    My new XD-9 sub compact has a little rectangular mark in front of the take-down lever .
    Is this the frame mold marks that are used to make the full size XD's?
    Kinda like where one mold inserts a "filler" to fill up the normal void where the full size XD has the cut-out portion for the take-down lever ? Sorry to sound confusing and not to post a pic, but I dont know how to post a pic on here .

    Look at the takedown lever on the XD sub compact . Then look just a few mm's in front of it . There is a rectangular shaped mark . This is what I am talking about .

    I don't know what it is, but my XD9sc has the same thing. Can't say that I've ever noticed it before. :)

    I compared my XD-9 Service to it and I do belive it is what I thought . Looks like a normal "fill in " of the polymer for the small XD's where the bigger XD's have a "cut out" here for the bigger take down lever .
