Default XDS Arrived

The new XDS 45 ACP just showed up via Fedex on Friday. Looking forward to taking it out to the range on Sunday. A good friend of mine has one for CCW and he advised it is a fine pistol. We will see but looks great! I will send a range report to follow as soon as I get it. Here are a couple of pics. One with the extended magazine.

Congrats on your new gun. Please detail strip it, clean it and lube it very wet for your first time out. Lots of guys fail to realize that a small semi auto such as the XDs has to work twice as hard as full size guns to accomplish the same task. A new gun is very tight and will need breaking in and running it wet will help. Let us know how your range day went

Thanks. Celebrating its 15th year. Several years back, I decided I should add some firearms content to the site since Jeep and guns typically go really well together.

+1 on the Pearce pinky extensions. Make a world of difference.


Also, if you have trouble getting the first round to feed don't get too frustrated. Watch this YouTube video and this is most likely what the issue is:

Enjoy your new XDS .45! I love mine for sure.
