Hi gang, I decided to go back to the 45ACP platform, but wanted a pistol that can be concealed easily (I had the fullsized HS45/XD45 but at 5 foot 6 inches I found it a bit hard to conceal because the grip was long). I found that my local dealer had a new shipment of HS45 Compacts and I immediately bought one! I got it today and it is SWEET. Here's what it came with: The case Open Sesame! The complete kit The Pistol It's roughly the size of a Glock 19, and the grip is just right for my mitts. It holds 10+1 rounds, so I was excited to carry it. I took it to the range and decided to give it a workout. I fired a few boxes of Armscor ball 230gr through it and it went very smoothly. Not a single jam or misfeed. Groupings were combat accurate, but that's my fault, I got used to the Sig GSR C3 trigger, I have to reacquaint myself with the HS45 trigger. I also fired some MagTech Gold JHP +P's through it, and man, this ammo is a bit iffy on my list. Accuracy was great, by this time I was bit used to the trigger again, and grouped within an inch and a half or so...but damn, this load is LOUD (I was already wearing SureFire EP4's and I STILL heard it) and when we turned down the lights, the fireball was approximately 12 inches or more! The best load I found for this was Cor-Bon DPX's. They feed very well, and the recoil was amazing! It felt like I was shooting standard velocity rounds! Accuracy was also amazing! Notes: Although the XD45 Compact ships in the US with a 10rd mag and a 13 rd mag with sleeve extension, the HS45 Compact ships with 2 10rd magazines. The light rail is the same as a Glock's, and fits most tactical lights very well. (Shown here with my X300) Will add photos of my holster setup tomorrow as well! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
