My XD-s 9mm went into "fixed status" but I've not received a shipping email confirmation as of yet....

Went at picked mine up at FedEx last night. Trigger has a little longer pull but it feels very crisp. I'll throw a couple hundred rounds through it this afternoon when I get home.

It took about 36 hours to receive the shipping label via e-mail for me once I observed the change to "fixed." Also, check your spam folder just in case.

I picked mine up last night as well. I'm not thrilled with the trigger. It's a long pull. Not particularly smooth, and the release isn't particularly crisp on mine. I e-mailed my contact at Springfield to see what my options are.

Yeah.... I got it this morning after emailing Springfield... I stopped by FedEx to get them to hold it for me in the morning. I'll pick it up on my way to work. The verdict is still out on these pistols it seems. Mine have always been reliable, but if the triggers don't feel positive. I might consider selling my 2. People in the market for one will be getting killer deals on the used market as people flood the market with ones they no longer want. Granted this pistol was never intended to be a match-grade target pistol.... Heavy triggers (even of they break crisply) are not really my cup o' tea.

I'm not selling jack ****. If this pistol shoots like crap, I'll be going after Springfield to get my investment back. This is NOT the pistol I bought. If the trigger ends up feeling fine at the range, then so be it. Based on a dry-fire, though, it feels like a petrified sponge. But obviously the range is the big test.

Lmao @ "Wet Sponge" I can attest the accuracy is there via my Xds-45..... It was just as easy to keep on target as before, but the trigger was NOT the trigger it once was. Now granted, my xds-9mm came shipped with an improved feel to the trigger pull when I bought it. We shall see.....

Just put a 100 rounds through it. Still amazed at how good the ejection is, hard 330 at about 10 feet. Wish my Glocks did that. Definitely a longer trigger pull. (not PM9 long but longer than before) caused shooting a little low left, took me some time to adjust. Mine has a nice crisp break but Not sure what to think yet. It is still fun to shoot.

Sometimes I forget to tightly close my safe that is in my truck. I hope that Saturday night at 11pm when I park at the local Walmart I remember to at least lock my doors in case I leave my windows down.

The triggers on mine feel better after putting 200 rds through both of them. Still heavier with a longer reset though. The good news is no failures of any type with either gun. I'm curious what you decide after firing yours. Hope it works out for you.

I've been pretty vocal about the way Springfield handled this. And I got a lot of bs for calling them on it. So here goes.
I don't think the trigger is quite the same as before the "fix". That said, considering these are CCW weapons, the triggers are still better than most. Most of those complaining would be thrilled with the XDS as-is had they never handled the XDS before the fix. And if the slight difference in trigger pull makes any difference in your ability to hit a target at ranges this gun was designed for, buy another box of ammo and practice.
I also hope anyone seriously thinking of an XDS as an "investment" has a wife with a good handle on finance.

Got mine back Monday. The trigger is a little stiffer but I'm sure with a little use it will lighten up a bit. My gun came back in the same pristine condition I sent it off in. The recall took a little longer than I would have liked but all things being considered I think S/A and Fed Ex did one hell of a job.
My XDS9 isn't going anywhere except on my hip. I simply love that pistol as an EDC piece.

I got one back yesterday. I compared it against the unmodified one that I have not sent back yet. I don’t have a trigger pull gauge, but the trigger pull is noticeably heavier on the upgraded gun, but it has a lot less creep than the unmodified version of the same gun. In fact, the trigger pull on the unmodified versions has always been annoying because it is extremely creepy. I can stage the trigger on the modified gun by taking up the slack, getting a slight amount of creep, and then getting a “wall” or what a revolver shooter would call a break. I can pretty much tell when the modified gun will go off, which I could not predict with the unmodified guns. Although the modified gun has a much heavier trigger pull than my stock Glock 30, it has a crisp feel more similar to my Glock than the unmodified gun. On balance, I prefer the new trigger, although either version would not have impacted my initial decision to buy two of the guns.

Also, the grip safety appears to protrude a little more on the upgraded gun, and it requires slightly more pressure on the grip safety to depress it. It makes no difference to me.

Anyone notice how much the slide moves to the right and forward when dry firing and trigger reset when looking at the back of the slide? Before I sold mine I noticed it right away and knew it didn't shift that much before I sent it in.

No other striker fired gun I own has the slide shifting that much and I wonder why it's like that since I didn't dig into it any further. Too bad they didn't replace everyone's recoil spring assembly while they where there since it gets beats to hell pretty fast.

Thanks for that report. I haven't had a chance to fire mine more than the quick 36 rounds I put through it immediately upon arrival. I've been real busy this week and it looks like it'll be next week before I get another chance to shoot.

But I've been dry firing it some in the evenings since I cleaned and lubricated it after firing those 36 rounds. The trigger wasn't bad and seems to be smoothing even more with the dry firing. And I agree with you, I can 'stage it' and get a good straight back pull with the sights staying where they should when the striker goes forward. I think it will shoot well.

Unless my eyes are getting worse than ever, I don't notice any slide movement to speak of. When dry firing, the trigger doesn't reset until I manually retract the slide
