    Soaked the barrel in vinegar for a couple hours, then rubbed it with a green scotch brite pad, gave it a quick polish then hit it quick with 1000 grit paper, a quick polish then hit it with 2000 grit and then a good polish. Pictures dont really do it justice.

    Anyone ever change the sights out on your XD at home or is this best left to a gunsmith??

    I personally haven't done it. You would need a sight press to do it correctly. Really depends on if you want to invest in the proper tools.

    Not that it's surprising or anything, but quite a few 2013 SHOT videos up of the XDs 9mm.

    Looks nice! Does that add or decrease to the functionality of the barrel in any way or is it strictly for looks?

    Looks nice but it removes the rust preventive finish.

    True. But I am one of those that takes good care of my firearms so not overly concerned about rust.

    Got it in September used. The previous owner didn't care for the recoil.

    I don't think so. It's very manageable recoil. Your probably not going to want to shoot it all day, but again very manageable.
