I like it a lot... I have close to 600 rounds through it so far :) was shooting it while it was being held..

The ONLY thing that makes me wonder is the fitment of the mag.. when installed it wiggles a little bit... more that some other pistols ive used and am waiting for.

Other than that its perfect... shooting Blazer Brass .40's through it from walmart and after about 200 rounds im getting good consistant grouping. Tried some WWB's to see if i could get them tighter but i just can't for some reason.. its slightly off to the lower left from the sights though... very little but something i want to look into.

But so far very very pleased.

Nice gun and nice pictures! I've always liked the OD XD's looks that would also be my choice if I ever were to pick one up. The Glock OD has always looked like :puke: to me.

Congrats!

Two of my friends have XD's and they complained about low and to the left. It seems to be a trend with XD's till you get used to it. I never had that problem. I just really really like how it points naturally and feels in my hand.

My only complaint is the long trigger pull but it seems to be actually getting better, it's not a 1911 i keep telling myself. My friend bought an M&P .45 talking about a really creepy trigger. But i have to say the M&P's shoot really good too.

Well i'm happy for you another satisfied XD owner!!!

nice pics, I have a XD in .40 and I have to say that the trigger takes a little getting used to, nothing a few hundred rounds won't fix.

Sweet I like the OD and Black Combo now a lot more, not enough to get away from my Evil Black Guns though :D Cannot wait to have my AR Build done so that I can take pics of both of my beauties. Which will be a job for my good friend Jon to do for me since he has a Nikkon 40D :43:

I have the OD XD45 Tactical. Just ordered a Blade-Tech Stingray holster in OD green to match for IDPA matches.

Camera is a Nikon D80 with the "Kit" 18-135mm lens.

The bullet deal was my home defense rounds and then i had a lot of cheap-o target rounds that i just threw around for the backround.

Damn, thats some really good info! I wish I had seen it when I first bought my XD. It took me a while to figure out how to fix that problem.

By the way nice pictures! I have two XD's and the mag's wiggle a little on both of them but neither have had any problems because of it.

Oh 1 thing to keep in mind, if the extractor breaks you need to send the slide to SA to have it replaced. It kinda sucks that you have to send it out but my first XD9 ran around 10,000 rounds before the extractor broke and SA had my gun back to me in around a week. My newer XD has around 7,000 rounds threw it and the extractor still looks great.
