Re: new XDsc 40..
I bought my XD40 5 years ago and still love it. Mine is the 4" service model and I carry it every day. I haven't invested in a good holster yet though. I have an inexpensive Blackhawk inside the waistband holster that works well enough for my daily routine.
It has been so long since the gun was new I forget if it felt that tight or not. I've fired thousands of rounds through it since then. The only problem that I had was a feed issue after cleaning the gun. The feed ramp on the barrel had the melonite finish on it and the bullets would actually encounter enough friction across the texture to jam. After firing several rounds the bullets would leave a trail of copper up the feed ramp and the problem would go away. The cleaner I used would strip away the copper residue everytime I cleaned it so the next time at the range I would have issues until I ran through a couple of magazines of ammo. Unhappy with this problem, I used my dremel tool to remove the finish from the feed ramp and then polished it as slick as possible. After that slight modification I have never had a malfunction of any sort. I attached a couple pics of the polished feed ramp below. They aren't the best quality, but you get the idea.
