    U need to clean the extractor area - and, also see if it's one particular magazine that it occurs on. Also, try a new recoil spring. After that, then contact springfield. All that is cheaper than paying the $50 shipping it would cost to send them the gun back for warranty work.

    what Shipwreck said. jus FYI... if ya do have to deal with Springer Repairs... they aren't bad. I had to send a Micro 1911 back, they R&R W/ no sweat, no grief in 3 weeks time.

    I've heard of others that have had similar problems and what was found to be common among these folks was the ammo they were using. Seems like semi-wad cutters (SMC) are very problematic for some of the XD's, regardless of who manufactured the ammo.

    The XD simply wasn't designed to use SWC ammo.

    I got the same problem with 2 of the 4 mags i have for my XD 45 tac. It does it some times and others it doesnt i did notice that the ejector was really tight which i thought be odd but this is my first pistol so i took it to a friend whos dad does gun work for the police department and he said it was strange how tight if thats the correct term the ejector was so while he installs some tfo sights on it he'll look into seeing if he can do anything with the ejector thing

    Isn't that referred to as a "smokestack?"


    Never heard of one.
