The Horiztonal MagHolder for Springfield XD and XD(m)pistols in 9MM and 40SW calibers allows the magazine to be retained by a secure friction fit. The magazine is retained in similar fashion to a traditional leather mag pouch, but with the close to the body fit and durability that MagHolder is famous for. Configurable options include Left or Right orientation, referring to which hand you will use to grab your spare magazine. Typically, the shooter reaches for their spare mag with the support hand, sweeping it out of the MagHolder either to the rear from the weak side, or from across the front midline in a crossdraw motion. Both positions are extremely fast but the crossdraw position allows access to the magazine from a sitting position, such as in a vehicle or theater seat.
Left Hip – Right Hand Cross Draw
When you receive your XDS MagHolder, expect the fit of your magazine to be quite snug to start. This is normal and will allow for the few 1/1000″ that the reinforced nylon relaxes during the first few days of use. After a few days, the MagHolder should retain the magazine securely, but still allow the quick access for which MagHolders are known.
Pro tip: if your MagHolder is bugging the daylights out of you and you want to speed up this process, drop it into a pot of boiling water for a minute or so. When you remove it, insert your magazine into the still-hot MagHolder and allow to cool completely. This will make the Magazine fit more quickly.
