Just to help correct a small spelling mistake. Text beneath the XD-S image. “Not the removable cover plate atop the slide.” should be “Note”.
Thank you for the article. The blog and the forum are excellent resources.
Purchased the 3.8 yesterday. Will be my everyday carry. Love the flexible safety options, intentional double action sold me and I love how this gun feels in my hand. Craftsmanship is outstanding. Looking for a holster if anyone has a tip. I’ll check out the Crossbreed as referenced here.
I used their Serial # recall verification tool and came up positive. Printed the FedEx prepaid label & sent it in. Hopefully all gets resolved. I really enjoy my M&P. My other firearm is the XD-E 9mm 3.8
