    I had a good laugh when I read this.

    It may be a "breakthrough" for Springfield but Glock already has this in their G30 and G30SF. Of course there's no mention of Glock in the article.

    Of course not.. Though the XD-S is more in line with the Glock 36 because it is a single stack. BUT, Glock still had it first! :D

    It's a breakthrough because it's smaller than the 36, buy a lot.

    G36:
    Length: 6.97 in.
    Width: 1.10 in.
    Height: 4.76 in.
    Barrel Length: 3.78 in.
    Weight: 26.98 oz

    XDs:
    Length: 6.3in.
    Width: 0.9 in.
    Height: 4.4 in.
    Barrel Length: 3.3 in.
    Weight: 21.5 oz

    1 round difference in capacity.

    I'd rather "buy a lot" of Glocks. ;)

    OK, so maybe it is smaller than the 36 and a lot smaller than the 30 but still...
    I found the article amusing.
