ATTENTION

3.3 XD-S™ SAFETY RECALL

Issued August 28, 2013
Technical Background Get Started Contact Us Springfield-Armory.com
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 the Get Started link at the top of the page. 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 Serial Number

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 Springfield Armory. com 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.

Great. Mine is in the 586000 range and I've been carrying it every day. And the website is down for "maintenance".

Thanks for the heads-up, Dave.

From what I have read- calling is more effective than the website and people have been told it is an issue with the grip safety, it effects ALL XDS models and turn around time is being estimated at a month by Springfield.

Mine is in th eearly part of the 45ACP serials...

I've already swapped out the grip safety some time back... With an aftermarket component from...
These guys... http://powderriverprecision.com/

Along with...
    The extended mag release
    Trigger pull spring kit
    And Truglo TRITIUM FIBER OPTIC NIGHT SIGHTS
I'm going to give 'em a call and discuss this.
Maybe I can just get'em to send me the part.
Not that I'll install it... But it'll be there in case I ever sell it.

On guns made before 7-22-11 ( basically a few weeks after release) and it is a new designed piece rather than a defective part causing errors or problems being replaced.

It's not a real recall, but you can say it is for your argument.

I sent my XDS back last week because the pistol would not always completely close when you would try to chamber the first round. I always had to look and make sure the chamber closed all the way each time I loaded the first round. If it did, it was good to go and never a problem. But when it would not go into battery, it was useless. I called Springfield and they sent me a mailing sticker and they have it now. Anyone else had this problem? I think the problem causing the recall was because of the slide not functioning properly, is that correct? Thanks.

Thanks a lot Dave, I had no idea. My .45 is in the 528*** range, so I guess it's going back. It's been my daily carry piece for months now, and I'll miss it.



Hey guys, I just got on the SA website, clicked on the recall link and filled out the form to return the gun. I just got a confirmation email from FedEx for the mailing label. They have apparently fixed the issues with the website.

Condition 2 is the most dangerous condition for a 1911. In that condition, it can fire if dropped. I refer to those without the Colt Series 80 passive firing pin safety.

Condition 1 is the way to go. If that makes you nervous, carry chamber empty or get a Glock.

The aftermarket Mec-Gar mags have a reputation of causing this failure. SA also rev'd the design to address this failure.

Shipping mine back this morning. I'll use my XD-9 for carry in the meantime.

I'm going to make this a "Sticky" for a week or so as it's important for the safety of all XDS owners.

Thanks again, Dave.

Dropped mine off at the FedEx store today. Maybe being early will get it back early, hopefully. I felt woefully undergunned today carrying my Kel Tec PF9.

Here is what they just sent me, I will be posting it in the news and Announcements section as well... (We will be running some Charity auctions for Springfield's in a few weeks and if I'm not mistaken... There is currently a Sweepstakes still running on the auction side....

Springfield Armory® Announces Voluntary Safety Recall of 3.3 XD-S™ Pistol

GENESEO, Illinois (August 29, 2013) — Springfield Armory® launched a 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.

Owners of XD-S™ 3.3 9mm and .45ACP pistols are instructed to stop using their pistol and carefully unload it; then visit www.springfieldrecall.com and follow the instructions to begin the upgrade process. Springfield will cover the cost of the shipping and upgrades.

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.

The company announced 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. Springfield said the chance of these conditions existing is exceptionally rare, but if they happen, serious injury or death could occur.

“Springfield apologizes for this inconvenience,” said Dennis Reese, co-chairman of Springfield, headquartered in Geneseo, Illinois. “Our customers’ safety is our paramount concern; we want to emphasize that no injuries have been reported to date.”

Springfield is in the process of notifying customers, distributors and dealers.

Dang!! I better go check my number and see if I fit into that. I love mine and carry it quite a bit. IT has always went bang. I put somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,000 rounds or so through it.

Thanks very much for the heads-up Dave!

I e-mailed Springfield this morning, requesting an update on my XDS-45. It looks like a 3-month wait. Here's their reply:

Dear Springfield Customer,

Your pistol has been received.

