So far I havent taken my pistol apart any further than a field strip and I was wondering how to get started with the full dissassembly. What tools are needed and how do you remove the locking block from the reciever? I didnt want to just start forcing things and wind up with a broken gun, I have no idea how much pressure it takes to remove the pins or if a special kind of tool is needed :oops: . If someone could explain how to get started I would be extremely grateful. Sorry if this is a stupid post, I just didnt find what I needed with the search. Thanks all!

Everything you could want to know and more can be found at AJames site:

http://www.xd-hs2000.com/


Click on "disasembly" and have fun!

One tip that I will give you, is have a large clear baggie on hand.. any part that AJames says to be careful with or a spring will shoot little tiny parts across the room... put the slide, or frame inside the bag while you are taking it apart.. this will save you hours of time on your hands and knees looking for little tiny parts!

You'e not kidding!

I was upstairs detail stripping my XD Sub. Well, I had cracked my window about 6 inches to get some air.

While I was removing my extractor, the damn thing popped out and flew OUT OF MY WINDOW. Now... this is on the second story. It fell all the way down and all I heard was a *PING* *ping* *pshuffle*.

Damn extractor flew out of my slide, through a 6-inch opening in my window, went downstairs, hit my deck and fell through it into the leaves under my deck. At 7:00pm. It was dark.

I had to use a damn flashlight.


:lol:

Now that is some seriously crappy luck. Although, that was a good shot to make it out that window...
