:eek:


well, skateboard tape and fragile adjustable rear sites definitely do not increase the value of a combat pistol. i would assume the price would be around $350 tops.

Wouldn't be too bad if somebody hadn't taken a milling machine to the slide. An XD40 is not a match grade gun, and has no need for target sights. Personally, I'd give $300 - $350 for it. The grip tape, magwell, magazine base pad and trigger parts kit are all reversible, the screwed up slide is not.

If it makes you happy, then you know you didn't give up too much for it :)

how can i safely remove the grip tape and what chemicals can i use to get the sticky off without doing something to the frame. I traded a Bushmaster Carbon 15 pistol for this straight up so im thinking i didnt come out to good on this deal.

value is realative to who you ask, as well the acessories, sights and etc that arte the gun. personally a stock xd .40 service model is worth more to me than MSRP. 17,000rds and still going strong, multiple training courses, eats everything i feed it, accurate, and easy and fun to shoot.

now the pistol would be of less value to me than a standard xd just to me personally, and this is why.
1) i prefer the 4" service models
2) i don't like/ have a need for adjustable sights/ fiber optic on my handguns.
3) i don't like trigger jobs on fighting guns.

however if this is a competition set up it should be good to go.
the grip tape is nice, and i have experimented with it and used it a bit on my xd, the 3m outdoor step tape to be specific, the mag funnel is nice too.

the overall value depends on the person as well as the context in which it is used. i think that you made a great trade, the pistol type ar's are ridic IMHO so you did well, and i would have made that trade in a heart beat!

The XD Tac. is an excellent choice for uspsa/ipsc Production Class. There are some guys running them for Limited Class too. A trigger job on an XD can be made as close to a single action as you can get without it being a single action. This one looks like it was set up for Limited: it has what looks like a mag. extension, a magwell, grip tape and target sights and its in .40 which is the caliber of choice for Limited Class. Even though the grip tape may look ugly its incredible effective and helpful when shooting competitively. Its a nice firearm you got there and infinitely more usable than what you traded for it...you did well. Now do yourself a favor and find your nearest uspsa club and have more fun with a gun than you ever thought possible.

A used carbon 15 sells for about $800, $950+ new.

OK. That's a decent trade, and you get a FAR more useful weapon.

no that's not a fair trade. the 3g i phone is $99 new (maybe $50 used), plus $200--you'd only be getting like $250 for that gun.


i wouldn't sell it for less than $350.

Come on, guys, don't you know what custom work is worth?

A STOCK XD is worth $350 all day long.

It looks like it's been customized by Rich Dettlehouser of Canyon Creek Custom.
http://www.canyoncreekcustom.com/ ..........and it looks NEW !

The rear sight work alone runs $300. The front sight runs another $40, the action job $135, the magwell is $100 - $125, the extended mag base pad, $35. There are probably more items inside the gun that add to the package. Even with just these numbers, the total is $960

Here is a page from Rich's site that shows what they sold for new:

http://www.shop.canyoncreekcustom.com/category.sc;jsessionid=45AFCECA114092809F099CEBFC99C6C2.qscstrfrnt03?categoryId=4

For CCW, I'd lose the magwell. For carry or competition, I'd contact www.kytac.com for either an IWB or OWB rig.

It's worth at least $800, but as these posts show, it might be tough to get that. Why? Because few people know the value, much less appreciate what a gem of a gun your customized XD truly is.

And if the OP trades it for a PHONE, then he doesn't appreciate it, either.

Agreed! This does explain the odd color of the slide too.

That is a custom XD done by Rich at Canyon Creek.

New they are worth over $1000! I'd say you did pretty good on the trade.

I can't believe some of the bone headed comments made in this post. Goes to show you that not everyone knows what they are talking about.

Take care...

Well, looking at what you have and what you traded, I think you made out good. As several posters above have stated, you traded an $850 gun for a $850 gun, so that pritty good.

Also, you now have a sidearm that you can CCW if you wish to, adding that extra functionality. I doubt a Carbon 15 pistol makes a good CCW choice!

I would *NOT* trade it for a iPhone and $200.

As for the grip-tape: I have skate-board grip tape on the side of my XD as well. It improves handling and control of the gun when firing. It may not look like a piece of art, but for me function is more important than form.

He didn't ask how much it cost he asked how much it's worth. No one is going to pay $850-$1000 for a HS2000.

The 3Gs iphone goes for$200-$300 not $50-$100 as mention previously, so the math calculations would be a little different. However, I wouldn't make that trade even though I'm not a big fan of the XD (especially with adjustable sights).

Depending on the iphones memory size they go for 400-600 used. A $200 dollar iphone 3gs would be a steal. On craigslist here they go for up to $700. If you can sell the xd for $350, an iphone 3gs and $200 would be worth easily $600, so that would be the best way to go. Sell the ifail, i mean iphone for $400 if you dont want it.
