    As of last week, my distributors told me they aren't in production yet, and Springfield hasn't given any expected date for first production runs. There were two prototypes made. One was left at Springfield for photos, etc., the other was sent out to gun writers for review. When we were reading the magazine articles, they were still actually making design modifications. I could sell a dozen of these today, if I could get them. Hurry up and wait. Looks like a neat little pistol, though.

    Xds ??

    I realize this is a fairly old thread, but I have handled them and they feel amazing in my hands. They are slightly slimmer then a 1911 and offers a very firm grip. A friend has one and he swears by it, but honestly I swear by Spingfields. I love many guns for what they are intended. But when I'm looking I always study the Springfields.

    I've had mine for a couple months. It shoots to POA, feeds at least 3 different brands of ammo, and hand loads, and is more pleasant to shoot than you might think. I took my Kahr K-40, last time, to compare it with, and I actually prefer the XDs.

    I would recommend it to anyone who shoots a sub-compact well, and doesn't mind just having 6 rounds.

    xds 45

    Yes, I have one. It has some snap but it is controllable. You will love it, I shot different loads and it fed all of them without any issues.

    Love the XDS yes with some 230 ball in it it does have some snap but nothing like you would think for a gun it's size. Try some 185 or 200 in it and it is a pure joy to shoot. I have shot 9's that were much less pleasurable. I tried some of my light 1911 target loads in it and wow an awesome accuate little gun great job Springfield.

    I ordered XDS 45acp online and it should be at my local gun dealer tomorrow. Then I get to go see it, fill out the paperwork for the background check and transfer and pick it up Friday. Im looking forward to it. This would be the one I would use for concealed carry if I do carry. Anyone have any shooting experience with this gun?

    A great pistol - feels great in the hand - very manageable, excellent EDC option.

    So far, so good. I probably only have 150 rounds through it and no problems at all with the gun. I myself need practice to get better accuracy. I also got a DeSantis Die hard ankle holster to use for concealed carry. It is comfortable for me.

    Just got mine back from recall. I like it but it truly needs the Pearce Grips pinky finger extensions on the 5-round mags, or to move up to the extended 7-round mags for the right grip.
