Springfield Armory 40S&W XD M/4.5" Barrel/OD Green/Stainless
by Ron A Date Added: Sunday 21 December, 2008
I was able to hold the black version of this pistol in my local shop and really liked the balance, the feel in my hand, and the smoothness of the action. When I saw the OD/SS version at Bud's for the best price ever, I ordered it immediately. When it arrived, and I was able to really get a good look at it, I was even more impressed. This is the easiest to field strip auto pistol I've ever seen--you don't have to remove the take-down pin or pull the trigger to remove the slide. Inside, the finish is superb--not a tool mark to be seen and the surface is as just as smooth as the beautiful satin stainless exterior of the slide. The fit and finish of the parts is exceptional and better than I've seen on more expensive guns. One design feature I particularly like is the action of the barrel cam against the take-down pin just before the closing slide goes into battery. The cam action against the take-down pin causes the barrel to lock tightly against the frame so that there is absolutely no play at all. This has to be part of the reason this is such an accurate pistol. I particularly like the look of the dark olive frame with the matte stainless slide, but I suspect that all the variants of this model will have the same quality, so if you can't wait for the OD/SS version, get one of the available models and I'm sure you will agree that Springfield has given us a sensational value in the XDM series. As always, the best place to buy is Bud's!
