Pathfinder03 Any new rumors of Springfield Armory releasing the XDe in a .40?

Hawt Sauc3 anyone know what the value of an XD 45 (circa 2010) barely used is worth. Cool platform, but after getting some 1911s it's not my cup of tea.

Bad Santa Traded the .45 XDS for a duplicate in 9mm... less recoil on injured wrist... faster follow up hits...more ammo capacity... what's not to love...????

Noticebly thinner than Glock 26 with only 3 less rounds on board...

Plus it actually looks good... Glocks are functional, but ulitarian ...the XDs is a sharp looking item..

6471 Recently developed a taste for the two tone XD's... traded a trusty old Glock 27 for a new bi-tone XDs .45...
Would have preferred it in 9mm... but still feel I traded up..
Slide release...just like S&W MP's needs rounded for us old timers who were taught "combat" reloads & just can't unlearn and pull back the slide on a fresh magazine...only other complaint might be because of the recoil spring ...it takes a very good grip to rack that slide .. could see many ladies not liking that particular chore.. but it's a keeper..! ! !

6471 Springfield XD's & variants have to be one of THE best.. under appreciated handguns made..less expensive than Glocks but such a better product..

Youtube "Glock KaBoom" or ask any armorer what a Glock KB is. Scary that the problem is so well known that is has an abbreviation in the business.

We may all be forced to reload in the future and I sure won't have any gun that needs virgin brass.
This problem may or may not be limited to 40 and I don't care. 40 is my choice and Glock will never be in my collection again.
Yes, this design flaw is causing injuries.
I could be wrong but I thought only the XDm's had a fully supported chamber.
It was a long time ago but I remember reading that the Glock's ate the brass which was my argument for spending the extra on my XDm, since then picked up a XD-S too

My EDC kit as it currently stands. clips loaded with 9mm 125 grain jacketed hollow-points.
This is an original XD Service from 2004. Has handled thousands of rounds and is still straight as can be. Gonna add night sights one of these days

walkswithdogs I don't have a lot of experience with handguns but I have had my xds 9mm for about a year and a half and have been nothing but happy with it. Easy to carry, accurate and easy to shoot. If I lost it today I would buy another one tomorrow.

XD Compact

I carried a Glock at work for many years (not by choice). Upon retirement, I purchased an XD Compact in 40 cal....Best out of the box pistol I have ever shot. Great gun, no changes/additions and none planed. Couldn't be happier with the XD, Now planning on buying their 1911 compact.......

theTway101 Anyone else get a mod2? I shoot my XD9SC so much better than my glocks that I'm thinking about selling one to get a mod2 . . .

I'm like, damn, in 8 wks I could buy some leather and tools and teach myself to make holsters! Any ideas?
Here you go:

Both choices are available.
FWIW, I have a JM and it's a great holster. Very robust, great ergos.

Grayman 724 Hello, I've have several XD's. I like them a lot. But for some reason I just can't like them more than the Glocks that I have. Not saying that Glock is better, they seem about the same to me. I just like Glock better. The XD that I have at the moment is a .45 acp tactical compact in dark earth. It's a good shooter and all, just don't get packed around like my Glocks do.

recon I like that these holsters are made of leather instead of plastic. Cuts down on the scratching of weapon.

Gunner65 NEVER trust a friend... ALWAYS look it up yourself... Go to Hodgdon's website and look at their reloading data link...

To me that sounds like a lot considering I use 3.8 grains of 700X with 124 and 147grain bullets
I have not used Blue Dot for YEARS, since 2000 but if I remember right its a hot powder

Heck I only use 5.3 of AutoComp for my 40 reloads.
07-26-2015 08:20 PM
Gunner65 I know I said CrossBreed in the beginning of this thread... But since then I have sold my CB's and bought Alien Gear ... I have to say Alien Gear is a great holster for not a lot of money!
