Springfield XDs Lions Finish

One of our favorite customers came into the shop looking to customize his plain jane Springfield XDs. It had been his carry gun for a while and he had been growing tired of the lack of originality a black on black gun offered. The only logical step for him was to have us build him a Detroit Lions gun!

We added in a trigger spring kit which drastically improved his trigger pull first, then we went to work with the aesthetics of the gun. All of the writing on the slide was milled off in order to give the gun a cleaner look. We then went to work on the painting. A blue slide with the Lions motto “Defend The Den” in black text really made the gun pop! To finish it off we painted some of the frame and trigger silver, another of the Lions signature colors, and also gave the barrel hood a high polish for some contrast.
