All stainless XD

Hey everybody, this is my first post here, so hello to all and Merry Christmas.

On to the question, has anyone ever heard of or seen a completely stainless XD? This sounds like it would be pretty sweet if it exists.

Welcome to XD Talk

Do you mean a stainless slide and frame?

Never heard of one, maybe the frame can be nickel-chrome plated.

I've done some research, and all I can find is some Glock race frames that are pretty expensive. And to be honest, I would rather just have a SA.

Also, the frame is polymer.

Glocks are polymer too, but you can get aluminum and stainless frames for them. I'm hoping someone offers the same for an XD.

And I don't think you can plate polymer. In fact, i'm sure you cant. BUT i've been wrong before. I hope I am here.

You could probably sputter coat the polymer, but not the same as metal on metal electro-plating. Even if you did it, it would be cosmetic change only. If you're gonna get a steel framed one, might as well get a Para Ordinance double stack .45....

Nobody besides Croatian IM Metal makes frames for the XD and they only make polymer frames.
