They are decent, I've got a couple buds that have the XD's and I've shot them before,, there not bad at all,,but again, I don't care for plastic guns,,,,still!!!! One had the issue the early ones did, the other was 100% and they did shot OK
Not liking polymer guns I bought a Bersa ultra compact 45 Pro model 7+1 instead, for my carry, there basically a Sig copy. I put some pics up here quite a while back after polishing up the action ect., maybe you saw it. I love it and it's more accurate than the XD's too as well as being less expensive,,,,mags,,,,not so much, 45- 47 a pop,,ouch! If you can find them now.
Matter of fact,, I liked it so much I went out and got a matching ultra compact one in 9mm, 13+1, both great shooters with that polygonal rifling. They were 389, for the 9,,,410ish for the 45, each with 2 mags.
Those are a good option for those of us that don't like plastic guns ,want a gun that is 100% reliable ,don't cost an arm and a leg and accurate. I haven't seen any of the 45's or 9mm lately though, just 380's. All the shop owners say there real popular and they can't keep them on the shelf very long. Heard no bad reports about them either, just mine, about somewhat weak bluing. But then again,,,I have mine in a holster when I'm out jostling about on the 4 wheeler,,,a bunch,, that may cause more too. After about a year or so of this, I'm just starting to see wear at the end of the slide but not to badly. But it's a working gun, no biggie.
For a poly framed gun I did like them better than most others of it's type I've handled before. I probably shoot it better than most too. I seem to have an issue with polymer frame guns,,I don't seem to be as consistent with them for some reason, must be trying to overcome 50 years worth muscle memory with steel guns,,,all I can figure. But I'm defiantly less accurate with poly framed guns.
