By Request: Springfield XD(s) 9mm

As requested last night, here are some pictures of the new Springfield XD(s) 9mm version. Just like the 45ACP version, but with a smaller barrel.

Note to manufacturers: black guns on a black background may look posh, but trying to photograph them sucks.

    No info? MSRP? Capacity?

  2. avatarPete from Texas says:

    I was hoping they would have come out with an ambidextrous slide release.

    I’ll stick with my XDm, thank you…

    18 + 1 in the pipe…

    Take that, NY! :)

      The first time filled two mags and put one in the pipe, I was giddy.

        I always say, better to have too many and not need, rather than having too few and getting royally SCREWED!

          Way to go, guys, but I like concealability in my concealed carry weapon.

          But Foghorn, I say-I say Foghorn, what’s the capacity on the 9mm, 6+1 or 7?

  4. avatarPCnotPC says:

    Well, that’s different.

  5. avatarMatt in FL says:

    I shot the .45 version a few days ago, and I really liked it. Of course, I have an XD(M) 3.8 in .40, so I would…

    I love my XD .45 and would not mind this one for CC, but, that first pick looks like the results from a long night of JD, Metamucil, and corn dogs.

      “…the results from a long night of JD, Metamucil, and corn dogs.”

      You mean Bingo Night at the Lions’ Club?

    Two of these would make a great New New York Reload…

    Nice, I’ve been waiting for a M&P Shield 9mm, but I’ll be picking one these up if they become available before the shield I’m waiting for arrives.

  12. How does it compare to a Kimber super carry ultra?

  13. avatarJK says:

    I’d buy one in a heartbeat if it didn’t have that grip safety…

    • avatarMatt in FL says:

      That doesn’t make sense. Have you shot one? I have, and I’m not sure I’d be comfortable carrying something with that trigger without a grip safety. Or at least an external, but that requires muscle memory.

    • avatarMike. Wandrick says:

      Have shot EMP, Kimber Pro Cary and the Super Carry Ultra, several hundreds times. Never had any problem shootng. Feel safer carrying, condition One, knowing I have a grip safety as “extra protection” when drawing and pointing at my ” junk” with a weapon loaded and cocked and 230gr ammo. ( a misstep could ruin your day)
