Hello everyone.

I recently purchased the xr45. I took it to the range for the first time the other day. I had a problem while I was there.

First I have purchased several different manufacturers of ammo from the list I read on here for compatible ammo. I figured I would try several of them to see which works best.

The problem I had was when a round was fired and the brass would get ejected, it would also eject the next round it is supposed to feed into the chamber. So I would have to load another round into the chamber to fire again. After a couple rounds it would do it again.

It did this with all the different ammo I was using. If it was only one brand I would have just stopped using that brand. Since it was with at least four different ones I figured stop wasting ammo and look for some advice.

Thanks for your input.

I have this happen also,  but infrequently.  In my case, I am 90% sure that the cause is limp wristing the pistol.  I concluded this as it only happened to me at the end of some long shooting sessions and I was getting tired or when I was doing some accuracy work and my grip was more relaxed.  Once this happened and I was more conscious about holding a firm grip, it did not happen again.  

I talked to Mark about this and they have had guns returned for this problem and it does not happen for them at their test range.

The grip on the XR45 is too large for my hand and I find that much more of the grip is coming from my 'off hand' than on other guns.  Because of this, I have to grip the pistol different than I would normally.

I hope this helps.  Good luck.

Thanks Bob. Interesting potential solution to that problem. I'll have to try it as well.

Bob, join the club. There are quite a few of us who have issues with the grip size/trigger reach issues causing us to have to rotate the 45 too far clockwise in our hand in order to get enough finger on the trigger. We are hoping that the factory or some aftermarket provider designs some minimum size grips with less curve in the "backstrap" area, to solve this problem.

I have solved the problem by putting my XR45's in the safe and going back to the XDs45.  No recoil problems and I can shoot it accurately and fast with good accuracy.  That is something I cannot do with the Boberg, sorry to say.
