I have a .40 XD Service Model. Today I broke down the slide 100% (disassembled EVERYTHING: firing-pin mechanism, USA safety, extractor, and chamber loaded indicator) and cleaned it, and cleaned and lubed the frame without disassembling it (haven't the balls for that yet). Took me just over 2 hours.

How long does it take you to do this????

I can actually peel apart the XD slide pretty fast, probably takes about 2 to 3 minutes. I can assemble it just as fast. But I am a little obsesive compulsive about making sure I get all the carbon build-up and brass off the slide. PLus I use bore (drunk spelling?) on teh slide to get all the carbon out of the firingpin mechanism area, then rinse it with rubbing alchole (to rinse away the bore cleaner then let it evaporate), so I can LIGHTLY oil everything. I also use the barrel cleaner on all teh firngpin parts to get off all the carbon and brass, then lightly oil all those parts to get the cleaner off. Am I being too detailed in cleaning?
