Hello everyone-

I have an XD 9 Service that has less than 300 rounds through it, and I have noticed the rear of the slide is quite loose laterally on the plastic rails.

Is this normal for the design? I have a new in box XD compact and it is tight as a drum.

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance

How loose would you say it is? My XD has a little play but nothing serious. I don't think that you will get a 1911 style fit to a polymer frame gun so I would say not to worry about it unless your having accuracy issues or its going to fall of of the frame.
Also, the plastic rails are there just to guide the slide along the path, the important part (to me at least) are the metal rails above the trigger on the frame.
