    Exclamation New XD45 COMPACT.

    Just saw this while browsing through the SA website, thought you XD fanatics (that's you Euc!) would like to know:

    From the SA website:

    Two Guns in One:
    Trying to decide between a smaller carry gun and a full size duty gun? Well the latest 45 ACP XD Pistol is two guns in one. This new 45 is a 4 inch barreled pistol with a shortened grip frame for easier carry. But each gun comes with two magazines. A 10-round compact magazine and a 13-round Service Model magazine with XD Gear X-Tension™. That means a simple change of the magazine converts this 10 + 1 round compact into a 13 + 1 round service model. And of course, whether in compact or full sized form, the XD's Point and Shoot Ergonomics™ means that big or small, the XD fits in your hand like no other.

    I'm still waiting for them to offer a Bi-Tone 45 compact... Oh well, I may just buy a 4" full size Bi-Tone and a black compact and have myself a little switcharoo... besides it will be more fun trying to justify to the wife.

    Kind of cool that SA is basically taking a mod the some XD owners are doing to their XD 9mm and 40s. And producing a factory pistol. I hope they do the same with the 9mm and 40 S&W.

    this concept of using a longer mag in place of the shorter mag is not new. glock does it well. also, kel tec p11 has the same type of setup in were you can use longer s&w mags in the p11. i know in the glock it works well, even without the mag extention cover part. i think you can but an after market longer mag cover for the glock. in the kel tec i don't know, never tried it.

    I'm looking forward to it....I considered getting a used 21 and having Bowie Tactical Concepts do a grip reduction and grip shortening on it, but you can have the same thing with the xd Compact for three to four hundred less.....
    Stay Safe...and always check your six!
