Just got back from the range with my new RAP .45c. I can honestly say that I could sell every pistol I have except for this and I would not miss a beat. This is the easiest pistol to shoot that I have ever had in my hands. Control is amazing. I fired 100 rds. of ammo from Freedom Munitions. 50 rds. 230 gr round nose new and 50 rds. 230gr XTP reman.

One thing that I noticed was that the round nose ammo fed without problem. The XTP would not feed on six rounds. And I bring this up because the exact same thing happened the last time I fired my S.A. XD MOD2 SC.45. I fired the same ammo with the same results. Needless to say I'll be trying something else along the lines of sd ammo.

The only other thing to say is the S.A. XD MOD2 SC.45 is for sale. I still can't get over this .45 being easier to shoot than my trusty P89.

duckbuster60, thanks. I'll be ordering some in a few days. It's strange, but this is the only round that I have had a problem with from Freedom.

Just got mine today. Feels great. Haven't had chance to shoot it yet. Did field strip and had a really hard time putting the guide rod/spring back in - the larger mainspring partially blocks the opening in the slide and prevents the rod from extending through without considerable effort to try to pre-compress it before installing. Should the larger spring be captured on the guide rod? It wasn't on mine when I disassembled it.

kmgr1100rt, this is not a captured unit. I called customer service about it and they said that it is normal. It just takes a little extra effort to get it back together.
