You an XD9 Fan? Have You Heard of the HS2000? by Dan Zimmerman | Jul 24, 2012 | 17 comments facebook twitter linkedin email comments jwm says: July 24, 2012 at 17:13 i don’t like grip safeties.ymmv. Reply Mark N. says: July 24, 2012 at 17:21 I like the grip safety on a weapon without any other safety and a fairly low effort trigger. Then again, I own an XD9, and I have had no problem with the grip safety–ever. You hardly know it is there. A glock can be fired without someone holding on to it, a Springfield cannot. Reply Michael B. says: July 24, 2012 at 17:25 I like a drop safety. That’s all.

Nobody wanted the HS2000 when it cost $280. Springfield renamed it “Xtreem, dude!”, dumped a bunch of money into advertising, jacked up the price to cover the cost of marketing, and suddenly every d-bag with frosted tips wanted one. Reply Rabbi says: July 24, 2012 at 19:51 The HS2000 had some issues, I can’t remember if it was feeding or ejection. Springfield fixed the issue when they took over distribution. I have never experience a problem, nor even noticed the grip safety regardless of what position I shot. I have carried XDs for about 10 years without issue Reply Matt in FL says: July 24, 2012 at 18:12 I knew the XD was “based on” the HS2000. I wasn’t aware that it was the same damn gun. The more you know. Reply Trust no one says: July 24, 2012 at 18:48 Yep I knew that and I love my xd. Reply "lee n. field" says: July 24, 2012 at 18:55 Slow news day? Reply CarlosT says: July 25, 2012 at 04:32 I thought everybody knew this. Reply Danny Smith says: July 25, 2012 at 07:20 I’ve had an XD9 for 5 years and I love it. The XD is based on the HS2000 but Springfield did make modifications. It is a great gun. Reply Mike S says: July 25, 2012 at 12:07 And while they can no longer be had for $300ish, an XD9 service (4″) or subcompact (3″), if you shop, can be found for $400-450. Still not a bad bargain for a no-frills but dead-nuts reliable defensive handgun.

I’m new to the world of guns and couldn’t be happier with my purchase. I knew from YouTube that it used to be an HS 2000 and is a Croatian gun. It was still $100 cheaper than the Glock 17 and the grip felt better than the S&W MPShield 9. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a 9mm. Reply Jon says: May 8, 2016 at 17:47 That appears to be one of the early HS2000s – I have one that I bought in 2001 that has the more aggressive slide serrations and the accessory rail under the barrel. I had my ffl order it because of an ad placed in Shotgun News (or maybe it was in CDNN’s catalog?) and all told I walked out the door with it for less than $300. Reply SkankHunt42 says: December 12, 2016 at 22:04 My penis gets fully erect reading all these “manly” comments, I’m high on Vicodin and I’m wondering if anyone can recommend a good tranny/shemale sight that’s good for jerking off – I get so fucking hard looking at Bailey Jay’s rock-hard cock.
