this is just something i'm curious about: what do ya'll think of the o.d. green frame on the xd? one of the toughest things to find in a shop seems to be a black-on-black xd-9 (or 40) tactical. i did see and handle an xd-9 black w/o.d. green frame, and it started to grown on me, but i passed. just wondering some opinions out there. thanks.

Myself I don't care for the OD, it's not my cup of tea. However I also feel that XD has one of the better OD frames. It is dark enough to not seem too green.

I have mixed feelings about the Bi-Tones too, but for my next purchase I am considering a Bi-Tone XD40 Subcompact. Nice little package and I dont mind the colors on a smaller gun. In thinking about it, the OD Subcompact I checked out at the shop didn't look so bad either.

I think It's all about what you like. :)


Cheers

I love it. But then again, I love green. Green XD, green FAL, wanna get green for my AR.

However, the Glock "green" sucks. Monkey sucks. Sucks monkey. Balls...

All that matters is whether or not you like it.

I guess I'm a middle of the road sort of guy, I have two black and two green. I have to admit, though, that I bought my first XD because it was green (I'm former Army!!).

I agreee, that if that's what "you" like, hey, more power to ya. But with the personal preference angle out of the way, I don't think it's very tactical if SA was trying to go for the "woodland camouflage" idea. While camouflage is very useful in many situations, I don't think the enemy is going to spot you because the the handle of your pistol is "clashing."

I can see it now..."Hey, that tree has a gun!"

Besides, black looks good with everything.

Well, it all started for me, the OD green thing,
when I bought my first one, a Grendal P11 in
.380ACP. Then the next one was a P11 KelTec
in 9mm (Grendal was KelTecs daddy).

Now an XD45GAP and then the other day, I
decided that I had enough OD green frames
and bought and XD-9 with an OD slide.

I really do not care for OD green, it is ugly,
bad looking, chincy, out of date..........??

By the way, Ajames has my slide from my 45GAP
and it applying a DuroCoat Desert Tan on it w/TruGlos.

Man, I am really going to have a bunch of
uglies lying around. Pretty is as pretty does,
ugly is as ugly does, they all shoot and go bang.
that is what counts.

The OD doesn't do it for me. I had the chance to pick one up and also passed. I really liked the bi-tone so that's what I waited for.

If you like it though, then don't listen to what I think... :)

I like the OD, and am trying to decide between XD9 & XD40 in OD SC. I liked the the cut down Service in the other thread, so maybe that instead of SC.

The only definate is OD.

Just go with what you like. The most important thing is that you know you want an XD so you can't go wrong! :D

I don't really dig OD green. I have a XD9SC that USED to be Bi-tone but now it is "Fusion" finished by CC with my own custom touches. I think it looks amazing but some may think it "blingy" (by the way...the word Bling or any version of it is over and should be stricken from our vocabulary) or "pimpish" or whatever.
The important thing is I KNOW it will go bang when I pull the trigger.

I didnt like the all black but then they grew on my so I purchased a XD40SC and I love it now too.

If you like OD then go for it...If you are having reservations then I would wait for EXACTLY what you want. If you hurry and get something other than what you want you will ultimately just go back to wanting what you did in the first place...that is my .02.

Good luck with your decision.

Hmmm, wonder if the Custom Shop could offer to make the frame out of different colors, I can see the NFL, NHL, NBA and MLB XDs coming soon. :lol: :lol:
