This is what the Glock 36 should have been

Recommended Posts

A few months ago I got a used Springfield Armory XDS 45 subcompact . This thing is thin,  I can carry it in my front pocket with a DeSantis pocket holster just like my Ruger LCP only a tad bigger. It is a .45ACP. It shoots great and is reliable. I liked it so much that I was on the hunt for another one since they are discontinued. You know , 1 is none and 2 is one. Last week  I found a new one in the box at a store. It was new in the box but "old stock". I got it for $450. This one was the "long slide" 4 inch barrel. Man it is nice ! Still just as thin but just a 4 inch barrel instead of a 3.3 inch barrel. With the longer magazines it has I can make it a 5 rd , 6rd , and 7 +1 gun . I like Glock and have used Glock on my job for 24 years. The Glock 36 in .45ACP is so darn fat compared to this and it's only magazine is 6 rds. There is no other magazine for it , not even bigger magazines with  magazine sleeves. The Glock 36 is the same size as the G19.  If Glock would do something like this XDS 45 , they'd win a lot of customers in my opinion. This XDS has a grip-safety , which I don't like and has a few more parts too , but it is the best and thinnest .45ACP I know . As far as I know , Springfield Armory is making these in 9mm only now and they have the red dot cuts on the slide but no .45ACP.  Enjoy the pictures.

They make some good guns.  I have one of their .45 ACP XDe's.

I was very close to getting one of those . I like hammer fired pistols.
