I would really love it (read that as buy one) if Springfield would come out with a single stack XD Subcompact. I think it would be a great alternative to the Kahr, Rohrbaugh, and Kel-Tec small 9mm handguns. True that it wouldn't be as small as all of them, but for me the primary concern seems to be thickness. If I had something the size of the SC but less than an inch thick, it would be highly concealable. Maybe not a pocket gun, but something that would just disappear in a nice IWB rig. Not to mention that it would be quite a bit cheaper than all but the Kel-Tec. I've been considering sending an email to Springfield, but curious what other folks think of it.

might be nice, but it would require a significant redesign to thin the whole gun out--frame, slide, rails...would cost a lot to retool, and Springfield doesn't even make 'em--they'd have to convince their Croatian buddies that there's a big enough market to make it worthwhile. That's probably a bigger hurdle than anything else.

Just pony up the $$$ for the Rohrbaugh and love the SC for what it is. ;)

I just switched from an XD-9 subcompact to a Kahr PM9 for daily and lightweight clothing carry and the difference in comfort is incredible.
I loved the XD but found it to be somewhat uncomfortable when worn IWB even with my beloved Milt Sparks SS2.
The Kahr is just as accurate and even though 10 or 12 rnds is better than 7 or 8 rnds, I like the Kahr better.
The only drawback was the price :wink:
