You would think a shop range selling guns would make sure
the rentals were clean and proper care in order to SELL MORE

Couldn't say why it malfunctioned too many reasons but if you liked the way it shot and you could handle it without flinching, etc etc then get one I think they are great guns for those that can shoot them properly.

Probably a good chance that the XDS was not cleaned & lubed well. I've ran mine pretty wet since I've purchased it. 600 flawless rounds so far.

Your grip/thumb placement has alot to do w/the performance of this gun as well.

Thanks, it likely was not being kept clean. My groupings were more like 4-5 inches at 20', quite a bit wider than when I use my 5.25" XDM. I guess that's to be expected, though, as I'm pretty new still and shorter guns seem harder to me.

I just bought an XDS. Could you give a bit more description of how you grip the XDS and where you place the thumb? It might help us Newbies. Thanks.

Night & day difference on shooting comparison between the two pistols. I also have two 5.25" 9mm & .45 no comparison IMO.

Also keep in mind that it could have been a malfunctioning gun. Users here and elsewhere have sent their XDS back to Springfield to fix and some others have even got replacements. There does seem to be a portion of folks out there who got a bad batch (like myself) but they are the minority.

Slide lock release to load the first round all the time after inserting the mag and I have not had a single miss feed either.

It's never the fault of the XDS, always the fault of the user.

C'mon, the first thing an experienced range officer would suspect as the cause of the problem would be a carbon fouled range gun. But he mentioned returning the gun, not cleaning and lubing it. LOL

It states in the manual that you should only load the weapon by inserting a full mag and then releasing the slide lock. I have put 400 rounds through mine without issue. And now after about 300 rounds( which is the recommended break in round count) I can " sling shot" the slide and load a round without issue. But I have cleaned my gun and lubed it properly. Good luck and I hope you have a better experience next time.
