Default XDs upgrades

What upgrades did you guys do to your XDs and has it affected reliability at all. I just got mine and am trying to think of what to do with it. Trigger, grips, sights, ect......

my XDS is one of the few I have left alone. the trigger is just about right for a carry weapon, the sights are good (even for an old fart like me), and it hides well. fits the nitch in my case.

Is there something your not happy with on it ? If not why waste the money. My xd sc has had the trigger reworked , my xds is is pretty close to it just a tad heavier pull . Mine is perfect . The only thing I did do was change out the front fiber to green, as I dont see red real well .

No one makes a trigger kit for it.

Why not spend a bunch of upgrade money on ammo and then start shooting the heck out of it at the range?

Why are you wanting to upgrade your XDs?
There are not many options for this already well made handgun.

I meant like better grip safety and just misc stuff. I would spend the money on ammo but can't find any for under 30.00/ box right now.

In all seriousness, shoot it for a while before you decide to change something. Because X said Y needed to be replaced, that doesn't mean it needs to be replaced for you nor does it even validate that X had a clue what they were talking about.

Go shoot it....find out how YOUR pistol works for YOU....then determine what, if anything, needs improvement.

I understand ammo is expensive. But....if you go spending your $$ on "upgrades" that may or may not be needed, you sure as heck won't have any $$ to buy ammo. The best thing you can do with a new firearm is to learn how to shoot it....after all, bullet placement is key to an effective defense.

I got a chance to shoot my buddies xds and I think it shoots like a dream, at least for such a small gun in such a large caliber. Give it some time at the range first before you start thinking about any upgrades, IMO.

The only change I recommend is to add Pearce grip extensions to the magazines, really like getting three fingers on the grip. Other than that, great gun that doesn't need anything more to do what it was intended to do.
