With the barrel cut down to just 3" and and empty weight of just 26 oz, Springfield Armory's XD-9sc 9mm sub-compact pistol ties with the EMP as the smallest gun in the company's lineup.
This gun is made to work well as both a primary and backup concealed carry pistol. With the standard magazine this gun has a magazine capactiy of 13. Extended magazines are available as well which increase the gun's round count to 16.
Safety is never in question with the 9mm XD sub-compact pistol as it retains all of the safety elements found on the full-size gun. Durability is also comparable to the larger gun. Accuracy and speed between shots will devaite from the larger XD-9 based on each shooter's individual strength's and training.
The slide is formed from forged steel and traditionaly comes in the hardened Melonite finish but the Bi-Tone model comes with a stainless steel slide. The frame is made from lightweight, impact resistant polymer with black being the most common color but OD green being available as well.
Both front and rear sites are fixed. 3-dot white come standards but guns upgraded to Trijicon night sights or Heinie Tritium SlantPro night sights are offered as well.
Springfield Armory XD-9 Sub-Compact Pistol
The XD platform is a bit large for this gun to be carried in the pocket regardless of grip and barrel lenght. It works well, however, as a backup gun in an ankle holster as well as a primary concealed carry piece.

Carried a Glock 23 as a LEO.I like the XD9sc better. Better fell and balance overall. Performance about equal in real life. Read More
Recently purchased this firearm for concealed carry. During my LEO career I carried only SA/DA weapons. Everything I looked at had an uncomfortably long, heavy trigger pull. I also wanted to stay in a 9mm format. The XDsc trigger pull is smooth, crisp, and amazing. My first 10 rounds were within a 3 inch grouping at 15 yards. Every pistol I have owned never felt comfortable until I put at least 500 rounds through them for break in. This handgung felt smooth right out of the box. As for size, I placed this on top of my wifes LC9 and it was identical, about 1/4 inch thicker though, and just a bit heavier. Good tradeoff for 6 more rounds min. capacity and far less recoil.

This is my first gun review but found it a shame that this had yet to be reviewed here so I will do my best. The XDsc-9 is my daily carry and I use a Crossbreed Super tuck holster. It's concealability is quite high, though not what you would see from one of the pocket guns like an LCP, which my wife carries. I wear my holster in the 2 or 3 o'clock position and sometimes the pistol's butt can protrude. I am sure I feel that it's more noticable than it is as I have had nobody point it out. I am a self labeled Glock Snob, but when I looked for a concealed carry the XD line was appealing not only for the price tag but the dovetail safety in addition to the Glock trigger style safety. I don't want to end up like Plaxico Burress and glock myself in the leg. While I still prefer to shoot Glock at the range, I have had ZERO malfunctions with this weapon of any kind. I have run about 2000 rounds through it. My groups were at first, humbling with the XDsc-9 due to the rarity that I shoot a 3" barrel but over time I have become quite good with it. It's a comfortable shooter with not only the full sized mag which allows a full grip, but the shorter concealed carry mag. I try not to spoil myself with the full size grip/mag much as I never carry with it. It's durability has yet to really be tested but I can tell you it is identical in construction to a Glock in regards to the poly frame and steel slide. I am assuming it's durability is exceptional. Overall value? Off the charts! I paid $450 for the pistol, a load assist, a holster, 1 short and 1 full sized mag, massive gun lock, and a mag holder for your belt! This is all contained in the box on purchase. What could be sweeter? During that month Springfield had a mail-in promo to receive 3 more mags and another mag carrier! That's 5 factory mags! Glock, eat your heart out! Read More
