If you missed the initial impressions and my issue read this: http://www.xdtalk.com/forums/xd-m-discussion-room-xd-m/193514-picked-up-45c.html UPDATE: I have been leaving the flush mag topped off since I got the pistol Saturday. The spring is already much better than it was out of the box. I only need to apply a small stiff palm strike to seat the flush mag (topped off) into the XDM. The 1st round racks in without issue now too. The same stiff pressure is needed to release the mag also. I am sure after another few hundred rounds everything will be smooth as silk.
