    ATTENTION

    3.3 XD-S™ SAFETY RECALL

    Issued August 28, 2013
    Technical Background Get Started Contact Us Springfield-Armory.com
    Springfield Armory® is initiating this voluntary safety recall to upgrade 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm and 3.3 XD-S™ .45ACP pistols with new components, which eliminate the possibility of a potentially dangerous condition. We want to emphasize that no injuries have been reported to date.

    Springfield has determined that under exceptionally rare circumstances, some 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm and .45ACP caliber pistols could experience an unintended discharge during the loading process when the slide is released, or could experience a double-fire when the trigger is pulled once. The chance of these conditions existing is exceptionally rare, but if they happen, serious injury or death could occur.

    What should you do?
    STOP USING YOUR 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm or .45ACP PISTOL AND CAREFULLY UNLOAD IT!

    To begin the upgrade process and for fastest response, click on the Get Started link at the top of the page. On that page enter your serial number and click Next. If your pistol is subject to this recall, you will need to provide your name, address, phone number, and email address. The serial number is located on the frame beneath the dust cover (accessory rail). If you prefer, you may initiate the upgrade process by calling 800-680-6866. If you no longer own the 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm or .45ACP pistol, please advise Springfield of the current owner.

    XD-S Serial Number

    What pistols are involved?
    This Safety Recall applies only to:
    Springfield 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm pistols - serial numbers between XS900000 and XS938700
    Springfield 3.3 XD-S™ .45ACP pistols - serial numbers between XS500000 and XS686300.

    This Safety Recall does not apply to any XD® or XD(M)® pistols.

    What will Springfield do?
    Springfield will send you a return authorization and mailing label, allowing you to return your 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm or .45ACP pistol to Springfield at no cost to you. Springfield will upgrade your 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm or .45ACP pistol with the new components, and return it to you. Springfield will provide tracking numbers so you can monitor the receipt and return of your upgrades.

    Questions?
    Visit Springfield Armory. com for further information about this safety recall. You can reach the Springfield Armory Call Center at 800-680-6866. Springfield apologizes for this inconvenience, but your safety is our paramount concern.

    We greatly appreciate your loyalty to Springfield products.

    Go to their site or xdspistol dot com and you will see the announce. I don't have 10 posts yet, so I can't post actual links.

    I recall things vaguely, if that helps.

    I'll miss my XDS while it's away. Figures, I'm expecting my CCW permit any day now.

    Even though my XDs has been flawless for almost 1300 rounds, I think I'll go ahead and send it in anyways.

    Does anyone know what parts Springfield is going to replace? I really don't feel like taking out the PRP stuff.

    The site appears to be unavailable now. There has to be an overload of traffic!

    I was able to get through to the site and entered my serial number for my .45. The number is XS5750XX. The site told me that my pistol is NOT on the recall list. This means you can't go by the range of serial numbers alone. You must check with the site.


    I was able to check my 9mm and serial number XS9033XX and it also is NOT on the recall list.

    Considering the website appeared to be having issues earlier, I would check again later...
