I guess I just don't get it. Only 5+1 and still weighs 29oz empty. Yea thin is good but again 5+1? Don't get me wrong, I like XD's. Have had a few and will again, but not this one.

It'd be nice to have one in 9mm. That weight, though, is a little puzzling

Listening to Tom Gressham's podcast interview w/Rob Latham I got the feeling that SA had intentions on a single stack 9mm but then realized engineering a 45 first made more sense. Now it'll be easy to fit it for .40 & 9mm. I'd bet money a 9mm isn't far off.

I read on xdtalk that Rob Leatham said the weight empty is actually 21oz. If true, that's a game changer for me. And you are right S&W needs to get on the ball and get a single stack 45 out before I end up with a XDs!!

21oz would be more in line with its size. Website says 29 though.

This has my attention for sure.



I'd be surprised if extended mags (a la Kahr) don't become available. SA already does this with the XD compacts.



The thin aspect of this is what I'm especially interested in. When I carry IWB, it's one of two pistols: a 1911 bobtail commander or an M&P 9c. The 1911 weighs more but is more comfortable to carry and conceals better simply because it's so thin.

Just to be a joy killer, I'd just as soon dig out my Colt Officer's model. The extra bit of weight is no biggie to me, but consider that it is coming from a person that carried a 1911 A1, and a 1911 Commander for years, and never gave the weight a second thought. I guess if you were LEO/Security...etc...where you have to ride around in a car all day, it could be a problem. Does that extra little bit of "thinness" make you want to toss your M&P compacts back in the safe? Another disclaimer: I actually don't really care for the Springers, but that's more subjective than objective. Just a matter of personal taste.

Well, using the same holster (MTAC), for me the 1911 is more comfortable IWB than the M&P. I attribute that to how thin it is.



Bulkiness is relative. Make your wallet a little fatter (or thinner) and you notice it, for example. (No, I'm not speaking figuratively.) Get an overdue haircut and all of a sudden your hat seems looser… etc.



This is my observation and opinion only, which is worth every penny you've paid for it.

I agree. That's why I don't put a case on my iPhone. One of its main features is its thinness. Just adding 1mm ruins it for me. It's a big difference.

I have carried one (XD-S .45) almost every day since they first came out. Best trigger pull & reset of any of my smaller guns. Decent front sight & easy to acquire. Shoots great groups at 20 yards (hands down above my Ruger & Kahr)

Not one jam EVER, cycles flawlessly.

Empty weight is fine but loaded weight felt a bit higher than I originally wanted. Turned out to be a real non issue.

I carry in a Super Tuck-- the balance of the XD-S seem perfect as no holster tilt or sagging. The XD-S hides under about anything I wear in the S-Tuck so it is a very comfortable rig to carry every day.

I would say from just wearing it for many months now it carries every bit as comfortable as my Kahr PM-9 does with a bit more punch from the .45.

My only issue (if you could call it that) is the amount of fire that comes out of that short barrel at night. I would imagine that there are some short barrel special powder 45 rounds out there for the shorter .45 guns but I haven't gone out of my way to look for them.

For ccw I have a sw mp9c, xd40sc and a sw 38 642.
I just like to carry in my front pocket and the 642 fits
so nice . I forget I have it. mp9c is ok, both have pocket
holsters. xd40sc no, for me it needs a belt. I where cargo shorts
or pants, nice loose front pockets. xds I will have to hold one
and see !
