Could you guys shed some light on this so I can make a good decision? Any experiences and reviews of the XDs are more than welcome. Thank you very much guys!

Just to clarify I'm talking about the XDs 3.3 45cal
I think a lot of the problems were "limp wrist" shooting.
I have had no problems with my XDS.

I can tell you from experience that the XDm strikers will light strike if they get oil in the firing pin. Had this happen on my 45. Clean and lubricate (extremely light coating almost dry) reassemble and problem solved. Known issue easily remedied. They also make stronger spring kits for the XDm not sure about the XDS.

Good to know. Thank you! I never put any lube in the firing pin area so that shouldn't be a problem. I just lightly put lube on the rails and the barrel is already lubed from cleaning...I use ballistol and like it.

I chose the bitone myself.
Hopefully you can run up on one soon, in the meantime.

Just looking for something slimmer to carry during summer. The G30 gets a bit bulky during that time if the year in lighter clothing so the XD-S fits the bill
You could also look at the Glock G36 single stack. It is thinner than the G30.
