Manufactured in Croatia, the Springfield XD-9 Tactical replaced my Glock-17 9mm. If you haven't squeezed a few off with this gun, you're missing out.

    1st review

    Springfield has had 15 years to improve upon what the Glock was lacking... and the Glock was not lacking much. Read up on this firearm at It discusses this firearm extensively.

    I love this gun. I love the “extra safety’s” always afraid my lil one will get a hold of one (he dose know gun safety and we keep them put up) but less so with my Springfield with the way you have to press all at once. love it

    I love this gun it is a smooth squeeze, accurate, and feel the extra safety is important for a personal weapon.

    This firearm and the Smith & Wesson M&P40 came out around the same time. I went out and bought the M&P 40 knowing that I would be the only one around with it. One of my good friend bought the XD 9 and was bragging about it. I invited him to go to the range with me one day so we could compare. The XD won hands down. Next day, traded my M&P40 for an XD. Love this pistol.

    Never have had any failures or jams, even when limp-wristing a dirty weapon.

    Decent enough accuracy for combat.

    A wide range of aftermarket accesories, including a trigger kit which vastly improves the trigger.

    An excellent buy for those worried about the glock kBs or needing something that fits their hand better.

    Had a chance to fire this weapon over the weekend. One word can describe it: OUTSTANDING. The added security features are a huge selling point. It is a fine pistol.

    I have a XD 9mm sub-compact and carry it everyday. I think dollar for dollar this is the best overall gun made to date. The saftey,the 16+1 capacity,and very accurate. And at a price of around $500 dollars you can't beat it.

    This is my favorite hand gun. Reliable, accurate and you cant beat the grip safety for fast draw and shoot

    This is the first XD that i have ever owned. I bought it from a co worker who was selling it to get rid of it. I have never fired a weapoin that is as comfortable in my hand. I have been caring a Sig Sauer but will be switching to this the next time qualification roll around.

    The entire line of XD handguns are awesome. The technology and thought process in engineering these personal weapons has gone above and beyond perfection. as you will see in my photos, I have the XD 45 ACP Tactical. I had the opportunity to fire 9mm service pistol and qualify with it and shot a 98.4 at the Rutherford County Sheriff Department Range. Overall a great handgun. Definately resomended for purchase. For those of you who are not familiar with the XD line of weapons, here is a link to their site. They have a gun for you, Whether you are looking for an amazing CCW, or a 13+1 .45 APC, they meet all your needs.

    When I went to replace my last 9mm (a s&w sigma) I took my time an shot a lot of different guns. I couldn't find a gun that fit my hand better then this one. I have about 1500 rounds though it at this point (but I have only owned it for 5 months now). I have had one problem where the spent casing was not ejected all the way and stopped the slid from coming all the way forward. Of course I had shot about 500 rounds since the last cleaning, but that was the point: to find out at what point it will jam.

    I really enjoy my XD-9mm I am able to share ammo with my Sig-226 9mm and 9mm ammo is cost effective for me. These two hand-guns are currently my favorites, and they are both effective and accurate. End of story.

    This Xd-9 is very accurate, The barrel length allows for a cleaner shot. i have had no problems with mine. I am sitting on about 7500 rounds shot throught it. You can get them for less then $610.00

    With all due respect to the people who gives this a 1 star rating, the Glock 17 lacks one feature and that is the safety which Springfield cleverly adds with this firearm. I have never been more pleased with the way a handgun shoots, and with the Tactical version, the grips for exactly the hand of the shooter and the two Tactical Holsters that come with it, this is, by far, the best firearm have had the pleasure of firing! Thank you Springfield Armory for making this handgun and if you do not own one, I highly recommend you find one. By the way, I advertised my Glock 17 in a Seller's Journal and couldn't get rid of it for anything in the world with 4 magazines, including 1 32 round mag. For kicks, I advertised my Springfield XD Tactical and had calls the very day the Journal comes out and am still recieving calls! I tell them it was sold the first day, but it makes you think, dosen't it?

    Two words, "natural pointer." There is not another gun on the market that has a perfect hand feel than the XD. Add the Tactical's 5" barrel and you have a very accurate, low recoil, natural pointing, comfy tack driver. This full size 9mm is a pleasure to shoot. Pure comfort food of the handgun market.

    This was my first handgun purchase. I shot about 10 different guns in my price range and this one won hands down. Safety features better than a Glock, low recoil, point-and-shoot grip, simply designed, and many raving reviews from people who have put them through the wringer. This gun is wonderful.

    I love this pistol. It finds my smaller hand very nicely. It's accuracy and reliability has been great. I have the 5" XD 9mm. I love the extra safety features for my own peace of mind knowing when one is in the chamber and when when it ready to fire. When it counts all you have to do is feel for the lever to be up and you know you are ready to go.

    I school we had glock 17 & 19 to train with. One of my classmates owned the xdm9mm and let me use it one weekend at the range. After firing three rounds through it, i said he won't get it back. I've owned it every since and love it. I carry it with me everywhere. I love how it fires and it's just as durable as a glock if not more. I shoot more accurate with it . the trigger reset and recoil is very nice. Mine holds 19+1 so if an active shooter situations happens or multiple assailants, I should'nt need a xtra mag but i keep one anyway. always the plus one rule...
