    I just got the XD-9 subcompact. Its the first gun I have ever owned. I read the manual, and got field stripping it down. but when I reassemble it, it comes up cocked. Is that right? or did I miss a step. The book gives good take down instructions, but no reassembly. Am I just supposed to pull the trigger to uncock it? Just trying to get fully comfortable before I start playing with bullets :noes:

    I had the same gun, yes it does reassembled ready to fire. I got rid of it because there really was no easy way to decock it without pulling the trigger

    Yup it's supposed to be like that. And dry firing it is perfectly safe for it... so there's no problem. Congrats on the new gun... you're going to love it.

    Just as any other shrouded hammer model without a decocker, that's the design. They are supposed to be dry fired, but since I keep mine loaded, as soon as they are reassembled, in goes a mag and a round is chambered. :)

    BTW, congrats on your new XDSC. You can find good accessories for it at www.pistol-gear.com
    The owner is an avid XD shooter and they ship everything priority mail so 2 days and it's there at your door. I use them for all my goodies for both my XDs. Just remember one thing about XDs, the finish is like a parkerized or blued finish, not like the Glock's Tennifer, so treat it as you would any other blued/parkerized gun.

    call up SA and explain to them that you are not happy with the finish (make up some bs about chronic rusting), if you bicker hard enough they'll even pay for shipping, but at any rate, they'll have you ship it back with a letter stating that you are not happy with the finish, they will refinish it, then send it back to you. whole process takes about 2-3 weeks, but its very much worth it.
