Great choices. I have the same two pistols.
I never experienced a light strike with my XDs. They do like a lot of lube, at least while being broken in.
If you want, it's pretty easy to remove the magazine disconnect in the SR... Pull the striker and it drops right out. That was the only thing I didn't like about the SR - problem solved. Glad you figured out the mag drop problem. Mine never had that issue. It's a very accurate pistol.
