Deal Details

Last Edited by charlesmd April 6, 2012 at 08:30 PM
Sportsman Outdoor Superstore is once again having a sale on the Springfield Armory XD Guns. Sale is you get the normal $25 shipping free use code XD FREE SHIP. There are of course transfer fees from your FFL. Beginning of March they had it on sale for $380 plus shipping for a quick time (went away fast) so this is $5 cheaper. Just ordered the Subcompact 9mm XD9. Also to note, there is no 3% surcharge to use a credit card.

Rep'd - this is a solid gun...cheapest I've seen is $380, but $20 shouldn't deter you if you're in the market. I've been eyeing these to try to decide if i want the XD or XDm

I've had the xd 9 service, xdm 3.8 compact, and now have the xdm 4.5". I would recommend the XDM over the XD's. If you think you might want the xdm down the road, you should go ahead and get it. I didnt want to spend the money at the time and went with the XD, and buying what I really wanted down the road cost me.

I bought the subcompact 9 and it is definitely alot harder to shoot due to its size vs my m&p pro 5". I'd only get it if you want a smaller gun.

I went from the service xd 4" to the xdm 3.8 compact. I was going to get a regular 3.8 but went with the compact in the event I wanted to carry. It's basically two guns in one. I still found it too large to carry for me, and I did not like the feel of the grip with the extensions to make the grip fullsize. The getting extenions for extra magazines is also quote expensive, usually comes out to $40 a magazine.

I sold the 3.8 compact and went with the 4.5 and although the grip is supposed to be the same there is something about the one piece full size grip that feels far better. You also have to have no mag extensions. One I decided I was not going to carry the 3.8 compact, there was no reason in keeping it over the 4.5 I would not be carrying either.

If I do decide to carry I wil get an LC9, or wait for the springfield xds

and the differences between the xd and xdm are: match barrel, match trigger, changeable backstraps, high capacity. I'm not sure if I noticed a difference in trigger or barrel, but the grip is much better and so is having 19rds.

For you owners of the subcompact (or compact) - how well would those fit a person who has tiny hands (we are talking 3 3/4 ring and can sometimes wear larger children's gloves -and some women's small gloves are too big). Don't want to shop unless there is a substantial chance it will fit, getting my wife into a firearms shop is like getting me into a women's shoe store. shake head Also how is recoil for a novice (probably for concealed carry, and we have a law enforcement firearms instructor to teach her). TUVM.

I would say it is a good CC gun. It is still pretty wide. A Ruger LCP or Keltec are smaller and easier to conceal. It is definitely a good quality gun though.

Put gun in the title and see if it can get into the SPORTS groups (?) for more hits. A lot of people have alerts for 'gun' deals.

The XD(m) also comes with a few more useless accessories (do you really think you're going to carry around a separate paddle holster just for magazines) too, plus everything DaVinci said.

I have the full size 19+1 rd XD(m) with the 4.5 in barrel. It is without a doubt my most accurate and comfortable pistol to fire. It's a phenomenal weapon and I'm sure there will be many others who agree.

BTW I paid over $700 for mine the day Springfield released them, so this is definitely a deal.

Any current or past owners care to chime in:
Noticed these are DAO, anyone comment on their personal experience with the double action trigger pull?

I don't want to sound like a wussy, but:
I was a happy owner of a CZ 75B SA, and one day I tried a beretta at the range to see what all the hub-bub was about, and I was horrified by the DA trigger pull...
At least with a DA/SA, you only really have to worry about the very first shot, and even then if you're not keen on the double action trigger pull then you can always manually cock back the hammer manually.. But I've yet to try a DAO pistol.

You just need practice and experience with it (or any other DAO, theyre pretty much all the same in this aspect, eventually you'll get used to it and it won't feel like such a long or heavy draw.
