The Springfield Armory XD-s is a striker-fired, ultra compact, single stack semi-automatic chambered in 9mm, .40 S&W, and .45acp. Carry yours in one of our Springfield XDs Kydex concealed carry holsters!
S Stands for SLIM
In the case of the XD series, the ‘S’ stands for SLIM and it lives up to its name.
The XD-s is a comfortable, compact, and most importantly concealable firearm.
It stands less than tall at 4.4” with the flush-fit magazine, 6.3 inches long, 3.3 inches of which are the barrel, and the slim comes into play at nine-tenths of an inch wide.
Now the XD-s is a small weapon that is shipped in a full-size case, the reason being, all the XD GEAR (Elite Package) that comes with the weapons in the signature XD series.
The Springfield XDs gun holsters, the dual magazine holster, the ‘speed-loader’, and the spare magazines are all located in the full-size case, usually to be stowed away in a desk drawer.
The enclosed Springfield XDs holster does not conceal the XD-s as well as say the ‘No-Print Wonder’ if you prefer XDs IWB Kydex holsters, found at the top of the page.
The XD GEAR OWB holster is designed Outside the Waistband and does not completely cover the barrel, therefore, XDs OWB holsters are not the best for concealment or safety.
Your hands should not slip…but they may get a little rugged.
The XD-s is a ‘smooth criminal‘ in regards to its accuracy, reliability, and effectiveness.
This gun is highly accurate, the sights that come out-of-the-box are Fiber-Optic front and dovetail rear sights, allowing you to take and maintain a positive sight picture.
The sights are slim and low-profile, which means non-obstructive. The ergonomics allow you to point-and-shoot.
This gun, for me, could take and expend everything but the kitchen sink. No malfunctions and no misfires.
The XD-s does not have the GRIP ZONE texture, but still, contains a good thorough texture in the front straps and back straps for a good firing grip.
If you are like me, you may want to invest in an after-market grip or a cover, due to how rough the texture can get after a day at the range.
This gun is one of the smoothest and quietest guns I have ever handled. Size really did not matter with the XD-s, there is hardly any recoil and the only noise I really heard was the audible click of the striker resetting.
This is a gun for the history books, Springfield hit a home run with the XD-s. This is a gun that can meet and exceed your concealed carry needs.
