It has about 4.5 pound trigger pull which allows for accurate shooting every time.

How does it fit your hand, how do you like the sights, how difficult is it to rack the slide, how would you describe the trigger pull, and how would you describe the recoil?

The XDS is a good size for small hands. the slide is firm but not difficult. The recoil is a bit snappy but not to bad. the trigger pull is about 4.5 pounds. It is double action only.

How reliable is it?

I find it very reliable with good ammo. I do not shoot any of the foreign brands, USA ammo only.

Was it easy to take down and clean?

This gun is very easy to take apart like all Springfield striker fire guns.

Would you recommend this gun?

Go out to a range, and shoot it. Many ranges have gun rentals. try it and compare ti to other guns and find one you like.

Anything else you would like to share about the gun?

The XDS holds 7 + 1, but you can get the extended mag so it holds 9 + 1. You can also get the pearce grip extension for the 7 + 1 mag if you like a place for your pinky. Depends on the size of your hands. The pictures show the 3 different magazine options.
