    There used to be a thread with photos of all the parts of the XD, in an exploded view layout. I had it bookmarked, but it was from the old HS2000talk days, and my bookmark doesn't work anymore :(. Anyone know how I can get to it again?

    Thanks!

    tec,
    No, but these are great too! The ones I was thinking of were actual photos someone took after detail stripping their pistol. He (or she) had them all laid out on their table.

    The washer for the guide rod? Or do the tacticals not require that?

    What tools did you use to take apart your XD? And the $ question is how long did it take to put it back together. I guess the big $$$$$$$ question is did it work after you stripped it and put it back together.

    I would like to be able to replace the parts on my XD if and when they become available.

    You are correct. The Tacticals do not employ a captured recoil spring.

    (By the way, the recoil spring in the picture is a Wolff 24 lb. 1911 spring. It is a "drop in" fit and does wonders to improve the felt recoil of the Tactical.)

    Aside from a variety of pin punches used to drift out the assembly pins, no special tools were required. The extractor was removed simply by banging the rear of the slide down on a wooden block (make sure you remove the firing pin before doing this).

    Reassembly of an XD is fairly straightforward, as the parts go together in a mostly idiot-proof fashion. The only real hitch in the process was the magazine catch assembly--it took me a while to figure out how to retension the coil spring.

    And yes, it did function correctly after I put it back together--perhaps even a bit better as I polished most of the contact surfaces of the trigger mechanism while I had the gun apart. My XD currently has over 25,000 rounds of my handloads through it, and I do not recall it ever jamming (though the locking block did crack a while back, and Springfield sent me a replacement part).

    This is what my Tac looks like today:

    dleong, is Overkill correct on the washer? or is he correct
    that it is not needed?

    No washer on the tacticals. Only the guide rod and spring. I don't have an ACP tactical so I can speak for sure on that one.
