Nice. I'll have to pick it up. I like my Nano, but 1 more round per magazine and a grip safety are things I like, too.

It looked like it didn't lock back after the final round of both mags.
(I'm really interested in one as well.)

YAY!! It's finally here!!! :)
It locked back after his first mag, but not the second.
Another video the guy has the same no lock back issue, first mag was fine - second didn't lock back.
Nice little number, I'll keep my .45 XD-S but this is definitely a welcome offering from Springfield.
About time... and it meets the 7 rd limit for NY now... stupid state legislators... Looking to compare this with the Shield in 9...

Hmmmm. I wonder if someone has done a head on comparison to the Shield?
Soooooooooooooo where can you get one?
Now if Glock would just follow suit.
Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.
According to this review - it will be avail end of Q1, start of Q2 - so I guess in a few months... It goes on to say:
Compared head to head with the Shield, the XDs wins in the trigger category and the controls category. Everything’s a bit bigger and easier to manipulate on the XDs. The trigger is like all XD triggers, fairly nice and easy to shoot out of the box. To be fair to the Shield, S&W did design it with the maximum thinness in mind, which made certain decisions about the controls inevitable.
