04. SPRING­FIELD AR­MORY ADDS 9MM TO THE XD-S MOD.2 LINE

Concealed Carry Hand Guns - - THE ARMORY -

Hav­ing in­tro­duced a Mod.2 ver­sion of the XD-S pis­tol in .45 ACP a few months ear­lier, you knew it was only a mat­ter of time be­fore Spring­field Ar­mory of­fered the up­graded gun in 9mm. It’s here now. Like ear­lier mod­els, the XD-S is a slim sin­gle-stack pis­tol. The grip is less than an inch wide. One of the main fea­tures of the new Mod.2 guns is the re­designed frame that al­lows for a higher grip on the pis­tol, which should be an aid to re­coil con­trol. The grip tex­tur­ing is new, too, and the grip safety has been re­con­fig­ured. New Posi-Wedge slide ser­ra­tions are longer than on pre­vi­ous mod­els. This new Mod.2 gun fea­tures an AmeriGlo Pro-Glo tri­tium front sight and a ser­rated rear sight with tac­ti­cal-rack ca­pa­bil­ity. There’s also a loaded cham­ber in­di­ca­tor that pro­vides both vis­ual and tac­tile con­fir­ma­tion of a loaded cham­ber. Two mag­a­zines are in­cluded: a seven-round mag with pinky ex­ten­sion and a nine-round ex­tended mag. A flush-fit base­plate is in­cluded for the seven-round mag. MSRP: $586 Web­site: www.Spring­field-Ar­mory.com
