    Does that bother anyone else? I'm stubborn about "Made in the USA". I also wondered about
    quality. Sure, Springfield is known for taking care of their customers, but I don't want to be
    forced to use t...

    Checked out the web site. The barrels look like chrome. I take it you have done this to your
    Tact. gun? It there a real noticeable difference like they say? Now with my Ruger on the recall
    list I can ...

    Dirk...I just did the same thing today. Same gun. Chomping at the bit to try it!!!!! It sure
    feels comfortable to hold on target while pulling the trigger. Tell me how you like it when you
    get a chanc...

    Yep.I just picked up a 9mm Bi-Tone XD service model tonite.My kid can shoot IDPA with that.
    I'll have to send it off to Springer next too.May have to shoot that gun some myself...

    It's been my experience that XD's don't like SWC ammo. Not that some won't shoot it, but many
    of them don't feed it well.It'll feed anything else. I shoot a .45 in IDPA, so I don't need to
    worry about...

    Hmm, is there any sort of bushing that stabilizes the muzzle? If there is, have a look at any
    wear patterns it's producing. It's be a shame to spend the time and money to get it done if
    it's only goin...

    Love my XD .45. :D I've owned 2 of the service models, one compact and 1 tactical- all in
    .45.In 9mm, I currently own a tactical model and have had the sub compact too.The .45 service
    model is my favo...

    Are you sure it's broken?If so, SA will likely replace it under warranty.If the slide just
    isn't locking back after the last round, you might be thumbing the slide release lever...

    I've owned the XD in a .45 tactical, .45 Service, .45 compact, 9mm tactical and 9mm SC.My
    favorite is easily the .45 service model.The XD's are super relaible. My daily carry gun has
    around 7,000 roun...

    Caliber selection is a hotly debated thing.I've owned 6 XD's, and I personally prefer the .45.
    Some will argue about how some smaller caliber rounds can stop well.No one argues about the
    stopping powe...
