Default how to keep XDM from jamming

Anyone here know how to keep XDM 40s&w from jamming when chambering speratically? Springfield evidently dont otherwise I would of fixed it when I rma it to them for that problem.
It binds the round between the chamber and the bolt.
I thought about the limp wrist but my smith and glock never jam.
Ive tried other ammo, magazines, cussing it and even praising it when it didnt jam.
Ive never seen a pistol like this and hope no one else has one.
Ive even considered buying another one to see if they were all junk or just mine but Im not about to fill Springfield pockets full of money when they are selling substandard firearms.
I wonder if Croacia is a branch of Norinco firearms?

LadyM was almost right but the cure is S&W M&P

I expect some XD owners will be along to provide other options for making that XD load properly, it's a popular pistol so I bet there is an easy fix.

It could be a myriad of problems. I would take the firearm to a qualified gunsmith and have him/her take a look at it.

I'm sorry to hear about your problems. My XD is running problem free and I've put about 500 rounds downrange so far (no jams, or light primer strikes whatsoever).

I do not have any experience with the XDM at this point. It could be a problem that Springfield needs to iron out being that it's a new model and all.

Local department is shooting several firearms while they consider moving away from Glock 22 because of the accessory rail issues. From my understanding they are leaning towards the XD(m) as their choice, so I can't imagine it is giving them trouble (especially since the Smith M&P has a lower price).

If you have issues with the gun I would continue to send it back to Springfield (or see if they have an armorer locally they will endorse), and keep sending it back until it works or they offer you another pistol.

I can understand why this experience might sap your confidence in the piece. Good luck, let us know how it turns out.

The best way to keep an XD from jamming is to trade it in.

Default Ammo?

What ammo are u using, have you tried different ammunition? Maybe a heavier load would help.
