XD9 FTE, potential WWB link

Howdy y'all.

Got my XD about a month ago and have taken it shooting weekly. For my first outing, I put 500 rounds of Rem UMC through it without issue. Cleaned, lubed, and went back a week later with 250 rounds of WWB and got a handful of FTEs. Suspected my cleaning job (this is my first gun), so I gussied it up with much vigor, and took it back a week later with 300 rounds of WWB --- got a slightly larger handful of FTEs. My shooting partner suggested it might be a bad mag, so we marked 'em, gave the XD the ol' once over, and went back to the range a week later (today) with 200 rounds of WWB --- got even more FTEs, spread across two mags, with one mag having 3 FTEs during the course of fire.

Yeah, damn.

Anyway, we're going back tomorrow with both some UMC and WWB in hand for testing. Details as they develop...

Sounds like an extractor or case rim problem

As xd40fun mentioned, the cost of shipping back to SA is not cheap, try running some more ammo thru it and see what you get.

Let us know what else happens.

If the extractor is bad, Forum member "DON" is looking for bad used ones for research and study.
If it is broke send it in it was cheap to send mine less than 25 ups ground and SA reimbersed me 8)
I had finish issue not rust just worn severely
I would check canyon-creek or Don :shock: Seem to be the only guy smart enough to have thought that far ahead 8)
How about $250 shipped :wink:
