Hey guys I was looking to buy an XDs at my LGS for summer carry but then I searched YouTube for "xds problems" and came across a lot of videos showing problems with light primer strikes, mag release problems, etc. hoping this was just a first run type of problem and have since been corrected but I'm sure you guys know more about this than I do. Could you guys shed some light on this so I can make a good decision? Any experiences and reviews of the XDs are more than welcome. Thank you very much guys!

Just to clarify I'm talking about the XDs 3.3 45cal

Just picked up a XDM 45 5.25 and shot 100 rounds thru it Friday night at the range (reloads). No issues at all.

I have put several hundred rounds of the white box and law man down range, and about 250 rounds of what is my carry ammo (pdx1) without an issue.

Whatever you choose as your carry ammo even though a bit pricey to do so put at least 200 rounds through it to be sure the gun "likes" it. I know pricey but how much is your, or your families life worth. I do this with all my pistols.

Thanks for the info! I actually use PDX1 as my carry ammo also in my glock 30sf so it's good to know it feeds well in the XD-S. I saw that the XD-S is coming out in 9mm but I'm more of a ,45 guy. Just looking for something slimmer to carry during summer. The G30 gets a bit bulky during that time if the year in lighter clothing so the XD-S fits the bill

No problem at all. If you do end up getting it also look into the pinky extension that Pearce makes for the mag. Well worth the $10 or $15 it cost
