    Floor models more reliable NIB?

    When I bought my XDsc, I bought the floor model because it was $20 cheaper. At first I was disappointed because it had significant wear on the slide due to it being racked probably 200-300 times (at least) by customers. I ended up keeping it and have been pleased ever since due to the fact that i havent had a single malfunction in 800 rounds.

    My theory is as follows; Im wondering if the repeated racking of the action served as a "break in" and thus added to its flawless function. Its the only pistol I own and have no other support for this theory, hence this thread.

    My USPc was malfunction free for the first 1400 rounds, and my Glock 21's been utterly reliable (except when I limp wristed it) for 600. Modern firearms from quality manufacturers seem to be pretty reliable right out of the box.
