I bought my first Springfield Armory product last year because I was tired of buying Glocks, CZs, and Rugers..
and the price was right.
So far, I've shot my XD-S .45 more than a few times and found that it handles both 230 grain FMJ practice
ammo and my Double Tap +P ammo just fine.
Far better than the also light, but very wispy to shoot Glock 36 than I sold quickly.
The XD-S recoil spring system seems superior to Glock's for recoil control.
So, that said.
I have to tell you that@7 yards, 10 yards, or even 20 yards, the XD-S is super accurate, and
far more accurate than my new Glock 43.
One hole groups if I concentrate on the trigger.
Nothing else that I have will do that, and only my old CZ97B would shoot that good!
The Springfield holds as many rounds ( 5-6-7 shot mags) and throws a much bigger bullet.
That said, I'm now looking at buying a new XD-S (Bi-Tone) 4.0 in 9mm for winter carry, esp. with their
gear promotion going on.
Holster(s) would be no problem as I already have an IWB for my XD-S 3.3 that Should work for
the 4.0 bi-tone.
What are your thoughts?
