    My XD has begun to jam...

    This is the first trouble I've had with the XD. Yesterday, after putting several hundred rounds through my .40 caliber, it began jamming after every round, and not in consistent fashion. Failure to feed and a couple stovepipes have me worried!

    I thoroughly cleaned and lubricated it, and it stopped happening, but I'm concerned that this is a feature that will rear it's ugly head when I'm dumping lots of rounds. I don't know what caused it. The gun was clean when I started, incidentally, and I've used it in a similar manner for months with nary a hiccup.

    Do I need to replace something?

    maybee you put too much oil around the feed ramp, or your magazine needs cleaning.

    "Several hundred rounds"...if you're worried about using that amount of ammo in a SD situation, you're in the wrong area of town :-)

    If this is the 1st time it's happened, I'd chalk it up to a dirty gun. If it happens after 100 or so rounds, I'd look at the mags.
    We had a guy in IDPA yesterday who had some rounds he loaded up go nose dwon in the mag when he reloaded.. I don't remember if he was shooting a XD or a M&P though

    When was the last time you changed your recoil spring?

    Since cleaning seems to have corrected the problem, I wouldn't be overly concerned. If you get into a situation where you need that many rounds to stop the threat, you better have several guns accessible and have someone next to you loading mags for you.

    I haven't had a issue with my XD and I have ran 500 rounds through it at a time. I would just make sure your mags are clean as well as your gun..... if you keep having issues I would get it checked out or try new springs.
    I believe in gun control...... Thats why I use TWO hands.

    Clean the gun, clean the inside of the magazines and use some powdered graphite as lube when you reassemble the mags. Try a different magazine, try different ammo. I'd be willing to bet that your problems stem from a magazine.

    clean, check ammo, clean magazines. Then start checking your extractor, change magazines. ALso see if you can cycle thru rounds and see if the guns extracts and load properly. good luck

    Yah, I would get rid of the gun and get glock. Just kidding! I agree with many in thinking it could be the ammo. Make sure your cleaning and lubing correctly.I know you a veteran but also to much lubrication can cause issues aswell. WIsh i could help more.

    Thats what happens when you get a glock clone. I too am just kidding. I am with the others I feel it will be the mags. No one has put this one out there but what about your recoil spring. Sounds like you shoot a few rounds but you never know. I have a glock 17 from I think 1983 and I might be looking at getting a new spring for mine. Just couldn't help myself again. I really hope everything works out for you theres nothing worse than one of your favorite guns acting up

    From different magazines? Or the same one? That will tell you something, also do not gum it up too much with lubricant, just a little should work fine especially in dirty areas, but while you are firing it you should be fine adding some on occasion. Also, you should consider the ammo issue already brought up... I've ran 1000 rounds at a time through mine and never had a problem. If you find out what it is, let us know, I'm curious now.

    What is thee best way to clean mags? I've seen a bunch of articles on cleaning guns, but nohting yet on leaning mags. I've probably put several thousand rounds through my XD, using three differet mags and have never cleaned the mags.

    Do you have to take them apart, or just flush them out with solvent?

    Take off the floorplate and remove the spring and clean out any gunk that may have built up in there.
