Anyone else notice on the website they said you'll get a free extended mag and grip insert?

Nice of them to include.

Heard on Tom Gresham's GUNTALK:

The "fix" is a new grip safety as well as a more positive interface between the sear & trigger. The representative on the show from Springfield said it was so simple it was ... sorta hard to think up I guess. The rep also stated there will be a roll pin visible on the grip safety as pictured earlier in this thread.
Guns will start shipping back in a three+ weeks.

I'll wait to see how long they average on the return. I may sell my house by then the way it looks.

I have not seen one for sale at any gun store in the last 3 weeks. Has Springfield stopped shipping new ones?

I'm sure they have. No point in shipping firearms that need to returned for a recall.

I'm not too happy about the disclosure that the mods will increase the pull weight of the trigger. We will see.

That may not be such a bad thing, safety wise ...but if it makes it really obnoxiously heavy in terms of trigger pull, yes on a small pistol that WOULD be bad.
As you say, we will see . . . .

Great.

Now I wait for reports on the trigger pull change. They claim "smoother", so I'm not entirely pessimistic about it.
The XD(S) is a nice little gun, but neither of ours has a nice trigger, exactly. Not like the XD45c or XD9sc - those have very nice triggers for striker-fired guns, in my opinion.

They are probably just shotgunning all info ... everyone in their XDs dB(s) gets all notifications.

Easier, cheaper and safer that way.

I had over 500 rounds through my XDs before sending it in, without a single reliability issue of any kind. 500 rounds is usually my preferred minimum before trusting a gun for defense.

I'm now curios as to how many additional rounds other people will feel comfortable with after getting theirs back, assuming they were satisfied with the reliability before sending it in, and considering the technicalities of the repair. Do you treat it as a new gun and start over?

I had well over 500 through mine and not a hint of a problem. For me if a gun can shoot 100 or maybe 200 rounds reliably, then it should shoot 1000-2000 or 10,000-20,000. Maybe it comes down to what the failure mechanism is - did these parts reach some wear state? Were some parts at the minimum material condition? I believe Springfield mentioned parts with more and beefier material.

But also I thought one issue was the ability to rack the slide without the palm safety, therefore chambering a round, but not resetting the trigger, leaving the firing pin unrestrained other than the firing pin spring.

I still have mine, and re checked it a hundred times, safety's work fine. The trigger resets just like it is supposed to. I understand the gravity of the situation, but will wait until they get these guns out of the way, before being without a gun that works fine, at the present time.
As long as it's pointed in a safe direction when loading it, the most that can happen is a hollowpoint hit's a concrete slab.
