    I was thinking this would be an easier solution rather than researching the dozens of threads for updates. There are a couple guns that have come back from Springfield for repairs or issues already. So, lets keep it simple to educate everyone. If you sent your XDS in for repair, please list what the issue or malfunction was, and Springfield's diagnosis. This should make it easier to give everyone a "feel" for what one can expect with similar issues, and cut down on speculation. Again, lets keep it clean and simple. Only guns that were sent to Springfield!!!

    I think I experienced lime 13 various failures. Returned with the comment that it was inspected with no issues found. Test fired "extensively with three brands of ammo". No failures of any kind.

    I think you're mixed up. I was asking ' Esquilax ' what the problem was with his XDS. I know you don't have any problems. ;)

    After proper lubing and around 320 rounds, I had about 10 each of high primer strikes and failures to return to battery. Also one bolt-over-base malfunction.

    My XDS ran flawless for the first 400 rounds. Then during the next 600 there were 25 failure to eject / double feeds.

    Let's have a look at the photos:

    Empty case in the chamber, new round smashed up against it holding the slide open.

    Again.

    And again...

    All malfunctions happened after the first 40-50 rounds of a range session. Springfield suspects I might have a weak extractor and asked me to send it in for repair.

    This is what mine did. I just called a failure to feed. What causes this? I was blaming limp wristing.
