    I really thought it would have more capacity in 9 mm than 7. Wonder if there will be a conversion barrel for the .45.

    No conversion barrell will be available. The mag well of the 9 will be a different size and won't accept the .45 mag.

    i bet they come out with a 9mm for the 45. sounds like it will be just a barrel and a special mag.

    I want to know why the XDS 9 had a better trigger. Is Hickock lying to us? HOW COULD HE?!? Did Springfield do a factory trigger job on the T&E guns? SCANDALOUS!!

    Or is the trigger just better, and can I get the better trigger on my xds .45?

    Prp trigger kit drops it down to 4.5lbs. Cost 15 bucks and is super easy to install. Best upgrade I did for my XDs.

    Makes me want the XDs 9 even more. Always enjoy his videos and he seemed really impressed with the gun.

    I'm sure its come up before, but the .45 and 9mm's will utilize the same holsters correct? I plan on getting the .45 soon and may pick up a 9mm later down the road.


    Watched the video earlier today on my TV (if you don't have a smart TV get one because YouTube is sloop much cooler on them) and I was really surprised at how little recoil I saw. Seemed to shoot really flat to me. Not that I think the .45 is bad, I rented it a while back and loved it. More than my trp.

    I'm sure whatever holsters fit the XDs 45 will work just fine with the 9 & 40. No worries.

    From the video I am thinking a conversion is possible. Hickok weighed the 2 XDs and the 9mm was heavier than the XDs 45 and He said all the weight was because of the smaller bore in the barrel and side by side you could see all the weight was in the barrel. With all the cost of production it would be more "economical/smart" to use Like parts from 2 different guns instead of producing 2 completely different guns. I watched the video hoping Hickok would at least try to see if the 45 mag would fit in the 9mm XDs, that would prove that Springfield used the same frame. That would mean all you needed for an XDs 45 conversion would be a XDs 9mm barrel/recoil spring/and magazine. That would be like the Sig 250, which can be converted to a 45acp, 9mm, 40 S&W by simply ordering a caliber conversion kit.

    Yeah. I always enjoy Hickock45's videos. Amiable fellow. I suffer through NutNFancy's long winded & rambling gun reviews to get a different perspective - but they're work to slog through (unlike Hickock45's)!
    I think SA got the XDs right the first time. The vast majority of us XDs owners love our guns and haven't had problems with them. 9mm (& .40 down the road) just means I may have to add another XDs to my collection! :lol:

    Im sure thats the case, there are a lot of guns out on the market that make fine weekend plinkers. The XDS is one of them.

    Outside of that, I dont see any other role for them. That has been the conclusion of many, web wide.

    Now lets see how the 9mm does for serious shooters. The 40 makes zero sense but hey, maybe itll find its role right next to the 45.
