Hey all, the dreaded rust appeared on my XD the other day when I was inspecting it. Just a tiny little bit on the outside of the barrel. It wiped off easily with a silicone cloth. I must not have evenly coated the barrel with oil or something of the sort so I just gave it a quick recoat and reassembled. Still no rust on the slide to speak of as I clean and lube extensively after each range trip. My finish is starting to wear down in some spots already and I've only had the pistol for close to 1 month. Guess I knew this would happen before I bought it though.
