i have an XD9 and i love it, its a great weapon, and Ive talked several people out of buying glocks and turned them onto the XD. as for parts, i have never encountered a problem with the weapon, and ive been through about 3000 rounds, and if it came down to a simple spring, i would swap out for don's or canyon creek anyways, why get stock. go to a shop that has a range that offers you to try weapons before you buy, shoot a glock, then shoot an xd, you will notice the difference right away. and you will buy the xd. amazing weapons. just as a side note, i have a $1200 Sig i picked up about 6 months before the xd, love the Sig and if you want the best buy a Sig, but as nice as the weapon is and as accurate and practical as it might be, i carry the xd.
I just sold my Glock 22 and picked up an XD40. Much better choice in my opinion. Better grip angle. I kept having to bend my wrist to bring the sight up on the Glock. The XD is point and shoot, dead-on.
I'd rather have 15 rounds instead of 12, but the smaller grip is a much better fit in my hand.
I do wish there were more aftermarket parts available. Maybe as time goes by Springfield will loosen up on the control they seem to have. I picked up an extended mag release out of Canada, but that's about it.
I carry a XD40 jut got it, with the exception of getting used to the new weight, I love this weapon so far, a blind mans gun and very safe, you can tell if it's loaded, tell if there is one in the chamber, without pulling the slide back which can cause a jam in itself.probably the best novice carry weapon yet. and great stopping power!!
Went to the range for the first time today with my XD40. I also took my glock 9mm and I liked my XD better. I was able to group my shots better and it felt better in my hand. I should of bought my XD first.
I have an XD 40 SC. It's a great gun. Goes bang every time, eats whatever I feed it, hits where I aim, feels good in the hand, has a great light trigger, and did I mention that it's a great gun. My son-in-law and I were out making holes in paper when they were up for Thanksgiving. We both have XD 40 SC's and had a blast. I was able to quick draw mine and shooting from the hip area in rapid fire fashion, I was able to put all 12 holes in a 9" circle around the bullseye at 20 feet in about 3-4 seconds. I wasn't really trying for speed, but I was trying to hit the target. And that was without the laser grip that I got for Christmas. It exceeded my expectations.
I love my XD40sc so much... I bought another! I keep one on me and another in the bedroom! Looking to get trigger jobs on both eventually. The Crossbreed holster is so comfortable that sometimes I forget I have it on!
