    Just picked up a XD9 SC. I'm going to be using it for CCW and have a few questions as this is the first new gun I have owned.

    First off what is the red clip that came in the case?

    Secondly can I replace the sites myself?

    Any Recommendations for things to look at or do?

    From Cinci OH...If so welcome from another Cinci member! Red clip is a chamber flag (It shows that the chamber is not loaded for safety measures....Secondly, If you have never worked on a firearm before I wouldn't recommend it...I have also heard in order to replace your sights it is necessary/wise to buy the dovetail tool required to change them because if you just use a tap and a hammer you can damage the sights(at least on Trijicons) or the area the sights slide into... If you are looking to replace sights James on here from http://www.xd-hs2000.com does an AWESOME job installing sights at a super price and a quick return...hope this helps ...Welcome and Enjoy!
