A couple of companies make a "grip plug" for Glocks that plugs the hole in the grip at the rear of the magazine.

Is there something similar for the SA XD?

Is there a reason for needing this?

I never even noticed the space on my XD.

If I'm not mistaken, the hole in the xd grip doesn't extend to the fire control parts like a glock does. Either way, I still don't think the plugs are necessary.

P.S. I did actually search for an xd grip plug so as to avoid being a complete wise guy, I didn't find any xd grip plugs.

"Is there a reason for needing this?"

Other than "cosmetic appearance", I don't know of any.

Maybe the question should be:

Why is the hole there in the first place?:scrutiny:

Does Hubba Bubba come in black (licorice)? ;)

The "hole" is there for a purpose, at least on Glocks.

It allows water and debris to drain / fall out of the action lock-work through the smaller hole in the top of the opening in the grip.

Of course, some would argue it also allows water & debris to fall into the action.

But if those types of guns needed a plug, Gaston Glock would have put one there in the first place. Glock Perfection and all, don't cha know!

I'd leave it open as designed..
