    My XDS .45 was part of the recall fiasco.... I have been without it for 60 days.. Now carrying my Bersa .380 or Cz p07.... After a few have posted that they are not pleased with the returned product from Springfield I am seriously considering a glock 26 as a replacement EDC. And yes I do know they are different calibers. Any thoughts?

    I also agree W/JW and here is why. The gun will not feel Any Different in you hand EXCEPT for your trigger. You will either like it or you won't. I returned an M9 back to the armory twice for a #%+¥ A** trigger. On the third time I went to the Armory NCO and the Warrant and dumped the gun on the desk and stood there with my hands in my pockets......until I got one with a Trigger that worked.

    As others have said, wait until you get it back, then decide. Mine came back with a slightly heavier trigger, but not enough difference to bother me, and it shot just as good as it always did. Saying that, I did trade mine off for a Glock 26, but I was planning on doing that prior to the recall anyway (started with a G26, traded for XDs.45, traded for XDs9, then back to the G26). Nothing against the XDs, I just missed my Glock.

    So the trigger is coming back screwed up??

    This happens every time after a recall. "It just doesn't feel the same". In this case the recall was largely preventive. This is a 100% self defense CCW. Whether a 6 lbs trigger is worse than a 5 lbs one is debatable. In any case a moot point for this kind of pistol. It will still be a top choice for a flat side CCW. Only Kahr I think can get this thin among the 45ACP semiautos.

    Remember news stories every now and then how a "suspicious" substance made a bunch of people sick, and then turned out to be baking soda? Recall does that sometimes.

    I carry the G26 everywhere. On the side in the winter and mid back in the summer. I know it will always work with Critical Defense 124gr hp's.

    I agree. Mine has been gone long enough that I really wont know the difference in trigger pull anyway , so it really not a big deal to me . just looking forward to having it back before Christmas . I kept mine for a while but still sent it in soon enough to get in on the second batch or returns . I have no intention of unloading it for another firearm unless they have changed something that Im not comfortable with

I'm hearing they are all coming back with a extended mag in them for your trouble

    I just shot my G26 side by side with the XD9, and I must admit the XD9 felt really nice, but I'll stick with the smaller, lighter G26.

    Sounds like a good excuse for me to get a G26. Don't have one and all I need is a reason.

    XDs .45 came back today.... Have not fired it yet... Trigger seems the same as before.. Came back clean and with complimentary extra mag. Three months away so I need to become familiar with her again.

    As long as you see a roll pin on the grip safety near the frame, then it's g2g.

    Mine came back today. Trigger is just a little bit stiffer but the travel is still smooth with no gritty feeling whatsoever. I'm very pleased with how Springfield handled this whole interaction, yeah it took them a little while to get it returned bit so what? They threw in a mag and none of this cost me a penny.
