    1st review

    This handgun is absolutely one of the best I have fired. I am in the military and have fired many different kinds of weapons. This handgun is very accurate and extremely durable/reliable. It has undergone the same tests as the Glock and HK passing all the stress tests. It ergonomically fits my hand much better than the Glock, that is why I chose it. It will take about any accessory that you want to add to it as well. I have the 4" barrel .40S&W and can't say enough about its durbility, accuracy, and great feel. I highly reccomend this handgun to anyone who wants an incredible gun at an unbeatable price!

    I recently purchased the 40S&W 5" tactical and the 3" stainless steel. I absolutley love it. It is a little heavy in the front but that barrell will take a lot of abuse. Never jammed, i've put about 1,000 rounds through her in 2 months. It is very accurate and a great learning weapon. I've taken my wife out and she absolutley love it.

    I actually have the .45 ACP, 4" model, but I have fired the .40 S&W. Both have an amazing feel to them and my girlfriend is mostly likely going to purchase the .40 for her own CCW. After 7 years in the military, I have fired many different weapons but none have the accuracy and feel as these handguns.

    Excellent weapon. Dead on target. Smooth Action. Easy to handle, comfortable to grip with sandpaper stick on's even in wet weather. 40 S&W the caliber to use. Knock down potential is great, smooth trigger pull, very little kick back. Great weapon all around.

    The Springfield XD (ANY MODEL) is a great weapon. If a SIG and a Glock had a love child, the XD would be it. The best of both.

    I have owned my XD 40 for about two years and have put countless rounds through it with no problems at all. It is one of the easiest pistols I have ever shot in my lifetime. My model aslo has the ported barrell which makes the slight recoil the .40 S&W disappear. It's easy to disassemble and you can put a variety of accessories on it if you like. I am currently in the military and wish I could carry mine over the M9 they give us every day. It's a must have for any pistol lover.

    I owned this weapon for three years, I loved the way it shot and fit into my hands when firing. I no longer own it after it continued to jam with over the counter practice ammo. The gun also malfunctioned once when dust and lint collected in the receiver, I think the dust came from placing the gun down between the front seat of my truck while driving down the road. I got rid of the gun after that malfunction. I know I should clean the gun, but with a name like Extream Duty, it should fire under all conditions, especially lint, dust, and practice ammo.

    SA describes the grip angle as "point and shoot ergonomics". All I know is that when I hold my XD-40, it feels like it's part of my arm. The best pistol I've ever owned.

    As my first semi automatic handgun that I have owned, I must say that I am very pleased with the purchase. This has a much more natural feel than its competition, Glock. The angle of the handle rests more upright in your hand than a Glock, which I feel would make it easier to aim and shoot. It is very simple to take down and clean also. Another perk I found is the left or right handed magazine release.

    Love it! Absolutely the best of the many weapons I have fired. I have owned one since 05 and I have only had one feed issue. I tracked that down to one of the three magazines I got with the weapon. The holster is OK as far as positioning of the weapon on the hip, but to draw is not bad, but I've had better. This is far superior to my M9 I carry with the USAF. Definitely recommend it.

    I love this gun!! I have small hands and it fits perfect. The recoil is almost non-existent. I don't feel like I'm firing a cannon like I do, when I fire a Glock. As for those of you having problems with it rusting, the company can recoat it for you if you contact them. I had mine recoated and have not had a problem since. I also had the springs replaced in the magazines and have never had any ammo jam up in it. Just some suggestions to improve an already awesome gun. My only complaint is the fact I can't find a decent holster for it. Any suggestions out there?

    Luv, Luv, Luv this side arm. I traded my Sig P226 9mm for this weapon. It fits my hand better(I have small hands), has a lot less kick than the Sig and shoots much smoother. Its my favorite "cocktail" other than 1800 Gold! Just as good as the Sig or Glock(lots more kick), but easier to use.

