    Have one and like it. No issues. Recoil is lighter then expected.

    I have one. It's awesome. Love it.

    It's not a range gun, though. I'm glad. It shouldn't be. This is the ultimate in concealability, fire power, and quality. Get a .22 pistol if you want a range gun.

    That being said, Springfield now makes an extended mag, which will hold more rounds and give you an extra finger on the grip. Should help at the range for extended practice, or using as a night stand gun, extra carry mag, or whatever. In other words, it's pretty versatile with that extended mag.

    I had to drive an hour north of me Firearms, Rifles, Shotguns, Handguns, Lomira, Fox Valley, Milwaukee WI, Firearms Milwaulkee $509.00 I believe they will do over the phone sales and ship also?
    I was able to find them elsewhere online, but from what I'm seeing they were running anywhere from 575.00 to 675.00 which I thought was a bit out of line.
    Hope that helps.

    I made the mistake of buying one too fast,mine is in route back to the MFG for light primer strikes and failure to battery
    After mine dissapointed me I searched the web and found out I am not alone there is quite a few going through light primer strikes,called my LGS and asked him what he thought
    and he said of the 6 he sold mine and one more were faulty...... :(
    I will NEVER buy a new model again till after the bugs are worked out...

    I paid 529.00

    I bought one last week and currently have 200 rounds through it. I have only had 1 light strike and none of the other reported issues on the XD forum. :thumbup:

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed because this will be my CC weapon of choice due to its size, caliber, and accuracy at 10 meters.

    Good willpower ..... it will pay off waiting. I got one withen 2 weeks of them coming out. It was one of the first 2 the LGS got in. I had seen what they were selling for online ($600+) and made up my mind id wait a year if I had to for prices to drop. But, walked into the LGS to pick up a XDM I ordered and they had just put out a XDS with a price tag of $499. So it went home with me.

    You can check your striker for this issue.
