Hi all,
Just registered.
Anyway, I have an XD9 service model (4" bbl), and I was wondering if the Tactical model (5" bbl) slide/barrel could be swapped onto the service model frame. If so, where could I buy the upper half?
Thanks

I was surprised to read that it cannot be done as I have an XD40 and an XD9 Tactical and I CAN interchange the uppers....Unfortunately, even if you could swap the uppers on the XD9 frame....Springfield doesn't sell complete slide assemblies, as I understand it and if they did, it would not be economic as even the aftermarket barrels cost between $140 and $185 by the time you add the cost of the slide and breech block goodies, it would cost the same as a complete gun....

I would think there would be a gap at the dust cover!
