I currently have an XDm 40 and an XDm 9mm Compact. The slides swap between the two frames perfectly. I am curious if anybody has tried swapping the XDm 45 slide or frame with an XDm 40 or 9mm slide or frame.

Not sure on the 45, but the 9 and 40 are mostly interchangeable

Look at the feedramp on the locking block, one will have one, one will not IIRC

That said, swap them and throw some rounds downrange, if no failures, your good to go.

Sorry, to clarify: I have swapped frames and slides on the 9mm and 40 and they fire perfectly. I have had no issues. The only question I have is if anybody knows if the 45 would swap frame and slide with the 9 and 40 pistols.

Ahhhh

That one I don't know, based on the XD line, I would say no, I don't think the mags would fit the frames.

My XD 45 slide slides on my XD 9mm compact frame but nothing lines up and mags don't work

Ill see if I can find the pic

The .45 is a longer cartridge won't work.
