    Springfield Armory 3.3 XD-S SAFETY RECALL

    Springfield Armory 3.3 XD-S SAFETY RECALL

    GENESEO, IL - -(Ammoland.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

    Thanks for the link. I traded my boss the XD-S for a Glock 19. I just called him to let him know. Luckily he's a gunsmith/FFL holder/range manager, so I don't have to worry about some poor schmuck shootin' himself or someone else.

    You mean it's a safety issue? All this time I thought it was an "in-combat load" feature! Dang!

    I wonder if Springfield will pay for the holes in my floor.

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    I laughed, but then I figured I had to ask:

    Did you experience an issue with the firearm? Or are your holes imaginary?

    Nah, my floors are fine. My toes, on the other hand....

    Seriously, no malfunctions, but looks like my SN is near the smack-dab middle of the range, so I'll have to send it in...

    Look at the bright side, folks. This validates why you should own multiple guns! At least three, given the Shield and XDS recalls!

    See that? That's called making lemonade. Like that trick? Got more of 'em...

    Ours will be going back for a checkup. I hope they are quick & efficient. We've never had a single issue.
