Springfield Armory has recalled its 3.3 XD-S subcompact pistol in 9mm and .45 ACP to prevent an unintended discharge occurring in rare circumstances, the company announced Wednesday.

The gun maker has found that the pistol can discharge during the loading process when the slide is released or could experience a double fire when the trigger is pulled once, according to a safety notice.

The recall applies to XD-S 9mm serial numbers between XS900000 and XS938700, as well as XD-S .45 ACP serial numbers between XS500000 and XS686300.

The company is advising owners to immediately stop using their XD-S and carefully unload it. Owners can locate the pistol's serial number on the underside of the barrel and visit this Website to begin the recall process.

Springfield will upgrade the pistol and new components and return it to owners.

So much for Quality Control! The price people pay for firearms these days you think the product would be freakin perfect.

Of course our firearms are made by the lowest bidder

Capt Crunch, I am with you when was the last time they recalled a wheel gun? I started out carrying a wheel gun and had to qualify at 50 yds 18 rounds left hand rigthink ht hand and prone! Timed! These kids now think 25 yds is too far to shoot!

Capt. Crunch, I could almost say Amen. As an Addendum, and IMHO, if they aren't strong enough to carry anybody's 1911, get a desk job.
