Springfield XDS Coming Soon
 
What are some of the things you are looking forward to seeing from the XDS that the other models don't offer? What are some of the negatives you have heard or seen?

to me its a swing and a huge miss. solely because of the capacity. if colt can manage to squeeze 7 into a small defender/newagent mag, and colt isnt big on new ideas, surely springfield could have spent a few more minutes in the think tank to do a 7+1...

holds less than a revolver, total miss

Me too on the low round count. But I wonder if the width of the slide and grip make it easier to conceal. :confused:

I bought an XDm 3.8 Compact a couple months ago, so not in the market for a smaller gun. I am considering getting a full frame size 45 for home defense, but probably going with XDm 5.25 45acp. I like XD style and like SA customer service so far. Don't know what they were thinking in reducing the round count.

Disagree. Holds 5+1 for 6 rounds. Just like a revolver. Pearce grip is making one round extensions for the mags, making it 6+1 for total of 7. The idea is for a very compact, easy to conceal firearm in .45acp. I ordered one today. For those complaining about round count, it's a matter of simple physics. You can only shrink the gun so far. They've got it about as small as it can possibly be. Can't wait to get it. :)

I like the idea of a pocket pistol in .45 acp rather than the typical .380
And it can always be a back up gun to your normal carry gun. Sounds like a summertime swim trunks gun.

I think Springfield did a good job at getting a new model of the XD platform. Most 1911 have the same round capability. I will do some research and see what the buzz is all about. So far I'm interested on the XDS. Don't knock it unroll you try it.

It looks like it would be a nice C/C gun but we can't carry in Canada so I would sooner pick up a regular sized pistol for my shooting pleasure.

Pretty good chance I'll plunk the money down and put one through its paces in the next few weeks. My dealer is calling me when they come in.

6 rounds in the gun, 5 more in a spare mag oughta give me a fighting chance of getting back to the XDm45 in my truck, lol.

I would be very interested in hearing what you have to say once you test it. Hopefully I will be picking one up soon as well. I just hope it doesn't kick like horse being a smaller single stack.
