    How do you like that sub 9mm? I have both the XD .45 and 9mm and love them both but am looking at the sub for possibly better concealment.

    Stainless 1911's are of US manufacture. Springfield closely monitors the stainless as it is not as easy to produce as carbon steel.

    Blue 1911's are not. The frames are made by Imbel.

    The XD series is made in Croatia.

    All of the guns are assembled in the U.S., and goes through final inspections in the U.S. by Springfield.

    As for Springfields rifle lines, I can not say as to the origin of manufacture.

    I can't say enough good about this gun. From the way it feels, to its handleability for follow up shots, to its awesome accuracy (especially for a 3.1" barrel). If I were given $1000 to buy a new carry gun, it would be this one.

    The XD sub is great

    I have shot mine quite a bit well over 2k rounds which is a lot for a little sub Counting i havent shot it in the last 2 years

    What is the shame that it was made in Croatia? The HS2000 is a fine weapon, it is the standard sidearm of the Croatian Army and Police.

    I just prefer to keep my money in the US when Possible. That said, I bet the gun would cost a good bit more if it were made here, So I probably couldn't have afforded it.

    My Springfield stainless loaded 1911 (PX9151LP) says "Made in Brazil - Imbel" on the frame?

    I LOVE my XD9sc!!

    Croatian made.

    The kit that comes with most XD's that include a holster and such are made in Israel. My buddy has an XD40sc that was made in Israel. Atleast "ISRAEL" is stamped on the frame.

    Wonderful gun!

    All Springfield slides and receivers (1911s) are made by IMBEL.
