Great pics. Is the ring of wear around the outside of the barrel muzzle normal for an autoloader? I'm starting to get one already on my new pistol with only 170 rounds through it so far. I keep it oiled right there.
Yea, it's normal.
In that particular picture it looks like top right of the chamber entry is chipped (where two prongs protrude, right one is shorter). I have a similiar "issue" (I put that issue in quotes as I do not know if this is normal or not) with my XD which I'm going to contact springfield about tomorrow.
They are all like that.
my 45 tactical gets way dirty'r than that after 10000 rounds
I really appreciate all of the pics and info, this is making my decisions a little easier. I am in the market for either a XP or M&P...still undecided. I will go and have a play day soon at my local range. Hopefully I will be as satisified with the XP as you are. Thanks, BH
I'd be nervous if i says "XP" on the side though... The "XD" is the real thing...
XP is likely a Chinese knock-off...
(Here come the Croatian knock-off jokes...)
Sorry, couldn't resist!
