After an 8 day wait I picked up my XD 40, 4", service model today. It came in the standard case with a holster, 2 12 rd mags, mag holders, cleaning brush, and old sights (it has Tritrium sights installed).

Initial observation. The gun is in very good condition. It is used, but shows little wear (on the slide). Locking the slide open, I noticed the rod under the barrel. It appeared to stick out a small amount from the body. Looking at the dis assembly instructions, this rod appeared normal.

Loading the mags required some effort. I managed 11 rounds in each one. Couldn't fit the 12th round.

I picked up a box of 180gr FMJ. Looking forward to testing it at the range.

This is much lighter than my PT 92. The Tritium sights may get some used to, not having a V notch in the rear.

Will reserve my final judgement till I get to the range.

All in all, I am quite satisfied and look forward to picking up my non resident CCW Utah and Florida. As many of my fellow Maryland gun owners know, we live in a Republik, where CCW is not allowed.
