I am intersted in the new XD 40. Seems like much better ergonomic that a glock and better trigger. Anyone shoot/own one? have any comments?

I've got a third generation HS2000 in 9mm. Very good handgun. Do a search using HS2000, I don't think you will find any negative reviews. The HS2000 is still out there, right around $300.00-$350.00 NIB.

The local shop got 2 of them, after fondeling them a bit, they are definately more comfortable in my hands than a Glock IMHO, I like the extra safety in the back of the grip also. If someone trades one In I will be sure to take it out and give it a try...

SA did take over distribution. The HS was plagued by ejector problems. I don't know if SA fixed them or not. Any ideas?

Never had any problems, ejector or otherwise with my HS2000 Aviator [img]www.milpubs.com/aviator.gif[/img]

Picked-up a 3rd gen HS2000 a couple of months ago. Fits my hand better than my Glock 23 and is just as accurate. Best $300 I ever spent.

The XD [b] [red]IS[/b] [/red] the HS2000 with the added make-up that Springfield Armory put on which raised the price up by around $130.00 I have a 3rd Gen 9mm HS2000 and I will swear to its accuracy. Has all the neat features of the 1911, Glock and Walther all rolled into one gun. But the best thing about it is the availability of hi-caps. The hi-cap for the Beretta 92FS and the S&W 5906 will work with a little modification. Having seen pics of a Glock Kabooooommm where the chamber was basically torn apart, I compared the thickness of the side walls of the chamber with a Glock 22 and it is just a hair thicker. With this observation, I am quite hesitant to get one in .40 S&W. The only thing that I don't like about the HS2000 is the trigger slap. After a few hundred rnds, you will start to feel it on your trigger finger YMMV

I asked a similar question a few weeks ago and was told that the XD40 had not been released yet. When did it hit the shelf?

a few weeks ago.[;D] seriously, it's only been available for about 3-4 weeks at most.

So, I have a question then. If SA is selling them, can I still purchase the HS2000 model for a much lower price?? I was looking into getting one soon, but don't want to pay SA's price!

I have both the XD-40 and the XD-9mm in stock. I'll make any of you AR15.com guys a hell of a deal on them. 5% over cost and you pay the freight. $393.75 plus $15.00 for overnight shipping. Thanks I know this is not the Equipment Exchange but since some of you guys wanted to know where to get one I could not resist.

Red, It is still possible to find some HS2Ks, but they are few and far between. Hop over to the [url]www.HS2000talk.com[/url] board to find more info on where to (hopefully) buy one.
