    My 9SC and full-size 9's have obviously different slides and frames so I cannot put a slide from one on the frame of another. Are the 45's this way also? In other words, can I buy a 4"C and swap tops between that and a full size Tactical?

    I believe the only ones you can swap out are .40's and 9's of the same sizes... tac .40, and tac 9 can interchange...

    I don't think my question was very clear so let me try again; If I have three XD-45's, a compact 4", a full-size Service, and a full-size Tactical, can I freely swap top ends from one to any of the others.

    I CAN'T do this between my XD-9 full size guns and my XD9-SC's. The frames and slides are different between the full-size guns and the subcompact guns. I was wondering if the 45's are ALL interchangeable, or if I will have the same limitation.

    If in doubt, call Springfield Armory. It's always good to get it from the manufacturer.

    ...I think the compact will interchange too, as it is the same as a service, except for the grip!

    The Compact & Service will interchange though it is not a good idea since everything is serial numbered & therefore out of warranty if anything happens. I haven't found a Tactical for sale so I can't comment on that swap.

    The frames on the 45's are all the same except that the compacts have a grip chop. All 45 slides should swap with all 45 frames. Same goes with the service and tactical 9mm, 40, and 357 slides and frames.

    having owned a 45-service for some time, I found that the grip is just too long to conceal well.

    I decided to get a 45-tac-compact. swapped frames/slides and now have the ideal combo:
    -5" full-size for bedstand/idpa
    -4" compact to carry

    200+ rds thru both, no problems.
