I'm seeing some great XD's! Gives me lots of ideas. I had the misfortune to go into a shop by my house looking for a new addition to the collection. The guy behind the counter had a XD40 but the slide had a mirror finish and looked like something straight from a rap video. He was so proud he could actually see himself in his pistol. I guess he said it took 42 hours. I'm all for people expressing themselves with their firearm but this was tragic to behold.

How does one get a mirror finish on a slide like this? Just morbid curiosity.

Hello,

There's a whole thread on polishing the slide and the barrel on an XD over at xdtalk.com. Personally, I think it looks like s%^*e!, but to each his own:

http://www.xdtalk.com/forums/general...ome-job-4.html

My XD is bone stock, but of course I just got a day or two ago ;-) Only mods I've considered are a set of night sites, and possibly a working over by the SA custom shop (Carry Package)...

http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=165849

BTW, xdtalk.com is an excellent source of information for XDs. I haven't joined the forum, but I lurk there for information. They seem like a good bunch there

Awesome info man. Greatly appreciate it. Yeah the first time I looked at his mirror polish I recoiled in horror. I just cant understand why anyone in their right mind would "thug out" their XD. For that matter spend 42 hours of their life doing it. I guess I'm just a practical thinker.....besides wanting a D.Eagle that is.
Thanks for the heads up man.

Wow, I am seriously liking that JPoint holographic sight, I see where they make adapters for various makes of semi autos, but not the XD. I am going to have to do some research on which other makes are interchangeable
with the XD.

At 269.00 a pop, they must be able to take the punishment.

Alcohol and Guns don't mix. Except when both of them are made in Karlovac, Croatia. Their two best exports.

My favorite Croatian Beer: Pivo Karlovacko
My favorite Croatian Pistol: XD 40 Tactical




Now I need to find a nice Karlovacko Cigar to complete the ATF trifecta.
