Does anyone know if there is an XD/XDM aromrers course available. If so, how do I find a course.
True....I have had my XD down twice...first time, just to see how it all worked, and the second time to do a good cleaning...I like to take my handguns down to the basic parts every two/three years and clean them and check for any wear so I can replace parts before it is an issue. I have been to the SIG and Smith school. I think learning to break a gun all the way down from a factory rep is better than trying to learn it myself by trial and error.
So I ended up taking this course in August. Basically it was a guided full disassembly and assembly of the xd/xdm. We did not disassemble the grip safety or the magazine release. These are allot of trouble to re-install. We also spoke a little bit about diagnosing jams, and trigger upgrades. Frontsight sees several hundred xd's come thru their school every week. They also maintain a fleet of rental firearms which include allot of xd's. They are very big fans of the powder river easy drop in trigger kit over anything from Springer.I'll let you know in July. Front Sight has a course formembers.
