As much as I like Springfield, they have a boutique, fashion-brand feel. They introduce an idea and if they don’t get immediate results they can it, morph the product line, and three months later do it all over again. It’s actually tiring to me. It’s gotten so bad with the lineup they show on their new website that I feel my love affair has a finite life. I have 13 SA firearms, for the record.I do apologize for re-creating “yet another” caliber war. I’ve read through too many over the years. My original question was sincere as I was surprised that Springfield was not even making 40sw.
However, I do appreciate the input and did not consider some of the benefits to diversity of keeping the 40.
I still might off-load my 4.5 XDM in the future, but will definitely keep the 5.25 as my competition shooter.
