I just bought a beautiful XD9 yesterday. I have been looking over the manual and the only disassembly instructions I see say to rotate the front lever up to the 12 o'clock position. It gives no other instructions. What do I do next? I have several guns, but they are all revolvers and rifles. I consider myself pretty knowledgable about guns, and feel silly asking this.

:oops:

You have to pull the trigger to field strip it. So make sure it's clear and dry fire it. Then pull the slide right off (forward).

1) Clear the gun
2) Lock the slide back
3) Rotate the lever up
4) Pull the trigger
5) Hit the slide stop
6) Slide the whole slide forward and off the frame

Alternately reverse steps four and five to be:
4) Hit the slide stop
5) Pull the trigger

The result is the same.
Because you have to pull the trigger you need to be sure that the chamber is clear. I remove the magazine and cycle the slide 2 or 3 times while looking. This insures that if I was stupid about the magazine that rounds would eject and show me that I was stupid.

Also, the slide will not release if the magazine is inserted in the mag well.

Actually you're right Don, I swapped steps. I always cycle the slide a few times myself, but leaving the slide open and pulling the trigger won't do anything. You have to have the slide forward to disassemble the gun. :oops:
