Product Description
The surprisingly slim Springfield XD-S Compact delivers superior innovation in the palm of your hand. The comfortable design of the all new XD-S feels so natural that it's like an extension of your own body. At only 1" wide, the XD-S fits as perfectly into your concealed-carry strategy, while providing you the the power of a .45. The unique combination of an ultra-slim profile paired with enhanced performance point-and-shoot features allows you to shoot accurately without having to adjust your wrist, giving you greater control. This powerful pistol includes the Ultra Safety Assurance (USA) Action Trigger System, a loaded chamber indicator, and a grip safety. In addition, the XD-S offers a top-of-the-line, enhanced secure grip texture for greater control and usability. The low-profile rear and fiber-optic front sights are specifically designed to allow you to quickly zero in on your target and a single-position Picatinny rail puts lights and lasers within easy reach.

    I bought this hand gun a few weeks ago but due to my schedule and vacation was not able to go to the range. Finally went to the the outdoor range today with a few friends. I am a HUGE fan of Springfield Armory and own the XD 45acp as well and cannot rave enough about the quality of these pistols.
    I have read all the reviews about this gun both professional articles and comments on forums from numerous sites. The most common complaint seems to be the FTF and FTE which if enough research is done can be attributed to weak grip. I had no such issues with this pistol.
    I fired Winchester 230gr FMJ, Tulammo 230gr FMJ (if it can fire this cheap stuff without issue it can fire anything) and Hornady Critical Defense HP 230gr...all told about 200 rounds. No problems, not one.
    The recoil, in my honest opinion, is not much different than my XD 45acp. Listen, this is a 45acp in a 3inch barrel...I hate saying it, but it is not going to be comfortable for everyone. I tried limp wristing this pistol to try to produce a failure and could not. My friends who watched me could not believe the groupings at 7yds and 10yds consistently around 4in to as little as two inches (maybe once or twice, probably luck) and this is the first time firing it. This pistol is not just accurate...it is scary accurate. You have to adjust when double tapping because unlike a 9mm it will take a split second more to fire off a second round due to recoil but I had no problem zeroing in on target and hitting center mass...with a 45acp HP in a defensive position a shot or two to the chest is game over, end of confrontation.
    After shooting my hand felt fine and my forearm is not sore. I also go to the gym about 5 times a week and would consider myself to be in pretty good shape for a 35yo-40yo male if that makes any difference in grip strength. I will say this, when I bought it I took it apart and cleaned it well and oiled it...then it sat for a few weeks so this morning before the range put a little more oil on the barrel and slides. I am a big believer that your gun needs to be treated and cared for and it will do the same for you.
    I absolutely love this gun and cannot stop gushing over it. It is everything I hoped it would be and more. For those of you on the fence about this pistol go ahead and take the plunge you will not regret this purchase. This pistol is a machine and Springfield has changed the game of concealed 45acp. Powerful, manageable and most importantly reliable...that IS the XDS.

    I bought the stainless slide 45 acp version of the xds for a ccw gun that would be nice and small, light, and slim, yet still have that 45 wallop. The xds fulfills these criteria quite nicely. It also shoots very nicely with recoil that is not as bad as it should be for a gun this light and small.

    HOWEVER there is an issue that makes me not able to recommend the xds to anyone intending to use it for personal protection. With a round in the chamber the slide can easily get pushed back about 1/4 inch (when holstering, if you bump it against something, etc) and the recoil spring is not strong enough to push it forward again. This of course causes the gun to not fire until the slide is pushed forward again. If you are ever in a situation where you need to use your gun to protect yourself every second counts, and any small hiccup can mean the difference between life and death.

    I have emailed Springfield about the issue and they refuse to acknowledge there is a problem. And it is a common problem. Search for it on YouTube or just google it and you will see EVERY SINGLE ONE of these pistols has this problem.

    Excellent Conceal Carry Firearm

      Comments about Springfield Armory Springfield XD-S Compact Handgun:

      If you are looking for a great conceal carry firearm the XD-S is it. This is my primary weapon of choice and carry a 9mm as a backup. After purchasing went home and fired 30 rounds, handles very well, very little kickback. The front/rear sight is outstanding when aiming at your target. Springfield Armory did a great job making this gun. The magazines (2) only hold 5 rounds each but you can purchase a 7 round extended magazine. Take down and clean up is very easy. Great purchase and well worth the money

          The XDS 45 is a great carry option. It is compact and light weight. The recoil is not bad for a 45 caliber handgun.

              First Springfield owned. I have a Sig 226 for home protection and replaced my Beretta 85 with the XPS-9 and just fired 100 rounds through it today. What a great shooter with no complaints at all. Considered a sig 250, S@W Shield, and the Glock 30. Went with my gut feeling and I can tell this will be a nice addition.
              I live in Tampa and could not be happier with Shooters World for purchase and great range to practice my passion.

                  I've owned my XDS for about 6 months and have fired several hundred rounds of all brands including aluminum casings with no issues. Groupings at 21 feet are in the 3" range. I feel this could be even better if I settled in on one quality brand of ammo. The recoil is the beauty of the pistol as it transfers an estimated 80% straight back through the arms and shoulders and allows easy re-acquisition of the target. Conceals great as long as you do not use the optional extended mag. My daughter will be getting a XDS 9mm this Christmas.
