Browsing through the store section of the Springfield Armory website I can only surmise the paradigm of the designers when it came to XD and XD(M) accessories:
We only design stuff that either has a picatinny rail on it, or it attaches to a picatinny rail… NO EXCEPTIONS
Feast your eyes on this:
Your initial thought is probably “So what Mike? It’s a mag loader… I don’t get the big deal”
Well… the big deal is that on the left side of picture above that curved section is designed to mate to a picatinny rail.
“So what?! I still don’t get it” you say… “I can attach it to my picatinny railed XD holster or my picatinny railed XD mag pouch or to my picatinny railed case the gun came with” (shown below)
Well your right.. you could do that.
But since your gun has one of these rails as well, you could also do THIS:
Nothing quite like doing tactical reload with a loaded gun, and putting your entire hand right in front of the barrel.
It’s not a question of if someone will actually do this and shoot themselves in the hand … It’s a question of WHEN is it going to happen?
