I am a New member who just purchased a new XDS 45 this last week. I wanted one in FDE, but ended up with one in black because I found a great promo from a FFL that I have purchased from before. I mostly own Glocks, but have wanted an XDS in 45 ACP since Springfield did their 3 mag promo last year. I procrastinated last year, and regretted letting the promo slip by. This is also my first pistol in 45 ACP, all my others are 40's/357 SIG's/9mm/ and 25 ACP. I am looking for input from other XDs owners on what they like, and dislike, any improvements/changes that they have done to theirs. So far I really like the fiber optic front sight, but the grip feels small, even though I have the larger backstrap installed, and I have made a temporary grip sleeve from an old bike tube. I have average size hands, but I am used to the Glock "brick" size grips. I spent the last couple weeks checking other members posts before joining today.
