(Ed. note: Springfield Armory finally announced the new XDS 40. The details on the new gun are here.)
Rumors of the Springfield XDS 40 have been floating around since the introduction of the original XDS 45 at the 2012 SHOT Show. Â At the time of this writing, there has not been any official word from Springfield Armory, but people believe an announcement is close. Â I would expect the .40 caliber version to be rolled out in January at SHOT Show 2014. Â But, I would not be surprised to see the gun at the 2013 National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW) show this fall.
