    I was wanting to buy a recoil spring assembly... nothing is wrong with mine YET, I just figured I would use the stock assembly for my range time, then when I clean it after my range visit (I clean it after every trip to the range), swap the spring assembly out for the new one for when I carry. That way the spring assembly is always new when/if I may need to use it.

    So I gave Springfield a call after reviewing their website and noticing that the recoil spring assembly for the XDs is not listed for sale or in stock.

    I requested to speak with someone is sales. When the woman answered the phone I let her know I wanted to purchase the XDs recoil spring assembly just to have a spare... she said they did indeed have them. Then I asked about the 5 round magazines, which they also had for $28.95. I then asked about their 45 ACP Mag loader, I already ordered a UPULA, but the springfield model attaches to the picatinny rail on the side of the mag holder and would just add to my collection... and it was only $19.

    She informed me that the reloader would not work with the XDs and they did not yet have one that would... so I didn't get it of course. However, the recoil spring assembly and 5 round magazine were in stock.

    While on the phone I asked about the 9mm 9 round, 9mm 7 round and the 45 7 round... she said they had them all. It paid off to give them a call instead of just assuming the products weren't in stock. Just FYI to anyone who may be looking.

    VERY pleasant and helpful personnel.

    Do these recoil springs wear out? I have not heard if ordering a backup spring.

    Ordered one just now. Said it will ship Monday. I have not heard of one breaking but they do get some wear, especially at the start. It is just an insurance policy in a way. I figure they will weaken at some point in time. The person I leave the gun to in my will may be able to use it.

    All springs weaken with use. Especially with the short barrel, high caliber XDS 45. I'll wanna have a new one on hand by 1,500 rounds in case my working weapon starts FTF or FTE. I'm still good at 1,000 flawless rounds. Anyone wear one out yet?
