As always I call upon the collective logic of my fellow Forum members before I do any gun deal. Currently on my mind is a Springfield Armory XD45, standard grip length with 4" bbl. that a local guy has up for trade for a 1911. I've been doing quite a bit of work to my ATI swapping out lower quality factory parts for higher quality aftermarket ones. I've gotten it pretty close to where I want it to be, just need an extended stainless mag release, stainless hammer and stainless safety and it'd be 99% done. Now I see this guy wanting to trade his XD45 and I get tempted since I've read that XD's are pretty good guns and I'd have 13+1 rounds of 45acp, almost twice as much as I have now with my ATI. Since my ATI is my HD gun the more rounds I can have the better because more likely then not in a "bump in the night" situation it'll be grab the gun, grab the flashlight, throw on my pants and go check it out, no time for extra ammo or mags. Since I've had my ATI for a while I'm use to having a grip safety so that's not as big of a deal for me as it use to be but I still think it'll take some time to get use to having to depress the grip safety in order to rack the slide but that's just a matter of training. So, what do ya'll think, hang onto the ATI and finish up getting parts for it or see if the guy would be interested in trading for his XD45? Thanks. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
