Springfield Recall

Springfield Armory has issued a voluntary safety recall for their .45 ACP and 9mm XD-S pistols.
Issued Aug. 28, 2013, the recall identified the following issue:
“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.”
According to Springfield, no injuries have been reported to date. The recall applies to a select number of XD-S pistols based on their serial numbers. Pistols affected by the recall include: XD-S 9mm pistols with serial numbers between XS900000 and XS938700, and XD-S .45 ACP pistols with serial numbers between XS500000 and XS686300.
To arrange for recall repairs, follow the instructions on this recall registration page. You can also contact the Springfield Armory Call Center at (800) 680-6866 to send in your pistol for service at Springfield’s expense.

Hi, I would like to show a funny android app that i have developed. Hope you like it and that will be useful:

" Tired of not being able to get up every morning? Want to go out every day of bed quickly and energy? You are in luck! with Angry Alarm is virtually impossible to stay asleep. Wake up each morning with a shot and feel alive and strong to start a new day.

Choose between different weapons to customize your alarm: AK-47, Colt, MP44 .. The application to set alarms for different days of the week, vibrate, snooze the alarm when it rings a few minutes ..

The application is simple to use, requires no registration and does not read information from your phone. "

I sent my xds in as soon as I heard about this recall. On my first inquirey they told me I would receive it back in 30 days. My 30 days is near and I called again to be told it will now be 10 to 12 weeks. I find this totally unacceptable as this is my only means of my families safety. Furthermore the person who I spoke with told me " I am lucky to be able to carry because I live in wisconsin." Totally unprofessional. Why would it matter where I live after my purchase. I was told a superviser would contact me later today but haven't heard from them. I would surely like a resolve to this matter

I'm sorry you had this issue with Springfield Armory.

If you documented who you spoke with I would first contact them again and inform them. Contact the main office, not the repair center number. That type of treatment is inexcusable in my opinion.

Second, not knowing your financial situation I would start hitting pawn shops looking for an inexpensive but decent and reliable replacement.

Personally I have several different pistols I use for carry, from multiple revolvers to 3 different semi-automatics.

One is none and two is one. Always have a backup just in case.

Send me an e-mail through my greylocke e-mail address with some of your info and I will try to get in touch with Springfield also to see if maybe the weight of the GBBL might be able to help. I cannot guarantee anything, but I will try.
