    Well guys, it has been a year and a half since I stumbled upon this forum, and learned about the wonderful benefits of my first and favorite gun, the XD-40. Since the purchase of my baby last year, I have made numerous upgrades to her.

    Here are the obvious upgrades:

    -Don's Guide Rod with #22 spring
    -Clipdraw
    -Magwell Frame plug
    -extended mag release button
    -Laserlyte QD
    -Applied gun coating by Mac Mgraw: Tuff Gun 2 finish on the outside of gun, Tuff Gun 1 finish on the inside metal parts

    Now: I also ordered a 5" tactical barrel from EFK, and had it sent over to John Noveske to get it threaded for the Evolution-40 suppressor. After the threading was complete and sent back to me, I realized that the barrel did not fit into my xd, and minor adjustments had to be made to it. So, I sent the barrel to another gunsmith to get it fitted properly. Needless to say, all these shipping costs, fees back and forth, and the time it all took, was a draining task to say the least.

    I ordered the Evolution-40 in December of 2004, and received it in my hands the first week of October, 2005. As some of you might know, the paperwork process was draining as well.

    BUT! :twisted: Lets get to the good part :twisted:

    Here is my finished baby, hope you like it. I will take more detailed pictures and post them later.

    The cost of the entire thing would probably be in the 1200 (including like 200$ worth of shipping of various parts back and forth across the country) for the gun and 950 for the suppressor total.

    There are two ways of aiming the gun: The sights are still good, only a very small portion of the suppressor is actually above the sights, so you can approximate a little bit. It is still very accurate. As for short distance, there's the laser, which does a wonderful job at close range.

    Accuracy I have not been able to test out yet, I will go to the range as soon as I get a chance.

    As for sound suppression, the bullets that I have shot with (180 grain, slowest I could find) still sounded like they broke the sound barrier. Although the sound did not hurt my ears with no sound protection, it was somewhat louder than I have seen in video clips online with .45 cal suppressors.

    R/T Performance was kind enough to send me over a couple minor 180's and 200 grain bullets that will be MUCH slower than the 180 I tested with. Hopefully those will be much quieter.

    I will post pics and results when I get them in tomorrow.

    nice.

    Was the 9 month wait just to get the forms through? or did you have to wait on AAC to mfg and supply a SN before the form got sequenced?

    The forms were sent in to the ATF by my dealer in the first week of April, 2005. He didn't have the EVO-40 in stock, so he had to order one from Advanced Armament.

    That, along with the fingerprint cards, and to get the signature by the chief of police took 4 months alone. Bummer. Total ATF wait time was around 5 months. :roll:

    It weighs 10 oz (283g), which is barely noticeable when you pick it up both hands. (in my humble opinion)

    Let me tell you, the first time I screwed the suppressor onto my xd I felt like I was in heaven. It looks way better in person, and the gun feels a lot tighter for some reason.

    By the way, I had 5 of my magazines coated with Tuff Gun 2 to a sweet black finish. Future pics will show them.

    Uber Tactical man, very nice!

    I wonder how 147gr 9mm would sound with a suppressor. Would you say your report is kind of like a .22 or what?
