View Full Version : Xd strip issue

09-12-2012, 7:04 PM
I have a ported xd40 and and the guide rod gets stuck in the slide when i do a field strip to clean. Does anybody else have this issue? I only have ~1500 rounds through her...

I've never figured out how people manage to do this....

But back to the point, how old is the gun. Springfield/HS changed the design of the barrel lug so help alleviate this "issue".

Bought the gun new in june 2010

Finally have a V1040 as well :D
Never got that stuck issue, yet LoL :p

Who knows, your barrel or rod guide might be out of spec.
I would ask Springfield to take a look if it happens pretty often for you.

I'm having the same problem. My xd no more than 5k through it. I have to compress the spring, pull the barrel out, then the spring will come out. Very annoying and not easy. I guess I'll call Springfield.

I have about 10k rounds down barrel, still no issues. But this worries me now
