XDs - what's in the box

I've had my XDs for a few months (love it BTW). I was reading an article in Shooting Illustrated about the XDs and they said it is supposed to come with (long list of accessories here), two 5 rd mags and a 7 rd mag. I had everything listed in the article except the 7rd mag. Did I get shorted one? I know packaging mistakes can happen. Considering the price of mags I'd like to know if I was supposed to get one.

I suspect SI held that story for a while before publishing, without doing any kind of update. I recall reading somewhere here on the forum that the early XD-S packages included a third mag - the 7-rounder.

Can someone confirm that the XD-S model started with serial numbers at 500XXX? If that's the case, the review gun is a lower-serial-number example, at 502XXX, suggesting the testing and photography occurred early on in XD-S production.

Also - are my eyes just getting REALLY old, or does the cover shot of the XD-S show what looks like a stainless barrel? It's weird because the inside shots show a pistol with the same serial number, but the crown of he barrel on the cover sure looks polished and shiny to me.

FWIW, my BiTone has a serial number of 535XXX and came with two 5-round mags. I really like the gun a lot.

I had one of the first shipped out of Springfield and they did not come with the 7 rnd mags. I have owned 4 other XDS's since that first one and none have ever came with the 7 rnd ones.

Did anyone get any extra fiber optic with their XDs? I don't recall getting any, but I did with the XD(M) I bought this past weekend. I need to dig around the case when I get home, but I am pretty sure my XDs didn't have any with it...

Yes, they started with 500xxx.

They likely sent a 7 rd mag for promotional reasons because they were featuring the XDS. IIRC, they sent Hickok45 one as well, for example.
