I just bought a like new XD S&W40 4 inch on GunBroker. The guys at my gunshop were talking bad about that ugly, old looking gun. The gun has a matte finished but had not been used much. I checked it out and fire a couple hundred flat and hollow nose 180 grain bullets through it. It shoots great and worked perfectly. I wanted a service sized handgun that holds more ammo than my Khar P40. The big plus is I paid 300 hundred bucks less than they wanted to sell me a S&W sigma. HA HA Now I need to find some extra magazines.

Good for you. The only XD I own is in .45GAP. I got it a few years ago and really like it. My favorite dealer has a new .40 cal for $489.00....tempting!

got mine last week 450 with a promo tac light. but mine is a sub compact. The guy at you gun store is pretty critical. It doesn't matter what the gun looks like but you can't argue with performance. Springfield is known for making good guns. Congrats on your new gun

Congrats on your new-to-you pistol! Hope it works well for you. "Ugly, old gun" is a highly honored term generally applied to Glocks only. You got a great deal!

I also picked an XD subcompact with the XD Gear and the Insight X1L. It is a great package at a very reasonable cost.

I have an XD 40 Service and absolutely love it. It handles very well and I like the safety features. At this time it is only second to my Springfield "Loaded" 1911.

Congratulations and enjoy.

Now I need to find some extra magazines.
If you want new magazines, midwayusa has them on sale for $21.49 (regular $23.99). Not a huge savings, but if you're going to buy them anyway...

I haven't shopped around so I don't know if you can get them cheaper elsewhere. Just got Midway's flyer in the mail today, and the Springfield mag sale caught my eye.

Love my XD45 service !!!! I'll be homeless before i ever sell that gun. As far as finish goes, that can always be redone. Look into Robar, a guy on here has a sweet XD done in it.

I love my XD40. Mine has the stainless slide, and I consider it downright beautiful!

My XD40 is my EDC gun. I have the dark earth with black slide. Fits great in my IWB High Noon holster. I carry 2 extra magazines in a Galco pouch. Magazines are available pretty much anywhere they sell guns and such. Every place I've seen them they run $24.99. You can probably get them cheaper, but if you pay shipping it's pretty much a wash.

Good luck with yours!
