Thread: Lawsuit against Springfield Armory Inc?

  1. Mine's gone for the duration. Using an SA Champion in the interim. Happy about conflicting info from SA? No, but it is what it is. If a refund were offered, I'd certainly take it, but not going to happen. Having said that, I'd rather they take extra caution to find a bulletproof (pun intended) fix, rather than sending-out sidearms with a hastily cobbled fix (like the one picturing the roll-pin in the grip safety) that didn't work-out.

    I'm confident we will have our sidearms back when a safe and lasting fix is implemented, per their Oct. 4th update information on the website.

    Never had a problem with mine through 1300 rounds, but what does worry me is there are many who are continuing to use their XD-Ss, even though SA has told everyone to carefully unload and cease using them.

    I may understand those wanting to wait until the "fix" is official, until they send their arms for repair, but continued use is asking for a possible deadly incident to happen.

    There are cases where class action lawsuits are justified, but this one isn't there yet. There are no reports of injury or death, because of the defect.

    All I would suggest, in the name of safety; don't use your XD-Ss, until they are repaired. Please!
    I'm a firm believer in two term limits for all politicians; one in office, the other in prison.

    Recall or not, I still want one. Though a full size something or other will be the next purchase. Whenever I finally can afford it.

But as most know if you go with a new gun that has not been out for 2 years there are going to be problems. That is why I trade my 4th gen for a rifle and went back to my 3rd gen G19.
    I just waited until the 4th gens had the bugs worked out. Love my G22 fourth Gen and am selling my G23, 3rd gen, and the 8 magazines, and the .22 conversion kit for it.

    And so true about no one posting to sue Glock. Nice point.

    May I suggest an XDm in your favorite caliber? Rent one in the caliber you are interested in, and put it through it's paces.

    They are really well made firearms, and the full-size sidearms are not part of the recall. I believe only the XD-S series of single stack 9mm and .45s are affected. I've also been looking at the XDm series for a larger range/plinking gun.

    That's actually what I was thinking. Probably in .45 so I can hike with it as well, though it'll be quite a while before I can get one. Gotta save up.

    A bit more than I can afford to spend - even with my discount, and even the XD-M compact is still a bit wider than I want to carry. I'm a big guy (6'2, 370 lbs) and I can pull off carrying a full sized firearm concealed, but I want something with a narrower profile. I'll wait for my XD-S. If that ever has to change for some reason, I will go back to my other choice for a CC firearm, the Taurus 24/7 G2 compact .45 (blued).

    You can receive recall updates by text message if you text XDS to 25827.

    Here is a copy of the email I sent to Springfield, along with the response I just received:

    To Whom It May Concern:


    We are now a month down the road from when the recall notice was first issued, and you still have not yet identified a fix for the XD-S problem. I certainly understand the desire for safety, but your approach was wrong - especially if there were as few incidents as you have indicated.


    If there were truly as few cases as has been represented (and I have been acquainted with dozens of XD-S owners who have fired hundreds or more rounds through their firearms without incident, so I do believe the number of trouble firearms is indeed very small), then you should have waited until you had a fix in place and dealt with the trouble firearms on a case-by-case basis rather than disarm thousands of your customers. Frankly, slam fires are not at all unheard of in semi-auto handguns with free-floating firing pins, and unintended double-taps are also not unheard of if the free-floating firing pin somehow gets stuck. No one would have minded waiting a couple of weeks for their firearm to be fixed, but a couple of months or more is absurd. Additionally, there are those in law enforcement and security who rely on these firearms and need them on a daily basis; by the time you finally find a fix for this problem, you will have deprived them of the use of their firearm for MONTHS - and probably lost customers in the process. This is having an effect on new firearm sales as well.

    Again, I understand the desire for safety, but this would have been better handled on a case-by case basis until you developed a fix.

    Thank you for your email and input into our XD-S recall. All of our customers safety was our number one concern when we initiated the voluntary recall. We honestly did feel that we had the upgrade in place and would have been able to turn them around in the first 30 days. We are currently endurance testing what we feel is our final solution and hope to have more information by this Friday afternoon. Again, I do thank you for your email and please let me know if you have any other questions or comments.

    Thank you,
    Dawn
    Recall Center Supervisor
