I guess if someone really wanted to nitpick for something negative to say about the Mod 2, it's heavier than some other guns in the same size class and the grip is pretty slick. It's still an improvement in every category over the original XD. Reliable, nice trigger, comfortable grip design, and I shoot it better than my XDm. I did have to put Talon grip on it, but I do that to most of my pistols anyway.
Haha yea I polished that thing for hours.
