Welcome to GunSkins.com. Today we’re going to install our Pistol
Skin Kit in our Reaper Black™ pattern on a Springfield XD 9mm. For this install you will need a razor knife and a heat gun. Or a blow dryer works great as well. First you need to thoroughly clean the pistol with a light duty de-greaser. Make sure to get into all of the corners and recessed areas where dirt and grease would settle. A clean gun makes for a clean install guys. We’re gonna start with the right side of
the frame of the pistol. Remove one of the pieces labeled “frame” from the Pistol Skin Kit, and place it centered on the pistol. Reposition as necessary. Use your fingers to press the material against the pistol. Apply heat to allow the material to conform to the contours of the pistol. Use heat and work the material down the along the sides of the trigger guard. Trim as necessary. Apply heat to allow the material to
conform to the contours of the pistol. Use heat and press firmly with your palm to conform the material to the texture of the pistol grip. Next we are moving on to the slide. Remove the piece labeled “slide” from the Pistol Skin Kit and place it centered on the pistol… Following the seam where a slide and the frame come together. Reposition as necessary. Work the material over the top of the slide using your fingers. Apply heat to conform the material to the front and rear sight. Trim the material where the slide and frame come together. Trim as necessary. Use the additional material for the trigger guard. Place the material… and trim as necessary. Now let’s move on to the most important step… POST HEAT, GUYS! Use a heat gun or blow dryer. Heat the pistol and press firmly with your hands. This solidifies the bond between the pistol and the Gun Skin. Spend a few minutes on this step. And that concludes our install. Thanks for watching guys!
