    As I posted yesterday, I just picked up mu first XD last night... 9mm 4". and I noticed a package inside with an empty shell in it with the name of the person who test fired and assembled my XD "VUCIC I." was his or her name... Pretty cool that they did that, signed and dated & with the serial # and all the info!!

    Does every XD come this way? Or am I just Lucky?

    I think all the XD's do. Some states require that empty shell as part of registration...

    One came with my XD45, it was the first one I ever got with a new pistol however, it has been a very long time since I got a new one. It looks like things haven't stopped "changing".

    I got an e-mail back from Trisha @ SA saying "the mentioned serial # (on my XD service) was manufactured in 11-2008.

    Oddly, the fired casing enclosed with my XD has a date on the small white envelope of 04-09-2008. Doesn't make sense to me. Oh, well.

    I purchased this XD new on 01-06-2009.

    My XD, as well as most, if not all, come with an empty casing.

    All of mine came with them. All purchased new.

    It has nothing to do with registration of the gun. It's merely for SA to know the gun goes bang, and to make the buyer feel good knowing it was tested.

    if im not mistaken all new pistols do. they test fire it and then the fbi keeps the bullet on file so they have one if the gun is ever suspected in a crime. or so ive heard. not sure if its true.
