Springfield Armory Issues Safety Recall for XD-S Pistols

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.
