    I just received a 9mm XDs 3.3" and it's so new that I haven't had a chance to take it to the range yet (this Friday). I have noticed that the mag does not release as easily as I believe it should. The release button is somewhat hard to push, but I don't know if the mag isn't releasing because of a "defect" or maybe because given the small size of the grip, perhaps my hand is interfering with the release.
    Has anyone had issues with the mag release? Is it a common problem with this gun, or is it me?
    thanks!

    It's you. Mag will release easier the more you use it.
    Try releasing and putting it back in about 50 times.

    Might improve with use

    I had a very tight mag drop on my Mod2. It was fine within 250 rounds. Might take more than 250 with a 9mm because the mags probably hold more than my .45 mags, which would result in fewer mag changes.

    If it does not loosen up, I'd post here again and ask some of the wise ones about using a drop of oil, but I'd ask a wise one first since oil and ammo don't mix.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the great info. I'm glad to know that it's not a defect.
