I just bought a XDm 3.8 compact 9mm in all black but now wish I would have gotten the Bitone... Is it worth getting the same gun in Bitone but .40 instead of 9mm? This could be an gun addict question but I really love the Bitone! Opinions please. Thanks

do what I did (no bitone when I got mine last year)...

get your slide and barrel refinished by CCR for 100$+shipping

thats a great idea, I have a xd45acp that the bluing is wore a little that Id like to have re-done, and I do LOVE my 3.8 bi-tone 40!! HIGHly recomend getting one or two or three! lol do they have any color options or is it stricktly blue or stainless?

Would refinishing the barrel lose the warrenty? Does the 9mm and .40 use the same mags??

Refinished barrel= $100
3 extra mags= $90 with shipping

$190...Might as well get the Bitone .40 for $400 more right???:confused::):)

I called James over at XD-HS2000 to ask him how the night sights installation was going on my slide and also told him about how I wish I would have got with the Bitone version. James said "If you want I can refinish your slide to make it stainless steel just like the Bitone" I was thrilled when I heard that and said please do!! James is a great person to talk to on the phone and has great customer service!! Thanks again James!!

lucki, I own 5 XD/XDm's now and when the 5.25 comes out in .40 it'll be 6. My son shoots a bi-tone XDm9 in competition and they are great looking guns! The only thing I'd suggest is that if you can get your hands on a .40 before you buy just to see how it works for you, do it. The .40 is not for everyone; some people shoot it very well, some people hate the 'snappy' nature of the higher pressure round. I compete with .40 in an XDm and I love it.

The .40 and the 9mm operate in the same pressure range, the .40 is not a higher pressure round.

I used to own the glock 23 which is a .40 cal and I shot that just as good as my 9mm xdm

This really is a great forum. First I herd of the 3 extra magazines. I have wanted a xdm9 compact pretty much since I bought my xd40 in April. Kinda appropriate I find this info in a gun addict thread. Haha SOLD may just pick it up this weekend.
