I am going to my gun club today. I am taking a morning off, I am going to get rid of 400 .40 rounds through my OD 4" XD.

Then I am going to take the slide to a local shop where they are going to turn it over to a guy who will be chroming it for me, he charges $90.00

I will post before and after pics.

Well, post pics afterwards.

Tripp has a 10 day turn around avg, and it was only $7 to send the slide.

I droped it off at Northwest, in Redford (Wayne County). They are sending the slide to be chromed to some guy on the East Side.

They couldn't get the sights off, so they had to send it somewhere else to have the sights pressed out by somthing other than their hand held screw thing.

I should have it next week.

I have a lap top and a desk top on my desk. That mouse pad is 12"x"12 and I use both mice on it.

That is nice - If I ever get an XD, I plan to get an OD green one and then get the slide hard chromed. I had wondered what it would look like. Nice.
