I posted this on another forum because people kept trashing the xd's finish. But, I figure this is a good reference for an XD forum

..although the finish is "ruffed" there has been no effect in the performance or operation and there has been no rusting..I am at the 5000 (now around 5500) round mark and have experienced no problems. It has been nothing but a breeze. Now, onto the pics!!!!
Larger pics are linked!

This is what happens when you forget that you have to wait to lower the strip lever..trust me, I was pissed too.

Scratching on the top on the chamber.

Scratching near the rear of the slide...yeah its looks dirty but its just CLP residue with some lint.

in front of the ejection port on the slide...its also on the sides, too.

good stuff. :)

in referrence to the people who "bash" the XD's...i asked a friend of mine at work what he'd heard about them. he said he heard good things, BUT, if he wanted to buy a polymer pistol he'd buy another glock. *shakes head in disgust*

BUT...the pictures are good. mine looks worse from the rough handling its gotten. :-D

thanks for sharing. :)

Its also nice to point out it has minimal wear on the inside mechanics even from the hot 357 sig rounds given he's not using reloads with a 125 power factor :lol:

Overall though, the XDs are something to be proud with!

I'm gonna point out something here. Looks to me like the finish on your gun is different than the stuff everyone complains about. It really looks like the Armory Kote from Springfield more than the powder crap from Croatia.

Mine was wearing off after less than a month of IWB leather carry. I would post pics, but it's in consignment right now.
