Is there any procedure for an XD function check?

I can think of a few, but I'm sure there are more.



Press grip safety and press trigger, but not trigger safety. Should not fire.

Press trigger, but not grip safety. Should not fire.

Try to rack slide without pressing grip safety. Should not rack.

Press slide slightly out of battery, press grip safety, and pull trigger. Should not fire.

Press grip safety and hold trigger. Rack slide. Should not fire. What about checking the trigger reset?

I suppose you could check that the slide stop catches with an empty magazine, but that's not entirely safety related- or is it?



Of course, gun should be unloaded, four rules, don't shoot yer eye out, etc.

Is there anything else?

After a dryfire, continue to hold the trigger. Then, continue to let it go forward. You should hear it reset before it gets too far.

^ It won't truly reset unless you rack the slide while holding the trigger back, but yes, that is an important test.

You're right. I hold it and rack again all the time, but forgot to mention it. Thanks for pointing that out.
