Update ....
I have personally Test Fired the 'Newest' Version of the Springfield XDS, 9mm Subcompact Semi Auto Handgun at my Indoor Gun Range, sponsored by Springfield Firearms. The TEST Results and Target are below.

XDS 3.3 9mm ....

XDS 3.3 45acp ....

Answer:

Your information is correct. This is a Fatal RECALL started in October 2013 and is now in full swing, see the Youtube Video below for full explanation and demonstration. If you own a Springfield Armory XD-S 3.3 Compact. This is for both the 9mm and the 45 ACP Calibers. These are under recall and are dangerous to either shoot to have loaded.

Springfield Armory has a RECAL Website, if you own this handgun, unload it immediately, and go to this website:

For further information you can contact Springfield Armory at their call center:

Youtube Video: Why are the Springfield Armory XDS Handguns Being Recalled ...


I recently had an opportunity to Test Fire the Springfield 9mm XDS Sub Compact Handgun. The Target is shown below. I shot 10-Rounds at 35 Feet.
I cannot honestly recommend this handgun. I thought it performed poorly as related to other firearms in its class. Also, I did not personally like the grip on firearm.

  29. Under my leadership as Governor of Arizona if any gun owner in Arizona was/is injured from one of these handguns the CEO will answer for his mistakes.

    I am the DigitalMan and I am running as a Write-in Ballot for Governor of Arizona, Arizona residents pleas think out of the bix, it is time for some real change in politics, the 2-party system has ruined our state. I am just a regular person with hopefully some commonsense ideas.
    The first thing I am going to do when elected is raise the Minimum Wage across the board to $15.00 per hour.

  33. How long do RECALLS generally last?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. RECALLS last forever - the reason is simple. Many people buy firearms and never shoot them, lock them away, or they are sold as used. The current owner needs to research all firearms to see if any of the ones they own have been recalled.

  34. Recently fired one of the later models with all the fixes at a gun range.

  38. Like I said is there anyone out there in the firearms business that doesn't have a recall?

    ReplyDelete
  39. IMPORTANT: Be advised on Firearms and Ammo ReCalls - There is NO expiration date on recalls for various reasons.
    If you own or purchased a Firearm or Ammo always check to see if there is a recall on that model or Lot Number.
