tonight, i decided to completely disassemble the weapon, all the way down to springs and pins. this being my first FULL SCALE disassembly, i was somewhat nervous, and very cautious...but i did it. :D

i can now say i OWN my XD. a sort of rite of passage, if you will. i even buffed some of the trigger components so as to make the trigger "nicer" for me. at least that was the suggestion provided to me from some reputable sources.

i wanted to share my own personal triumph over mechanical things (upon which my life may depend) to the group. this was much simpler than i thought it would be.

now...after a stiff shot of something fiery, i'll attempt my USP's. :shock: but not tonight. :wink:

I gotta' give you your props.. you are braver than I am. I feel that I now know the insides and outsides of my rear assembly.. but I just don't have the confidence to take the whole thing apart. I am not what the medical doctors refer to as "mechanically inclined!"

I have been wanting to take the trigger assembly apart though... I think the trigger would look good shiny! I am a bit timid about taking things apart though.. They always come apart so easily, getting them back together is always a problem.

Maybe I will give it a try this weekend... if I have trouble, I think I still have AJames phone number on my cell phone somewhere! LMBO!!

i had the disassembly web pages in front of me the ENTIRE time. i felt like i was in good hands.
i just took it slowly, and to make sure i did it right, i cleaned each part as it came out of the gun.

i also, drew a rough sketch of the frame on a piece of paper, and as the part came out, it was placed on the diagram where it goes in real life. kinda hard to mess it up that way. :D

When I get to the point of disassembling my XD SC, I think I'll take pictures with my digital camera at each step. Just can't trust the ol' brain as much, anymore. Can you give me a pointer to the disassmbly web page?

I also took my XD all the way down to the pin and springs! While it was a pretty big job it was not near as bad as several other guns I have completely disassembled. Take it slow, understand what you are doing, and you will be just fine.

oh yes. i wouldn't consider disassembling it a success unless i could reassemble it successfully. :wink:

Every time a get a new gun, I take it down as far as possible before shooting it to clean it and familiarize myself with its parts so that I know whats going on inside it while it is being fired. When I get home from the range I disassemble it and look over the parts again so I can get an idea of the wear patterns of the parts so that I will be able to spot problems before they become PROBLEMS.
