Default Mixed reviews on Springfield XD-s 45

I'm hearing mixed reviews on the new XD-s 45. Some people are saying it is the next big thing for a CC, others are having a lot of trouble with feeding and reliability. Does anyone have any real experience with the firearm. Any info would be great. Thanks. Joey D

Not sure what you're saying 'next big thing'. XD's have been out for many many years. I have an XDm Compact and so far it's been a very reliable pistol.

Maybe he means the XDS, the slim compact models? http://xdspistol.com/


I have the old XD45 and am very happy with it; we will be sending out Christmas Cards with the cats.

I have the new XDS and mine is a keeper. About 400 rounds thru it with no problems. It rides is a new High Country holster from R Grizzle Leather. It goes almost everywhere with me now. Comfortable, easy to conceal, fun to shoot, and a keeper in my book.

I had an XD 40 which I gave to my sister in law. As far as reliability goes, it was pretty good, though it didn't like lead rounds at all.

thank you for the input Hollander. I hear that the XDs is small enough to fit in your front pocket? what kind of ammo have you been shooting?

thanks again,

Joey

You should offer a up post stating your correction...and not by editing the OP. It makes for confused reading.

I have fired approx 700 rounds mixed hardball, Remington JHP & Hornaday Critical Defense. No failure to feed or eject. Very accurate it is now my primary cc.
