    Springfield has about a week to bring this thing to market before I buy the S&W Shield....

    I would love to see a head to head comparison with the Shield.

    Well, thought I'd weigh in with my XD experience. I have the XD9 Tactical and I used it primarily for USPSA competition so it didn't see a lot of slow fire. To date I have 18k+ rounds through it and the only problem was a broken trigger spring around 15k rounds. I change out recoil springs around 5-6k.

    Guns require maintenance and springs are gonna break. No big deal.

    I too am looking forward to see and touch the XDs.

    Yeah, I saw they corrected it. That makes a little more sense.

    Mine weighs 21. I think more like 20.9 unloaded.

    Truth about the weight and other pics.

    My XDs with Trijicon HD sights in orange.





    My XDs on the scale:
    Fully loaded 5+1 with SD loads. 3 Gold Dot 230gr and 3 Liberty Ammunition Halo Points.

    Completely empty XDs.


    My iPhone4 didn't capture the scale photos really well. Hopefully you guys can make out the readings, I will break them down below.

    Fully loaded: 1lb 9.2oz - 25.2oz
    Completely empty: 1lb 3.6oz - 19.6oz

    -Size comparisons of my current XD family-
    XDs .45ACP vs XDm .40S&W 3.8 Compact vs XDm .40S&W 4.5:

    XDs .45ACP vs XDm .40S&W 3.8 Compact:
    With these two images you can really see where the "slim" part comes into play.


    Another closer image of the XDs .45ACP vs XDm .40S&W 3.8 Compact:

    Never had a SA XD, but I might give it a try.
    This might be my next CCW.
