New pistol from Springfield

Post by The Twizzler » Wed Jun 28, 2017 6:37 pm

I just read about these in Rifleman Magazine the XD-E a concealed carry Springfield XD but with a hammer. It holds 8 rounds of 9mm in the flush mag and 9 with the pinky extension mag. 3.3 inch barrel and 1 inch wide with a total length of 6.75 inches. In the pictures it appears this series of the XD does not have the grip safety that the other XD's do.
Thoughts?

below Hammer less compact XD for comparison

When I read the title I was hoping it was the 10mm XDm they have been promising....

I'm not wild about the XDE for no real reason.

Also, I'm not a fan of SA when you research the company and its CEO

Why?
I don't understand what's wrong with striker fired guns.

I think he meant SA as in Springfield Armory. I was hoping for the 10mm too..... but I do kinda like this. Dunno why.

Looks like final action on the bill will be tomorrow. We will see how things go.

About the pistol, I tried it at the writer event where they released it. We fired about a dozen different early production (not proto's) guns running through scenarios, in informal competition, and just plinking. I later got a T&E loaner for a magazine review.

Here's the online version of the review. Ignore the poor web formatting. Not sure what's up with that.

It is. It's going to have "Touch the Rhino, Feel the Rhino" stamped in the grip. The package will be complete with Rhino lube and a pack of these weird latex Rhino skin textured grey colored barrel protectors. I saw pics from Show Show! I swears it! :clownshoes:
