"They" can say anything they want (and usually do..)
I have owned my XDM40 since July and have put about 2000 rounds
thru it... The ONLY problem I had, was a few bad rounds of Atlanta Arms
ammo... WWB, America Eagle (Federal), Georgia Arms and my current favorite - Gunn Ammo... all flew down range flawlessly.
It is one of my 2 regular EDC's. The fit and finish are as good today,
yes I am looking at it right now... as they were the day I bought it.
I am sorry to say it has been dropped - and didn't shatter or go off magically.. It has been wet (although not fired til cleaned and dry) and
it still works perfectly.
The .45 is no my list of "to gets"...
THAT is what I say...
