dtjobrien Well if someone is thinking of what weapon to use as their carry concealed weapon, weight is a big factor along with size. ppmd stated that this is not found on Springfield’s site. I was wandering the same is that with a loaded clip, and how do you thing the 9mm would compare in weight with a full mag. I just cant make up my mind about 9mm or 40 sub to carry. I don’t know the weight of 11 9mm bullets instead of 10 40 cal cant be that much difference.

Thanks for the info ppmd

Well, sort of. Springfield's site gives a weight of 20.5 ounces. PPMD gives a weight of 23.1 ounces.

dtjobrien I moved from that god forsaken city 2 1/2 years ago. I didn’t think they let anyone have guns except criminals and cops.:twisted: Do you have a carry permit, or just have it to target shoot. Sorry to bag on your city I just hate that place so much and my wife keeps trying to talk me into moving back. :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: I think the big one is the only thing that can save me form it.

Springfield's site does NOT have the 40 caliber BITONE Sub Compact weight listed. The bitone 40 caliber SC has a Springfield stock number of XD9822(HC), which is NOT listed. I am just supplying information to those interested. Weight was and continues to be a huge factor in what I carry.

There are many different "loads" and bullet weights, so having a loaded magazine would not be meaningful as there will be significant variability depending on the type of ammo involved.

The magazine was NOT loaded with any ammo with the weight listed.

Oh, I'm sorry. I hadn't realized that the color would give it a different weight from EVERY OTHER XDSC model.

I think you meant to quote another message, but I understand your meaning.

Xhypex weighed his 9mm, and I weighed my 40 caliber. I would expect some difference.

I don't know for sure. But does a stainless slide vs blued slide make a difference in weight? You tell me.

Clearly, Springfield underestimates the weight of their pistols on their website.

No, I quoted what I intended to. My point being that all the SC models listed by Springfield have the exact same weight (including the 9mm bi-tone).

If only from using different scales.

I don't know for sure. But does a stainless slide vs blued slide make a difference in weight? You tell me.
No, you weigh one of each on the same scale and tell me. Springfield doesn't think so, but how would I know?

So it seems. I didn't say the weights they post were ACCURATE, I said they were there.
