    Does anyone use an ultra-sonic cleaner on their XDs and if so do you have any problems?

    Kinda looking for problems related to the finish and possible damage to be aware of.

    I have a Lyman and it does a very good job on my Sig P229, but before I drop my XDs-9 in I'd like to know of any does or don'ts related to the XDs line. I'd hate to screwup my brand new pistol.

    I no longer have time to be in a hurry. The old fashion "by hand" way works just fine for me.

    I would imagine if it were going to be a problem ( cleaning a polymer framed gun )...the instructions would have that in big bold letters.

    I picked up a Chicago Ultra Sonic cleaner at Harbor Freight for $30 and used it once, took the fun out of cleaning my guns. My wife loves it, uses it to clean her jewelry.
