"Limp Wristing" is poor terminology. Since mostly men shoot guns, it refers to them and thus they take it as a direct reflection of their manhood.

Hell, who of us wouldn't get offended if it was the first time you heard it and it was directed at you?

Just call it what it is, - " your wrist is not properly locked".

If your wrist was really limp, the gun would either hit you in the head or go flying from your hands.

If you are reloading make sure the rounds are not too long or short. Before you send it in take it apart and clean it well. Inspect your feed ramp. Make sure there are no chips or machine marks. I had a Browning HP 9mm that would jam every now and then. The ramp had lateral machine marks on the ramp. With some fine sandpaper and jewlers rouge the ramp is like a mirror and i've shot thousands of rounds through it without a fault.
Just some things to check...

Thanks for all the replies. I just received the xds back from Springfield today. The gunsmith note says that they had fired 50 rounds through the gun and found no problems. I took the pistol out today and fired 350 rounds through it with zero problems. I held the gun every way I could without killing myself. I even put it in my palm then pulled the trigger with just my finger. No jams.I can't believe I just decided not to limp wrist anymore. Wierd they found no problems and now I can't get this thing to jam if my life depended on it. They must of fixed something, which is awesome because now I can start having some good old fun.

Thanks for the idea. Before I sent it in I took some mothers chrome polish and my dremel and went to town for about 20 minutes. I could almost see a reflection. Still I had no positive results. I do not reload at this moment. I am actually reading some books about reloading right now and should dip my feet in it right after the holidays. Thanks for the input.

By not having positive results do you mean you tried shooting it again after you polished it?

Obviously something changed. The good news is that Springfield took the gun back and now it works.

I bought a Kimber CDP Pro in 2008. It couldn't get through a single magazine without jamming, often a 3-point jam which is hard to clear. Kimber's "customer service" told me that I needed to fire 500 rounds through the gun to "break it in" and I was probably limp wristing it anyway. That B.S. made me so mad that I studied up on 1911 jams, finally figured out that the extractor was the problem, replaced it and tuned the new extractor. Voila - my wrist wasn't limp anymore!

However, limp wristing is real. I hadn't practiced with my KelTec PF-9 for over 6 months. Firing with one hand, I got occasional jams until I really concentrated on a very firm grip. Little semi-auto pistols don't always work right. They are more sensitive to ammo changes, recoil springs degrading, etc. than their bigger cousins.

I don't know about other platforms, but you can royally screw up a 1911 by "polishing" the feed ramp if you over do it. When I read the words "Dremel" and "feed ramp" in the same sentence I get hives.

Yes I tried shooting it again after I polished it and I believe that's when I used my new 7 round mags right out of the box and had the same problems.

The OP never explained exactly what was happening, or did I miss that?

I am assuming it is jamming in some way? What way? Is the pistol in question an XD45? If so and it is jamming with the live round jammed in a nose down position in the mag or against the feed ramp, the problem is NOT limp wristing.

Please clarify what exactly is happening.

Both of my Kimbers had extractors that were not properly tensioned, and they jammed. Tensioned the extractors and the feed empty cases.

first of all:




And limp wristing does happen, don't believe it , go buy a desert eagle .50 caliber...

after many rounds you might start limp wristing unless your a carpenter or the like.


To the OP: glad your gun works, I bet they fixed it , and said nothing was wrong because they know if they say something like "it had a faulty widget, and a worn out doodad" then you'd go poo poo all over the internet saying how awfull SAI widgets and doodads are made.

Thanks from philip26p
