I had the spring come loose on the trigger, but it was my fault.
I tried jammin a q-tip to clean where it didn't want to fit.
ajames had it fixed in 10 min. I just didn't know how to fix it was the only problem.
Zero other problems whatsoever....other than payin too much attention instead of the g/f!
I said no problems but that is not totally true. After a measily 6500 rounds in six months, the recoil spring I purchased with my Don's rod wore out! :shock: Can you believe it!? I had to spend a whole $8 to buy a new one. :wink:
Overall, this is a very bad gun. It forces me to continue to buy huge quantities of ammo for it which it spits out without a hiccup. It is also a dangerous gun as I often have bugs fly into my mouth when firing it. I suspect that may have something to do with the s__t eating grin I am always wearing at the range. :mrgreen:
After about 2,500 rounds through my XD9 service, my back sight came loose and would slide from side to side. But lately I've been practicing shooting from 15 yards with a straight out 2 hand hold without looking at the sights at all. For a potential early morning encounter in my dark hallway - we've lately had several "home invasion robberies" in this bedroom town just east of Sacramento. I have been surprised how quickly I was able to group most of my shots within a nice 6" circle around the mid-chest area without worrying about the sights. I called SA and they said that they'd fix the sight free or install my TFOs for $50. Today I sent it to Rich at Canyon Creek to install TruGlo TFOs (he does it for $40 front and rear), do a trigger job, polish the feed ramp, smooth the trigger face, and give it one of his wicked fusion finish jobs. I think after it comes back, my only issue will then be my wife's jealousy.
