    Guys, just learned about this recent trademark by Springfield on one of the other threads. Figured I would put it out there and see if anyone can offer any insight?

    Thanks.

    There's been speculation ranging from.380 to a similar line to the XD-M. Still scratching my head while hoping for something cool.

    Not sure but I spoke to a Springfield rep on Saturday and he said they will be debuting a new gun at the NRA meeting. He wouldn't specify what kind of gun but he also said there will be new variants of an existing gun.

    No speculation from me...

    I always thought trademarks were supposed to be on something that was already in common use. *shrug*

    Perhaps it is the long awaited revolver

    I check HS Produkt's home page and found they seem to only feature 3 guns: the XD, XDM, and a bullpup 5.56 rifle. Could Springfield want to import the bullpup under an XD-type name? I don't think they would, not with the recent release of the Saint (still hate that name).

    The only other thing I can think of that's been touted is the 10mm XD/XDM. But I don't think they'd call it an XDE. Just XDM-10, I would imagine.

    My guesses:
    - Seems likely it's a pistol in 10mm Auto since the CEO acknowledged they were working on one.
    - What are the chances SA would release a pistol with RFID security? "E" for electronic? Nah, I don't see a market for it.
    - XD/XDM with a built-in laser (something like a CT laser grip)?
    - Saint pistol? bleh

    I'm guessing it's not anything in .380 since they specifically poked fun of that caliber when the XD-S .45 was released.

    I could be wrong and it just ends up to be some slight modification of an existing product or something else boring, but I hope not.

    XD "Enhanced"

    Either they fixed the sponge trigger or it's a 10mm.
