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...

Had lots of FTEs in the first ~500 rounds. Zero since.

Have you let a friend run a couple hundred rounds through it to see if they get the same FTEs?

It's safe to say you're well out of the break in period, so if there's still an issue with that wide range of ammo, send it in and get it fixed. Not a big deal.

There's good reason why people spend lots of ammo making sure the gun feeds and ejects properly. It's a common issue with all pistols and if you're unlucky enough to have one that fails, send it in for repair like everyone else does with every other brand of gun that has this problem. If this seems unreasonable, maybe revolvers are a better choice for you.

So you'd be fine taking a brand new never fired glock out of the case, putting some hydroshocks in it and carrying that as your duty or ccw without ever running it through it's paces?

If not, why? I think I know the answer.

Don't cloud the issue with your immature tirades. You have a gun with a fairly common problem among gun problems. Do what you have to to get it fixed and be done with it. I wasn't trying to push either of you into a temper tantrum. Just trying to get the point across so you'll enjoy the gun and stop complaining about it here.
