Springfield Armory XD Service HC Bi-Tone XD9302HCSP06 40 S&W

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The XD40 offers a lot of value for the money. It shot well, had a decent trigger, and we liked its combination of safety features. The included XD gear package proved to be a functional and welcomed bonus. A stiff mag release and a slightly mushy trigger caused us to slightly mark down the gun.

A striker-fired gun, the XD offered several safety indicators to show when the gun was ready to fire. A striker indicator in the form of a small pin is visible from the rear of the slide. A small sharkfin-like protrusion is present on the top of the slide when a chambered round was present. It was prominent enough to provide both visual and tactile confirmation. This was an improvement over the more subtle Glock indicator, we thought. The XD40 also incorporates a grip safety into its design, a trait shared with the STI.
We found the extra gear packed with the XD40 to be a functional bonus. Included were a holster, magazine carrier, and magazine loader. It also comes with two 12-round stainless-steel magazines. The barrel has a fully supported ramp and the sights were dovetailed into the slide front and rear.
