SPRING­FIELD XD-S

Concealed Carry Hand Guns - - THE ARMORY -

The XD-S is the sin­gle stack ver­sion of the brand’s pop­u­lar line of XD striker-fired pis­tols, and like its larger cousin, the XD-S comes with a forged steel slide with durable Melonite fin­ish, a poly­mer frame with very ag­gres­sive grip tex­tur­ing, and a set of dove­tailed sights with an ad­justable rear and fiber op­tic front.

And, like the XD, the trim XD-S comes with a grip safety that offers an added layer of pro­tec­tion with this gun be­cause the grip safety pre­vents the trig­ger from break­ing un­less it is de­pressed by the shooter’s hand. The XD-S comes with two mag­a­zines, a flush-fit seven-round mag and the company’s eight-round Mid-Mag X-Ten­sion magazine that offers more grip space for more con­trol when prac­tic­ing at the range.

There are two op­tional bar­rel lengths (3.3 inches and 4 inches) and these guns are avail­able with a black or stain­less slide. The 3.3-inch 9mm mea­sures just 4.4 inches high with the seven-round mag in place, mea­sures 6.3 inches long and weighs 23 ounces with an empty magazine. The trim 0.9-inch slide also makes this gun easy to con­ceal when car­ried on the hip.
