CLICK HERE to vote in the Springfield Armory Duel – Range Officer 9mm vs. XD-M 5.25 Competition.

Springfield Armory is having a huge summer contest. It’s called “The Duel.” They’re pitting some of their most popular guns against each other in head-to-head competitions. As part of these promotions, they’re also giving away guns. Each Monday, they’ll announce which gun will be given away later in the week. The first one up for grabs is the XD Sub-Compact. Contestants can submit entries at the Springfield website once an hour, every hour. If you don’t plan on sleeping, that gives you 24 chances a day, every day, until the drawing.  In celebration of the Gun-Day giveaway, we’re bringing you a review, so you’ll know what you’re in for if you win.

Springfield Armory introduced the polymer framed XD line more than a decade ago, yet these hard hitting pistols are still popular with shooters who expect reliability, performance, and value. We’re looking at the smallest of the XD line, the XD Sub-Compact. I’ve shot a lot of sub compact guns, and this is one of the most effective I’ve seen.

xd

The XD is a short, stocky little 9mm. It isn’t going to fit in most pockets, but it is still a great option for concealed carry.

The XD Sub-Compact

Recoil System Dual Spring w/ Full Length Guide Rod
Trigger 5.5 – 7.7 lbs.

Length 6.25″
Grip Width 1.20″
Frame Black Polymer
Magazines 13 Round Compact, 16 Round w/ X-Tension

The XD Sub-Compact is one mean little pug. The polymer-framed powerhouse holds 16 rounds of 9mm in its extended magazine, and is still small enough to conceal. But don’t let the Sub-Compact label snow you. This is a hefty little gun. It seems paradoxical, but a fully loaded XD Sub-Compact feels and shoots like a much larger gun.

xd

Next to the XD-S, it is hard to tell much difference. Yet the two pistols behave differently.

XD, XD-S, XD(M)?

Let’s get into the obvious comparisons. Springfield Armory makes a number of deceptively similar guns. The XD with its 3 inch barrel looks a lot like the XD-S, with its 3.3 inch barrel. Both are now chambered in 9mm. They’re both purpose driven concealed carry guns, and there’s virtually no difference in the guns’ abilities. The big distinctions are the available calibers and the obvious round counts in the magazines.

The XD-S is a single-stack. This limits its firepower. It is also thin, which increases its ability to be concealed in tight places. Small-framed thin people benefit from the flat profile of the gun. But is that fraction of an inch worth the limitation placed on capacity?

The XD is a double-stack, and the grip is really wide. While this width is great for control, it does make it harder to conceal. If, like me, you are built more like a double-stack .45 than a single-stack anything, concealing an XD is way too easy. I carry an XD-S, but the XD Sub-Compact is much easier for me to use. Looks like I’ll be learning a new gun….

The XDs has a much more aggressive texture on the grip, and the sights are upgraded for deep concealment. The XD has a much less aggressive grip texture, and the sights are less streamlined. Yet, the grip texture doesn’t need to be as aggressive. The girth allows for a better grip, even without the added texture, and the three dot sights get the job done.

xd

The XD has less texture on its grip, but it is still easier for me to hold onto than the XD-S.

At the end of the comparison is a lingering question. The XD-S and the XD Sub-Compact are so similar in size, yet so dissimilar in their respective capacities. Can you conceal the extra width of the XD? If the answer is yes, the benefits will answer the question for you. The added weight makes the XD a more controllable gun. The added capacity means you don’t have to reload quite as often. You won’t have the streamlined sights or a fiber optic front sight, but those seem like extras to me, and not a reason to sacrifice the extra rounds.

And then there’s the comparison to the XD-S’s bigger brother. If you ever carry OWB, the XD(M) is a good choice. The XD(M) functions in exactly the same way as the other XD pistols. When I went to the range for this review, I had an XD Sub-Compact, an XD-S 3.3 in .45 ACP, an XD(M) in 9mm, and an XD-S 4.0 in 9mm. It was a bit of a mess on the bench where we were trying to keep magazines and cartridges organized. Yet on the range, I often forgot which of the double stack XD pistols I was shooting. Especially with the extended magazine on the Sub Compact.

I guess where I’m going with this is that these pistols are all very similar, and very effective. The lines between their intended purposes is blurred. On the far end, the XD(M) seems built for competition. On the short end, the XD-S is truly a concealed carry piece. In the middle, the XD pistols and XD(M) variants do it all.

The striker status indicator is easily visible.

The striker status indicator is easily visible.

