    Hi all. I am new to this site, new to firearms and new to CCW. My weapon is a XD 9mm 4" service model all black. I just have a few questions. So how reliable is the striker block safety? I plan on carrying, when I get my CHL license in, loaded with one in the chamber for obvious reasons. I am just a little worried on if my gun gets bumped hard if it will go off. I am sure it won't but I just want to know if anybody has had any accidental discharges because of this. Also does anyone know of a company that makes custom floor plates for magazines. I am a huge Metallica fan and I want one with the ninja star logo.

    to test my trigger job i dropped my xd from the about eye level or a little higher and the striker never dropped no matter what. another way to test it is to get a EMPTY BRASS CASE with a live primer (NO BULLET OR POWDER) hold down the grip safety and take a small flat head screw driver and rotate the sear to drop the striker. I am no responsible if you shoot a hole in your face or ceiling or tv.

    If you take your slide off and look at the block, you'll see how it works. It seems like a pretty solid design to me.

    The only way I can see it failing is if it gets gummed up and fails to drop back down after the trigger is released. I don't know if that could happen or not, but that's the only thing I could think of.

    I've never heard of an accidental discharge with an XD pistol, maybe someone else has.

    Welcome to the forum.

    There is absolutely NO WAY the gun will fire without the striker safety lever being disengaged. And he only way to do that is to pull the trigger.

    It's an incredibly safe gun, even with a trigger kit.

    So I assume nobody knows of a place that does custom floor plates?
