So, I only have had the xds 45 for a few weeks now and already it is showing some brass colored scratches near the muzzle on the right side???

Im pissed!! I can only think of one thing....the holster. It makes sense, the holster comes in contact with the right side as I holster it, dragging the side where the scratches are!! Ugghh!! I cant stand messing up something new and expensive right away!

Ok, Im calm now.

Anyway, I called Springfield Armory and was assured that the scratches should come off with a bit of oil or solvent.

I realized that what was happening was not the holster but the brass rivets on my jeans were scratching my gun!!

If it doesn't have scratches you're not shooting it enough. :camo:

The finish is wearing very slightly off the muzzle end and on a few high points on my XD 9 sc. As it has been my daily CC for almost 5 years, I certainly can't complain.

I confirmed that what was causing it was the brass rivet on my jean pocket. It rubbed right out with a bit of Hoppes and a q-tip. Problem solved. I touched it up with a silicon rag and it looks great!

The scratches you see are actually the brass from the rivets. Its hard to put a scratch on these guns because of the oxidizing process. It actually leaves whatever comes in contact with it on the surface instated of scratching it.
