I bought the XDM 5.25 for IDPA. I already had the Glock 34. I shot the XDM and traded it off the next weekend. Cool looks, awesome packaging, but alas, I perform better with the Glock. I can say that The Tactical Defense Institute in Ohio told a buddy of mine that students that show up with an XD often have it break before the 3 days are up. Seems to be a trend.

I work at an in door range here in GA and in three years have never seen anyone have any issue with an XD or XDm. We have a range gun in each style and they have fired thousands of rounds over the years without any problems. And I've got over 2000 rounds through mine with no issues. So I have no idea who would report multiple failures honestly.

Maybe they're selling because they're finally ready for Glock.

I'm seeing all the plastic guns in my area going up on the block. The used market is so flooded, you damn near can't find anything BUT the plastic guns. Namely GLOCK. Not NEARLY as many XD's, but enough to make you wonder.

Probably nothing more than supply chain rebound. Manufacturers are steadily catching up with demand and panic buyers are trying to unload before their investment turns upside down. Glocks, XD's, and most other weapons were overpriced when demand was so high. Now the manufacturers and panic buyers will have to relax their prices in order to unload inventory. Eventually, we will get back to normal.

Ma has an XD subcompact in 9, I have a G27 (40 S&W). The XD was stiffer when new, but is fine now and the Glock was a Glock, I will never have the attachment for the plastic guns that I have for my 1911s or High Power but why anyone would sell the XDs is a mystery to me. Everyone who has shot it likes it and there have been zero issues with QC or function.
