"Springfield Armory" is constrained (by contract) from selling the XD
outside of the United States. Keep in mind that "Springfieald Armory"
are merely rebranding prefab'ed HS 2000 pistols made in Croatia.
In the Philippines, the official distributor for HS Produkt is
Stronghand Inc., with store locations along Roces Avenue in
Quezon City; at the Sail Centre Building, North Reclamation Area,
Cebu City, Philippines; along Santa Ana Avenue, Davao City; and
in Brgy. Nancayasan, Urdaneta City, Pangasinan
I agree that the finish doesn't keep out rust, but it's the thing's
