Yeah, its a .45GAP with an interchangeable .357SIG barrel.
January 7, 2004, 03:33 PM
Nah, you guys have it all wrong. They're making it in 451 Detonics with an interchangeable 400 CorBon barrel. I'll verify it with them at the Shot Show.
January 7, 2004, 04:01 PM
wow! I heard they're making it in .41 action express:D :D :D
January 7, 2004, 04:23 PM
I must say, i am pleased with how this thread has turned out :D
Here I was hoping SA was going to offer up its own round.. maybe a 10mm case necked to .45 :rolleyes:
January 7, 2004, 05:11 PM
I've seen a .223 necked up to 45. I heard that this is then new round that will replace the .223 in Afganistan!:scrutiny:
January 7, 2004, 05:22 PM
Damn gunshops, I heard it was available in .50 AE
January 7, 2004, 06:28 PM
Hey now, a 45~223 could be interesting.
oh. ok, maybe it wouldnt be.
I'm still holding out for an XD in something beefier than 40. 10mm, 45gap..
January 8, 2004, 09:07 AM
Ok, if they make one in 10mm and .45, my ammo budget is going to be shot to hell. :) Im a huge fan of the xds, and have a fullsize and a compact in 9mm. Im not a big fan of the .357 sig or the .40, but a 10mm would make a awesome woods gun. I know glock has a 10mm already, but Im not a real big glock fan.
January 8, 2004, 09:21 AM
I heard it was in 223 boz
January 8, 2004, 10:33 AM
As soon as the Croatians discover the 45acp round,and chamber it.
January 8, 2004, 10:53 AM
I heard it was to come out in .454:what:
January 8, 2004, 10:55 AM
It's coming out in .38 Casull! :D
January 8, 2004, 11:10 AM
Hey, TBO are you sure it was 38 corbon, and not 38 super?
January 8, 2004, 01:06 PM
I heard that if the AWB expires, it'll be available in .45 GAP with a 14 round mag, flush fitting no less!
January 8, 2004, 01:40 PM
.. maybe a 10mm case necked to .45
Oh, so you've heard of SA's Project Toadstool, huh?
January 8, 2004, 04:57 PM
Yea! I heard thats also happened to be what they were eating at the time!
January 8, 2004, 05:22 PM
a .22 mag necked up to 45 cal. shooting a 22.5 grain Armour star canned ham piercing bullet made out of Polymer at 1700 fps.
Optional will be a smart attachment consisting of a gerbil recognition unit which is a gerbil on a wheel who runs when he recognizes his master.
Also availible in 05 will be a flamethrower nozzle and backpack tank of jellied gasoline, disguised as a Barbie backpack.
January 8, 2004, 05:30 PM
I just heard that this maybe the new service weapon for the mall SWAT teams.
January 8, 2004, 05:35 PM
Gentlemen, I just heard a truely disturbing rumor.
The next XD pistol is not only going to use caseless ammo... but its going to be .62 caliber.
January 8, 2004, 05:41 PM
I thought it was going to use 10mm explosive tip caseless.
January 8, 2004, 07:08 PM
Belt fed no less:what:
January 8, 2004, 07:31 PM
Nope, they couldnt get the electronic distance fuse to work right in a 10mm package.. so they switched to the larger round.
All the other features are still being kept tho..
January 9, 2004, 09:23 AM
Like the 30 mm pump-action grenade launcher?
January 9, 2004, 01:12 PM
I just placed a two hour overseas call to the factory. They said that after having done their research (on a website that sounded sorta like "GlockTalk", but I'm not sure, there were some language problems), they decided the next XD will be in 454 with a titanium barrel.
January 9, 2004, 09:28 PM
It will be all carbonfibre, and ceramic. Invisible to X-ray machines.
And it will fire the .50BMG, yet the grip will still be small enough for your hand.
It will weigh 0.97oz.
January 9, 2004, 10:03 PM
No No, Toadstool is the project for military sales, the civilian version is Project Mushroom. For that matter its always Project Mushroom...
January 9, 2004, 11:21 PM
And it will fire the .50BMG, yet the grip will still be small enough for your hand.Magazine fed from the side, I guess. Must be made from a Lithium/Scandium alloy with a polyfornic liquid metal matrix. Ruger uses a similar alloy to make golf clubs.
January 10, 2004, 12:57 AM
Your close badger. Actually its made of carbon nanotubes that have captured helium atoms internally. Thus the great strength, and offsets the weight of the rest!
January 10, 2004, 03:01 AM
I read this:
Hey, I heard that they're only making it in .45GAP.
Before I read this:
I'm starting a rumor that they're only making it in .45GAP. Lemme know if you hear it.
and a almost burst into tears!
okokok.... it was FREAKING HALARIOUS! but not for that 3 seconds!
January 10, 2004, 03:19 AM
I heard that they're making a slim yet fullsized single-stack .45, doing what Glock and Kahr have not yet dared to do!
January 11, 2004, 12:32 PM
Here's the rumor coming back atcha!:
1911 Forum XD 45 thread (http://www.1911forum.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=68853)
January 11, 2004, 12:45 PM
It will fire 20mm airbursting shells, with a maximum range of 2000 yards. It has computer guidance to tell the shells when to explode over a target, and a magazine capacity of 12 rounds.
January 11, 2004, 01:50 PM
maybe we need to start rumor threads more often :D
