what are the issues with the xd?


Certified All-American Gun Nut
Welp, I've had my XDM 10mm for about 5 months, and can't seem to find any issues with it other than it chucking brass into the next county (to be expected in a 10mm with hot loads). It seems to like everything I've put in it. Even ammo loaded to light 40 S&W levels (~950 FPS with a 175gr bullet).

I would and probably will buy another XD in the future.

I would love to experience shooting an XDM in 10mm! Or maybe I wouldn't, not sure my wallet could afford it at the moment!
Mine's the 4.5" version.

It's a very pleasant gun to shoot. Accurate, and it handles recoil wonderfully. It gets a little snappy with full house loads (not bad), but moderate and light loads are pretty easy shooting. You could shoot them all day long. The only thing I've done to mind is put in a heavier recoil spring, just to help with the brass chucking issue. It'll probably keep the gun from beating itself up if I shoot a ton of hot loads too.

For $550, it's a pretty good deal. 10mm is so versatile that one gun could fit into several different roles.

Until Promag released the 25rd magazine there was nothing reliable above the 13rd factory magazines, for a 45.

I loved my XD45. I ADORE my XD 45 converted to 460 Rowland. Reliable and powerful.
