OK, so ive been running my XD45 Service for about ... 8 months now without the striker indicator in the slide. It launched itself into low orbit as i removed the striker for some chamber cleaning (buildup of brass prevention). i thought, oh well... now it looks like a glock. I dont see a glaring need to know the striker position.

So can you think of any drawbacks, mechanically, that you can think of that i should replace it on the double?

If you have a live round in the chamber, your striker is cocked.

Turns out it returned to Earth and landed exactly beside the cabinet i was working in front of and buried itself in the fibers of the carpet. it was so reflective, it disappeared. i happened to notice it by sheer coincidence.

but now i need a new roll pin for the striker.
