This is my own personal weapon. I am not that fond of the tan and black, I think it would look better if it were mostly tan with a little black accents, but that is a project for the future. The sure fire, I picked up at the last gun show that I went to, it is a bright little light, I find myself slipping it into my pocket when I leave the house.

I have that same light in OD....great light! Crappy battery life though. If you want another I'd recommend bass pro....not sure what you paid for it but last one I saw at a gun show was $60 and bass pro usually has them for $40(less if they've got a sale on) and seen em for $25 and $30 on google shopping. I want to pick up a few more whenever I have the cash, need one for my truck, bedside, one to carry and one just in case I have a light mount to fill.

surefire lights are not known for great battery life. Its hard to make a light that will blind someone and have good battery life. My E2 defender will last 15-20 min lol the lens will be hot enough to fry eggs on. my guardian runs on 6 of those batteries and with the high power bulb in it those get drained in about 30 min. The LED version are alot easier on batteries

So far it has lasted 3 weeks, but i only use it a few seconds at a time, the push button on the back is handy. I only paid 30 bucks for it, the vendor had them all marked that at that price, as a matter of fact, I shopped around, and he had the lowest price.

Thats sort of what I was thinking of doing to it, next time I have the duracoat stuff out, not sure when that will be. I think it will turn out ok, doing the slide was just a test to see how well it will hold up.

No it is the service model, first gun I ever bought. I bought it before everyone jumped on the bandwagon. That was back when if it wasnt a glock, then most people would not buy it.

It takes about 3 hours, longgun. Me and Caleb C will be glad to do it for you, we have started a business doing this. On a scale of one to ten, its about a 5. Hammer told me if we advertised on the forum, that we should over a discount.

Wow! That is a good bit away from us. Would you be comfortable shipping it, or are you ever near I20? We both live in this area, I think you cannot ship guns without a ffl, maybe you could ship us the pieces you wanted to be legal and all.

Great looking XD, I personally like the Tan/Black Combo, how has it worn so far?, is it flaking or rubbing anywhere?
