Magazine Disassembly

Magazines do not normally need to be disassembled for cleaning. Disassembling and cleaning magazines every 3-4 months is normally sufficient, unless the magazines have been exposed to dirt or other adverse conditions or inspection indicates a need for cleaning. Disassembly of the XD magazine is accomplished by depressing the magazine locking plate and sliding the floor plate forward. (See page 27 for parts nomenclature.)


The magazine spring, follower, and inner floor plate are under spring tension, and can cause eye or other injury if not controlled during removal. Wear protective safety glasses to reduce the risk of eye injuries. Be sure to maintain downward pressure on the magazine spring, with your thumb, while disassembling.
