    Handgun Reliability Poll - Springfield XD series

    OK, since reliability is arguably the most important consideration in a defensive handgun, I'd like to conduct a poll.

    Here are the ground rules:

    You must have personally owned a firearm(s) made by the manufacturer in question.

    You yourself must have experienced the malfunction, if any.

    Malfunctions due to dud ammo are not counted, but the inability of the gun to digest a particular type of ammo is counted as one malfunction.

    Malfunctions are counted even if the manufacturer or a gunsmith later fixed the issue.

    Recalls are not counted, unless you yourself experienced a functional issue related to the recall.

    If you own several handguns from the same maker, just add up the total of any malfunctions you may have had.

    Thanks for participating!
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    XD40 with, oh, thousands of rounds through it. The only failures have been my handloads, related to seating depth.

    XDM 9mm, just shy of 2K rounds, not so much as a stifled belch.

    I have shot thousands of rounds through every size XD, and I have never had a failure...never.

    Current carry gun is an XD9 sub-compact.

    XD45 Service. Had one fail to feed when I first got it. Was within the first 500 rounds using Federal HST ammo.

    Not one failure since.

    It doen't meet the rules of the post exactly, but I have to share it. I have personally seen two compensated / ported XDs with catastrophic slide failures. Both cracked just behind the front sight, one failed to function, the other was still able to fire and the owner only brought it to me because he couldn't see the front sight anymore due to a piece of the slide sticking up. I took a pic of it and posted it and got a few pictures of the same thing from others. I would not own any ported XD. We have several standard XD rentals where I work, the 9mm compact is superbly accurate and a personal favorite. While every gun (especially rentals) gets dirty enough to jam, the standard XDs are fine pistols. The "V10"s, not so much.
