Who quit making them?

There's eight of the Rock Island Armory GI Standard MS 51417 models (4.25" barrel) on Gunbroker right now.

One vendor has seven at a Buy-it now-price of $549.95 + shipping & if you use a cc.

CA compliant

The last one is on a bidding line.

4.25 is too long to carry and who wants to be communist compliant? 3.25 is short on length and rounds. Springfield has lost a customer.

You didn't even identfy what model of handgun you wanted.

Communists didn't design a Commander length 1911, nor any of the 4" XD line.

Sorry about that. I have carried a 4in 45APC for many years . The ( 13 rd.) XD Mod 2 4" service .45 was my latest love. It is absolutely perfect. I never was a fan of the 911, it don't fit my hand right. Any of the 4" XD line fit me perfect but I cannot find anything.

There are 9 (one in bidding war, & 8 buy-it-nows for $599.99) new 4" XD9611's (full sized) on GB right now plus one used.

The 4" XD Mod.2 in 45 ACP was the gun that turned me on the Springfield. I picked it up out of curiosity when it went on sale after Springfield announced that they were discontinuing the Mod.2 line. That gun is the most accurate .45 that I have ever fired, and it encouraged me to pick up a few other XD's. I understand that 9mm is all the rage these days, but I'd love to see Springfield release a few more double-stack options in .45 ACP. I'd love to see an XD-M Elite in .45 ACP.

It was a similar experience for me except that I bought mine before they had decided to discontinue them. I was actually looking for a Glock, but the many, many I tried didn't feel right for me. And it is definitely the most accurate .45 I have ever shot. 1.5" groups at 25 yards the first time I shot it. And it is the only SA firearm I own.