One feature the XD has that the XD-S doesn’t is the striker status indicator, which indicates more than the simple fact that this is a striker fired pistol. The small steel bar extends from the end of the pistol just enough to be seen and felt.  There’s no thumb safety, but it does have Springfield’s Ultra Safety Assurance Action Trigger System which is both a mouthful and a lever that rides in the center of the actual trigger. Until that lever is depressed, the trigger won’t move to the rear. And behind that is a grip safety that is automatically depressed when you grip the gun. I’ve yet to find a way to grab the pistol without engaging that safety.

These are both intuitive safeties. There’s also a firing pin block which adds in a third layer. All combine to make a gun that is more impervious to accidental discharge, but one that will function when you need it, without you having to take the extra steps needed to thumb a manual safety.

One of the most interesting features of this pistol is the slide. It is, for lack of a better description, terraced.  It is wider at the frame than it is at the top, and, when compared to the XD-S and XD(M) lines, the frames on the XD line are beefier. This gives an empty XD a top heavy, feel. Yet when the gun is loaded, especially with the extended mag, it is ideally balanced. And the extra weight cuts down on some of the snap that defines lighter guns. The XD with a 3 inch barrel has less felt recoil than some of the .380s I’ve shot. This makes it a good option for those who may otherwise shy away from a 9mm because of recoil control issues.

xd

Compared to the trim lines of the X(M) and the XD-S, the older XD looks overbuilt. Yet this is what makes it effective.

Shooting the XD Sub-Compact

I was introduced to the XD line through the XD-S. Before that, I’d not been drawn to Springfield’s polymer pistols. I’d run many of their 1911s, and knew them to be solid performers. I even carry a Range Officer from time to time.  When they launched the XD-S, I was excited to have such a huge round in such a small package, and I jumped on the bandwagon with everyone else. And I really liked what I found. Without even realizing I was doing it, I’d ignored the XD Sub-Compact.

When I decided to review the XD Sub Compact, I didn’t expect any surprises. Yet I’ve been looking at some of the raw video footage from a couple of range trips, and I can see a noticeable difference in the way I shoot the XD. The larger grip allows me to hold down the muzzle flip. It shoots flat. I can pull double taps very quickly. I can pop through a magazine, as fast as I can work the trigger, without ever having to slow down to reset my sights.

While the XD-S is great choice for concealed carry, reloads are more complicated (and more frequent). The double-stack mag on the XD is easy to load. You can drop a mag and pop a new one in just like you can on any typical full-sized duty pistol. The one thing I’d suggest is that you load like you mean it. Hammer the mag home. Just pushing it in casually may not be enough to seat it fully.

xd

The trigger guard on the XD has more of a convex front end, which some prefer.

The short barrel isn’t going to win any distance competitions. I’ve made shots with the XD-S as far as 100 yards, but it feels like a novelty. At 7 yards, the XD will tear up a target. That’s a polite way of saying it isn’t going to poke one clean hole. Nor do you want it to. Think of it like this. Every distinct hole in a bad guy is going to produce a new wound channel, dramatically increasing stopping power. That’s why people train to shoot double-taps. You don’t want both bullets going into the exact same hole. Two holes are more effective than just one. It doesn’t matter that the XD isn’t going to shoot one ragged hole, this is a pistol meant for self defense. It is meant for close quarters work, and it does its job perfectly. You can use the sights and hit anything within a 2 inch circle, or you can point shoot and hit the center of a torso target.

And the 9mm is still going to provide some impressive performance, even from this short of a barrel. +P loads average  about 1,200 FPS. The typical carry loads, depending on weight, come in anywhere from 900 FPS to 1,100 FPS. While it isn’t the full potential of the 9mm round, those numbers aren’t bad.

If you were into stippling, the XD would allow for a lot of custom work.

If you were into stippling, the XD would allow for a lot of custom work.

Conclusions

The XD is a surprising little gun. I hadn’t expected to say that, but the control that the XD offers, even in the Sub-Compact version, makes it a contender for IWB concealed carry. As the pistol has been on the market for a while, there are scores of holster options. In a world that is dominated by thinner-is-better, lighter-is-better, smaller-is-better pistols, the XD makes no concessions. It is unapologetically hefty.  In this configuration, the pistol sells for around $450. If you want a little bling, you can dress one up with a stainless slide for a bit more.

xd

This cut out is necessary to disassemble the XD.

The serrations on the slide are less aggressive than they are the later XD lines.

There is a short rail on the XD, just enough for smaller gun lights and some lasers.

xd

People make a big deal about the slim lines of the XD-S, but the XD still compares favorably.

