Springfield Armory ReCall Registration
Heads up XDs owners.
Springfield Armory® is initiating this voluntary safety recall to upgrade 3.3 XD-STM 9mm and 3.3 XD-STM .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-STM 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-STM 9mm or .45ACP PISTOL AND CAREFULLY UNLOAD IT!
To begin the upgrade process and for fastest response, go to www.springfieldrecall.com. Request a return authorization for the 3.3 XD-STM Recall. You will need to provide your name, address, phone number, email address and the serial number of your 3.3 XD-STM. The serial number is located on the frame beneath the dust cover (accessory rail).
If you don’t have computer access you may initiate the upgrade process by calling 800-680-6866. If you no longer own the 3.3 XD-STM 9mm or .45ACP pistol, please advise Springfield of the current owner.
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-ST.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.

So if I send mine off, does it come back to me? Or a FFL. If it goes to a FFL will I be able to pick it up? I am only 19...
Holy smokes... Now I need to send it back. I have had it for more than 2 months but haven't taken to the range yet. I guess that's a good thing.
My wife just bought a XDS 9 last week and the serial # is in that range. This sucks!!
Guns don't kill people the government does!!!!
The recall site seems to be down. Anybody else experiencing this? I'm getting
The Recall Registration site is currently unavailable due to site maintenance.
Getting same message about site being down.
I, too, am unable to access the maintenance form at this time. Re: the question about the return of the gun to the owner or an FFL, I am of the opinion that the gun would be returned to the owner. This assumption is based on the fact the gun is being shipped to and from the manufacturer for repair purposes.
I would assume the shipping will be from and to the owner and if there is any requirement to be shipped to the FFL, the cost would be covered by Springfield. I will try to call them tomorrow. The site isn't working for me too.
