Hey,
I have had my 4" SA XD .40 for about a year now and I love it. I have put about 2000 rds through it and had only one problem with it. Every once in a while, the slide catch pops up and the slide stays open while im in the process of shooting with a full(sometimes half) full mag. Thats not good, if I ever have to use it. Normally it will happen every couple of times i take it out, but I just purchassed a 12nd mag and put about 120 rnds through it today and it happened probably 6 different times. I know its not from being dirty, because I clean it imacuatlly and it has done it right off the bat. I think it is the rounds hitting it or something. Please throw some ideas my way. :roll:

Who types with a lisp? Seriously? :)

Sure your thumb isn't bumping it up?

Thanks, Don- much appreciated.

FWIW, a good way to prove or disprove the "thumb hitting slide lock" theory is to just shoot the gun left-handed, and see if the problem persists.
