I have an XDM 40. I have probably put a thousand rounds through it with maybe one fail to load. I call a fail to load when you fire the gun the slide kicks back and a bullet get stuck in such a way that it keeps the slide open a little bit. I've never had this happen until yesterday. Suddenly 3 out of 10 and I'm not exaggerating, 3 out of 10 bullets jam the gun. The only two things I can think of are that I had cleaned the pistol and put it away. Perhaps I inadvertently removed all the lubricant from it. The other thing is that maybe I loaded the magazines wrong. I use the speed loader, and sometimes if I don't nudge the nose of the cartridge down a little bit they all kind of stick up a little bit at too high of an angle. I can't imagine that all three magazines would do that.. But one never knows. Based on what I have outlined here, what would be your guest? I'm not above taking the gun into my local gun shop and dropping it off. But I thought if it was something simple enough I would solve it on my own. I'm sitting in my truck right now using voice to text and I can't remember the cleaner I use. I'm pretty sure it's like a spray can of Winchester cleaner and lubricant. I know that much, but it's a combo product. Another words not just a solvent but also a lubricant. I use Q-tips to get into the little areas comma and I checked the spring to make sure it's seated dead center and not shoved over to one side. 3 out of 10 misfires is about 26 levels below a damaged high point... So something is absolutely wrong.
