Springfield Armory Announces Updated XD-S Mod.2 in .45 ACP

Springfield Armory Announced the new XD-S Mod.2 .45 ACP

Springfield Armory rolled out the first XD-S in big boy .45 ACP back in 2012. The single stack 3.3″ barreled concealed carry pistol — with 9mm and .40 S&W versions added later — has been a hit for the Illinois gun maker ever since.

Now Springfield has given the the XD-S a fluff and buff, slimming down the slide, lowering the bore axis and making the rear sight rackable. They’re offering three models with your choice of standard sights, Ameriglo tritium or a Viridian laser. Here’s their press release . . .

GENESEO, ILL. (01/15/18) – 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 firearm, closer to the bore axis, to enhance control, and softens recoil for improved accuracy. This Mod.2 improvement, coupled with the thinner beavertail, makes this lightweight pistol even more comfortable to shoot than its predecessor.

The width of the grip is a mere .975”, and the enhanced grip texturing gives the operator a solid feel and secure hold of the pistol – especially important in defensive encounters. Longer Posi- Wedge™ serrations make the slide easier to grab and rack.

The new XD-S Mod.2 features an SA front sight with Ameriglo®’s Pro-Glo™ green tritium inside a yellow luminescent circle, paired with an SA tactical-rack serrated steel rear sight with U- notch, making target acquisition extremely fast in low-light. The enhanced short-reset and consistent trigger is the perfect choice for a defensive carry pistol.

Chambered in .45ACP, this latest edition of Springfield’s most popular pistol is engineered for a slim, single-stack frame just 6.5 inches long and under 5 inches high – ideal for the invisible fit and easy draw required of a concealed-carry pistol. The 3.3-inch barrel is Melonite® treated hammer-forged steel, with a 1:16 twist for outstanding accuracy in a sub-compact size. Dual springs and a full-length guide rod manage .45 recoil and help keep rounds on target without punishing the shooter’s hands.

The XD-S Mod.2 comes with two stainless steel magazines: a flush-fitting 5-round mag, and one 6-round mag with Mid-Mag X-Tension™. These magazines, unloaded and seated in the pistol, give the XD-S Mod.2 a weight of 21.5 ounces and 22.5 ounces, respectively. The single-stack magazines provide ample capacity in a remarkably slim design, giving the XD-S Mod.2 the ideal profile for concealed carry purposes.

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.

        Thanks! NO OTHER firearms reporter HAS EVEN given the slightest care on addressing what went down. Besides, my pistols didn’t issue a press release. I know about supporting or boycotting someone because of their beliefs, but if a product is good, and safe, I’m not going to throw it in the trash just because what someone said, not relating to said product.If someone can post a link telling me why I should get rid of all my S.A. firearms, I shall at least read it, & make my own judgement. As to anyone recomending them to new buyers, I make MY OWN DECISIONS on what I will purchase, AND continue to read the Firearms Rack because they don’t try to push what they like for some monetary reason (read: politics).
