I just got my 3rd SA XD this one in 9mm. Traded a G19 for it. I buy and sell and trade guns all the time and that was my best trade to date.

Not to start another XD vs. Glock topic, my question is this. I am going to carry this XD as a service weapon and I contacted Megan Klavon @ Springfield via e-mail this morning and she responded that for $90 I could send the whole gun in and they would Armory Kote it. I would have to pay because there is no problem with rust on my weapon if there were, they would not charge for thr Armory Kote. I have read in other topics here that for I think $140 to $160 the custom shop at SA would hard chrome it. Would that be worth the extra bucks to have it hard chromed?

It depends on the look you are going for. If you want to keep your XD from rusting, just apply a few coats of Armadillo, and reapply after every cleaning.

At least you can try the Armadillo route first. This solution is a little less money than the other two options. I have been rust free for over a year, and I believe it is because of Armadillo.
