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

Anyone have or seen this new gun? Whats your opinions? How does it handle on the range?? I saw this gun at the NRA show here in St. Louis few months ago however cannot find anywhere to purchase or even look at again.. Thanks for your input!
thanks Sid1, good info... where did you find? Can't find anywhere...
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.
lots of good vids on you tube on the XDs,check out Hickok45's review..
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 have one also.... a XS501*** ...600 rds thru it so far with no problems.
Ck here on Grabagun for a XD-S .... they are getting them in quite regularly and no overly high price like some of the people on GB are trying to get for theirs ........ $532 + $6 shipping

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
XDs issue already...
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.
