Bob Michetti: I've owned Glocks, I've owned Sigs and Smith & Wesson, My XD 40 is the best
gun i have every owned. to say it sucks shows your lack of knowledge in
firearms, Oh and PS lose the tongue ring it makes you look like a pot
Daniel Ramos: .....So it's a good gun. Got it.
I don't care about the history. TOTAL for mine was $507.00.
BUT...i see i'm commenting 2 years after this vid was published.
BLACKoppr: ok first ya mabye u can shoot 100/200 round in a glock and one jam up but
in the xdm u can shoot 1000/2000 and none jam if u were smart u would see
that xdm is beter then glock eney day i dont care if glock was here first
and all that bullcrap but xdm was made bete rand stronger and i would be
behind xdm eneytime over a glock and plus xdm it just look more badass
then the glock
Chris Kelly84: I do like my xds but I agree... It's like colt importing glocks and putting
the colt logo on it and upping the price. It would be nice to get the xds
for $250 :)
IF IT BLEEDS WE CAN KILL IT: In reality this guy really loves Springfield XD's. He's just trying to get
views and possible subscriptions. Thumbs down.
Bbzije1: Well ya but they are still outstanding firearms. All firearms are grossly
Eddie Sandoval: Yeah, but what's wrong with the gun?
sfd323: Other than the branding issue, you haven't given much of a reason why its
not a good gun. I'm interested in hearing more.
Randy Durger: Illin-oy. Not illin-ois. Jesus Christ. Unbelievable to me how many people
pronounce the S at the end. It's silent dude. CMON.
Saku19: I post this video, when people go..."Omg, look at muh Ecks-Dee!!"
Earl Turner: almost no seriously taken instructor is using or advocating the use of the
xd...that should tell u something right there..
anthony clark: Since when has the xd been a 600-650 dollar gun? The answer is never. The
xdm on the other hand is 600-650 dollars, but is most definitely not an
hs2000, so what is your point?
Piimp F. Kennedy: a lot of people bought these batman guns during the hype which explains all
of the hate hahaha.
Blatant Abuse: If your opinion is that the XD is equal in quality as the Ruger P series,
my opinion is that you don't know just how bad the P series is. My opinion
is that the XD is of higher quality than Glock. It is just as reliable,
has a more robust and well made frame, and significant advancements in
ergonomics. And it's prettier. I think they used to charge for the XD
what the market would bear. Now they've gone down significantly if I'm not
mistaken. I saw XDsc's for under $400 this weekend.
Chris Kelly84: I think it's a good gun but I don't like how they put Springfield on it....
If they really wanted to they could make them here and then put an American
company on the gun :) it's just like how Winchester had some of there guns
made in Japan... What if colt started making guns in Brazil? It just
wouldn't be the same even though they may still be good :)
MrJumbolegz: I can't stand SA, they just ripoff Glocks and outsource everything.
Jonathan Black: I have owned a lot of guns in my life. As far as the the semi-automatic
piston, this is the best one. I will keep my .45 Tactical for as long as I
live, and I have a feeling it will last the whole time. Springfield XD's
are even recommended by some cops. The XD is a great gun and I do recommend
Aaron Tooley: Booohahahahaa. I thought the Glock crowds were bad, but sound like the XD
crowds are worse. Just own them all like me. I own Glocks, M&Ps, Ruger, Sig
and a Taurus revolver that I love and 1 day I'll own an XDM. I go through
different fazes of carrying one more than the other or carrying one because
of the situation and the caliber I want with me. XD has left a bad taste
for me at the moment because of ignorant know it alls at a pro XD gun shop
that was trying to scare me and argue that my glocks (plural) and M&P sucks
and was going to blow up on me one day. Spew that ignorance to the weak
minded and inexperienced to sale your brand somewhere else. It was such
arrogance that I was ready to make 2 big purchases but left with my money
with me. So don't sound stupid by saying your gun is the best. There are a
lot of good ones out there and to each his own. A more intelligent
statement is to say "I Prefer because" I dont prefer because. There was
some good points in the video like in my opinion the XD is overpriced about
$50-$100. Some may say more, some less. By the way I carry a SR9C and can
out shoot most of my buddies with their competition guns. Ever wonder if it
is just the individual?
Adrian Rubi: Where it's made should not matter. What matters is total reliability,
Durability, and Accuracy. 100% spare parts availability matters. If all
these are satisfied then a gun or any brand named gun is worth it.
Chip Moore: Sounds like your issue is with the company and it's history (or lack that
of). I have have a few Springfields (XD,XDs) and IMHO they are equal to or
superior to many of the major firearms (Glock, Sig, FN etc.) so popular
today. As for the company it has been my experience that the customer
service is excellent. I would highly recommend a Springfield XD to anyone.
PipeLawyer: I completely agree with you! It's basically an illusory company
perpetrating a soft fraud. The reason they get away with impunity is
because of how financially supportive they are of the shooting sports, and
therefore political/lobbyist power play.
J.T. Humston: Of course SA is located in Illinois not Ohio. My mistake.
Dom b: do you like the XDM series?
mike: Lol.. well? Is that the only complaint they are not made in the U.S.?
Incognito Na: So are you complaining that the gun is actually Croatian, or that USA can't
make an equally good gun?
AFAIK Springfield shouldn't have put any of the US marketing on the gun and
leave it with a name most can't pronounce.
victor diaz: So why does it suck?
krešimir šumiga: So XD sucks because they are made in Ilinois instead of Massachussets?
JRindestructible: I just bought a Springfield xds 9mm....its a POS! Slide fails to reset
after every other round fired....yep definitely not american quality.
Oh...and its a post recall model..smh...