    I know this probably will not matter to you or anyone else regarding this item, but I hope I can win one of the XD .40 SW or XD 45 as I am a Disabled Veteran on Social Security, stilll fighting VA for Compensation, and becasue of lack of funds, we have to live in a “not so respectable area. The neighborhood knows I am a veteran and that I do not cover for people hiding from the police and I myself have had some law enforcement training and eperience and I REALLY NEED a way to protect my family, but cannot afford a decent handgun.

    SO, if your company does care, especially about someone who spent 11 years of their life and now cannot serve any longer nor physically protect his family just because of an active duty injury and political crud!

    Thank you,

  • Dallas Eaton August 29, 2015, 7:56 am

    I purchased the XD-S 45 cal. I have many hand guns but this is the one i carry. Two of my friends bought one shortly after i showed it to them.

    Would be sweet to win this Weapon !!

  • Bob Stewarts March 30, 2015, 9:22 am

    I’m often in localities where local law limits capacity to ten rounds. For this reason and for its 4 inch barrel I prefer the XDS.

  • OhioBrian September 25, 2014, 11:30 pm

    I own seven pistols including both an XDs-45 and XD-9 Sub Compact. Of the seven, the Sub Compact is the easiest to shoot, most accurate, most comfortable, and has the best trigger in my inventory. I have about 300 rounds through it with no FTF or FTE problems. Zero, none. It eats any ammo I feed it and it is my fist choice for CC.

  • John Peay August 10, 2014, 11:13 am

    I like my SW9VE, but i’m ready to get another sub-compact to go with my SKS Sniper rifle.

  • Dan Heuton August 8, 2014, 11:40 am

    I’m an FFL holder and got one for a friend. Looked it over awhile before he picked it up. Nice, wish I could win one for myself.

  • Angelo Consales August 6, 2014, 9:36 pm

    Who says, small ain’t better. Greater grip for women and men and you don’t have to carry an extra clip.
    A great gun to have!!!!! We all should carry one where it’s legal ie Florida. As a Canadian I wish I would have
    a chance in WINNING this great gun!!!!!!!!! Regards from your friends up North.

  • David Prewitt August 5, 2014, 10:38 pm

    I’m afraid my old school choices have finally been replaced. What a weapon.

  • Carl Parise August 5, 2014, 10:07 pm

    Would love to have a gun like this. I don’t know how happy I could be if I were to have a gun like this as a personal carry piece.

  • George Brussard August 5, 2014, 3:22 pm

    love this weapon , if i win it, Ill come and pick it up. boston strong!!

  • Charles August 5, 2014, 2:39 am

    Saying you don’t want the gun to shoot into the same hole sounds awful. I will be the one to decide where my next round goes. To imply the gun will tear up the target makes it sound like a inaccurate pistol. Most of these are as good as the shooter and while not as accurate as some like the H&K’s or Sig’s it’s a practical pistol for self defense and reliable. I would rather have a G-S30 if I wanted something a little more accurate. The big thing is practice, practice and more practice.

  • Kirk Herring August 4, 2014, 10:04 pm

    I haven’t had the opportunity to shoot an XD, but I’ve heard lots of good things about them. I’d love to get one.

  • willim Frost August 4, 2014, 9:57 pm

    Have 2 xdm 40s and just love them

  • Marc M. August 4, 2014, 8:10 pm

    I have been carrying a XDS in .45acp since it came out. I carry every day with no exceptions. Many of the guys I work with now carry them as off duty guns because of not only the compactness, but the accuracy is phenomenal for a small .45.

  • Kevin Smith August 4, 2014, 8:04 pm

    A double stack won’t work in Kalifornia but the other would be great to have.

  • Dave P August 4, 2014, 5:44 pm

    I generally like full size because of my hand size. But, I can get used to it. I have two other Springfields, a third in 9mm would be great.

    I have used the full sized XD for sometime and like it very well. Would love to have the XDs as a companion piece for concealed carry.

  • bob dunn August 4, 2014, 2:26 pm

    i win

  • Jim Rogers August 4, 2014, 2:04 pm

    I own an XD 9mm and XDs 9mm. The XD requires an IWB holster to conceal which I find obtrusive in some situations; driving, for instance. I carry the XDs in a pocket holster and it works well with both jeans and cargo pants.

    • dink winkerson August 7, 2014, 12:42 pm

      Hey Jim. What pocket holster did you settle on. I have the .45 version and have been lookin for a pocket holster. Most i have found have been more square cut on the bottom, like for jeans. I carry at work, wearing uniforms that have more of a taper to the pockets.

