I picked up a XD9 sub compact today , the slide had little finish left on it , apparently it has surface rust on the slide from being left in the case in the garage during a move for a couple of weeks and the owner cleaned all the finsih right off it with steel wool , I stripped the slide assembly all the way down and sent it to my buddy to get bead blasted . Im going to parkerize it monday and make her look new as she was used very very little and not hardly any wear other than the awful looking slide . Amazingly enough nothing else had rust on it so that was good . She also came with 2 10 rd mags , a extended mag with grip extension, factory holster, factory lock and case . $260 seemed cheap enough and about 15 minutes of my time to refinish it .
cant wait to take her out and shoot it
