    I also own the XD 45, but have not had the problem that you stated. I looked at the youtube link. Noway am I going to do that to my pistol. If you cannot get the info here take it to a smith.

    I too own an XD45 and have never encountered this specific issue. I am not quite sure what exactly you could have done to make the slide do that. My only thoughts are that their is something wrong with the slide catch or the locking mechanism that keeps the slide on the frame when it is forward. I agree with CCRIDER, completely the wrong answer to fixing that problem.

    There's a sticky in the Information Section re that.
    Pretty common, actually.

    You can unjam it yourself a couple of diffferent ways..

    Has to do with guide rod not being in straight.

    I think I would put it in a vice with plastic jaws and press it forward instead of beating the holy crap out of it,

    Trust me, that's the only way to get it out. XD forum suggest the same thing. Once you beat it back to normal position, you pull the trigger and the slide comes off.

    Had the same thing happen to my XD40SC when I cleaned it after it's first range session. Took it back to the dealer where I had purchased it and he took a rubber mallet and smacked it 4 or 5 times before it moved forward. Made me nervous as heck, but it worked.

    You should be able to pull on the guide rod and force it back into position without beating on the slide. I've had that happen once or twice with an old Beretta, where the guide rod slips out of its channel before the pistol is fully assembled. You get the exact same kind of lockup as the XD, and the most gentle solution was to manipulate the guide rod.
