I have noticed pmcs use a harder primer and I have some ftf with those rounds. WWB never a issue even light primer strikes still go bang

Maybe that's the secret - clean sparingly...

Runs as reliably as my HKs but until the 500 rd mark - couldn't shoot w them accuracy wise. Just my .02
I couldn't ever leave my weapons dirty, I'm the anal retentive that field strips my XDs at the range and clean it and a light coat of oil while its still warm. I'm inclined ta say it's probably either a spring(return) or a light grip.

Had the same issue with mine called Springfield they said clean and do NOT oil the striker channel at all when I pulled it all apart "I don't know what part it is called it's plastic on the left side of striker channel and let's the firing pin move" it was so gunked up from me oiling it that I would get light strikes every time no fires every time after I stripped it down to nothing I haven't had a problem again, by the way if you SA they will send you free roll pins if you are going to strip it all the way down they said it was a common issue. But it is almost always from over oiling.

I was the exact same way until I joined the Army. Years of scrubbing the blue off of weapons had a negative effect on me. Even the smell of CLP or Carb cleaner brings back memories of cleaning late into the night.

I actually enjoy it for that very reason, I guess its the same clouded memory that says "basic wasn't that bad" even if it was Ft Knox in the coldest part of winter lol