We greatly appreciate the tremendous response to the 3.3 XD-S™ Recall Upgrade. We have received a very large number of pistols in a very short time, and upgrades will be completed on a “first come / first served” basis.

The upgrade repair is in the final stage of testing, and should be determined soon. The XD-S™ pistols already received at Springfield will be upgraded and returned as soon as possible, beginning within the next few weeks.

Given the volume of XD-S™ pistols now on hand, we expect it will take eight to ten weeks to upgrade and return the current inventory to their owners. Pistols currently being returned to Springfield for the upgrade, please allow approximately ten to twelve weeks turnaround time.

We are doing our best to increase the speed of the upgrade while maintaining a high level of safety and quality. As the upgrade process progresses, we are hopeful that the return time will become shorter.

We know it is inconvenient for you to be without your pistol, and we sincerely apologize. We assure you that we are working as fast as we can, and we know you will be very pleased with your upgraded 3.3

XD-S™. Thank you for your patience and loyalty. And remember; do not use your 3.3 XD-S™ until the upgrade has been performed.

Once your pistol has been upgraded and is shipping back to you, an e-mail confirmation and tracking information will be sent to you at the e-mail address you provided.

If you still have further questions please call 800-680-6866 or send your request again to recall@springfield-armory.com

We appreciate your patience and support!

Sincerely,


Team Springfield

-"SPIDER"

Wow.....that is highly disappointing. I was expecting nowhere near that amount of time. I REALLY like my XDs too. I had a bad feeling about this when I was in Gander Mountain the other day. The guy working the gun department told another customer they just sent in a handful of XDs's in for the recall work. I bet you they are getting done ahead of ours.....after all that's money in the bank for them because they aren't sold yet.....ours are.

I wish I would have known this before. I wouldn't have sent it in yet.

Well, the fix has not even been certified yet, so until all the testing is complete they cannot even begin to start repairing them.

Glad I have not returned my XDS yet, I'll send in whenever they know how to fix it and the turn around time is within reason.

Yep... Report LINK

I have yet to send in my XDs... I refuse to, until I know what they're going to do.
I doubt seriously that mine is actually affected... But, in the astronomically grim case it could...
I've shelved it as of the initial notification... But dammit... They need to resolve this PRONTO!

I just sent them an email to let them know that well I appreciate their efforts to recall and fix the guns, I am very irritated with the way in which they have handled it. Doubt it will do any good, but I felt it needed to be done. I think that is a pretty poor way to handle things.

With the way it has been handled so far with no end in sight they should at least send some extra mags with it when the gun returns. They are working on losing customers with the long wait and no progress.

If they told me that at least I would know there was some progress on it. As is I have a $550.00 pistol sitting at the factory for an indefinite amount of time. It would help if they would at least have an estimate of when they will start returning them to owners. Would like my new carry gun back so I could carry it!

I just got another "we're still working on it" e-mail.

I wouldn't be surprised to learn that they sent the whole batch back to Croatia for repair.

We will update this site again on Friday, October 11 and fully expect that we will have more great news to share.We are making final arrangements for upgrading the pistols that our customers returned to us.

In the meantime, please accept our heartfelt thanks for your patience, loyalty and support of Springfield Armory®. We remain fully committed to resolving this recall as quickly as possible and we are confident that you will be extremely pleased with your upgraded 3.3 XD-S™.

I just received the same email Spider.

At this point, it really doesn't matter to me anymore(besides me getting my pistol back eventually). I love my XDs and will not get rid of it, but I will not be buying another product from that company again. They have lost my business and ticked me off with the way they handled this whole thing.

I like that, but my email did not say this and the web site doesn't show this when I clicked the link and was directed to their update. Wonder why they don't show that now.

Maybe they're only sending them to the people who sent their guns in first and had to wait the longest.

I probably won't be getting one. I exchanged a couple emails with them and the last one I sent, I told them to shove it where the sun don't shine for the way they handled things.

UPDATE 10/18/13:

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

We are pleased to announce that the process of upgrading XD-S™ pistols has begun, and we will start shipping TODAY on a first-received/first-upgraded basis.

