Look forward to hearing the solution. Seems a lot of people want the sigma and a lot who have them aren't happy.

My Sigma 9mm had been 100% reliable after 600 rounds so far. Yours must have a defect somewhere so let S&W fix it.

Also try different ammo though.

Are you by chance shooting any steel case ammo?

Does steel case ammo make a difference. Is it better to shoot brass.
Sometimes, depending on the amount you shoot and the firearm, extractors can get beat up or break from steel ammo…. steel on steel violence. Usually a quality hardened steel extractor is the fix and a lot of firearms come that way but some don’t so if I shot a lot of steel case and was breaking extractors I would get a good extractor or quit shooting steel case.

I wouldn’t know for a fact but if I had to bet I would bet the XD is good to go. Aren’t they an Eastern Block made gun ?
Steel case is used heavily in Eastern Europe and Russia. I think most reputable guns from the 90’s up to present should be fine and the XD is a quality pistol so I wouldn’t worry.
I once had to replace one on a Mini 14 that was made in the 70’s and that was after a few 1000

Well even if the steel casing is possibly ok. I'll burn up this box and go to brass. The brass looks better anyway. Lol.

Well I never shoot steal. I mostly shoot fed brass from walmart. I cleaned the gun about an hr before I went to shoot. But I keep her clean.
