    Has anyone seen or have had Springfield's Custome Shop work on the XDs? I'm interested in the finishes they have listed here but can't seem to find any pics anywhere.

    If you haven't already, check out and ask that question on www.xdtalk.com . I know some posters have had their XD's refinished by SA.

    You can probably find an answer to your question at XD Talk.

    I'm a member at XDtalk as well. There is probably someone over there that had SA do some refinishing. (Hey Utah! How are you? )

    I've never used SA's custom shop for anything, since my XD's have never needed any repairs or refinishing.

    I had my XD-9 subbie Gun-Koted by Rich at Canyon Creek. I got the slide colored blue and the small parts colored silver. Then I did the lettering in silvermyself. Here's a picture of her:



    This gun is now my fiancee's. I gave it to her as a Christmas present, and had it colored FOR her because she loves cobalt blue.

    Not only have I looked into them, but I have them for all of my subbie magazines. I have kind of larger hands, and without the Pearce my pinky rests UNDER the mag and is very uncomfortable. My fiancee has smaller hands, and doesn't require the Pearce w/ her subbie. It'll obviously depend on the size of your hand.

    But for people w/ larger hands, I believe thePearce is a MUST have item. And it doesn't really add anything significantto the dimensions of the mag/grip for concealability. But for me, it does addplenty of space for my pinky to "fit" onto the grip.

    Well, no, not right now (I'm at work). I'll try to remember to take some pictures when I get home, then post 'em here for you.

    Well, I remembered to take some pictures after I got home from work. These have been resized and rotated (if needed). Here's the right, left, and top views of my fiancee's XD-9 subbie.

    Thanks. She's sweet looking. My XD-9SC and XD-45C4 look bland compared to her.

    Well, that's my fiancee's gun. And thanks, I'll show her what you said when she gets home.

    I have an XD-9 subbie, and an XD-9 service, both in "bland all black" attire. They're carry weapons, nightstand weapons, IWB holster weapons, etc... so I don't want any "fancy" colors on them. Black is good for my every day defense needs.

    Before I saw your pics I thought the only colors for guns was black, silver and walnut. I've seen guys with Gun-kote and/or Dura coat(?) but they were OD green or desert dirt tan. There's all sort of colors now, even pink. That blue looks nice.

    By the way...Springerprecision and pistolgear have some nice sounding trigger jobs (claimed to be drop in) trigger upgrade + trigger bar, the combined effort reduces take up and over travel. The nice thing is you get to keep your original XD parts without mods to them. On xdtalk:trigger bars
