    U messed w/ the safety, trigger and rear sight - U mentioned something about some internal differences - but as that is a photoshop, there is no way to see any of that...

    Doesn't exist - Its the green frame photoshopped with the silver slide - I wanted to see what a green frame w/ hard chromed slide would look like.

    Well, in the beginning of the year, I saw a new green 4" 9mm XD selling for $385 at a gun show. I almost got it, and when I came home, I was wondering what one w/ a silver slide would look like.

    Anyway - the XDs have since gone up - all those "free" accesories sure have driven the price up. Now, the are around the same price as a Glock. And, to be honest, I'm not really into an XD anymore. For $385, it would have been a steal, though... If they had stayed that price... Then who knows...

    OK....ok.....

    ....nobody sees it....changes are:

    1. Full length dust cover
    2. Verticle rear slide serrations.
    3. Front serrations removed.
    4. Extended grip safety for better engagement.
    5. Thicker and more rounded trigger guard.
    5. And yes, Wanderer...no articulated safety trigger.

    There's more, but you can't see it.

    Well, I already mentioned 4 & 6, and earlier today I saw the change in the slide grooves. But, I don't have an XD - so, changes don't really mean much to me.

    Talking the XD is ...

    I think the XD is a workhorse of a pistol the way it is....almost, except I would like to see a different grip texture & different sites offered as stock instead of the dim "GI" style that come standard. And drop the so called "free crap" the mag holder, holster yada,yada,yada and roll the $$$ over into upgrading the XD itself.
    Other than that... I wouldn't change a thing... :smt003

    Gotta agree. The XD is a great gun. But the "free crap" can go. Give me an extra mag instead. Although I did manage to mount the cheap-ass holster in my car, which made my 4+ hour car drive into the mountains this weekend a bit more comfortable.