    Best gun un the market hands down. In my opinion anyway. I love this gun, my range scores increased by 10 points between this gun and a glock. It fits your hand so naturally the ergonomics of this gun are wonderfull. Go to the range with your gun, rent this one, shoot them both and you will prob leave your gun there.

    I just LOVE my XD 40, you could not have asked for a better handgun. I jus finish 8 yaers as a Military Police Officer and after useing a M 9 for all those years, the XD 40 blows it away. This by far is and has been the best handgun I've ever owned. My wife even loves it. I was sceptical at first but it didn't take long to fall in love with the way it shoots or how well it hits in my hand. I think I need the 3" model to keep my service model company. You wouldn't go wrong with the Springfield XD 40, IT ROCKS!!!

    If you give a Glock 22/23 better ergonomics, higher accuracy, a better safety system, and make it practically ambidextrous and you've got the XD40. It's been a great competition gun and the research shows it performs just as well as the Glocks in torture tests. The firearm is a bargain with respectable quality.

    Just bought an XD40, the subcompact version. I put a couple of hundred rounds through it this weekend, to get a feel for the new gun. I just was wondering if anyone has experienced something I was curious about.......
    Every single round I put through the gun this weekend had a drag mark on the spent casing, where the pin struck the primer, and drug against it, as the casing was being ejected i believe. I have never encountered this before on any other gun, and it concerns me slightly. Please email and let me know what you have to say, jarrod.norman@gmail.com

    I have been a range safety officer since graduating college in 2004 and instruct all levels of students in the private sector. I have found that this firearm is extremely user friendly, points well, and has a managable recoil in 40 S&W. This pistol comes with 2 hi cap mags, a paddle holster, mag loader, mag holster, cleaning kit and hard case. Not many pistols can compete with the price or overall function of this weapon. As far as accuracy is concerned, you can break 4" clay targets with the 4" barrel in .40 at 100 yards with little practice. Not too bad for a tactical pistol. It seems a little top heavy at first, but after firing, this extra weight helps keep the muzzle down for faster follow up shots.

    This is a gun I woulld recommend any one looking to buy a semi auto. A state trooper friend of mine encouraged me to try the XD. After taking his advice I fired it several times at the range. Seeing how accurate and how well it fit my hand, how well it handled and shot with the 357sig version, I decided to buy one. I got the 40S&W since the store did not have any 357Sig variant for sale. I will drop in the 357 sig barrel from midway as soon as it arrives. I got the 4" version for CC in the hotter months here in Vegas. Although I still carry my S&W1911 45 ACP most of the time with my trusty 38 snub. The XD is a great alternative to a Glock, Sig, and H&K.

    Im a big fan of the XD series of firearms and with the new XD(M) out they will continue to be one of my favorite handguns. The XD40 features the old 1911 style safety and a trigger style safety much of us recognize from Glock. I also like the fact that you can look at the weapon and tell wether it is cocked and loaded or not. There is a cocked weapon indicator at the rear of the slide and a chambered round indicator on top of the slide just behind the barrel. This is good for several common sense reasons but I like to paint the picture that if its 3 AM and you are awaken by strange sounds coming from your living room and you know thetre shouldnt be, you reach for the XD on the night stand and can feel with your thumb that its cocked and there is a round in the chamber, then you can now investigate what goes bump in the night knowing that you are locked, cocked and ready to rock.

I will be purchasing more the XD line of weapons in the future. The one thing that I don't like about the XD is the finish. Wears off to easily, and the slightest bit of moisture and you will know it. But still the best weapon I own or have owned. Hands down the greatest.

    I consider this pistol one of the best by far. I was always a glock owner, but know i have the .40 S&W service model XD. It is much like a glock but it has more safety to it. It has more features than a glock. Two in one feature is visually without pulling back on the slide you can tell if the weapon is cocked & loaded. The best feature by far for me is on the back of the grip where the pistol has an extension that goes in when your hand is on it, this deactivates your safety. Just like the glock, it has a smooth loading and break down.

