Mine will be back soon. I haven't missed it but I'll be glad to have it back.
In the interim XDm compact .45 has sufficed.

I'm with you- sent one of mine in almost TWO months ago also..to hear of someone getting theirs back in ONE month is disturbing. I suspect the poster got his date wrong.
Heck one person in this thread sent his in 3 weeks before the recall was even announced!

The latest email has a video and boy is it interesting to see pallets of XD-S's. I didn't send it in the case with mine so I imagine there were a good amount of others around too.

I kind of miss my XD-S because I'm carrying everyday now where I didn't before and the width helped.

They are still working on guns that arrived on 9/3. They just started shipping those pistols back to the owners last week. Therefore there is no way possible that somebody received theirs back in a month. Mine was delivered the morning if 9/3 and I haven't heard squat. I hope it to be soon but I'm not going to complain about it, I'm sick of the whining.

Anguishing does no good. Keep it or sell it when it comes back.
Has anyone been in
a gun fight where the outcome would have been different if you were carrying your XDs and didn't have it? What were you carrying previously. It worked then, I am assuming you are carrying it now.

I strongly suspect that very little (if any) of that video interlude contains images of the XDss being "upgraded" ... it is merely generic footage of XDss being assembled and shipped ... which explains all of those big black XDs cases.

They wanted some video that they would look like the repairs being done. As with most companies these days, they are more interested in appearance than honesty (like the now-infamous message, "Send us your XDs and we will have it "upgraded" and returned within 30 days").

Doesn't really matter so long as they get the pistols repaired & returned asap. Early reports that I have read seem to indicate that SA managed to repair these XDs without screwing up something else, which, if it proves out, will be the Good News.

BTW, I believe that they are accurate in referring to these repairs as Upgrades, since they have actually improved & replaced the design of key components.

Not trying to pick on you, xwingband ... I just saw that you mentioned the video and that was the target of my post.

Yeah, I too could care less if it's real or not for the footage, so long as the fix is being done. I remember a shot of pins being driven out of the gun so I'd tend to some of it being quite real. Knowing how many were sold through just my local area it was just a good reminder at the volume being gone through though. If one person can go through a gun in 5 minutes to upgrade it, it would take a while to go through thousands.

Like I said I'll be happy to get my pistol back. I have others and it'll be nice to add it back into the rotation once it's been returned. Mine was in the first batch so it will hopefully be back soon.

I just checked the website and my status has changed to "fixed." That means I should expect my pistol back by the end of the week. For reference mine was delivered to SA the morning of 9/3.

My XD-S is being delivered this Wednesday!! I shipped mine on August 30th. I just received a text from FedEx to tell me that a package is being delivered but I've heard nothing from Springfield. I went to the FedEx website to track the package and it's coming from Geneseo, IL so it's obviously from Springfield.

Just got notice that mine will be home Wednesday!

I sent it in on 8/30/13, so doing the higher math, 2 months. I think that is pretty good considering the sheer volume of pistols involved.

Did anyone here actually have a problem with their xds denting a primer or actually firing on racking a round or double shooting?

No. Never had a problem with my Ruger LCP or my SW Walther PPK but was not going to be the "poster boy" for them.

If the company says it's broke and will fix it free, not about to argue with them.

Mine left my house on 8/29 and supposed to be back today-10/30. I'll have to run a couple of boxes of ammo through it to check it out.

I sent mine in late September as I was out of the country when it first started. I am tempted to speculate that the turnaround time will be quicker for pistols sent in later since we went almost a month with no fix at all....

or it could be that so many pistols went back that the backlog increases with each day we waited to send ours in. either way, i'm happy to get mine back, whenever that may be. mine still says received, but I'm optimistic it will come back soon...

FedEx delivered my XD-S this morning. The pistol showed up in a "new" hard plastic box measuring approximately 9"x6"x2" and came with a 7-round magazine as promised. As others have reported, the trigger is definitely heavier and the pull feels longer than I remember but it's smooth. On a side note, you can still pull the slide back without depressing the grip safety (unlike XD/XDM models). I was wondering if that feature would be retained. I didn't have any issues before I sent the pistol in to Springfield but I'll shoot the pistol this week, carry it today and decide what's next for this thing.

Got my XDs 9 back yesterday. The trigger may have a bit more take up and it definitely has bit more weight to the pull, but the let-off is still nice and crisp.
The pistol was clean, was returned in the box I shipped it in and the extra 9rd mag was included.
All in all, well done. (Although I had never had any problems with the gun prior to sending it in.)