  • David - NorthTexas August 4, 2014, 1:14 pm

    I like the idea of a double stack as long as it does not print. I have switched to appendix carry since I am seated most of the day and it is a much quicker draw with less of a tell. BUT I practiced with and empty gun until I was comfortable with the draw. Making a mistake on a 5o’clock draw would be a big pain, but from appendix carry is catastrophic – just saying.
    Be safe, stay strong, practice often!!!

  • Dale E. White August 4, 2014, 12:04 pm

    The XD is just the pistol we could use for our business proteection issues.

  • Ringo August 4, 2014, 12:02 pm

    I’ve owned an XDS .45 since before the recall and after. While the XD and XDS 9mm or .45 are very nice guns, they are HEAVY. In fact, so heavy that I find them uncomfortable. For fire power buy a Glock 19 because you can buy 33 rd extended mags and every option on the planet. Glocks are just as easy to carry and have more options. NOW, if you want the ULTIMATE CARRY GUN, buy a Sig Sauer P938 or a P938 Scorpion (if you want to suppress it). The Sigs are ALL METAL, smaller, thinner and fairly light. The Sig P938 is also 9mm and can handle the hottest 9mm rounds on the planet, unlike a lot of these plastic guns. The Sig also has a safety and a much better trigger pull. …Just being honest folks.

  • Gary Mattox August 4, 2014, 11:59 am

    I have a XD M .45 very nice weapon. With the modifications allowed you can custom fit to your hand. Now that I have mine I would recommend to everyone, but I hope to win the subcompact or obtain a XD-S later so don’t win my subcompact or purchase my XD S . Love my Springfield!!

  • MC August 4, 2014, 10:11 am

    These are great pistols very controllable and extremely easy to hit 6″ steel at 25yds all day. However I currently have mine on the market forsale. I switched to the M&P 9c as my “truck gun”. I just love the way the M&P feels and it’s made in the US. Springfield has lost a lot of my respect having nearly all their guns produced overseas, even most of their 1911’s are made outside the US now. M1A and custom shop are about the only items produced here now with most all others outsourced. I own virtually every major polymer gun on the market (glock, M&P, XD, XDs, XDm, etc) and I must say the M&P is my favorite of any. I suggest trying an M&P compact out as well, very comparable to this SC and feels better and is US made. I must also agree with Someone else’s post, Springfield offers a great warranty program, and the recall on the XDs was great, they returned it with a free extended mag and everything was paid for by Springfield.

    I love the sub compacts. Either one would be a great backup. Winning one would be great also. The list price seems very reasonable. If (as stated in this article) the double stack XD is only marginally larger, then that would be a selling point for me: concealability with maximum fire power.

    I own an XD in 9mm, it is one of the sweetest shooting sub compacts I own. Never an issue and surprisingly little recoil. The redundant safety’s give me confidence to carry chambered. The only drawback is that it is lonely, and needs a friend…..LOL.

    The operating mechanism and functionality are the perfect compliment to any ones waistband or purse.
    Even if I don’t win, as soon as I can afford one, it too will become a treasure of mine……………………………

    My friend’s main carry gun is an XD sub-compact. Neither one of us has any trouble shooting one hole at 7 yards with it. It’s a very nice piece and if I didn’t already have a Glock 19 I would definitely consider buying one – hopefully I win one!

    I agree that S/A makes a useful and reliable platform in their XD line…however, let us never forget the fact that without Glock paving the way, there would not be an XD…or a S&W M&P etc.
    For my money, I will stick with the original “Point & Click” platform

  • crouton976 August 4, 2014, 8:28 am

    The XD-SC is a fantastic gun! As stated above, they can be a bit bulky for smaller framed folks, but they’re still easy to conceal.

    They also will eat any ammo you feed them, since they’re not at all picky about their diet. I’ve never experienced a failure, jam, or anything else with these pistols.

    I’m not exactly sure how to enter the giveaway, but if someone would let me know, I’d appreciate it very much.

    Looks like a Glock. Ideal for my collection. Will go to the Springfield website and try my luck.

    I think that all of them would be good carry guns ,but especially the 15 round one.

    I use an XD 9mm sub-compact as my primary carry weapon, and to be honest, I wouldn’t trade it for the world. It’s comfortable with my IWB holster plus I prefer to carry a weapon with one double stack 16 round magazine instead of carrying an additional single stack mag. It also has been extremely reliable; never had a single FTF or FTE with it. In the end, if it is a matter of life or death, I’m very confident it will function if you have to defend oneself or others.

      I like the single stack. It’s easier to CCW.
