    Nice! Bad news is it's take about 6 months for new releases to show up at your LGS.

    Maybe that will make the Shields easier to find.

    Do you think someone could make one of these?
    Storm Lake Conversion Barrel Springfield XDs . 45 ACP to 9mm Luger 1 in 16" Twist 3.3" Stainless Steel
    That would be awesome.

    I think that the difference in case head diameters and bolt/slide face support might predclude trying to support the small 9mm round with the .45ACP slide. I am not sure how a 9mm mag could be adapted to fit and function in the .45 ACP frame. 9mm would also require a much lighter recoil spring than the one used in the .45.

    my question still is , why do you want a 9mm when u can have a 45 ? maybe i dont understand it , when xd were first out , iam talkin when all u could get was a 9mm service model , all the talk was , when will u bring it out in 45acp, well finally they did , now its in reverse for the xds models, hahahha oh well ill stick to the 45 platform, myself, not that theres anything wrong with 9's i owned plenty of them and still do ,

    My guess would be, size, style and quality of the Springer, plus there are many 9mm fans out there.

    I like the size of the XDS and so does my wife but she hates shooting it.
    Her next one will be either the XDS in 9 or the Shield, which every I can get a hold of first in the shop.
