    29 oz is a brick for a single stack anything. My XD 45 Compact weighs just a tad more than that....and I agree. Great gun.
    A 20oz XD single stack anything would be on my short list because I shoot them really well, mushy trigger and all. I'm disappointed that Springfield couldn't find a way to bring us a more "carry friendly" pistol for those of us that live in the tropics and don't wear a lot of clothes. During Florida summers, less is definitely more. Just ain't a whole lot of places to hide a gun when you're wearing a t-shirt, bathing suit, and flip-flops.

    So, how much does a compact 1911 weigh in at? I hear lots of complaints about weight. Perhaps it weighs what it does to absorb some recoil. Personally, this gun doesn't look tiny, to me. I see it's merits as a thin version of an XD - not a pocket mouse gun.

    I dont know if i like it or not yet. Mainly because it only holds 6 rounds! Better off getting a wheel gun 357 mag snubby that holds 7. With that being said im a huge XD fan i just think the XD subcompact would be better.

    The Colt New Agent weighs in at 24 ounces(empty) and carries 2 more rounds.

    It's also smaller in all dimensions.

    I'll take 6 rounds of .45 over 7 rounds of .380 any day of the week. I've never heard people complaining about the LCP's low capacity. Take your pic, a wide double stack or a thin single stack, it's called a trade-off and an individual choice.

    serious carriers snivel at 1/10" extra width or 2 or 3 oz in weight. May make the difference whether you can carry the gun all day or it becomes a safe queen. Newbies always think they can 24/7 carry a 60oz Desert Eagle.....and I just nod my head and grin. Yeah, sure. Check back with me next month and let me know how its goin' for ya.

    I usually don't have a problem carrying my XD service model. Ninety-five percent of the time, it is fine. Sometimes, depending on attire, I could use a smaller carry piece.

    Also, I just thought about the features of this gun. Since it is in the XD line, does that mean this gun isn't losing any?
    (from the images, I can see that it has some of these)
    Ambidextrous mag release
    Round in chamber indicator
    striker indicator
    trigger safety
    drop safety
    grip safety
    same style take-down (with or without trigger pull)
    ect.

    While I like this new XD and will work well for many, I don't see myself trading my XD sub Compact 9mm or XD .45 compact for it.

    The little extra comfort / conceal-ability doesn't out weigh the advantage of the extra rounds my current XD's have.
