    Took Dremel to my XD!!!!

    I've been staring at my XD9SC for a while... I decided it's past it's "pretty" lifespan, and I decided to start tinkering.

    Off with the squared trigger guard!

    It was really easy. Put the frame in a vice under a bright light. Stuck a moderate grit "barrel" on the Dremel, and started slowly. I love it... I just contured it to match the inside curve, and it looks great. Still a little "striped" from the dremel, but I will sand it later to clean it up.

    Pics coming... digital cam went off the roof of the truck...

    I take it you did not sell or is this a different XD9SC?

    I kept it, and sold the XD45 Compact Tactical.

    I shot the XD45 Compact and the XD9SC head-to-head, in defensive drills. The XD9SC won hands down. Faster, and more accurate with speed. There's just too much flip in the short/light 45. After months of research, I feel that the 9mm is plenty for defense, and I still have my XD45 4" Service with all the work done, for winter carry and range work. It was nice to have 3 XDs, but I wasn't shooting them all. The 4" 45 is just as accurate as the 5". Ragged hole accurate. The trigger work has MUCH more to do with accuracy, than an inch of barrel.

    Now, the XD9SC is wearing a new Armalser RSS... We'll see how that works. Pretty good so far, after some install issues...

    Huh? Did you put the grip of the compact 45 on the tactical slide and sell it that way?

    I owned:
    XD9SC
    XD45 Service

    I bought:
    XD45 Compact Tactical (5" w/ short grip)

    I swapped the frames on the 45s (they are interchangable), giving me:
    XD9SC
    XD45 Compact (4", Short Frame)
    XD45 Tactical (5", Full Frame)

    I tested, decided my 4" was just as accurate as the 5", and that the XD9SC was a superior (in my opinion) CCW. So I resold the XD45 Compact/Tactical.

    Now I'm back where I was...

    Confused yet?

    Yes. Especially since I was under the impression the .45 compact only came with the 4" barrel. I just checked SA's web site, and no Tactical .45 with the compact grip is listed either.

    I think someone needs to practice his Google-Fu.

    Yeah, that's just what I need; more time on the computer. If I do that, I'd better start Googling "Divorce Attorneys".
