So I went to shop for a tactical 9mm bitone but ran into a used 9mm service standard finish for 270, yeah 270. I didn't check it over cause I know I would have bought it. Hell I might go back tommorrow but I'll still want the tactical and do I really need 3 9mm XDs. Temptation is a dirty word.

there is no such thing unless you plan on refinishing it

One day I will pick up a XD-Sub in 9mm and then I will have 3 XDs. Although they are in the same caliber and all are the XD models, each will have a different "personality" if you know what I mean. :lol:

USN RM3,
Do you mean the GAP when you say new XD or just a new XD.

For the other poster who said you can't get a Tactical model unless you plan on refinishing it, I totally hear you! I recently picked up an XD40 Tactical model (all black) but really wanted a two-tone. What pi$$es me off is that Springfield's ads in the gun rags clearly show a tactical model with a stainless slide but they apparently don't offer one for sale. :evil:

I'm thinking of sending it off to Tripp Research for a chrome job on all visible metal parts. I've seen service models done that way and really think it looks cool. If I like it on the Tactical, I may send my beloved XD9 service model off to get the same thing done.

Speaking of XD Addiction, I want a 40 or 357 that I can carry concealed and have a good deal lined up on a gently used Sig P229 two tone with night sights. Still, I can't make the decision since I'd almost rather have another XD 40 or 357 Service model. I have no use for the little 3" pop-guns since a Service model conceals about as well as a subie. XD is such a good value even if I have to spend $250 for a chrome job and night sights (of course, if the Tactical and my other service gets the special treatment, the new one has to get it as well in the interest of fairness to all). :lol:

I have an XD sub 9 for ccw use. Only had one problem with it; it shot 6" low due to mismatched sights. Sent it back to SA and they fixed it and sent it back. They also took care of shipping. Gun shoots great and has never jammed whether I use Walmart practice ammo or Win 147gr. Ranger Talon (former dept.'s duty ammo)

I wanted a subcompact 40, but after 8 months got tired of waiting, so I bought the 9. Since I carry only one gun at a time and the "duty" ammo I buy is inexpensive for me (academy range), I will forgo the 40 (would like to have it tho).
