XGRIP Mag adapters

1911c1 | XGRIP

Has anyone used these with a 9mm Ultra CDP II with full size mags?
I know is says for .45 but I can't see why it wouldn't work on 9mm also.

I would love to be able to use a full size mag for range & home defence.

I use full size 8 round mags in my Ultra .45 at the range all the time, don't need any adapters. In fact my spare carry mags for my Ultra Tactical II are full size 8 rounders. There's no reason you can't do the same thing with a 9mm.

Agreed, I do the same thing as Chuck.

Cool.
I had heard that a full size mag could be pushed in too far and damage the ejector. I've never tried a full size mag in it so didn't know.
Thanks.

No, all the extra length hangs out the bottom, it doesn't get shoved up into the gun.

When loading with the slide locked back, if you slam the mag in you can jump the mag catch since the base plate is not there to
Stop over insertion. If the ejector leg overhangs so the mag can hit it then yes damage can occur.

That was basically exactly what I was told. I know I could prevent this at the range but wouldnít guarantee anything in a home defense situation. I think Iíll order a couple of these XGrips and see how they work
