Default Xd customization

Slowly but surely im modifying my xd40 v10. So far ive only polished the trigger bar and today sanded the barrel "block" to almost a mirror finish. I have to wait till next week before i can get a new polishing wheel to finish the job. And also have a prp trigger kit on order. Does anyone else modify their xd's? Ive been at a loss trying to find websites, forums, etc. for more customization ideas.

Finally polished the barrel!!! I think it looks pretty sweet. Only question i may have is that now it seems like the oil i lube with just beads up on the surface rather than soaking in... Im curious if that could pose a problem ie. scratching the surface which you can see its starting to do on the top. As of today still waiting on my prp shipment. Does anyone else customize their xd's? This thread doesnt seem to be very popular

Looks good! I have been thinking about getting a prp trigger. Please let us know how easy/hard it is to install. I have not done any customization to my XD. Seems like to me you are doing about all you can to customize it. I did try a Pachymeyer(sp) grip, but I shot better without it so I returned it the next day.

Yes i remember your post jj. I didnt mean to but i started two almost identical posts, one in the diy gunsmithing and one in the xd thread. But i appreciate all the kind words from everyone. Ive just been trying to get more ideas on customization. After the trigger im going to look deeper into duracoat or something of the like because i saw an xdm with the snow digital camo and i really liked the look. Ive decide that the v10 is probably too loud for cc so im gonna make it a "pretty" range gun. Lol
