XDs-9 was released this year. Should be available in the second quarter but anyone familiar with the XDs-45 knows how that worked out. The outer dimensions are identical to the .45. The walls of the grip have been beefed up to accommodate the smaller mag of the 9 and the barrel walls are thicker to accommodate the smaller 9mm bullet. Which to me means the gun will weigh more. The 9mm will hold 2 more rounds. They are saying the .40 will be one more year before release.