    So far I've shot three different .40's ... a Sig 226, a Glock 22 and this Springfield XD.

    The Springfield was hands down the easiest to shoot and handle. The Sig was heavy and tough to manage for myself as a novice shooter. The Glock was better, but pulled left because the grip was just a tad to big for my hands. Once I shot the XD, I knew I had found a great weapon.

    It has a solid feel, great balance and an excellent trigger pull. I'm not saying anything bad about the other two guns, but for me, the Springfield was top notch. I really couldn't find anything to complain about on it other than having to pull the trigger to field strip.

    Why that doesn't count against it in my ranking is that the slide has to be locked to the rear before that trigger is pulled. That decreases the chance of an accident to near nil since you are forced to recognize if there is still ammo in the weapon.

    The bottom line on the weapon is that it shoots great and is easy to control. When under stress, that is what matters.

    I bought an XD-9 last year and liked it pretty well with the only exception being the grip. I looked around for a slip on grip but was able to find on. SInce then, a new XD-M has came out with several improvements including the grips.

    Has anyone tried the XD-M yet? I would consider getting another one in a 40 if the grips were significantly better. XD-M is a bit pricey though.

    im in the academy right now. 2 of the recruits chose this as their duty weapons. the staff kinda chuckled when they saw them but function checked them and allowed them on the range. to date, one recruit has changed his weapon completely and the other is waiting for a new one. i have never felt sick to my stomach as i was when i saw this gun jam so many times. both were new. both jammed numerous times in the hands of instructors....DO NOT BUY THIS GUN!!!! get a glock. that said ...hk is good but parts are expensive and customer service has sucked for many years..... they also dont like berettas because of the refusal to update the de-cocking location...ummmm what else.... i think thats it. combined the staff has over 200 years experience. some have worked for companies, all have been in real life shootings....take it for what its worth.... also, this is the orange county sheriffs department in california. ask anyone.. it IS the best.

    When I carry, this is my weapon of choice. This pistol is idiot-proof. In other words, this gun has 5 safety features so that it will not fire and cannot be fired unless it is properly handled. I use a Blackhawk Serpa CQ holster for this weapon. I fired a Hi-Point 9mm for a while (anyone that has used one will know that it is a heavy pistol). I find that there is less recoil with the XD versus the Hi-Point Compact. Right out of the box this firearm will shoot a 1" to 2" grouping at 21 ft (7 yds). I went for about 3 weeks without cleaning my XD and it did not have any trouble firing. Anyone who wants a reliable firearm that is safe and afforadable can depend on the Springfield XD.

    I bought the XD .40 Sub Compact to use in the POST. I am left handed so the Ambidextrious Mag release is great. Having shot Glocks (without ambidextrious release) it was nice to have the ability to perform speed reloads with ease.

    The Mags however, I would like if they came with polymer casing like the Glock Mags. I was having problems with the rounds failing to move up the slide and into the barrel, after stripping the gun and inspecting it I found there was nothing wrong with it. So I looked at the Mag and it was very slightly bent at the top which was causing the rounds to load slightly canted to the right and catching on the corrner of the slide.

    I would highly recommend this gun for concealed carry or back up (sub compact) or for on-duty (standard legnth) or for anyone who wants a good reliable gun without spending a ton of money.

    One of the best handguns I have ever fired and still own. The weapon is made to comfortably fit a large hand and fires round after round flawlessly and on point. The only beef I had with the weapon is I purchased the first models released by Springfield (2004) and the finish on it did not last long. After being handled day after day and useing it often the blueing seemed to be of fragile nature. However I just had it coated with "Dura Coat" and the weapon looks brand new. One of my most favorite weapons and will not part with it any time soon.

