So I took it home and cleaned it on my own. The only thing that seems different now is that the magazine seems to not fit into place as easy nor popping it of the frame is as easy as before. Is it because I may not have used enough oil? Any ideas?
A fully loaded mag? XDs and I believe XDms are known for stiff mag springs that make loading and unloading a full mag a tad difficult, my XD 40 was a real bear to load at first. Try it with 1 round below capacity until it loosens up a bit or push up on the bottom of the mag before depressing the mag release.
