Not very often. I don't dryfire either but to give piece of mind I got the PRP pin. No more worries. Plus they are cheap and easy to install.

Get the roll punches from PRP while you are at it. They are very helpful for routine disassembly. Dry practice away. You'll be a better shooter. I would also recommend the PRP drop in trigger. It really is a worthy upgrade. Love mine. So glad I did it.

I have not replaced factory one yet it still is on inmaculate condition after about 300 rounds or so... And about the same on dry firing it. I wonder if SA has recently beefed up the pin as this one seems pretty robust... It is still single layer, but it is very thick.

About 8k rounds on my factory pin. I don't shot or dry fire this gun much anymore but I did use snap caps when I was dry firing often.

+1 on all of the above. You will be amazed at how much better your shooting will be. There are a lot of detailed write-ups, including DIY videos, on this. Not cheap, but you still get more than you pay for.

My first total pistol break down on XDM i bent mine which led to malfunctions and was up front an honest with springfield about me being a RAtard and they replaced for free:) Which is why springfield is the best customer service i have ever delt with EVER!!! But like others said PRP is the place to go.
