The Patriot Magwell by PistolGear was designed to make reloads both quicker and smoother. Unlike the Patriot’s big brothers, the Operator and the UnLimited, the Patriot was not made for competitive shooters (although a viable option for gamers) but for Law Enforcement and Concealed Carry permit holders.
The funnel on the Patriot magwell opens the frame up by nearly 40%, giving you a bigger hole to hit during a reload. Under stress, you need all the help you can get.
The front of the Patriot magwell is open. Because the base of the magazine sits just below flush of the magwell, the open front will allow you to extract the magazine from the firearm manually by hand in the event your magazine gets jammed and will not drop free.
Installation of the Patriot magwell is simple. You need only drive out the backstrap pin of your XDm, install the Patriot magwell, and use the threaded pin that is supplied with the magwell to secure the magwell to your frame.
The Patriot Magwell include the magwell, a threaded pin and hex key. The magwell was designed to work with the #2 grip insert (medium) but can work with the other grip inserts as well. If you use the 3# insert (large), you will need to remove some material from the grip insert – not the magwell.
We recommend that you blend your frame to the magwell in order to have the smoothest transition possible. Blending is best done with the use of a Dremel tool. Go slow with the Dremel – use at your own risk!
When used with the XD-M Elite model, you will require the use of the standard XD-M backstrap found here.
Finish: Hard Anodize
