Think back to how dirty it was. Mine came out of the box, went into the holster and shot 800 rounds before I was allowed to clean it. It shows the quality of this gun, the only FTF or FTE were set up for clearing drills. I love my XD.

They test fire the weapon to get the spent cartridges needed by federal law, but I sure don't think they clean them after!


Have fun with the new gun!

Mine came with factory lube on the slide's surface... I think it's one way of protecting the firearm against corrosion during transport and storage.

Mine had no problems straight out of the case... I have already shot over 250 rounds with not even one incident of FTF or FTE:)

There is no federal law that says they have to send a fired case with the pistol! SA does it for the states that have a law about fired cases.
