    • 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.

  1. Yes, I have heard of the HS2000, that’s why I’m not a fan of the XD9. 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.

    • 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

  2. I knew the XD was “based on” the HS2000. I wasn’t aware that it was the same damn gun.

    The more you know.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Just bought my XD 9 from Turner’s for $429.99. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.
