I currently own a Kimber Ultra Eclipse II, Springfield XDM 5.25 9mm, and an XDS 45. I took my new XDS out to the range on Saturday for its first shoot. This is what I found that I like and dont like about it so far. Dis-Likes: I cant sling shot a round into the chamber, every single time I attempt this the round goes straight up, like a stove pipe condition. To clear it I have to strip the magazine, lock the slide to the rear to get the round out. So to load, which so far has worked every time, I have to lock the slide to the rear insert loaded magazine, and press the slide release. I shot both Gold Dot 230s, and 230 ball ammunition, both did this. This worries me if I ever have the issue where the slide doesnt lock back after last round, I wouldnt want to be in a reload situation where I am unable to sling shot a round if the slide didnt lock back. The trigger has a lot to be desired, it has more than one stop as I pull, instead of a very clean pull to a stop, then clean break like my XDM has. This may resolve itself as I break it in. Likes: I love how small and light it is compared to my 1911 which has been my EDC. It conceals easier than my 1911, I think this is more due to the holster I have for the XDS. Comp-Tac Minotaur MTAC, so far I love this holster. It is very accurate if you can get past the in my opinion less than desirable trigger. I was able to shoot it as accurately as my 1911. So far other than the sling shot issue, it has not malfunctioned at all. My 1911 took some work and about 600 rounds to become reliable, and it is only reliable if I feed it ammo it likes... kind of a picky beast. So far no issues with the slide not locking back. Are there others that are seeing the sling shot issue as well, if so any work arounds?
