    S.A. gave these out a couple years ago for corporate christmas gifts that they gave out to the industry. I heard the production run was less that 300 and was only run for one year. I do know that they were so limited that I was only able to get two of them and even offered to buy 100 of them. By the time I git mine all of the run was already given out.

    On my website I am doing the Google thing where they change out the logo, only I am changing out my XD cover pic. So I brought out both my Milk Chocolate XD and took some pictures of them. These were given out in 2005 so for a 4 year old candy they are in perfect condition. This is the teaser so I will post more later, I can only take so many at a time before the lighting will melt them.

    The specs:
    Full size scale model 1:1 of XD-40 Service model
    it even has the serial number

    Cool!
    You did not have to trash the wrapper, did you? What did it come wrapped in and boxed in? How much did they cost when you bought them or were they given to you?
    Thanx James.

    Well on the XD pictured I did have to open the wrapper. This is like a pound and half of solid milk chocolate, so when i broke the plastic wrapper the aroma just hits you especially if you have not had any chocolate in a while. You could actually smell it across the room. I still do have a sealed back up, but in all honesty these are over 4 yrs old so I don't know how long they will last which is why I wanted to get the pictures. I am going to post the unboxing but its just a box with tissue and a plastic wrapper. I am thinking for fun I am going to install night sights on it.

    Of course, it would taste much better if it was in the shape of a Glock... :)

    Ok I added the pics of the box/wrapper. And to think these have been hidden in a drawer for the last 4 years. Does nay one know if it would be safe to eat? How long does chocolate last, so far they have not dried out.

    I will now have to bring out my other rare XD`s the ones marked as SA-9 and SA-357 not XD-9 or XD-357.
