For the past few weeks, I have read just about every thread on this XD forum and am reading everything I can On-line about the XD and XDm. I have narrowed my choice down to either the Bi-tone XD40 Service Model or Bi-tone XDm40 3.8. I am wondering now with the release of the XDm and everyone wanting th newest and most improved toy. Has the XD come down in price? and is the XD a better value now since the XDm has come out? I have found The XD I am looking for about ($519.00 Bi-tone) and ($480.00 matte finish). The XDm I am looking for is around ($669.00 Bi-tone). A $150.00 difference?? I am always looking for the best value in everything I buy. How does $519. for the XD 40 Service Model compre to what you paid for your XD or what you are seing at gun stores and gun shows for the xd?? How does 669.00 for the XDm compare to what you have paid or what you are seeing in shops and shows??
