    Charlie, I changed my mind. Why? I have shot a Springer XD in 45GAP and loved it. I now would like you to buy the XP in 45acp, shoot it, and file a range report. Again, why? I want an honest opinion of the Springfield XD 45acp before I buy one. Regards, Richard

    Well, go w/ the ACP and not the GAP. I don't think the longevity of the GAP is too good. It hasn't been very popular lately...

    Shipwreck, the sad thing is the 45 GAP is a great personal defense round. I do not know anyone, that has fired it, that did not like 45GAP. I know, I did! Regards, Richard

    13+1 in the XD45ACP. The 40S&W and .357Sig were 12+1. The 45GAP is 9+1.

    I was kinda' looking at a "hybred", 1/2 1911 and 1/2 polymer, with a 4" barrel, just for fun. The STI V.I.P fits the bill but when I looked on their website, it looks like they've changed the format somewhat. They are only showing a 10 rd. version.??? Doesn't look like a "wide body" .45 anymore.

    I have a Springfield Armory XD-45 ACP Service Model (4" bbl). After shooting 1911's for many years, I now find that this XD-45 is my new carry pistol. The grip angle and trigger are superb, compared to other polymer .45 ACP pistols. There is absolutely nothing about this pistol that I dislike. You owe it to yourself to go rent one and try it out. I guarantee you will not be sorry.

    I also like the XD45.

    I just bought one about a month ago. I don't have large hands, but the XD grips isn't too big for me.

    The XD's are really good guns.

    Xd 45 Acp

    We have put about 2000 rounds down range with the service and the tactical models--at first I had plans to have a trigger job done and maybe new sights--On the first outing with them I was impressed enough to think in the back of my mind that this might be the new carry and the 5 inch the new home gun--not our first XDs so we knew that the design and fit of them worked well--but the 45 acp was an even bigger winner--End results--give them a try--then make up your mind. Put a few hundred down range before any thoughts of work--the triggers on both guns run smooth as silk now with no work of any kind.
