    Except that the Sigma doesn't like low quality rounds when you rapid fire them. At least the first gen doesn't.

    I have one of the current gen (9ve I think it is) and a G19, both eat the cheap stuff all day long. Only real difference to me is the trigger on the Sigma is the suckage.

    But yeah, no regrets with XD either!

    (I am just a cheapskate!)

    ok, i had no problem buying the gun, so i am the new proud papa
    of a Springfield XD-9 Service Model. I got 2 16 round mags, and
    have 2 10 rounders on order, for when i go to california.

    Came with a rather cheap holster, mag holder, and mag loader.
    all of those made in israel. A barrel lock made in china.

    I bought a highnoon conceal holster with it.



    I believe the image below is the tactical version, whereas, i have the
    service. But it IS the same color scheme. I like it.

    Here is mine. Notice the one difference... a new feature added to the 2008 models.

    Hint.... it's a lot less GLOCK like that they use to be.

    Well... cocked and locked is a term for 1911's and this isn't a 1911, but yes... 1 in the chamber, 13 in the magazine, safety on.

    I think a weapon with no serial numbers is illegal

    My two cents: Buy the M&P 9c, or better yet the newly released M&P 45c.

    I really like my XD service. I shot theXD tactical but really like the balance and size betterof the service. I shot both about the same. I put in the Powder River safety and match springs and now that trigger is very nice for a combat gun. The stock trigger was just OK but now it's sweet. I love how it eats any ammo and zero failures in over 1000 rnds.

    I'm not a big fan of the nickel slide on the XDs but they do look better in person than in pics. A few of my friends have one. I think the nickel slide is a little heavier than the regular slide as the balance feels different to me, but maybe that was just psychological on my part. I haven't shot any of the nickel slide versions though, just handled them.
