"I have two of the XR45's and after replacing the mag springs I had very good luck with them as far as reliability. Live round ejection has not been a problem for me. I know Mark says that limp wristing cannot cause it, but the only…"
"After owning over 200 pistols and revolvers and not having this kind of trouble, I just do not expect it.
I shoot Wildey's, Auto Mags, LAR Grizzly's, Raging Bulls, and 500 S&W. All these guns have large grips. I bought the XR45…"
"Mark is a good guy and knows what is going on. LRE just were not a problem for me.
As a side note, Mark also told me that the gun beating on my thumb joint is not a problem with the gun, it is a hand problem. Tell that to all the guys on…"
You have more experience than I on the subject but all I know is what has happened to me.
No LRE's with my 9mm Boberg's.
The 5 or 6 LRE's that happened with my 45's out of 800 to 1000 rounds occurred when I am fairly certain…"
"The reason for the hump if I remember right was Arne wanted it there to absorb recoil, I think he called it the trampoline affect.

"The pull length of the trigger is just too long for even a person with average sized hands in my opinion. All the major gun companies are recognizing this with replacement backstraps and the government and government agencies are…"
"The XR9s that I have shot the most is #360 and has had no updates and I have had no troubles with it.
The numbers you have are fairly late in the series and I would not worry about them. I doubt that there were many if any updates past your…"
"I have had several live round ejections with my XR45 but never with my XR9. The chamber was always empty when this happened.
I believe that my problem was caused by limp wristing the pistol. I say this as all my LRE occurred well into…"
Glad to help out if I can. I got my XR45 about a month ago, but at this point I've only been able to put about 50 rounds through it. I'm not exactly a regular shooter, and a bunch of other things have tied up time.
That said, I'm happy to share what observations I have.
