Exclamation XDS-9 My Major Malfunction 7 Rounds Full Auto - UPDATE / Now Safety Recall

Okay so I reported some difficulty I was having with the XDS-9 trigger not resetting, on XDTalk here:
XDs-9 Ok, I was stupid...
and got the normal "it's not the gun; clean it; etc". So I was limping it along thinking the problems would correct with break-in. Not so. My XSD is on the way back to Springfield Armory. Here's most of the written description they asked for:

Since purchase of the gun 5/31/13 I have had problems with the trigger assembly not always returning forward upon insertion of the magazine and release of the slide. I tried to remedy the situation by thoroughly cleaning in the trigger assembly area. However it seemed to recur each time I returned to the range. Generally I would field strip the slide and work the trigger assembly back and forth and upon reassembly could proceed to shoot with no issues, until the next time at the range.

Today when I got to the range the trigger assembly was again hung up. I field stripped the gun and worked the trigger assembly and reassembled the slide. I reinserted a full magazine of 7 rounds. When I released the slide the gun went full auto and unloaded all 7 rounds.

I had the gun pointed downrange but was not prepared for the recoil. One of the rounds hit the metal border on the shooting bench in front of me. Shrapnel from that round tore through my range bag creating many holes, shooting through an electronic pair of ear muffs, and marring the finish on my XDM-9 slide. The first rounds shot horizontally just across the top of the shooting bench as shown by the damage to the pile of targets that were laying there on the bench.

Through the seven rounds I was able to hold on to the gun and keep it pointed down range and aside from shrapnel marks on my pants, luckily no personal bodily damage occurred.


I'll not add much more here to keep this from getting too long. Although I always have a good grip on my guns I was not prepared for 7 shots in .5 seconds. Had the recoil flipped the gun some of those rounds could have been in my head. I was in such shock I cannot tell you where my right-hand trigger finger was after the incident, only that it was NOT inside the trigger guard when I released the slide; I've been shooting guns now for 40 years so I'm experienced and know better.

Springfield will check out the gun, hopefully replace the whole thing. They asked for photos of all the damage and will refinish my XDM slide.

I got more religion today. When you hear 'em say somebody was looking out for you today, well... I've lived that. If you want, see pics of the collateral damage here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/xtf7ig2dersu0ll/Tu3e9rynNX

Glad nobody was hurt. Too bad you didn't get video of it. Has your pulse returned to normal yet?

No, my pulse has not yet returned to normal.

{Edit: I've since lost some sleep over it too.}

It's also a good thing it wasn't in your house. Can you imagine reloading after a cleaning and having that happen?

Wow Randy. That's scary just thinking about it. Thank God you weren't hurt. I feel a little guilty for referring you to the dealer that sold it to you. That could have been me.

Same thing happened to a guy at our IDPA club match a few weeks ago. He was shooting a Glock, though.

I hope Springfield gets you a replacement soon.
