Gun Report

Springfield XD-S 45 ACP, $599

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The small 45 performed well in all of our tests and is easy to conceal. We like the added safety features compared to the others. The XD-S scored the highest in this test because of its performance in the defense test and for its great sights. Just do not try to spend all day at the range with it. Recoil becomes a problem after a few magazines.

The waffle pattern on the grip helps control.
The grooved rear sight did not reflect glare; dots were easy to read.
