I just put an XD service model in .40 cal on layaway at the local gunshop. I was teetering on the Glock or the XD
After handling both and I went with the XD
Now just the wait until I get to take it home!!

I think you made a good choice!

I like everything about the XD better than the glock.

It's a great gun!

I have been searching but can't find the answer to this
I swear I remember a thumb safety on my XD before putting it in lay away and I am still a few weeks from getting it.
I don't want to be a pain and stop at the gun shop and ask to look at it
But I am curious if the XD .40 Service model could have a thumb safety. every search that mentions one talks about the .45acp
The day I put it on lay away I looked at several different pistols and don’t remember 100% sure mine has the thumb safety, I am 95% sure it does
Does the .40 Service model have a thumb safety?

The thumb safety is available as an option on the xd .45 Service model.

Springfield Armory

Not sure if the it is an option on the .40, but the Springfield page only shows it for the .45

And, as always, I am no expert!

I just purchased an XD .40 service, 4" and was not afforded the option to add a thumb safety... Not sure that means it is not available, but the process I went through did not include that option...

Either way, it is an awesome pistol!!! I'm barely on day 4 of the "you must wait 10 days before you can pick up the pistol you worked very hard to afford" California waiting period...

Can you tell I'm growing impatient? :twisted:

Yup no thumb safety except for the .45acp model. It was only added to that model to meet some requirements of certain law enforcement agencies.
