Xd9 ProMag 20rd magazines

Looking at adding a few more magazines for my xd9 before the Colorado ban passes/takes effect. I found these ProMag 20 rounders, anyone have one? Hows it working out? Seen bad reviews for a 30 rounder so its out, curious about the 20 rounder, hows it feed? Holding up?

Thanks in advanced. Might just get three more 16 rounders from xd.

Never had a ProMag that worked well. Mec-Gar mags are good to go and they have 18 rounders for the XD9. Otherwise factory 16 rounders.

Thanks Dave, those look hard to find in stock. Might just order a few facrtory mags as those are soon to be banned as well.

Well, ended up finding arredondo extended base pads, website I ordered from says I can get an extra 5 rounds out of it, but some reviews say only 4. Will still get me to the 20 round goal. If they look good and hold up to a few range days, might order a few more with some more factory magazines.

ProMags are range mags at best. I would not trust 'em with lives.

Promags are excellent range mags, especially when you want to practice failure drills.

Nor have I.

Mec-Gar have always been fine in my experience.

Well ended up getting the Arredondo Extended Base Pads from Powder River Precision. 21+1. Base pad is one piece and slides on, came with a new spring.



Here's the link to where I got them. Will see how they do at the range very soon.
