    Default Hand gun inspection

    I received a Springfield XDm 45 in a trade. I would like to get it checked out and cleaned. Suggestions in the South ANC area.

    Just use your owners manual or go online to download one and clean it yourself. Its actually pretty easy once you take it apart the first time or two. Best way to check it out is to take a box of shells and visit a local range

    Agree with try it yourself and learn the workings. A good gun shop won't charge you any extra if brought to them apart in a box than if it showed up together.At one time I got lots of box guns in and to make the person feel better I would say just because you took it apart and saved me time don't mean a cheaper price.
    Now left only to be a turd in the forrest and the circle will be complete.Use me as I have used you

    If you just want someone to have a look that everything is where it should be any reputable gun shop should be happy to do that in hope of having you as a continuing customer. If you suspect something is wrong with it your Springfield has a lifetime warrantee and will inspect/repair it for free other than the shipping.

     
    As far as cleaning it if you plan to keep the gun you should learn to do its upkeep yourself. It isnít hard and Iíll include a couple links below. If you donít want to buy the tools because you just wanting to get it cleaned up to sell Iíd advise you to go see Ken at Wild West Guns, he is always buying and deals fair even if he is from Jersey.

    No offense but if you bought a gun that you cannot strip and clean you probably can't shoot it either.
    Is there nothing so sacred on this earth that you aren't willing to kill or die for?
