In 2002, Springfield Armory brought the XD line of pistols to the United States market. They quickly rose through the ranks, surpassing other polymer pistols in terms of performance, safety and reliability. Their factory-standard, two-stage trigger offers shooters the ability to place tight groups on any target with ease. Each pistol also boasts practical features such as the loaded-chamber indicator and the striker-status indicator, which provide the shooter with visual and tactile confirmations as to whether the pistol is loaded and cocked. These are joined by a grip safety, the ultra-safety assurance (USA) trigger, a drop safety and an out-of-battery safety that place the pistol at the top of its class in all of the areas that matter most. Of course, the experience is lost without a magazine to feed the pistol.
As noted, the Springfield Armory XD40 magazine is a Springfield Armory factory-produced magazine for the Springfield Armory XD40 line of pistols. The magazine is designed to hold 12 rounds of .40 S&W ammunition. Its steel body features a stainless finish that guards against rust and other corrosion, placing it far beyond the aftermarket competition. As one would expect, this magazine benefits from the performance and reliability that one would expect from any Springfield Armory factory product and will fit and function in any Springfield Armory XD40 pistol. The magazine also comes with a flush-fitting floor plate provided it is used in the full-sized model.
Generally speaking, it is beneficial to seek out original factory magazines like the Springfield Armory XD40 magazine for your firearms. Original factory magazines are manufactured by the same company, to the exact same specifications and tolerances as those that ship with the pistols for which they are designed. They are also made from the same materials, which ensures both fit and function in your firearm.
