Help me find my next carry pistol



I am looking for

Semi auto caliber 9mm to 45 but prefer 45
Reliable
Single stack
Light weight
Compact size - barrel length is less important to me but I want a thin gun with a small height. By height I am referring to the distance from the top of the rear sight to the bottom of the grip/magazine when measured perpendicular to the slide. Something around or under 4.5" height would be good.
Anti-corrosive materials. I am OK with composite but coated/treated metals and stainless are good options too, albeit heavier. Simply blued steel is a no go since I have a very efficient cooling system (sweat).
Not shiny
Prefer at least one manual safety along with an intergraded grip safety.

Definitely my favorite for CC. I got to shoot Chalice N Gunderland's Solo CDP and is very nice.

Glock 36 in .45

Compared to other glocks, 36 on the right

Only thing missing is a manual safety

9mm is out now as well if you decide you want a 9mm.

XDs.
Mine: shoots great, conceals great.

You can pick up an extended mag 7rnd.
You can attach the Pearce grips on the 5rnd.

Pistol shoots great, but it does have some recoil. Shooting it single-handed is not a party, but you can manage the pistol one-handed. I am not as good at multiple shots one handed. I still shoot that way half the time with it- I may not get to pick the hand I shoot it with or have the opportunity to shoot 2 handed under duress.

The dimensions are identical so they had to make the barrel a good bit thicker. Those are also unloaded weights. With 6 rounds of 230gr rounds, it will be considerably heavier than the XDs9.

Given your preferences, the best options for you will be either the XDs or some 1911 variant, like the Springfield EMP.

Not a single stack, but Beretta PX4 in any of the calibers you named is an option. Not too heavy fully loaded. There's also the Nano.

I like the sig too. The dimensions are good on it. I have Taurus slim .40 that fits the same dimensions but is damn snappy to shoot.
