds in the mag. Just part of the design from what I can tell........

Patton 55,

I just joined the forum and havn't seen many 45 GAP comments. I am reading the forum from old to new to get caught up.

Let me know when you fire it how it works out.

The springs are beyond extremely tight with the full 9 45gap rounds. Leave the mag loaded and it gets better with time.
