The only complaint I have heard about XD's is their finish. Tripp Research redid this pistol and got it back to me within 8 business days. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to redo their XD

VERY PRETTY!.. i'm thinking of sending in my subcompact 9mm. How much was it?

The total cost was $150 plus $35 return shipping. This price included ALL metal parts
including the internals, grip safety, slide stop, take-down lever, trigger, magazine catch, etc. I communicated with him several times before committing and he was very helpful

I have the XD9 Bi tone, and i think i would like to have some of the parts you show installed... Did the cost you submited include a new slide as well? (since your original model was the all black)

thats a work of art!

The price I listed was for all metal parts on trhe gun. The only thing not refinished was the polymer frame, of course

Those are NOT new parts, they're the original parts after being coated with chrome. HTH.

that's nice looking, but don't you find the silver gives off a shinny glare in bright sunlight?
making it difficult to see the sights and also producing a tactical disadvantage?

I like the looks but personally I could never do this to any gun I may have to protect my life or someone elses life.

but for a show off gun It's pretty cool.

I'm having Virgil Tripp do my P220. 175.00 for the Matt Silver Chrome slide and to Refinish the frame.

He is good!

Actually, it is not the gun that I would use for defense. That title goes to my Springfield Loaded 1911.

As a range gun though, it is a great shooter. I have not yet had a problem with glare because I haven't been to an outside range
