    I can't believe that if there was something wrong with the slide rails (warping, etc), you wouldn't have noticed it when disassembling the gun for cleaning. It would be stiff to remove, or stuck on the gun entirely. I’m not sure how possible it is for slide rails to warp on a polymer gun, but would imagine it’s quite difficult. Did you notice anything wrong when removing the slide?

    Are you saying it stuck in the locked back position, or that it is in battery and is stuck there?

    If it is in battery, it sounds like a part behind the grip safety might have broken so that the pistol doesn't recognize that you're pushing the grip safety in.

    What ever the problem, sounds like its time for a trip to Springfield.:(

    Having to push the grip safety in to rack the slide is about the only thing I don't like about the XD - other than the fact that it is one UGLY pistol.

    You misspelled SIG. ;)

    To the OP: I hope you can get it fixed with little drama. That's got to be a nightmare. :mad:

    Springfield has excellent customer service. When my ported XD 9 broke, I had a new one within a couple of weeks, they paid all the shipping, and I got two extra mags out of it.

    Ditto on SA service. They will fix it and probably not charge you a thing.

    +1 time to buy a GLOCK. Can't comment on GLOCK customer service because I've never had to use it.

    Did you put the recoil spring guide in backwards or not in the notch?

    No I meant GLOCK!!!:evil:

    Anyways, johncolo were you able to fix it? Do you have pictures? I'd like to see the dilemma. If the slide is seriously stuck, and you can't manually loosen it with all your might; then it's time to take a trip to the 'smith.

    Check to see if you developed a crack in the frame....It's happened to me, but not with your model....A slight crack/split will hinder the slide movement....Remove grips & check it carefully....

    A similar thing happened to my M&P 9mm full size. The recoil spring slipped off the guide just enough to jam the slide and prevent it from moving on the frame. I ended up removing the roll pins that hold the trigger assy. and trigger block in place, and lifted the slide with the attached assys. off, removed the spring and reinstalled correctly, replaced the roll pins, and slid it all back together. Not sure of the takedown procedures of the XD. And I'm still considering the 5" bi-tone in .45 ACP, since the .45 M&P still isn't available.

    If you put the recoil spring assembly back in just a little off center (so it's not fully popped into place) or backwards it will lock up like that. People seem to do that often. There's always a thread popping up on xdtalk about it. I've never done it to mine but I can see how easy it would be to do.

    Twice when my husband was cleaning his XD he put that release lever in the down position (the one you push up to take the gun apart) because it was in his way. When he put the slide back on he forgot to put the lever up and the slide hung up about 3/4" past the rear of the frame. The hang up seems to be on the right hand side of the gun - either the trigger mechanism or a piece right next to it. He used a small sharp pin-like tool to reach in there from the back about 3/4" and release it. Slide came off, put the lever in the up position and everything went back together just fine. Sorry I don't know all the technical names but I hope this helps.

    Glad to hear SA has good customer service. We've just had a very unpleasant Taurus revolver incident - Taurus was NOT helpful but Sportsmans Warehouse was great. They made the deal right and we're now very happy with a S&W Classic 629 but I digress....

    I would only take a Glock if one was given to me, and then I'd sell it for another Springfield. Has to be owner error.
