Springfield XDM 9mm stovepipe problems?

Have the above gun and read where some people have feed or stove pipe ejection problems with this gun That person said they returned it to Springfield Armory for repair but resulted in no improvement.

If I took my XDM to a reputable gunsmith for "ramping" or other work, would this more than likely correct future like problems.

I want to insure reliability BEFORE any jams or ejection problems occur since I carry this gun [licensed] concealed.



Recently bought an "XDM - ROTO-HOLSTERâ„¢ PADDLE" for this gun.
Supposedly works for left or right side hip carry and 'Small of back' [S.O.B.] carry.
Works well with left or right hip carry but the curvature of the padded plastic paddle does not allow for comfortable s.o.b. carry.

Why try to fix a problem that you are not sure exists?

Run a few hundred rounds of practice ammo through it and a few boxes of what you plan on carrying. That will cost about the same as a trip to the gunsmith. If you don't have any stovepipes you've saved a trip to the gunsmith and you've also gotten a good amount of practice.

stovepipes with XDMs are very rare, a likely cause of that problem is someone loading their own ammunition and loading to pressures well beyond accepted maximums causing the slide to cycle too fast to allow the spent casings to clear, I own an XDM9 and I have fired several XD and XDMs of different sizes and calibers and have never had a failure.
ignore my complete lack of capitalization. I still have no problem correcting your grammar.

Before blaming the gun try a variety of ammo. Most likely a ammo problem rather than a gun problem

You are probably limp wristing the gun. First time I shot an xd9 I had non stop stovepipes from not gripping it properly. Once I looked it up, it never happened again.
