Good luck. Please keep us informed.

Welcome, I have no experience with the XD but I do have experience with Springfield. They will make it right! If you have any problems let me know, I have the name of a factory representative, who has treated me great.

Seriously, this would be my suggestion. There are a few out there that are quite small and come in the 9mm flavor, if you're worried about firing a .45

Thank you to all of you that were gracious enough to extend help in my time of need. I was the victim of my own lack of knowledge regarding firearms.
I had relied upon the "expertise" of a store owner who had but one interest, and that was NOT in providing me the best product for the intended use.
Prior to going back to the dealer and discussing possible remedies,I went down to the U.S.M.C. recruiting center to ask about firearms. Not only did they explain,in graphic detail,most anything that I could imagine knowing about firearms but there was a sergeant that accompanied me to the dealers store to ensure that I received the proper info. and expertise .
Needless to say,the dealer was very much more ready to negotiate and settle this dispute when confronted with 1) not getting paid and 2) being
presented with a customer that could not be B.S.ed about weapons.
Below is the weapon that I accepted in place of the defective XD; I have had it at the range and after about 500 rounds fired without a hiccup,Iam
convinced that I finally have a weapon worthy of CCW.
Thank you again to all that responded to my plea for help,and God bless the U.S.M.C. !

Not everyone wants to carry the 1911. I have several of them, everything Colt's, Springfield's, Kimber's and Wilson's. After awhile I started carrying a Sig P229, then I found the XD. Have never had a problem with any of the weapons I have carried.
