Could someone post a photo showing the location of the striker channel with the gun field stripped, with a pen or something pointing at the channel? I've read you're not supposed to lube the striker channel (I only use CLP to clean my XD SC and Tetra grease on the rails), but I guess I need to know exactly where not to spray the CLP. Thanks!

Do not get oil in the hole in the breech face (where the firing pin protrudes).

I am not where I can photo document it at the time, but removal is simple. Look in your XD-S owner's manual on pg 33. Is as follows:
Remove slide. You have to remove the striker locking plate part # 25.
To do this you must press in the little tab on the top of the locking plate part # 27 (It's the little square you see in the top of the plate). While pressing this tab in, slide the plate down and there you have it. There is a little tension, but the striker spring won't come flying out.
Now you can THOROUGHLY clean the striker channel . You will see the black oily fouling paste that has accumilated from firing. Especially if the factory grease was never removed prior to first firing the pistol! Re-assymbly is reverse of above. A "LIGHT" oily film is acceptable in the channel. And I mean very light!! You dont want it to rust.

That was quick! Okay, so in my book part #25 is the Striker Safety Lever. So I field strip the gun, first removing the locking plate (#27), then the striker safety lever (#25), and then I take out the striker (#31)? Will the spring (#34) come out too? And the channel is where the striker and spring came from?

I'm pretty mechanically inclined, but have never gone further than field stripping my XD and would hate to render it inoperable...

The channel is Melonite coated. No more likely to rust than the rest of the slide. Bone dry gets my vote.

I just found a video that shows the disassembly:
I'm guess the channel you can look into at 3:44 is the striker channel, right?

Tara, My post was for the XD-S! Not XD. We are in the XD-S forum

Please move your post's to correct forum. Not being a smart @ZZ, just need to keep the thread on tract to avoid confusion!

Sorry, I guess I should have posted my question there, but I thought the striker channel would be the same for both guns... Just proves that I am an "XD Talk Newbie"!

Just got back from the range and was making sure some SD ammo can cycle and shoot properly from the XD-S, I shot 100 rounds of GD 230gr and Ranger T 230gr. I did not have any cycle problems I did have 1 light strike on a Ranger T.
