    Possible new carry gun

    I have only had this XD-40 SC for a couple of months and I am still evaluating it for carry. During the first 50 rounds it had 2 failures to feed. The feed ramp was polished and I now have about 400 rounds through it without any more problems. I recently got it back from Canyon Creek where the slide was refinshed with OD Fusion color and a trigger job by Rich. Most of the ammo ran through it was WWB 165 gr FMJ and also some Winchester Ranger 165 gr SXT (Talon).

    You Should be Good To Go

    You Should be Good To Go after 400 rounds with zero malfunctions.
    And your 2 initial malfunctions should not be of any concern to you now.
    You might (just for the heck of it) try shooting a few different brands of ammo (besides Winchester) just to see if it's feeding different bullet configurations correctly now that your ramp has been polished.

    Sounds like you are well OK.

    I had a coupla fluffs last night with SIG at my night IDPA shoot but that was crap Bosnian ammo - feed it good stuff and particularly +P GD's and it eats em all every time!

    nice. How is the muzzle flip with a short barrel? I shot the 4" barreled version and liked it.

    The muzzle flip is not too bad, but it is more than with the 4 inch.

    QKShooter, I intend to put a couple of hundred more different JHP's through it before I trust it.
