Springfield has unveiled an upgraded XD-S Mod.2, a single-stack .45 ACP designed for concealed carry.
In a press release Springfield said,
The next evolution of the acclaimed XD-S pistol is here. The latest edition of Springfield’s most popular pistol is engineered in a slim, single-stack frame, holding 6 rounds of .45 ACP in a premiere concealed-carry firearm.
Springfield Armory’s XD-S Mod.2 offers upgrades from the inside out. A higher hand position, enhanced grip texturing, thinner slide, an SA front sight with Ameriglo®’s Pro-Glo system and SA tactical-rack rear sight, and an enhanced trigger advance this polymer-framed pistol’s acclaimed Point and Shoot Ergonomics™. Other features include a loaded chamber indicator and a grip safety that immediately readies the gun for action, while the drop safety in the striker block renders it virtually incapable of firing if dropped.
The XD-S Mod.2 frame moves the shooter’s grip higher on the weapon, closer to the bore axis, to enhance control, soften recoil and improve accuracy. This Mod.2 improvement, coupled with the thinner extended beaver tail, makes this lightweight pistol even more comfortable to shoot than its predeccesor.
For those looking for a constant-carry pistol, the new XD-S Mod.2 is the perfect choice. It embodies everything Springfield Armory stands for: constant improvement, high-quality, and a relentless commitment to one goal – forging firearms that enable responsible citizens to preserve their right to keep and bear arms in the defense of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
The XD-S Mod.2 comes standard with a 5-round flush fitting magazine and a 6-round Mid-Mag X-Tension magazine, both stainless steel. It has a 3.3″ barrel, 6.5″ overall length, and a height under 5″.
