Springfield Armory Recalls 3.3 XD-S Pistols for Safety Reasons

Springfield Armory (Springfield) is recalling certain 3.3 XD-S™ 9mm and 3.3 XD-S™ .45ACP pistols (serial numbers below). The reason for the safety recall is 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.” This could cause serious injury or death. If you own an XD-S 9mm or .45 ACP pistol subject to recall, stop using the pistol, carefully unload it, and return it to Springfield. Springfield will install new components that should eliminate the potentially dangerous condition.
