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 XD45 magazine is a Springfield Armory factory-produced magazine for the Springfield Armory XD45 line of pistols. The magazine is designed to hold 13 rounds of .45 ACP 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 XD45 or XDM 45 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 XD45 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.

Setting up for uspsa left me in need of a few more mags. KS had them in stock at a price within pennies of other pages, add in the great customer service and a winning combo. Ordered Friday morning around 10:30 - had them in hand Monday morning. Brand new factory mags, what else is there to say?
As said above I love my XD45 it, like my Springfield 1911 Widebody are just excellent guns and with 13 rounds of .45acp in the grip there are not many critters I worry about having to change magazines to stop!
The only problem I have ever had with my factory XD mags is when I tried to run cheap Wolf Classic steel cased ammo through it.
For some reason the gun fires a few rounds then the rounds towards the bottom of the mag get jammed in the side by side position stopping the spring from feeding the gun.
It's a simple problem to correct, simply turn the mag over and dump out the remaining rounds that are now just sitting there without any spring pressure on them, after dumping loose rounds out you will see the 2 rounds that are stuck towards the bottom of the mag, take a pencil and push down on the lower round and be ready as the spring will fling the remaining 4 to 6 rounds out with force!
I have only had this problem when shooting Wolf steel cased ammo. I have fired many other brands of brass cased ammo including hand loads and never had any problem at all.
Simple solution, use brass cased ammo!
Overall I love this gun so much that when I bought it, it came with the holster, mag pouch and loader but only 2 mags.
Well I make it a point to always have at least 5 mags for all my handguns so I bought a few more of these back when they were still reasonable, if KS gets these back in stock at this price I will gladly buy up to 5 more as you can never have to many mags for a gun you love as much as I do this one.
Definitely a mag I would love to have another five of just for good luck! Just avoid loading this mag full with steel cased ammo!
KS has done it again, with the factory magazines on ebay going for 45 dollars I had to snatch up the latest KS
