    Looks better than the original XD, at least. I hated the look of the original.





    Actually, the more I look at it, the more I like it. Hm.

    I don't know. Looks like a bad marriage of an XD and an M&P, ......with warts!

    I kind of like it in a weird sort of way.

    I might get one in the future - if reports on it are good.

    Hmmm. That is all, just "Hmmmm".

    Modular backstraps! Weeeeee! That was sarcasm. I'm not writing off the XD, but I sure like the old one better than this one.

    Just think, a whole lot of folks are going to have to change their ways as far as thinking that Glocks are the ugliest.

    Just kidding...

    The styling seems a bit over the top in what will prove an otherwise decent package. It is almost like they are trying too hard.

    The XD's getting "upgraded"

    Springfield's website is showing a new XD40 dubbed the XD(M)

    New features include a reprofiled slide, deeper slide serrations, removable backstraps, a true ambi mag release, and some other features.

    The XD(M)™ is the only handgun chambered in .40 S&W built to accommodate 16 + 1. For that kind of capacity in a competitor's handgun, prepare to step down in firepower to a smaller caliber
    Hmm, must not be counting the Para P16-40...

    Looks interesting: SPRINGFIELD

    If one comes out that's not in .40, I might give it a spin.

    Looks cool JD. I've been saying for awhile now that Springfield should build the .40 on the .45 frame (instead of the 9mm). Looks like they did it, and chopped out the the excess metal. Nice find.
