    And a couple of things make me :ugh: but overall I liked it.

    I am not used to the USA type trigger - has some play - and until I figured this out I couldn't shoot for shit. My first 16 rounds at 25" I only landed 2 on the small target :ugh:

    Once I figured it out it was much better.

    The other thing are the sights - IMO they suck serious ass. And seeing as I didn't do my research it seems I am kind of fucked since changing sights on an XD seems to be a gigantic pain in the ass.

    It felt great though and I got back on target really quickly.

    However, I shot much better with my friend's Kimber :o

    It's not a huge PITA I don't think. My local place does it for free.

    My local place refuses to touch them, and these are the same people that swapped my Sig sights (also notoriously PITA) for free.

    The claimed to have broken several sets of Mepros trying to get them into an XD and at one point broke whatever tool it was they use to push them in. So if you're getting your's installed for free, that's a sweet deal.

    were you shooting from reset? or full travel?

    while i do not own any XD's, i have shot several and while i like my glocks more, the XD is a damn nice pistol.

    From the ready.

    I just don't like the sights - to hit something I have to cover it up fully with the sights which seems weird to me.

    Even my friend didn't like them but we both liked the gun itself.

    i felt that way with the 1 and only M&P9 i have gotten to fire.

    oh well, i reckon you can either get some new sights or just learn how to compensate. :hsd:

    You might wanna try different ammo. My gun's POI changes from POA to 6o clock depending on the ammo.

    Installing sights on an XD isn't a big deal, it's getting the factory ones off. Those Croatians love their hydraulic press.... The newer XD's aren't as bad as older ones so the M may not be too bad.
