This post is for my buddy that has and CC's an XD and has some slight issues with it, so I told him I would post the questions on here to get what your experance's are and what you changed if anything to fix the problem's.
First thing is he is having problems with the slide not locking back when the gun is empty. I would not like this in a defesive situation and having to deal with the slide too.
Can you change magazines or the gut's of the mag's he has to allow the slide to lock back when empty. What do you guy's do?
Second, The slide is prone to surface rusting according to him after wearing for a week or so. He is down in Florida so sweating is a given. He said his glock never did this but the XD is bad about it.
(I told him that a good holster would fix that problem) he is using the one that can with the XD package deal. Gun, holster, and two extra mags I think it was. But the holster is junk if you ask me.
Then changing the main spring do you all use the stock 17# the 19# or the HD 21# spring and why? also will this help slide lock by changing this?
Anyway what are your experances with the XD and what have you done to fix any problems listed or problems that you have had that are not listed?
Thank's, I am a 1911 guy so I am no help to him!
