    I bud of mine just bought one new at a gun show for $430.

    I steered him to the XD, I have XD45 Service and love it. The recoil on mine is no worse than any other .45 I've shot. I am very accurate with it (I've got about 1200 rounds through it), and it has never failed once. It is my primary carry weapon. XDs are some of the best polymer pistols made.

    Offer him $350, as unless he has very few rounds through it, that isn't a great deal. It's not a bad one either, but it all depends on what kind of shape it is in and how many rounds he's put through it.

    Cheers! M2

    Thats close to the price of a new one. Offer less and if he doesn't take, add a few more $$ and get the XDM.

    1. fair price.
    2. recoil is not bad at all. My wife shot mine (9mm) and didnt like it only due to her small hands. It has a fairly fat grip. Not too fat though.
    3. Nothing wierd about the XD platform at all. It shoots true pretty much out of the box.

    BUY IT!!!

    I have one and it is a plush shooter. Very well made and the tolerances are very tight. $400 seems a little close to retail-used so see if you can't chisel him down a few bucks. Other than that I would say go for it because it is a great gun. Here's mine in an Alessi IWB on my desk at exam time.

    Used XD's are a dime a dozen, 400 is to high. They are decent first pistols.

    I am with everyone else on this one. Price is a bit high, talk him down a little and buy it. As for the recoil, if you have shot a
    40SW in the past and had no problem than it will not be a problem now. My XD45 compact is not much bigger and I can't tell the difference in recoil between it and a 1911.

    The recoil isn't bad, but sharper than a 45 (I have both a 40SC and a 45C). If you have larger hands, the extended mag is the way to go as it's easier to grip. Harder to conceal though. The 40 will most definitely kick harder than the 9. High power self-defense loads will be interesting, but not intolerable as in something like a Kahr PM40. I have a Kahr MK40, steel frame, and I cannot shoot Double Tap out of it. Too hot and I get FTE/FTF from the recoil forcing "limp wristing". The Double Tap shoots fine out of the 40SC though.

    Try shooting a 3" 1911 with full power SD loads and say that! Much more "fun" than the 45C.
