What’s broken inside the XDs?

Has anybody been able to find anything that explains exactly what parts are being replaced inside the XDs pistols?

I’ve heard that the grip safety is being replaced, and that the new one has a roll pin in it, and that’s about it. I’ve spent a couple hours digging through forum threads and doing Google searches, and I still don’t understand exactly what is happening inside the pistol that is causing it to double fire, or fire when the slide drops.

Do me a favor, if you find any resources about this, post them in the comments section below. I’m itching to find it what exactly is going on with this pistol…

  1. They might be replacing firing pin retention pins or something like that I heard there was a problem in the past with them? not sure

  2. I wonder if they would consider making a pistol without the grip safety. Would make it cheaper. I could take it or leave it.

  3. Scroll to the bottom: http://springfieldrecall.com/Recall%20FAQ.asp Still vague, but at least it’s something.
