That would be awesome. If that was an option, I would gladly take it. I was getting ready to sell it anyways...

I love mine. I'm thinking of buying a new one outside the serial number range of the recall. (If there are any!)

I'll bet they will be backed up for a year fixing all those pistols.

My XD-S was delivered to the Geneseo facility at 10:00am this morning. I dropped it off on Friday so it's been four days thus far.

My guess is the queue will only be longer a few months from now, as only the most "in tune" people are even aware of the recall.

Every XDs produced to date is within the serial number range. IOW every XDs has been recalled.

That is a good possibility ... or perhaps reality will settle somewhere in the middle.

<shrug> Even if you are correct, when I do finally send my pistol (which is operating flawlessly) in the folks fixing them will be well-trained & seasoned to the task and the process should have all of its kinks worked out. I am happy to have them "practice" on all of those pistols shipped in the initial surge.

Or as the saying goes "familiarity breeds contempt". I'll be selling mine once it gets back with full disclosure to the new owner. I realized that I much prefer my Ruger KLCR to the XD-S both in terms of carrying and shooting. The recall has nothing to do with my decision to sell the pistol.

Sorry, but you have lost me with this. I understand the saying, just not your use of it here.

Springfield is now quoting 30 DAYS turn around.
Sure glad I have other carry guns, feel really bad for people that don't.

Apparently, they have also indicated that the "upgrades" will not actually begin until mid-September.

I sent mine back in a small FedEx box, wrapped it in bubble wrap. Taped a business card to the firearm (you never know). Local FedEx office didnt say a word. Arrived Tues (9/3) at 9:45, along with 7K other XDs. Talked to SA and they expect 250K units to be returned. Normal turnaround would be 2-3 weeks, here they expect 4-6 weeks.

Back to the Sig P220 Compact for my EDC.

I'm curious how you determined how many other XDs pistols were delivered the same day as yours? That is a staggering number for ONE day, or really even in total this early in the recall.

Did SA notify you that they received it? Just wondering, FedEx shipped mine last Tuesday, 9-3-13 and I haven't heard a word.

Actually spoke with the SA CS manager who stated "we received over 7K units this morning". Perhaps it was a huge over-estimate, but IHHO, a huge amount of XDs was received. Far more than anticipated.

Place the Firearm in the original case, it fits into a Large Flat Box at FEDEX, with your RMA from Springfield it is VERY Painless. All of 5 minutes. BTW, Springfield has a Second Day Delivery Waiver, Ask the Shippers if they have facilities to store firearms overnight, and if not do you need additional insurance, They will get it out that evening if at all possible.

No man, but if you put in your tracking number on Fedex's website it will tell you if it was delivered. That's how I confirmed delivery.

I sent mine on August 31st. Hope she comes home soon. I am carrying an SP-101 in the mean time, but boy am I remembering why I made the switch. IWB carry is so much easier with the XDs.

Thanks for the info. Just notified a good friend who has one that falls into this recall. Hopefully everyone receives their SA's back in a timely manner!

I think we should start a new thread to track when folks have sent theirs in and when they get them back....
