I just bought my 5" tactical XD-40 new for $415 from the local shop. All black. I already have a Walther PP and S&W 38 Special, but I wanted a modern gun all along. Finally found the right one.

-Can you interchange different caliber barells; could I make my XD-40 fire 9mm?

-What else besides the Xenon light and Laser sights would make sense to mount on the picatinny rail? Anything?

-Anyone used the LaserMax? The internal laser sights..? Any good?

-Any .40 mags that carry more than 12 rounds?

Couple of less important (to me, right now) questions for an XD-newbie... (maybe for someone who is bored)

-What is the best way to take care of this gun's finish?
-Is the gun actually manufactured in Croatia, or USA?
-Where are parts and services replaced and performed?

Boy are you gonna get flamed. Before the "search button monitors" attack you for not doing your homework before posting, I'll help where I can.

A fine pistol at a good price. It should serve you well.

Yes. Check out Pistol-Gear (there is a link on this site) for conversion bbl's.

I can't think of anything useful. What did you have in mind?

FireSeven said:

Don't have one. I find it rediculous to pay as much for a laser sight as I did for my XD. I have seen them (I like 'em), and I've heard they perform well.

I cant help you on this one, but I'm sure there are.

I'm bored, that's why I'm replying. (you really should have tried a search for these FAQ's)

Frequent cleaning, and a light coat of good gun oil is all I use. It works for me.

From what I understand...manufactured in Croatia, imported and marketed by Springfield Armory.

Springfield Armory handles repair, sevice, warranty, etc...

Good luck.

Okay, first of all: no, you're not a retard ).

Second, a reaction: the first person to try to actually take that bayonet into combat instead of a simple knife IS a retard.

foregrip (if someone has a full-auto mod?) :twisted:
Which would be illegal in two ways... first a foregrip on a pistol is going to make it an AOW... and second, while it may be possible to make a FA XD, unless you are a C3 dealer or a government entity, you will be breaking another set of laws...

Dont encorage a noobie to break laws... its bad form :wink:

dunno? just a thought :)
How the hell would you even do that with the disconnector hump on the trigger bar and the trigger actuated striker safety. i havent heard of it being done and im not sure it is possible with the way the pistol is designed.... :? someone prove me wrong.

The glock-18 is fully automatic...how does that differ from a standard Glock...are the mechanics totally different or did they just alter a few things??

There is also a drop in mod for glocks that make them select fire (law enforcement and export only)...

But the XD and Glock are two totally different pistols...

I'm sure there would be a way to make a mod to convert the XD safely... but I don't intend on becoming a class 3 manufacturer and selling the mods to law enforcement... So my interest ends there...
