    I already own an XD 45 Compact 5 inch. I am considering purchasing an XD 45 4 inch pistol (full size grip). And I was wondering if the slides will transfer between pistol frames. Thus putting the full size grip on the 5 inch and the compact grip on the 4 inch.

    No problem. within xd45 series the frames and slides are fully compatible and interchangeable.

    They are interchangeable BUT sometimes they might require a bit of fitting because of the difference between each slide and frame. I say this because my tactical and service would not readily interchange until I fitted the tactical slide on the service frame. There was a bit of polymer at the rear of the frame that was cause the slide to bind as it went back to cock and load a round.
