Springfield XD-S vs. XD-S Mod.2: Overview of the Updates

I thought they also lowered the bore axis on the Mod.2?

Regardless, I'll never have a reason to give up my Mod.1 - I love the waffle grip, and I love the gun. I wish it were a little lighter - my Hellcat is noticeably less weight, even full-mag to full-mag - but other than that, I've got 1,000s of rounds through it with zero issues and I love it!

I dislike the Mod 2 version for two reasons:

1. No interchangeable back strap.
2. The grip texture feels slippery in my hand.

I also prefer my 4 inch model to the 3.3 inch version. And I have no problems securing the grip safety when shooting the gun.
