I have an XDE in 9mm, bought it one yr ago this month. It’s been a great gun except for the pin that holds the trigger in kept moving out when shooting it. It now resides at the factory. Haven’t heard anything, it’s been a week and they said 2-4 wks., why? Very long time for a pin.

Most likely the Springfield armory people are communicating with Croatia so they can come up with a permanent solution.
It might be a short wait or long. Just give them a call with your repair number ready so you can stay in contact with them.

I called them today and no info on my gun. Are they that busy or just disorganized? I also found that it’s only been there almost a week so I need to be patient.

The answer is yes.

I don’t know if you know this or not but in early 2017 they along with rock river arms got caught giving over half a million dollars to anti- gun politicians in their state and crafting a anti gun bill that would

  1. limit the citizens rights it own certain firearms.
  2. Make it harder for the competition (other gun manufacturers) to build firearms in their state (Illinois).
  3. Make themselves the only company except from the new laws in the bill.

Here is their apology video.

I don’t buy an inch of it. If you are the president of a company it’s your responsibility to know what’s going on and where over half s million dollars is going.

Yes I’m sure that they are super busy, and dotting every i and Crossing every T.

I did find this out after I bought the gun. I usually don’t buy from companies that get involved with political moves that benefit themselves only and not for the good of us gun owners. Unfortunately I like the gun and they do make others as good. I would say maybe they heard us and will be more mindful of what’s right. I think that Sig may have fallen into the same trap with the P320 and the U.S. Army. I think that was stacked against Glock and others.

I agree with you 100 percent On this Brother.

It does suck about Springfield armory. I really do like the XD pistol.

Not to worry Brother. I have used exxon oil. I didn’t shoot my yeti cooler. I didn’t burn my Nikes. I didn’t sell off my Springfield armory pistol. Now having said that I also believe that I will not be purchasing anything from these companies in the future either. Just my two cents.

I won’t buy new from Springfield (or Rock River) but would buy used if something caught my eye. Sad that they pulled that stunt in their home state. I enjoy my XD. Have used it in competitions and it did well. Also enjoy my M1A and probably will buy a scout model one of these days if I ever see one local on consignment.
