It would fail to eject 2-3 rounds out of every 100 or so fired. I bought it "used" but in unfired condition. When I factored in the price of shipping, and possible repairs (not original owner, SA's warranty is only for orig owner), I decided to trade it in on a Glock 17, and I couldn't be happier.

I will say that when shooting IDPA and USPSA, I do see more XD malfunctions than Glock, but the 1911 rules the roost with the most malfunctions.
