I was just wondering if anybody knew if Springfield has or is going to make a subcompact XD in the "flat dark earth" finish. I have the 4" .45 and would like to have a matching backup.
Thanks

    I haven't seen one and watch these guns pretty close. Wife has the XD-9 subcompact in Bi-Tone and I have the XD-40 4" model. I have been looking for an XD-45 in dark earth myself.

    If they don't come out with one you can always have the frame finished with Duracoat to match the Flat Dark Earth.

    Hey Maalox
    There is a .45 in that finish currently on the auction page...but yeah your right I never thought about just having it refnished. Is that expensive to have done?

    If it's the one from Heritage Firearms I'm watching it. I just purchased a M&P from them and it was a smooth transaction.

    I had a slide duracoated for less then $100. One online supplier charges $165 to Duracoat a pistol frame. I would try and find someone local to save the shipping & FFL charges. If you do a google search for Duracoat you will find the colors and also the people who coat firearms. Some pretty neat rifle camo combinations out there.

    I like this one.

    Thanks for that picture Maalox do you or anybody else know where I could see pictures of a Duracoated XD? I went to a site that had duracoating and there are some pretty neat finishes but I dont know what they would look like on my gun.
    thanks again