    I retired from the Bernalillo County Sheriff's Department, N.M. after 20yrs. and I am now with the Greenville Police Department, Al. where I have been for 17yrs. During that time I have carried all kinds of weapons. I have receantly pursched a XD40. I was very surprised when I fired it for the first time. The way the weapon handled was great. It is very durable and felt great in my hand. The recoil was the same as the 9mm Glock. Another thing that I liked is you know when the weapon has one chambered because there is a rocker bar
    on top of the slide that will rock up when chambered. When the weapon is cocked, a pin at
    the back will be out. ITS GREAT.....GM

    I love this gun. I shot it a quite a few times (a friend of mine owns it) and it was a very accurate, reliable firearm. I just went to purchase one a few months back and ended up leaving with the XD-m .40 and WOW! It's everything you could ever want in a weapon. I absolutely love it and would recommend it to everyone!

    First of all, I haven't seen this gun for sale new anywhere for the above price. The cheapest I have seen is $680!! Second, it is simply a Glock that is advertised as a Springfield. The gun is really kind of ugly and very square and blocky. The grip is large and blocky as well, uncomfortable with the hard diamond checkered grip, and you will need to buy hogue or pachmyar to change that. Not good for small hands. Personally, I do not like the fact that you have to pull the trigger and release the pin to take-down the gun for cleaning. Again...Glock-ish. Obviously it would be operator error, but the potential for a misfire is there. The accuracy wasn't bad, but not great either. I haven't had one jam, but a lot of others have. This gun is definitely overpriced for what you get. You want a deal on a gun, get an M&P!!!

    As a former LE tactical squad member I have used Sig, H&K , Glock as well as others. I have much respect for the Sig Sauer and H&K products -their engineering is excellent however in some types of climates ie salty air, extreme mud/sand they can suffer,..I have owned 2 springfield xd's and found them to be better all around after stringent testing to all others. The XD is more robust internally, extremely accurate and reliable.

    My Glock 22, for me, is the "perfect weapon" when it comes to handguns. However, my friend purchased an XD .40 not too long ago and I have fired hundreds of rounds through it. Ergonamically, the fit is great. My only complaint is the balance. It could be better. I love the fact that Springfield "borrowed" Glock and Sig design for this gun, but they could have added the Glock balance too. Otherwise, a fantastic gun.

    I own the XD-40 and I'll tell you what, Glock lovers. This gun will give the Glock a run for its money. It helps people learn how to hold the pistol with its comfortable handle. Its smooth shooting with great accuracy. I love the XD-40 and would be a great gun for first time shooters. Glock did pave the way for the polymer frame pistols so its time to upgrade to XD lol.

    I've owned my 4" XD-40 for about 2 years now. I've got about 2000 rnds through it and have experienced very few malfunctions. I would choose an XD over a Glock and day of the week. It is an extremely accurate gun. One nice feature is the stainless mags. This is a great improvement over the Glock's polymer coated mags. Over all, the XD is a great gun. Even my fiance loves to shoot it.

    This firearm is definately top notch. It was my first firearm and I am so glad I got it. It fires extremely well. It has an ergonomic grip that fits comfortably in my hand. Even as a .40 it has less recoil then other .40's I have shot. I love the firing pin indicator and loaded chamber indicator because it gives you the ability to know if you are locked and loaded just by touching it with or without looking at the gun. Definately worth investing in one of these torture tested, hard working, reliable, proven firearms.

    I own/carry the 40SW with 4in barrel. I absolutely love this firearm! I have put well over 3000 rounds through it with only ONE jam!!! It just so happened to jam when after firing the first round off in a defense situation. I truly beleive that the only reason it jammed was because i had tofire it upside down at point blank range. The one shot is all I needed though because the 40 caliber round is such an efficient round that does the job! I am a lefty so the ambi mag release is a wonderful feature! The xd 40 is also extremely easy to breakdown and clean out.

    I would 100% count on this weapon if my life depended on it.

    This weapon is workhorse. I have put over 3000 rounds in 5 years through my XD-40 Sub with near flawless performance. I've had one stove pipe using "reduced recoil" training rounds provided by my department. My carry ammo and regular range/target ammo have yielded no problems.

