He hasn't for quite some time, but he's on the verge of putting them to market again.

I've been in Dan Coonan's shot a couple of times and had his former head gunsmith give my Model B a little once-over. I've even let him try out some of my "full power" reloads.

Todd, if you're really into the XD, you can get "high cap" mags for the XD9. Dunno if anything's changed on the models, but it used to be that the 10-rd .40 mags (since only 10-rd mags are not unsafe in Cali) would hold 15 of 9mm.

I have a friend that has the multi-tool for the barrel nut and the buffer tube and the best thing I borrowed from him is a plastic block that holds and upper in a vise so you can tighten the barrel nut.

I plan to buy both for myself and I couldn't have done my project if I didn't borrow his.

You mean gas tube. The buffer tube attaches to the lower at the rear (it's what the stock covers) and doesn't require any special tool.

I was actually referring to the buffer, since it isn't a normal nut but more like the nuts under the triple that hold the steering stem stem on the bike. You could certainly tighten it without a special tool but no chance of marring anything with one.

The gas block was already on the barrel and the gas tube is just held by a roll pin so I didn't use anything special for that.

Hey you know the name for it! The tool was handy for that. I guess both the Rock River M4 style stocks I've bought have had a castle nut.

Yeah, collapsible stocks tend to have castle nuts on the buffer tube for alignment purposes. Fixed stocks don't. You just screw the buffer tube all the way on and use a screw to attach the stock to the tube.

So, do you have to use a special tool to tighten yours?

I'm the same way with my P85. it was a gift so I'll never part with it but the thing is a freaking boat anchor and I can't shoot too well with it. I've done better with nearly every other handgun I've had the opportunity to shoot.

That .22 looks like a ray-gun. It's cool. Any plans to put a sight on it? I want more .22s. I've got a 22-45 and the front sight post keeps coming loose.
