    I am having some reall issues with my XD45. Shells keep jamming in the slide...or they won't pop out of the barrel...I never had any problems with my Colt Commander...the one I traded in to get my XD. But now after having shot only 400 or so rounds...and having over 12 malfunctions...I'm seriously thinking of going back to the reliable COLT.

    Unless someone can tell me of some ammunition that does not lock up?


    Also reading alot about this happening to other people as well...anyone givin' up on the XD yet?

    What are you shooting with??? I have read(on this site), that some XD's are very picky about what you run through them. I have been using WWB, since I first bought it and have had no problems.


    If it has happend with many different brands try giving SA a call, put some of that lifetime warranty to use ;) .

    check the top of this thread....the Winchester white box ammo from walmart is either not ejecting from the barrel or it catches in the slide.

    The only thing I won't shoot through mine is Blazer Alum. We had some problems with that in my wife's SC9. I've shot Blazer Brass, WWB, Remington, Federals and another CCI brand I can't think of. No problems.

    I had some Failure to Loads on Sunday. The more I think about it, the more it might have been me. I had shot a lot that day and my problems didn't start until the last 50 rounds. Think I might have been tired and started to limp wrist a little.

    Just another reason (excuse) to go to the range.

    ;)

    So far the best goups and a Rasom Rest has been Federal Premium Hydrashock 165 gr. (2.7 inches) at 25 yards. Extremly low recoil, so double taps are easy upto 15 yards!

    I've never had any problems with mine. I suspect you have another issue other than ammo. I agree w/ contacting SA in short order after you have tried some other ammo and technique. Let us know after you sort things out. Good luck.

    So far my XD-45's function fine with WWB and Blazer aluminum. Don't know what to say, none of my Xd's have been picky about any ammo.:-?
