I emailed SA yesterday about a 5in ("Tactical") XD-9 with a stainless slide; a configuration currently only offered in .45 GAP(). here is my email and the reply.
Hello, I am wondering if there is a possibility that you would someday produce a 9mm XD bi-tone in the 5in. tactical version, and how far in the future would that be if you do intend to produce it? You currently only produce a 5in bi-tone XD chambered for the .45 GAP. I know there would be a market for a 9mm version.
Thank you for your time and I would greatly appreciate a response!
Don’t expect a 9mm 5” Bi-Tone in 2006. That very well may be something for 2007, but nothing is decided yet (it’s not even March). We do get quite a few requests for the particular pistol though. Let me know if you have any additional questions or concerns.

so i guess all the bi-tone fans can do is wait for '07
