So I just picked up this gun (Elite) to replace an XDM I left my ex-wife (mistake I know, should have given her another gun) and was disappointed to find out the salesman lied or was ignorant that I could use the old mags in the new gun. After searching, including this forum I found I could not. However, a YouTube search yielded a mag conversion kit. The vid had an eBay link and I ordered 4 of the new magazine plates. I just swapped them out in about a minute a piece. Now I have 4 more mags for my new XDM Elite 9mm.
