Not quite sure what this does that my XDm45c doesn't? It certainly doesn't beat the Kimber Ultra Carry II

Smaller, lighter, no annoying hammer or beaver tail to catch or poke.

Nice looking Web site, still considering to get the 45 ACP or wait for the 9mm.

Would you think this means shipping soon from Croatia or shipping soon to distributors or to the stores?

This is what I am thinking. Sure would be nice to shoot the 45 ACP before deciding; hope one of my local ranges will use one as a rent gun.

4.4" high XDs vs 5"+ on UC II (measurement listed is height to barrel, not overall) That extra 5/8th inch would be handy to add another round in the mag.

also, UC II is listed as 7 rd cap... not 7+1 or 6+1 like just about everyone else on the planet advertises... so is 7 rds the actual magazine capacity or is it 6+1? Is this an attempt to pad it to make it appear better?

Weight: XDs 21.5 oz, UC II 25 oz.
Width: XDs 1", UC II 1.28"

about the only thing the UC II does better at is construction and 1 round extra (maybe 2, i donno)

Less rounds too, the hammer/beaver tail have never bugged me... My 1911 is more comfortable than my XDm, both the xdm and the 1911 are light enough to be comfortable all day..

How light does one need a damn gun to be? In .45 ACP a gun that small and light the follow up shots have to be slowwwww....

IMO the 9mm would be a more appropriate cartridge for this size gun but, maybe they'll prove me wrong.

I know others have said it but, 6 rounds of anything ain't much to carry, I'd have to tote two or three spare mags to be comfortable..

At least with my Ultra Carry I can do a very efficient emergency reload from empty, I don't see slamming those tiny 5 round mags home quickly to be very feasible.
