My pistol which I purchased Oct. 18, 2014 has a test fire shell that is dated Jan. 30, 2013 on the envelope. Would this mean that the gun sat in the dealers safe for over a year and a half or does Springfield have them stocked up to where they still have the older ones around? Thanks for any replies

A while in Croatia, a while in transit, a while in customs, a while in Springfield's warehouse, then it was 'kit-ed' where it was put in a nicer case with holster, mags, lock, manuals, etc., then stored till shipped to a dealer, who stored it till you bought it.

The XD40 I bought in April 2010 had a January 2010 test date.

Gun must have been in a hurry to get to me!
