I have the solid black 5" tactical and I love it. But yesterday a buddy of mine picked up a bi-tone tactical silver/black and it looks really good!

I have an XD 40 that is all black. I would have preferred to get the bi tone silver/black. But that was the last one they had.

But it depends on its uses like wolfpack said...

yeah i shot the bi-tone today and i like how it looked but im not going for a showy gun..the OD green and the black are the main two im looking at. both have dark, flat colors

I have the earthtone .40 I go that because it matches most of the tan tactical crap I have. After you get it get the decal grips.

Ive been a certified armorer for years and actually own mostly springfields... but this specific XD 45 4in and the first round XD 40 4in ported are my favorites! BTW for color I always go with this moto "Black is tactical and tactical rules all" haha I think I heard this from one of my douche Lt. back in the day. Anyway good luck with the purchase, youll love this weapon its def bulletproof.