In our last update, we reported that upgraded pistols would start shipping sometime next week. But our team has been working around the clock and we are thrilled to start shipping today.

We have greatly increased our staff to get upgraded pistols back to customers quickly, and we are committed to achieving the fastest turnaround times possible. For now, we are unable to provide specific return shipping date ranges, but we do expect to share more information next Friday after we've had a full week to gauge how efficiently we will be able to complete this process.

When upgrades are finished on individual firearms, customers will receive a shipping notice and tracking information at the e-mail address they provided for the XD-S™ recall. And as a token of our appreciation for our customers' patience and support, we will also be enclosing an XD-S™ extended magazine with X-tension sleeve with each pistol we return.

As we reported last week, our engineers have redesigned the grip safety and created more positive engagement between the sear and striker on the upgraded XD-S™ pistols. Our solution delivers the advantages of a smoother and more consistent trigger feel with just a slightly increased trigger pull. We chose this option based on the two most important attributes to self-defense firearm owners - safety and reliability - and we are confident that our customers will be extremely pleased with their upgraded pistols.

We want to again express our deep gratitude to all of our valued customers for their loyalty to Springfield Armory®.

Please click the FAQ link in the red bar on top of this page to view our updated FAQ.


This Springfield XD-S™ Recall Update will be updated every Friday through the recall process. Please check back for updates.

As a reminder, do not use your 3.3 XD-S™ until the upgrade has been performed.

The update-

Shipping is underway and customers are telling us they are very pleased with their upgraded XD-S™ pistols.

In our last update, we announced that upgraded pistols would start being shipped back to their owners on Friday, October 18th. Our process of upgrading pistols - in the order that they were received - started as planned and we are very pleased with the positive feedback we are getting from customers regarding the upgrades.

As you know, we have greatly increased our staff to get upgraded pistols back to our customers as quickly as possible. We are committed to achieving the fastest turnaround times we can, and since last Friday we have already upgraded and shipped thousands of the recalled pistols we have received.

As you might expect, a very large number of pistols came into the Armory the first few days after the recall was announced. We are currently upgrading the batch received during those first few days, and once we work through them, we will be in a better position to provide a more specific update on the status of returns.

We are working as quickly as we can to provide more definitive shipping information to everyone, and we are committed to doing just that on Friday, November 1st. For now, please know that in just the first week of production we have realized a number of increased efficiencies and we will continue to improve upon our pace of delivery in the days and weeks ahead.

Based on our testing - and the initial feedback from customers - we remain confident that owners will be extremely pleased with their upgraded pistols. When upgraded pistols are finished, customers will receive a shipping notice and tracking information at the e-mail address they provided for the XD-S™ recall.

The entire Springfield Armory® family greatly appreciates the patience and loyalty of our valued customers.

As a reminder, do not use your 3.3 XD-S™ until the upgrade has been performed.

Shipping continues to go very well and the speed of returns is increasing.

In our last update, we announced that shipping of upgraded XD-S™ pistols was underway and that in just the first week of production we realized a number of increased efficiencies, accelerating our upgrade and return time for each customer. Over the last week, we have upgraded and returned several thousand more pistols.

We are committed to achieving the fastest turnaround times as possible, and we will stick with that commitment until the last upgraded XD-S™ has left the Armory. Specifically, we expect to return upgraded pistols back to their owners as follows:

All XD-S™ pistols received at Springfield Armory® on or before September 10, 2013, will be upgraded and shipped back to their owners by Thanksgiving, if not before.

All XD-S™ pistols received between September 11-30, 2013, will be upgraded and shipped back to their owners by Christmas, if not before

All XD-S™ pistols received between October 1-31, 2013, will be upgraded and shipped back to their owners shortly after the holidays.


A very large number of pistols came into the Armory the first few days after the recall was announced. We are continuing to upgrade the first several batches received, and once we work through those pistols, progress will be even quicker. When your upgraded pistol is finished, you will receive a shipping notice and tracking information at the e-mail address you provided for the XD-S™ recall.
