XDM 5.25 slide issue

When inserting a new mag from slide lock, occasionally my slide will fall. While not a problem in competition, does worry me little during practice or range fun. Do see some slight wear below feed ramp as well. Any advice appreciated.

“Occasionally “ during competition is not a good thing. You either want the slide to auto forward 100% of the time or not at all. When you get used to it falling in matches and then it doesn’t it sucks.

I agree, but with my "occasionally" gun I just run it as if the slide was never going to go forward. If I was shooting a slide lock sport maybe it would be a thing worth fixing though.

Does this happen with all of your mags, or just one in particular. If it is one or two I would suspect the mag spring is weak.

 

I have shot XDms for years. I did have a nasty problem with a case head separation issue, which turned out to be a combination of PMC brass, 180 grain leas cast, and Unique powder. It would blow the head off the brass 50% of the time, powder load was well below max. Never got the answer as to why. Use a.40 for 3 gun and have an OSP for back up to my CZ.
