So a question for those of you with pistol cans. Im running a xdm .45 4.5" with a barsto extended/threaded barrel with a gemtech blackside 45 can. the gun gun runs flawless unsupressed but with the can its runs pretty poorly. sometimes it wont pick up a new round after cycling and I have to rerack, sometimes it locks back with rounds in the mag still, and occasionally it halfway picks up a new round and smashes the round back into the case causing me to clear it. all in all just doesn't run very good. rarely I can get through a full mag without issue. my understanding is that with a can my backpressure should increase so i would think that it wouldn't short stroke the cycle of the action. my gun has aprx 6K rounds through it and i just ordered new recoil and mag springs to see if there just worn out and not feeding/cycling properly. this happens with various ammo types as well. any ideas would be appreciated.

Boosters help some guns cycle better.

Not all.

Some guns do better with suppressors due to their fixed barrel design (which the XD does not have).

That's weird, mine works great all the time. Is the can set up for a pistol without a fixed barrel?

I have a SilencerCo Osprey .45 that I run on my XD service (9mm), an XDM 4.5" (.40), and a parkerized Loaded 1911 (.45). All of them have Storm Lake threaded barrels. I have the silencer piston for each caliber and switch it depending on what I'm shooting.

With my SiCo, I haven't had a single issue. All guns cycle properly, feed properly and so on. Have shot it wet too using wire pulling gel but it makes a mess.

Does it run no suppressor with threaded barrel?

Locking open is almost assuredly you bumping slide stop

Safety is a momentary choice. Prior performance and certification are completely irrelevant.

sorry guys ive been gone for a few days and couldn't respond to my original post. like I said originally, the can is a gemtech blackside 45 which uses there LID device (piston thing). after the number of rounds ive put though this particular gun I feel pretty confident that it isn't shooter error that's causing any of the issues so im leaning more towards something mechanical as the culprit. I just installed new mag springs and recoil spring so ill see how that affects my performance this weekend.

Range report update. Ran my xdm today with new a recoil spring and new mag springs and I couldn't be happier. gun ran flawlessly with and without suppressor. Im super stoked about such a quick cheap solution. Lesson learned; change springs in handguns on semi regular basis.

Did you read the final response by the OP how he alleviated the problem?

Start there.
