I got some Hornaday +P ammo in a trade and fired a mag w every other round +P just cause it didn't cost me anything, it did well but since I got my XDs back I haven't had a malfunction free range trip. Really sux cause I love that little hand cannon.

I was worried about that. That's why I never sent mine in. Me and my wife are the only ones who shoot it so I don't see a problem since we are both experienced

I need to call Springfield but I have a feeling they'll blame it on me for polishing the barrel lug and extractor. I regret sending it in

Interesting.

I have an early XDs45 that's run like a top. Didn't send it back because I have no complaints or issues to speak of. I guess I figured if it ain't broke, why 'fix' a successful gun? I like carrying it and have encountered zero problems, so...

I can honestly say I never had any issues before sending mine in for the recall... or any noticeable difference after... other then getting a free mag..

I would not use +p in my auto's, but I believe they function good in large revolvers, but thats me.

This is the reason for the recall and it is a flaw, so technically it is "broke" if you own one of the ones within the serial numbers recalled and whether you have had a problem or not it's your choice on returning it.

Yes I own one and sent it in for repair and pretty much agree with Eagle on the no + p in this weapon.

I did send some +p down range in my XDs 45. Every shot physically hurt my hand. Those were ranger xt's and they hurt like hell compared to standard loads. Remember there is no standard for +p so 1 brands may be no better than regular factory loads.
