If they made the grip shorter you would just basicly have a XD and a whole set of new magazines. I carry a 3 inch XD9 with a 13rnd or 16rnd mag and I was able to slip this 3.8 XDm with 19rnd mag into the same smartcarry holster and it did not print at all. I dont think I would carry this one all the time since I am so used to my SC XD9
I've seen a DIY mod to take the grip of the Service down to the size of the SC with a dremmel. SC mags fit for CC and the extended mags bring it back to regular size for plinking. While maintaining the 4" barrel. I wont be chopping mine up any time soon
While looking for the pics of that chop job (never did find them) I found this in a thread over at XD Talk.
Keens Depot in Bardstown, KY is selling XD-40/9 SC, for $379 until April 15
Updated in same thread by another user as, sale until April 19th including the Service (4" barrel).
YMMV, but thought I'd share. Apparently the deal went out in a local flyer but you can always call and see if they'll ship.
Keen's Depot / The Kentucky Gun Company, 8 OLD BLOOMFIELD PIKE, BARDSTOWN, KY 40004, 502-248-3594
Great gun. I got the 3.8" in 9mm a couple months ago, shot tons of rounds through of all manufacturers and qualities, 100% fire rate. I think it feels a tad more balanced than the full 4.5" too. Definitely better than a Glock (which I love also). I got it for $570, so this is a great price, and I strongly encourage anyone to snatch this deal up while you can.
