Springfield XDs Recall Issued

I know a lot of us have these. Searched, hope it isn't a repost.


Springfield server seems to be down/busy, but here's the text of the release.
LINK /


quote:


Springfield Armory® is initiating this voluntary safety recall to upgrade 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm and 3.3 XD-S™ .45ACP pistols with new components, which eliminate the possibility of a potentially dangerous condition. We want to emphasize that no injuries have been reported to date.

Springfield has determined that under exceptionally rare circumstances, some 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm and .45ACP caliber pistols could experience an unintended discharge during the loading process when the slide is released, or could experience a double-fire when the trigger is pulled once. The chance of these conditions existing is exceptionally rare, but if they happen, serious injury or death could occur.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?

STOP USING YOUR 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm or .45ACP PISTOL AND CAREFULLY UNLOAD IT!

To begin the upgrade process and for fastest response, click on this Get Started link. On that page enter your serial number and click Next. If your pistol is subject to this recall, you will need to provide your name, address, phone number, and email address. The serial number is located on the frame beneath the dust cover (accessory rail). If you prefer, you may initiate the upgrade process by calling 800-680-6866. If you no longer own the 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm or .45ACP pistol, please advise Springfield of the current owner.

XD-S SerialNumber

What pistols are involved?

This Safety Recall applies only to:
Springfield 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm pistols – serial numbers between XS900000 and XS938700
Springfield 3.3 XD-S™ .45ACP pistols – serial numbers between XS500000 and XS686300.

This Safety Recall does not apply to any XD® or XD(M)® pistols.

What will Springfield do?

Springfield will send you a return authorization and mailing label, allowing you to return your 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm or .45ACP pistol to Springfield at no cost to you. Springfield will upgrade your 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm or .45ACP pistol with the new components, and return it to you. Springfield will provide tracking numbers so you can monitor the receipt and return of your upgrades.

Questions?

Visit [url]www.springfield-armory.com[/url] for further information about this safety recall. You can reach the Springfield Armory Call Center at 800-680-6866. Springfield apologizes for this inconvenience, but your safety is our paramount concern.

We greatly appreciate your loyalty to Springfield products.

Taurus is offering $10 trade-in on any XD when purchasing a Judge.

Better jump on this deal before they're all gone.

I submitted mine as well. I got a shipping label emailed to me. So do I just box it up slap the label on it and bring it to FedEx? I've never mailed a gun before. It sounds like that's all you have to do, and they are going to deliver it to my door with a signature?

Damn... Gotta send mine back too.

Wonder if this has to do with that guy on the xd forum saying his gun shot off the whole mag after he put his mag in and put one in the chamber?

Full Auto?

Yep. When my firing pin in my Ruger LC9 broke, they sent it to my house direct.

re: Springfield XDs Recall Issued
So I guess dropping a round in the barrel and then releasing the slide would be a bad idea?

Depressing the trigger of a gun is dangerous? Who knew?