THenry69ss: With all due respect sir, the Ruger P series is absolute crap. I've
personally owned 2 p89's and both of them after around 500-600 rounds had
safety failures. Put the safety on and the gun still fired... Not good to
say the least. I've had my XD40 for right at 3 year's now and sent well
over 1k rounds through with no issues. ( Regular cleaning and lubrication
only. Its also not modified in any way) I've yet to have a jam or failure
to discharge. And neither one of the 2 "lemon squeezes" have failed. To sum
it up I will say from an experienced shooter the Springfield XD40 is, in my
opinion and experience a far better and safer pistol than a Ruger P series.
Also I don't like Glock the mark up on a Glock is far higher in GA than the
gun is worth. There is nothing wrong with the Glock, I do not like the way
they feel nor balance in the hand. But as you stated I'm not saying don't
buy a Glock or a Ruger but from someone who has been shooting for right at
20 year's my money would go to Springfield or Sig Sauer. Or if you want to
fancy there are Colt 1911 or Kimbers are very solid 1911. Thank you for you
opinion sir and hopefully you will read my message all the way through as I
watched your video all the way through.
Safet Sabani: Ok I have to say this to you. I'm from Croatia and gun you are talking
about is called HS 2000 XD. Only in USA it's called SPRINGFIELD XD. It's
not because HS Produkt wanted it like that to make it more expensive. Price
is still the same. But name is not so reason it's more expensive now is
becuse SPRINGFIELD ARMORY want it to be more expensive. My point is
that SPRINGFIELD XD or HS 2000 XD are the same gun but those 150 - 200 $
more is what name costs. To you that gun sucks and reason I didn't say
anything about that is because I respect your right to your opinion .
Steven Durham: They may be a little pricey, but they are well made guns. Just asked the
BenB8290: Basically, your complaint about the XD is that its overpriced because its
Croatian made and used to be much cheaper, because SA hadn't slapped their
name on it? First off, what's the issue with Croatia? Because its a third
world eastern European country? I guess AK's suck because they're from a
second world former Soviet republic. Secondly, who cares if SA puts thier
name on them? They import them to make money; we're a capitalist society.
Just as your criticism with the Ruger P-series; you personally don't like
them. That's all. You admittedly stated both systems do what they're
supposed to do. This is purely opinion driven on your part. Objectively,
XD's do not suck.
mopar tech: I have several pistols and I was looking to add to the collection. so the
guy at one of the local gun stores was telling how great the XDM is. I am
not one to just buy a firearm just because someone tells me how great
something is, THEY ARE SALESMAN, and that's there job. So I went to the
range where I am a member and rented a 9MM XDM. took my Glock 17 and my HK
PV9, and my SW MP all 9MM. now I shoot a lot, every week. And after renting
the XDM I wish I had my my back. we all know the reputation of Glocks ,
love them or hate them there great pistols. The HK PV9 and the mp series
are much better shooting pistols. when you have them all laying on a bench
going from one to the other XDM is the looser.
Paul Goodell: XD's are overpriced and inferior to Glock. Are Gen4 Glocks pos's now since
they obviously took cues from Springfield and started offering features
like interchangeable grip inserts and dual guide rod springs? At least
Glock didn't go so far as to offer a "1911 grip angle" feature so it still
feels like you got your wife's freakin' hair dryer in your hand. LOL
Chris Smith: Capitalism
Michael Hess: This video was very helpful. Reason being, it helps a new gun owner like
myself by educating us on the difference between a gun that is worth the
price they are asking for and ones that aren't. I guess my question would
be, are Croatian guns poorly made and that's why they aren't worth the
asking price? Thank you for the Intel!
Dave Smith: Weak analysis.
Big Dave: Well sir thank you for making me feel terrible about my XD lol. IDK man I
love mine I have the XD 45 and love it but hey whatever man your more
educated about it then me.
Ryan Holbert: the only thing i got from this video is that youre mad springfield took
over the pistol, and made it their own.
Dixie Land: To be honest Glock is way overpriced too
bigbird21313: you suck, springfield are good quality. you wish you could have a gun
company...if you did they will suck...hahahaha i payed 450.00 for my xd 40
full package brand new...shoots like a champ.
GardenState2012: Too many butt hurt people are crying and bitching lol. XD made a fortune
selling crap to dumn Americans. No Western Army uses XD as their pribably
sidearms but Glocks, H&K, Beretta, FN etc. are used by 65% forcesa round
the world (G 17 gen 4 is the primary side arm for British armed force).
jesusalba1989: Well I just educated the more I know ... Thanks
Sam Don: No gun should be over 300.00 dollars. But if a company makes a product and
the demand goes up. The price goes up duh.
boogie27896: so they suck because of the price huh. judge the gun on its performance.I
have a couple taurus guns tcp and a judge i have rugers and keltecs, xd 40
is my all around favorite out of them all.i like them all for differant
reasons but if i have to have one pistol its the xd hands down
Steve McC: I would suggest that you first define "suck." Then give at least 2 reasons
why it sucks. Then you must defend each reason with a valid argument. This
seems like a lobbying campaign, not an analysis.
DemocracyOfHypocrisy: I hope no one makes their decision on whether or not to buy an XD based on
this guys opinion. I paid $575 after tax out the door for a brand new XD
.40 Sub-Compact. Which was about the same or cheaper than the Glocks. Over
$600 and for me anyways, you're getting pretty close to Sig & FN price
range and I wouldn't buy a plastic gun for the same price as a Sig or FN.
But the XD is not overpriced.
Ryan Tucker: I got distracted by his tongue ring during the whole video.
ScottsGunChannel1: I have a Springfield... Its from 1939, and its the only one I will ever
have, unless I find a good 'ol Trapdoor... My cousin let me shoot his brand
new XD40, and it stovepiped on the first round... It had crappy recoil
and it felt cheap, but that's the only info I could gain with the 1 shot I
