Hey guys...couple of questions,

I had an XD subcompact 9mm that I liked, except for the night sights and blue finish.

I plan on getting a fixed sights stainless subcompact but don't know if I want a .40 or 9mm.

My questions are as follows:

1.) I understand the subcompact .40 mags fit in the 9mm to add a couple of rounds, do they drop free? I did that with my XD9 4 inch model and the mags did not drop free whenever dropped fully loaded. Is the same true for the subs?

2.) Is there much difference in the recoil on the .40 vs. the 9mm. I would think it would be negligable due to the shortness of the barrel, the 9mm did have a good snap to it and if the .40 is considerably more, maybe I'd be better off with the 9mm.

Thanks for the replies.

If you already have a 9mm why not get your compact in 9mm also. You won't have to be concerned about mixing up your ammo and it is cheaper to shoot.

That's my plan. Rich is going to do his magic on my XD9 Service for compitition and I'll use the compact for CCW.
