I agree they should have increased the magazine capacity. In fact, that's what the public was expecting!
Oh well. Still looks great.
Realistically speaking would you really want to hump a 15 +1 .45 ACP on your hip all day; plus maybe 2 extra mags at 15 rounds each. Although on paper adding capacity to the XD 45 looks like a good idea, I have never seen the appeal. In my opinion I don't see how SA is going to market this gun unless they use it to replace the full size XD 45 and use the Compact as the flagship of that model line. There just does not seem, to me anyway, to be enough incremental change over the existing XD to make the new XDm worth the extra $100 or so. JMHO
