no it is not normal.....

i have an XD-9 black finish that is tight as a drum...no play whatsoever....

about 8 months ago i bought a bi-tone XD-9 and the slide to frame fit was so loose i sent it back to Springfield......

i would give them a call and send it back for fitting..

About the only pistols made that have zero play have Les Baer written on them. There is nothing wrong with a little play.

depends on how loose it is. Mine has a tiny - i mean tiny - bit of play. This is normal. If it's more than necessary for smooth operation, then I would be concerned. My guess is it's fine.

Mine also has a tiny bit of play. It works fine, and shoots accurately so as far as I'm concerned there is nothing to worry about.
