Right on the heels of the S&W Shield announcement Springfield Armory has issued a recall of some of it’s popular XDS 9 and XDS 45 3.3″ pistols.
My XDS 9mm falls in the recall range and I’ll be keeping everyone updated on how the recall progresses. To date, I have not had any malfunctions with my pistol.
The recall is fairly expansive and encompasses:
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.
Springfield says the pistol could fire unintentionally when the slide is released or it may “double-fire” and fire twice with one pull of the trigger. I urge all my readers to check the serial numbers of their XDS handguns immediately, this is a serious safety issue.
You can read more about the recall at Springfield’s official recall page where you can also file an online claim for a shipping label and service.
