can someone take a picture of the front of their XD-SC for me?
I brought mine home stripped it and cleaned it. put it back together and a little bit of the recoil rod assembly is sticking through the front of the slide. I'd like to see some other ones to see if mine is sticking through more than it should

It's just happy to see you!!!!

A little bit sticking out is normal. If the spring is in right, and the rod is in right, no worries, be happy.

It didn't look damaged but I wanted a pic to be sure.

I want to take it shooting but both my wal-marts are flat out of any 9mm ammo and I refuse to pay $12-13/50 at my range for 9mm ball ammo.

sky, that part of the stock recoil spring assembly usually sticks out the front a ways enough to annoy all xd owners. Thats one of the reasons i like the don's guide rod i have in my gun.

I would take the picture for you, but I have a Service. It would probably be more or less the same, but it's not what you asked for.

I have been told that the reason it extends just a bit is a safety feature.. in case a "contact" shot needs to be made. I don't see why that would help all that much if pressed into flesh, but that is what I was told.

thanks for the info. It just looked odd since none of the other guns I have stick out. Guess I'll chalk it up to a quirk of this little pistol.

I didn't like that "quirk" when I first looked at my Service model. Luckily I had already puchased Don's Guide Rod and installed it almost right away. It looks a whole lot better now. Unfortunatly, I don't think Don makes a rod for the SC (although, he might, if you ask him real nicely.)
