I had been thinking about the XDs 9 but it didn't come out in time so went with the PPS. Now I have yet another reason to be glad.

I wonder what the failure mechanism is.

"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."

The striker-pin block should prevent discharge during loading if there was a problem with sear engagement. Maybe the exceptionally rare circumstance during loading is if the block was stuck AND something else failed.

The double-fire may also be a sear or disconnector issue.

Doesn't exactly sound like a design issue, more like a component/material weakness.

My first new Springfield and my first recall. SN XS55XXXX. Poop.

My XDs falls within the serial number range of the recalls ...just filled out the online form / received my fedex label. Will send my XDs off tomorrow morning ..

...I only have shot 200 rounds through it with no persistent malfunctions (a FTF here and there with JHPs, but I attribute those to new pistol+newbie shooter error) ...

..I hope I get it back from Springfield in time for my next planned range trip on Sept 28th ...

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.

"Springfield Armory® is initiating this voluntary safety recall to upgrade"

I'm lost here .....With the chance of doubling and firing during reload....Why would this be considered a Voluntary recall?

BTW, I helped a friend of mine pick out one of these at a gun show a couple of months ago......sent him a text @ 6:38 pm. His was his first gun. Hes doing the on line recall tomorrow. I feel kind of bad.

Sure enough, my XDs .45 falls into the recall serial no. range.

Since it's going back... I'm going to call and also raise the issue of light primer strikes. Maybe they will look at that as well.

Already sent mine in, 30 minutes after I got my shipping label. Included a note about my tight extractor and light strikes. Hope they do a full workup. Maybe they'll throw in a trigger job for my troubles? (I've heard of them doing this before)

Just noticed your post after I posted :P. Definitely complain about the light strikes, and how the slide doesn't return to battery if press checked. The more people do, the better. Maybe they'll fix it all.

Cheeze, second time my XDs will have to go back...And my XDM-comp also went back once. I have an SA M1a which is the BEST, but Not sure WTH they are doing in Croatia with these pistols (only firearms I have ever needed to return)...What a PITA!...Thanks for the Heads-up though!

I was flipping between two websites trying to choose a new holster for mine when I saw the recall. With so many involved, Im guessing there won't be a quick turn around.

This is why I have not bought an XDs and do not ever buy a new version of any firearm until 4 to 5 years after it has been out

We are human, we do not make perfect things, it takes time to get the bugs worked out sometimes

That said, I own an XD .40 service and an XD sc 9mm, never a problem with either

You gotta wonder how many guys (and gals) had some very embarrassing AD's dropping the slide on a live round.
