    thought this would be fun to see how much you shoot your xd's. in my service model 40 i have 4230 and in my .40sc i have approx 1100rds.
    thanks.

    btw if you had any breakages, what was the approximate rd count when it happened?

    i ask because my xd service broke at the 4230rd mark. thanks again.

    i am doing this on a few forums so that way i get a good overall view of the owners and rd counts, breakages and etc. i would like to compile them and see what i come up with!thanks!

    Well, before I traded in my XD45Tac, I had around 2500rnds through it. About 1/3 to 1/2 of that factory ammo, the rest was reloads.

    I have about 2500 through a XD-9 subcompact, about 50% factory and about 1100 through my XD 45 Service, 50 factory, no problems with either one.

    My wife has a XD9SC that we have around 1500rds thru. 1000 of those are 115gr aluminum cased blazers. The rest are 127gr +p+ Rangers. I have a XD45 Tactical that has right at 3000 thru it. 90% of them have been 230gr blazers and the rest have been a mixture of 230gr handloads and Georgia Arms 230gr Gold Dots. Neither one has given us a seconds trouble. Btw, my brother bought a XD45 service the same day I bought my tactical and it is around 1500rds without a problem.

    Mine 4" XD 40 just broke over the weekend @ about the 5000 round mark, mostly hand loads. The trigger mecanism broke some where inside, I can't get it apart to see what it is. I'm not very happy. Atleast it was on the range and not when I needed it to function.

    XD9 Service Model

    My XD9 Service Model was imported in 2001. I bought it used that same year and have put over 8000 rounds thru the tube since then, mostly Blazer and WWB. I never had any function or rust issues with the pistol. I recently sent it in to Springfield to have the locking block replaced - it finally developed the hairline crack I had read about. They replaced the locking block, all of the pins and springs, and also refinished the whole thing - grip safety, trigger, magazine releases, etc. at no cost to me whatsoever. They paid shipping both ways and had it back to me in about 2 weeks. I'm a happy camper.

    No possum, there isn't anything to see, nothing as drastic as your pistol. The trigger stayed back, didn't rebound forward after the shot. The trigger was pushed forward and pulled again (empty gun) it won't engauge anything. Locked the slide back, can't see anything, can't get it apart to see anything eather. It's headed back as soon as I can get somewhere to pick up FedEx.

    I'm also sending back 2 magazines I have that don't work very well, they don't feed about 1/3 of the time.

    I'll let you know how things progress.

    I acquired my XD-40 Tactical back in July of 2002. According to SA, it was part of the first batch of Tacticals brought into this country. Even before firing the first round through it, it had to go back to SA for a slide refinish, as parts of the factory finish had worn completely down to bare metal from just rubbing against the insides of the hard plastic storage case. It subsequently had to go back to SA two more times in succession as they didn't quite do a good job on the refinish. The third time was the charm, and the finish was flawless (though just as fragile as the original factory finish, as it has started wearing off from just normal handling).

    However, the gun was--and continues to be--absolutely reliable and freakishly accurate with my subsonic 155 gr. handloads. I stopped counting at around the 25,000 round mark, and cannot recall the gun ever jamming.

    The only problem I've had with it (aside from the slide finish) was a crack that appeared in the locking block a couple of years back. This was a fairly common problem with older XDs that had high round counts. I sent SA the cracked locking block and they mailed me a new one within days.

    Here's an image of my XD-40 Tactical, taken about a year ago:
