    Wanting a gun that is considerably smaller, lighter than my CZ 97b, I would like to buy a SA XD sub-compact in 40 S&W.
    I would appreciate advice/input as regards selecting between the 9802 Black,the 9812 OD, and the 9802F.
    Frankly, the 9802 F is not much of a contender because money is a major consideration in this purchase, but I'd pay it if I was convinced it was worth it. The main choice, however is between the black and the OD.

    Well, I'm at work so I'll just quickly recap what I've said before:

    While looking thru GunsAmerica I have to say I was surprized at how close to MSRP these guns sell for!

    The XD is a nice gun. I got a XD-9 in SS with a 4" bbl. It works for me but I have not held the sub compact so I don't know how it feels. The SS is well worth the little extra money since the blued finish is garbage.

    I can only tell you I'm pleased with my black XD sub compact. So far the finish has held up well. It gets wiped down regularly after carrying and cleaned after each use.

    Not to hijack, but listen to what happened to me today....

    I was shooting my XD9 Service today and had a wild malfunction. The gun has about 200 rounds through it, and was properly lubricated and clean.

    Anyway, using one of the factory 15 rounders that came with it and new production Winchester 124 gr NATO ammo, I had a piece of brass fail to eject, sticking itself into the magazine, where it then pushed the next live round nose first down the mag body. Nice.

    No immediate action to cure this one!! I had to unload, dig the "debis" out of the mag, repostion the rounds and reload.

    Probably mag related, eventhough it was a new factory mag, but my XD confidence is somewhat diminished now. I'm going to keep shooting it to see if it happens again.

    I myself have a Springfield Armory Xtreme Duty 40 Sub-Compact.

    I like it.... I like it a lot :evil:

    At about round 80 I had a round fail to completley load into the chamber, I felt very, very upset and betrayed :mad: :(

    I am now at round 600, with only that 1 failure.

    Im going to the range tomorrow and put anothe 200 rounds through her.

    However THR member alduro has reported problems with his XD40SC. Failures to eject at least 1/100 rounds, and is getting slap back from his trigger. :what: He has sent his gun back to Springfield for repairs
    You can read the report Here
