    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:

    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..
