    Think about it guys your not buying the gun again you are just sending it off to be repaired. It is no differant than if you were sending it to any other gunsmith. Your gun will come back to YOU at your home only thing is that an ADULT will have to sign for it from fedex. Also when l talked to speingfield they said guns will be repaired in the order that they recieve them. So no timeline can be given.So hurry and send it if your in a hurry.

    Um...I'm an engineer, and I know how this crap works. I've worked campaign recalls like this before. Sometimes the "fix" is a junk quick fix. And I guarantee you they are fixing these as quickly/cheaply as possible with that kind of quantity in order to legally cover their butt.

    For example, smith and wesson did a horrible job with the fix for the shield .40 mag drop problem. They just sent out dimpled mags as the fix. Now how is that a real fix when production mags are not dimpled? I was supposed to use only the 2 mags I had forever? And excessive frame flex was not addressed, etc...

    But thanks for your awesome input. You really opened my eyes

    So again, does anyone know if the new xds outside of the effected serial numbers has the roll pin? I'd like to know if they're replacing parts with factory spec parts, or if they're just duct taping the issue.

    I closed my thread and sent mine back this morning

    Meh... Not impressed but thanks for the condescension anyway. I would tend to believe that a "fix" related to a potential safety issue might be just a bit more involved than a junk fix for it to work correctly. You can have this eye roll back too.

    Do you send the entire pistol or just the frame?
