Haven't had a single issue with my XDS. Carry it for backup at work and off duty when in light clothing where I can't hide a bigger weapon.

My .45 was 100% trouble free(for me, my girlfriend had a couple stovepipes) had probably 800+ rds tru her, then sent it off for the recall and I had stovepipes w two of the three mags I was shooting w. I had to take it out of rotation til I can fire a few hundred rds w no failures.

Made a second and third trip to the range, still either stove pipes or fails to feed, I'm guessing the recoil springs are wore???

We rented one at a new range for my wife to try, had 2 hang fires. I believe that it was due to the bad reloads they required us to use, or the gun was not maintained at all, typical rented range guns. But we are still going to buy one.

I've had a mixed bag of problems with mine. When using 7rd mags it routinely fails to feed, as the magazines get more broken in this problem seems to get better. I also get about 5 light strikes per 100 Ed's of ammo and have had some failure to eject problems (most likely due to bad reloads). I'm currently trying to contact Springfield to see what the issue is. I'm mostly shooting Remington UMC, Speer Lawman and reloads with some of the higher powered reloads being the most reliable.

Interesting question!!

Several years ago, I bought a new one (the "Tactical" one with the longer barrel) On my first range trip, I had three misfires due to light FP strikes; I could barely see a mark on the primer. I had it shipped back to Springfield with a clearly-written letter and I included some of the cases with the light strikes (I pulled the bullets & dumped the powder).

Springfield shipped the "repaired" gun back to me. The repair invoice said "Reamed Chamber." They did a horrible job; it was scratched up as if some moron just took a file & twisted it around a few times. And, it still misfired. I had them replace the barrel & NEVER bought another Springfield product since & never will.

Only trouble I can think of is a stiff mag catch and the 9 round mag feels awkward in my hand. The 8 rounder feels great though...

My biggest problem with both of mine is the mag release is still. Tried running one less in the mag, makes no difference. Only time it's easy to release is when the slide is locked back or mag is empty.

Skrb... I find that pressing up on the mag when hitting the mag release helps significantly. I'm training myself to kind of smack the mag while reloading...

I do press on it to make it easier. Just disappointed that you have to do that.

Two XD's, 4" And a 5" Tactical. Both are probably 10 years old now. Did some trigger work to smooth and lighten the trigger pull. The Tactical has over 10,000 rounds and the 4" Service XD has about half that. Both perform well, no troubles. I carry the 4" often.
