This review is going to be a little different than most. That’s because this wasn’t my gun for long enough to really have an opinion on it. I got the Springfield Armory XD-S 9mm, and within two days, someone stole it from me! But that doesn’t mean you can’t read about how awesome of a gun it is anyway.
1. What is a survival gear item you own and are really happy with?
2. What is a survival gear item that you have considered but haven’t pulled the trigger on yet?
3. How prepared do you feel for disaster/disaster type events happening in our lifetime?
If you can’t find it, we’ll make it.
4. Would your survive if society were to disintegrate tomorrow when the power grid went down, and all 9-1-1 call centers ceased operations?
A few years back, Springfield Armory came out with a single stack 9mm to much fanfare and then as quickly as the pistol launched, they promptly recalled it due to an unsafe condition. The recall read: “Springfield Armory is initiating this voluntary safety recall in order upgrade 3.3 XD-S 9mm and 3.3 XD-S .45ACP pistols with new components that eliminate the possibility of a potentially dangerous situation.” We want you know we have not received any reports for injuries at time of publishing this article so please contact us if there are questions or concerns about your gun’s status!
A few years ago, Springfield armory released their newest handgun model–the Single Stack Nine millimeter (XD-9). A
Springfield has determined that under exceptionally rare circumstances, some of their pistols could experience an unintended discharge during the loading process or a double-fire when the trigger is pulled once. Serious injury and death are possible if these conditions happen but they’re EXTREMELY RARE!
Springfield Armory has been monitoring the quality of their guns and have implemented new standards to ensure that they will never sell any more unsafe guns. They are committed to keeping customers safe by taking back every XD-S 3.3″ barrel pistol ever sold, repairing them with modifications made in order for it not happen again, then returning these pistols while also changing manufacturing process at the factory so that all future production is now up-to away from this issue as well.
The best way to know if you want something.
If you are looking to buy a used XD-S 9mm 3.3″ pistol, look for roll pins on the outside grip safety without disassembling the gun! The upgraded pistols have been made with sights and bugs worked out so we loved it as promised.
The downside of the single stack is that a magazine will carry 7 rounds in the flush fitting mag and 8 rounds in an extended magazine. I have never heard someone say, “I wish I had less ammunition during a gunfight.” If you want to be able to take more shots without reloading, this might not be for you!
