    Springfield Armory XD45 compact range report

    I am another satified XD45c owner.

    I put 200 rounds through my XD with zero problems. The rounds were 150 rounds of Blazer Brass and 50 rounds of Remington JHP.

    The grip felt great. I was able to shoot with no problems with the 10 rd compact mag or the 13 round service mag.

    The recoil is mild to me and getting back on target was fast and easy.

    I kept the target of the first 100 rounds I shot. As you can see being left handed it shot to the right. Once I get used to the new grip that should get better.

    Here is how good it shoots at about 25 feet.

    That is great news. I just picked up a 45c as well and I'm looking forward to shooting it.

    I just picked up an XD 45 compact a couple of weeks ago. Great gun so far. I hope you enjoy yours.

    As soon as SA released the XD45C, I ordered one. It has been one of the best guns I have bought in years. I can't say enough good things about it.

    Haven't even received my XD9sc yet and already I'm wanting a XD45c!

    Good Shooting... looks like you dropped that target in his tracks.

    The XD45c seems to be stirring up dust lately. I just might have to look into getting one.

    Luv my XD45 Compact; conceals great, excellent time to target and 0 (zero) hiccups with 500+ rounds downrange.

    I just bought a XD45 compact almost two months ago. Since then I have put 400 rounds of blazer brass, 100 wwb, 20 cor-bon, 20 hornaday XTP's and 100 reloads from a Michigan company that I bought from a range in Michigan when I was shooting with my brother.

    I have had zero problems.

    I love this XD! My g/f even likes it.