    I find the grip to be comfortable and more natural than my Glock 21 duty weapon. The m1911 style safety on the backstrap combined with the trigger safety are a nice touch. There is a tactile/visual indicator on the top of the slide for "one in the pipe" and another on the rear letting you know the weapon is ready to go.

    It is a bit wider than some other subs and it is very "blocky" in design. Also the slide assembly is very heavy for it's size. Overall though I can carry it all day and forget it's there I just need to wear something a bit thicker to cover it up.

    There is only one thing that really annoys me about this weapon. You have to pull the trigger to disassemble it for cleaning. This really isn't an issue but still doesn't make good safety sense.

    I love this weapon. This is my primary weapon both on and off duty. The dual safety system is wonderful. The slide can not move unless you have positive pressure on the back-strap safety. The weapon will no fire unless you have positive pressure on the trigger safety AND the back-strap safety (no accidental fires). A cocking indicator protrudes slightly to the rear of the beaver tale to indicate the weapon is cocked, and the chamber indicator at the top near the ejection port pops up to indicate there is a round in the chamber. This weapon can be operated in complete darkness using only touch because of this. The weapon has a wonderful feel and weight to it but the grip gets slightly slippery in warm moist conditions or in any condition in which the operator's hands might sweat. This is easily fixed with some grip tape or any other grip enhancement you might like. The kit comes with a hard case, 2 magazines (12 rnd capacity) a belt-slide level 1 concealment holster, a speed re-loader, dual magazine pouch to complement the holster, and a flute for the barrel at a affordable price. This weapon was manufactured in Croatia and is the primary weapon for all law enforcement and military operations in that country. I trust this weapon with my life. Period.

For anyone looking for a level 3 holster for this gun, use an Uncle Mikes sidekick size #28 (S&W Sigma Size), but fits XD perfectly. For mags, just use a Blackhawk pouch.

    When our office opened up their policy to carry our own duty weapon in the .40 caliber range, I went searching for a new weapon. Most guys ran out and bought the Glock 22. Nice weapon, but the slanted handle never felt right in my hands. I remembered my Marine Corps days firing the old 1911's and the newer Berettas. I started watching and review the HS2000 and fell in love with the benefits of the gun. When Springfield took over, I went out and rented the Glock and the XD at one of the local shooting range. Over two days and after firing about a thousand rounds ammo through both guns, I felt I could fire both guns equally. (Yes, this was before today’s ammo prices) The two final things that drew me to the XD besides the 1911 style grip, was first the ammo indicator on the top of the slide. The other was the ambidextrous magazine release since I'm a left handed shooter. The gun has severed me well over the last seven years.

    I bought an XD9 sub-compact and an XD40 full size two weeks ago. Last week I took both and fired 300 rounds out of each right out of the box, out of 300 rounds I had only one misfire and it was due to a bad primer. This is by far one of the most reliable and durable pistols ever made. I highly recommend it to anyone. It is a great alternative to Glock and Sig Sauer pistols, and even breaks down similar. I trust my life with it an you can too.

    I have experience with many different types of handguns and this is by far my favorite. Most shooting incidents that take place will be close range and you most likely will not have time to aim, so the "point-shoot" capability of the XD-40 is very useful and makes this weapon practical for service or personal carry. I was satisfied with my Glock, G-21/SF, but I believe that the XD-40 is an improvement over the Glock and sets a new standard for combat handguns.

    I own the subcompact version and I love this gun. Being left handed it was an easy choice for me to purchase it after seeing all the left hand shooter friendly options like the grip and trigger safety and the ambidextrious mag release. Springfield Customer Service is nice to deal with too, I emailed them about buying a left handed holster for it and they sent me one free of charge. I've only ran about a thousand rounds through it and have had no problems yet. Overall a very nice presentation of the .40 cal S&W in a subcompact frame, no matter which hand you shoot with.
