Apparently their have been some incidents of slamfiring due to the defect and in other cases the defect only resulted in the primer getting dented.

If you all want an excellent polymer trigger, find a PPQ M2.

Just curious samurai, when did you send yours in? I'm just trying to establish a time frame.

Got a letter today, asking for my gun. It's funny they must follow the forum because I didn't buy mine from a gun store, I bought it from a private party, who I am sure only knew my first name if that, when we looked at ID"S, So either he has the best memory, "over a year", "maybe more" or they got my name from some ware, like perhaps a warrantee registration I don't remember filling out. Watch out for black helicopters.

I heard on another forum that they've started trickling back to their owners....

....now begins the endless whining about the returned condition, trigger pull, etc. I hope it doesn't become another standard weekly thread like bear guns or open carry.

or, if you could only have one gun.....

Back on topic...I have read a few reports indicating the trigger is a bit smoother as result of the "upgrade," and the increased pull weight is barely noticeable, maybe 1/2 lb or so. I Also read that the "upgrade" is not a bandaid fix but the standard moving forward on new production XDs guns. Certainty encouraging news if it turns out to be accurate.

I really miss my XDs, looking forward to its return.

Gun returning

Got an email with shipping data saying my XDs will be here today. Sent it in about a month ago, when the notice first came out. It arrived via Fed EX about 1000 this morning. Came with an extra 7 round magazine.

I received my Springfield XDs RECALL letter yesterday, the 22nd. It is dated the 11th.

After I read some good reports from folks testing their returned pistols and it appears to me that SA has sent most of The Surge back, I will send mine in.

I got a letter from them in the mail yesterday from SA saying I need to send my xds into them because my serial number falls in range of the recall. They already have my xds.
The only thing was they had the wrong serial number on my letter. I'm going to call them today and make sure I get my name matched up with my serial number in their system. I understand they are buried in work and I hate to call them, but this could be a potentially bad problem.

You know, I'm trying to be patient but this makes me a little mad. I'm happy for anyone who has gotten their pistol back, but I sent mine in almost 2 months ago and haven't heard a thing. I thought it was going to be first come first serve. My patience is fading.

If you guys want to complain about not getting your pistols back yet, go over to XDtalk and do it, you will fit right in. There are thousands of people whose pistols arrived at SA the first day and haven't heard anything back, myself included. Patience is a virtue.

I sent mine in on August 30th so that's eight weeks this Friday. My house goes on the market on 11/1 and I'm leaving Arkansas on 11/7 and so I'll most likely have to ask Springfield to send it to an FFL here in Arkansas.

anyone else think it's weird that Springfield kept marketing the crap out of the XDs despite the recall? I appreciate them initiating the recall and i'm not complaining about not having my XDs with me for an extended period of time, but it seems a bit shady to me that they kept littering the magazines with advertisements minus any mention of the gun's problems.

Just because they were marketing doesn't mean you could find one in stores. I haven't seen one since the recall started. I'm sure they still plan to sell a bunch afterwards, especially now that the bugs are getting worked out. While the entire deal has been irritating, I still love the gun and can't wait to have it back.

I may pick up a lightly used second one as I'm sure plenty of people will get theirs back, not trust it any more, and ditch it.

The recall has only been going for a couple months. Generally those kinds of magazines are printed weeks before you see them and things like advertisements are decided long before that. I'd be willing to bet they paid for a block of advertising over a six month period or longer.

Yup. Me too. Some folks are bound to be put off permanently which is unfortunate. I still have a huge desire to own and shoot an XD-S in .45 so when the smoke has cleared I'll be in the market for a new one or a low round count used one.

This whole ordeal has been frustrating but the springer XD-S is still a very potent and functional piece. If they have the bugs worked out I'm ready to go!
