I'd say yes. My XD had run perfectly for over 5 yrs until that snowy trip up the mountain. I think it had finally accumulated enought copper shavings to impede the firing pin because it was failing to discharge at least 1 rnd per mag. Just happy it occured durring practice and gratefull Robo had the right answer for me.

Was this difficult to do? Any hints or tips? I would like to attempt this, but I have visions of me fumbling around with it, and.....SPROINGGGGG!.....parts flying all over my basement

Glad to hear it worked out. Maybe I should take my XD apart just in case. I've got over 2000 rds thru it and while it doesn't see regular duty anymore if I reach for it, it needs to work. I haven't had a single problem so far but a preventative cleaning couldn't hurt.

Likewise with my XD, although I don't have 2,000 rounds through it yet.

It was pretty easy, just depress the plastic ring in the middle of the rear plate. This ring is where the "cocked indicator" protrudes. Anyway, just press it in far enough to let the plate slide down and off the slide. That ring is actually like a plunger. With the plate removed you can pull out the plunger and spring, shoot it out w/Action Blaster, and re-assemble.

I did have 1 "SPOOOOOING" but got lucky as the plunger landed on my foot.

Now that I KNOW, I strongly recommend this for ALL striker guns as regular maintenance.

TACK

It's something that anyone with a striker fired weapon should do. I've had several over the years and you wont believe the crap that comes out sometimes. I did it to mine about every thousand rounds. I heard so many "that never happened to me" people come ask how to do it ..Just because they where curious (LOL!). You have to be careful sometimes so as not to have a BOING issue but it's really easy to do. And it can save a headache when you least expect it.

Tack, thanks for the tips. My XD is pretty much brand new, but I am definitely going to keep this in mind after it has seen some use.
