At the end of my XD-9 sc my barrel feels like it has a little hump within the last 3/4 of an inch of the barrel. Is this normal, because I don't remember it before?

Or am I just paranoid?

It's normal.

A squib wouldn't cause a bulge, shooting a full power round with the squib still in the barrel would.

Normal, part of the break-in.

I am guessing the bulge serves the same function as a barrel bushing. It keeps the barrel centered in the slide when the gun is in battery, ready to fire.

Running kind of dry, are ya ?

Nice block out ;)
What's with the red, and WTF is in/with your barrel grooves ?
Weird light ?

I don't know, I sold that thing 2 or 3 years ago..:shock:;)
Pretty sure the barrel grooves are just the camera flash.
I never noticed the red and don't know where it came from.
I also usually wipe off excess grease (yep the polished barrel got grease) when I take pics.
I no longer own any XD pistols.

i like the look on your trigger. was that stock? nowadays the xds come with the polymer/plastic looking trigger, yours looks to be polished metal/chrome. nice little change up.

What happened to all of your xd's?

I had many a metal part polished on that pistol, an XD45 compact.







As far as XDs go, i just couldn't adapt to the trigger.
Too sloppy and spongy..
XDs are great guns, but just not for me.
I was leaning more towards DAK Sigs at that time.
But I'm more into 1911s as of late.
Yes, I have issues...;)

The polishing was a very nice touch!
