Springfield XDe
« on: May 15, 2017, 06:12:01 PM »
Well, I got a chance to rent this gun today. Shot really great.

I am a huge DA/SA fan. The DA pull is like a Beretta 92 with D spring.

I am not a huge fiber optic fan, so I can see replacing the sights with night sights. But, I know what I want :)

I like the way the gun handled.

I have some interest in this gun, but will wait a while to see how its reliability shakes out.

When I heard about this gun I had a feeling Ship would be interested in it.

Yes, I like it a lot. The grip texturing is also nice - no need to add a rubber grip to it, like I usually do on a polymer framed gun.

Hell, I'd like to see them eventually make a fullsize version of the XD with a hammer.

Apparently Bud's hasd a few - I read some guy on another forum had ordered one. They are already out of stock, unfortunately. I guess I'll keep checking the local shop. I was told that they have 20 on order

I just can't get into the gun but there are a lot of people excited about it so what do I know?   :P

It's release has helped overshadow their political "incident".

I keep checking back 2-3x a week at the store - guy finally said he'd just call me when one comes in :P
