We think the key point of grip circumference is the area covered by the thumb and middle finger. The XD9 excelled in offering a strong comfortable grip to the shooter.
The XD9 is a simple pistol. It has a polymer frame with an accessory rail in front of the trigger guard and button magazine release available from both sides of the pistol. There was no active mechanical safety that switches the gun off or on but there was a lever located in the center of the backstrap that must be compressed for the gun to fire. There is also a lever inside the face of the trigger that must be compressed to clear the striker.
