Welcome to the XD Forum shooter55 !!

Which Springfield XD do you own....?!
I own a few but I'm asking about the new springfield XD_S 45.

I own two of those and a few springer xd's xdm's and 1911's.

But the new XD_S 45 is what my thread is about.

Did you experience some kind of problem with your XDs that prompted this poll....?!
No I have two of them and they have both been flawless for a few thousand rds so far.
I never had a failure with either but something did go wrong with a striker assembly, It got stuck in the fired postion and I could not get it out of the gun, I had to tap it out with a plastic punch.
I tried the striker from the other gun and it was fine so springfield has another striker assembly on it's way. But gun never failed.

I have heard a lot of neg reports on these guns so thats the reason for the poll just want to know how these little guns are doing.


I like it I think they great little guns.

Finally got a chance to shoot mine and put about 30 rds thru it with no problems. It also carries concealed very well.

I have not had any problems with my bi-tone XDS. It likes factory ammo and my reloads. I did buy 2 of the 7 rounds magazines for the extra gripping length. Got about 100 rounds thru it now and carry it some in a Theiss IWB horsehide holster. It is a comfortable set up for me.

I haven't seen a lot of posts about problems with the XDS ad if you have fired a few thousand rds your hand must be in need of icing down. :confused:

7 rd problem

Hey everyone,

Anyone know why I might be having problems chambering 45 rounds in a brand new XDS? It's happening on the 7 rd mag only. The 5 rounders are ok so far. I'm using Winchester full metal jackets. It's happening when I go to rack that first round in every time..... And yes I tried different rounds in the box. Help anyone?????

No I don't think the recoil is bad at all I've really have not had any discomfort.
I put 2 or 300 rds a range trip with no problem as far as the hand pain or anything.

Maybe some others could comment on that subject.

Place the mag in with the slide back and use the slide stop to rack the first round and see how that works. That is what springfield recommends.
let us know if that works.

I have out the mag in with the slide racke back an pressed the slide release button on the side. That was the first jam. After I cleared that round, I thought I would cycle the remaining six ( I didn't shoot, just manually ejected each round by pulling the slide to the rear) and at least every other one Jammed or the brass on the edge I the round would catch on different parts of the chamber. Any other ideas?

How many rds have you shot thru it?
I know one other guy I met and he lubed the gun with oil not grease really heavy and the problem went away after a couple hundred rds.

However he still keeps it oiled alot all the time.
I keep mine pretty wet also and have never had a problem.
Take the mags apart and clean them I clean mine after ever range trip if I shoot more then 100 rds. It only takes a minute.
good luke.
I think these are good guns don't give up on it.
Have you called springfield yet? If not try that to.

It's a pretty small gun with a short cycle and regardless of what a lot of people think it needs a little different treatment.
