All of the items are coming directly from the manufacturer and will be the most current models.
Product Description XHD stands for Extra Heavy Duty and we mean it. Thicker alloy barrel, 5/16” hardened stainless shaft, trigger mechanisms are carbide tipped and all models are equipped with 5/8” Hi-Mod bands that feature stainless wire wishbones. The XHD is the gun of choice for commercial and hardcore shooters. To these guys it’s a tool... not a toy. Three bands and a hardened tip will punch through just about any fish, which is why the Shark Research Institute depends on the XHD for tough jobs like radio tagging 40ft whale sharks. Go big. Go XHD.
