    I have looked my XDS 45 over but see nothing to loosen on the rear sight to be able to adjust it. the point of impact on mine seems to be quite low. i have been compensating at the range with it but would like to try to make some ajustments. i also have a XD 9 and it shoots great,it is right on but i don't think it has any way to adjust it either. any comments or suggestions on this? thanks in advance!

    The XD'S that have adjustable rear sights are the tactical or competition series, and the XDM series also if I'm not mistaken.

    I don't think they are adjustable. I will have to look at my wife's to see for sure. Hers shoots dead on by the way. Have you tried putting it in a shooting vise? Not questioning your abilities, but when I first bought my XDM, I was all over the place and I pride myself on being an awesome shot. Took some time to get used to it and now, I can shoot it in my sleep. I just wonder if you may need to put a few hundred more rounds through it. Hope you get it resolved. That's a fine pistol you have.

    Interesting post, I just shot the XDs 45 and was straight but very low consistently as well. With my new XD9 mod 2 it goes right where I want it. I could be trying to over compensate 45 round but it's nice to know I'm not the only one going low. Let us know what you find out.

    Thanks for the replys and information. i still own my XDS 45 and after changing my grip somewhat and a little practice i am getting better with it. i was gripping the XDS just like my XD 9 and after admitting the XDS 45 is going to have a little more kick and upward snap at the end of the gun and also experimenting with the trigger pull i can usually keep it on paper at 20 yards or so and closer i can do much better! Thanks guys again for Your responses, i almost traded it but i am now glad i didn't!...these are great concealable pistols.
