New Springfield XDe.

Post by N4KVE » Fri Apr 28, 2017 1:58 pm

How many of you guys like small semi auto's, but don't like striker fired guns. Springfield lets you have your cake,& eat it too. The new XDe. Small like the XDs, but has a hammer, with a decocker. GARY

What advantage if any would it have over the striker fired?

I don't see it as a huge advantage to not be striker fired, it just gives people who like a DA/SA style firearm a smaller and better choice. I prefer a DA/SA style trigger to a striker fired gun but I can deal with either. It is mostly, at least to me, just a personal preference.

You would not believe how many Taurus guns we sell to the financially challenged. The manager I work with at the show sells a ton. GARY.

Of course, they're cheap. Anything cheap sells look at jimenez, biggest POS in current production and they probably sell almost as many guns as some mid and top tier companies.
