ive been carrying my xdm compact 45 all summer and been sweating on it quite a bit in the extreme heat for wisconsin. i havent done anything to protect the exterior ive only wiped down the frame and slide rails barrel and recoil spring to keep the dust out. i havent touched the exterior with oil and no rust. the standard black xdm finish is pretty durable so far
