    Field Strip XD Tactical

    My manual says to be careful when field strippin the 5" Tac because it doesnt have a captive recoil system. Does that mean it might go "sproing" and fall apart on me?

    No, the spring does extend past the rod in the center as your pulling it out which gave me a scare but it was no problem to put it back. Whew!

    I don't think it'll "fall apart" on you, it's just that it has a different spring/quide rod setup. Usually, if you hadn;e it properly while disassembling, the rod and spring will stay in place (although under tension).

    Go slow and easy, and if it does "spriong" on you, be sure to watch where it goes..



    **Ninja Edit - You beat me to the post....I see above you got it under control..good work.

    I hope you remembered to unload the washer, first so that it wouldn't go off. lol
