Gun is very sturdy, the blowback is suprisingly strong, and the cycle rate is great. I've had few problems with mine, and I've put it through roughly ten games so far. The new version DOES NOT come with the trades pictured. Specifically, there are no trades on the grip, and on the side, only "XD," not "XD-40." I personally didn't mind this so much. Also, this gun WILL fit a SERPA! You have to buy the "Springfield XD-40" style. the Compact version will not fit.
Also, the hopup on mine was very strong, too much curve even with .25s. When turned all the way down, though, its perfect.
Good kick and cycle rate
Reasonable use of gas
I've had the magazine jam/not feed a couple times.
Hopup a little too strong
Not the same trades pictured.
Some paint on the slide has started wearing off, due to use with the serpa.
