I'd like to find some stats on handgun sells by manufacturer. Talking to a few shops they're still in high demand...especially the XDsc. Go to galleryofguns.com and you see that the greater majority of their models are out of stock. I know I'll never give up my XD9sc.
Come to think of it, I don't believe I've seen an used XD for sale in a gun store. I've got a Tactical 9 that I had customized and it will not be sold. Others have been, but not my favorite competition/range gun.
I have one as well. XD-45 4". I was at my local gun shop last week and saw a nice Kimber. I have always wanted a Kimber just never ran across the right deal yet. I asked the store owner what he'd give me on trade for my XD on that Kimber...Told me flat out "Keep the XD", save your money and add the Kimber to your collection....
XDs are just a bit more expensive than say a Glock and M&P, Taurus, etc. People tend to buy what they can afford like they should, but some can afford a great firearm like the XD line and choose to save and buy a lesser like a Glock, M&P, etc. Those people just dont know what they are missing!! Spend the extra buck and get something you will love!!
I am a 1911 45 fan all the way but I really love my XD45 2 tone also...13+1 rounds is great!
I handled and tried the M&P and the Glock and even though it was more money the XD just came out on top for me as a choice. Added Tru-Glo Tritium / Fiber Optic sights and a Crimson Trace....what more can you ask for :hand10:
I have both the xd9 and 45. I use the xd9 in my concealed carry classes and it has had a very lot of rounds put through it. No problems what so ever. That may be why you do not see them for sale. People are hanging on to them.
