XDs .45ACP 3.3 weight: 21.5oz confirmed

I traded emails with a Springfield Armory rep today. Initially I wanted to confirm estimated availability and MSRP.

Here's a direct quote from the rep:
Those we hope to be shipping in March.

XD(S) suggested Retail pricing and part numbers: .45ACP only at this time.

Black: $599 XDS93345B

Bitone: $669 XDS93345S
Then, I asked about empty weight with magazine, given all the conjecture online about the 29oz figure being way too high.

Here's another direct quote from the rep:
21.5 oz with empty mag.

Thank you and have a great day!

I weighed 6 rounds of my current JHP defense round to be 4.5oz. Add this to the mix, and a fully loaded XDs 3.3 will carry at 26oz (a little more for FMJ).

This shaves nearly a pound off the carry weight of my XDm .45 4.5", when it is fully loaded. With the weight of the XDm .45 4.5", I often end up carrying my Ruger LCP instead. The latter can now become a backup gun.

Ciao!

P.S.: I have no affiliation with Springfield. I'm just very interested in this new offering and wanted to find out the facts.

I asked the rep if it was OK to post the info provided, and they recommended that I do so.

I thought the initial reported weight on this gun had to be off, glad to know it is in fact lighter than first believed. Thanks for the info OP!

Yeah, I didn't believe the part about import points being aided by extra weight. Glock 36 is imported isn't it?

Price seems a bit higher than was originally thought.

Wonder what street price will be initially? I'd bet sellers will get the MSRP given it is likely to be quite popular. I'm about to call my local shop to inquire about availability.

My LGS quoted $535. I was holding out for the Nano .40 but this XDs is making it really hard to wait!

I wonder if both Black and Bitone will be available at launch? I would be surprised if a Bitone even exists yet given how new this gun is!

That's good news. I saw the quote from Rob too.

But seriously, how does this thing score 75 points?
I get 68 points @ 22 ounces.
