My new gun! .45

Went out and got me a springfield xd .45 acp this week. Couldn't shoot it till today due to time and ammo around here. Finally got some ammo today and gave her a try. I am impressed! Love the gun, pretty accurate at 25 yards. Love the feel of it!

The XD's kick all sorts of ass. Their pull and balance are fantastic.

My XDM40 is a nail driver at 30 yards. Very probably the best shooting pistol I've ever owned.

Congrats on the purchase!

Its a whole different feel than a Glock mainly due to the grip angle, it can throw some shooters off but that can be fixed with practice.

If it feels good in the grip and he can shoot it straight, who cares?

I have a XD40 Service, so nearly the same as that XD45 Service. Great gun!

I carry a xd 45 service, I hate to say that after 500+ rounds the guide rod is starting to show signs of wear like the slide is slamming back to hard and making it cut notches into the plate that rest against the barrel.

Contact Springfield. I've put 1300+ through mine and no issues. XDTalk.com, lots of guys have put way more through it with no issues.

Lemon, perhaps?

My guess too....I've got a 5" XD .45 that i've put 1600 or so rounds through, with absolutely no problems at all. I've also got a 4" XD .45 (Service model?) that I carry....I've got 500-600 rounds through it with no problem at all.

I also had an XD .357 SIG that I had around 600 or so rounds down the pipe....no problems with it.

Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them.

My thoughts too.


But still a damned nice gun.
How many rounds will it hold?
