XDm reliability
 
I love my XDm Compact. I haven't shot it as much as I should. I would like some opinions on the striker retaining roll pins breaking. Is it a concern? Should I replace it with the stronger one from Powder River? Anyone experience there's breaking?

I have about 200 rds thru mine w/no problems so far.

I had issues with mine, but I'll attribute it to dry firing without snap caps. Mine didn't break, but it would work its way out during shooting. I just pushed it back in every few hundred rounds. I emailed SA and they sent me a new one free of charge. The new one is nice and tight after about 900 rounds, however I will not be dry firing without snap caps.

3000 rounds no one issue

I appreciate the responses here...I just thought we had more XD owners to gain more insight.

Have not had any problems with mine. But I only have about 110 rounds through it.

I guess I can't add any meaningful info, but I'll tell you this; I HATE striker fired pistols, but decided I might look into them for ease of discrete CC. I've researched about all of them, and I didn't find too many instances of the problem you mention. It happens, but it happens less than other brands experienced with their individual problems. After looking at them all I found that for the money (or even if they were $200 more) the SA XD is a great, reliable, trustworthy piece. I do like the M&P, but still put an XD on layaway

Check the XD forum, this has been discussed in there.

I've got a 4.5" XDm 9mm...another 50 rounds through it today, 280 total so far, and quite a bit of dry firing with not even a hint of a problem at any time.

Good advice. Ok, nobody has experienced the retaining roll pins breaking that responded....however, does anyone find it a concern? Especially if you intend to use you XD (XDm) as a defense or CCW weapon. Hate to have it break at the wrong time.

I use my XD for cc. Springfield has always bin a very good quality gun. I don't have any concern of pins breaking. But it could happen. If I was you I would go ahead and buy the stronger pins tho. I would think that you starting this thread means it is something you are worried about. Just give your self pice of mind and upgrade them so you don't have to worry about it. I might do the same.
