The 9mm XD-E model sculpts Point and Shoot Ergonomics into a sleek polymer frame just an inch wide, for ideal hand and holster fit. The Low Effort Slide (L.E.S.) requires 27% less effort to manipulate compared to striker-fired handguns in the same class. Chambering a round has never been easier thanks to the hammer design, resulting in far fewer slipped pulls, and quicker, possibly life-saving operation when it counts.

So far it has never had a failure to feed or fire. Very easy to rack the slide. I Love carrying one in the chamber, hammer down, safety on. But because it CAN fire double action, al I have to do is thumb the safety off and it's ready to go even with the hammer down. (with the first round DA) I moved from the original XD-S .45 which was 5+1 or 7+1 and i still love that, but I'm most happy with the DA/SA XD-E.
