Springfield Armory XD-S Mod 2 Makes It to 9mm
The Springfield Armory XD-S Mod 2 premiered earlier this year to a lot of applause and appreciation. The original XD-S Mod 2 hit the market in 45 ACP only. This single chambering left a lot of Springfield fans scratching their heads. Sure 45 ACP is, and there isn’t a ton of subcompact guns out there in that caliber, but 9mm is the bell of the ball for CCWs. Springfield Armory seems to have caught on to that and introduced the XD-S Mod 2 in 9mm.
The Springfield XD-S Mod 2 is a subcompact, single stack handgun designed for concealed carry. The XD-S Mod 2 is a striker fired gun that comes outfitted with a Picatinny rail and grip safety. The XD-S Mod 2 in 9mm has several available models that give potential customers a choice of tritium sights, fiber optic sights, or a model with optic sights and a Viridian laser. The fiber optic sights are made by AmeriGlo and are metal. The rear sight is the tactical-rack serrated rear sight that can be used to rack the weapon off of your belt or a solid surface.
Speaking of choices Springfield has options for three different magazine capacities that includes a 7 round flush fitting magazine, as well as an extended 8 and 9 round options. The gun will come with a 7 round magazine and a 9 round magazine.
The good news is that Springfield didn’t take the 45 ACP XD-S Mod 2 and change it to 9mm. They went back and had the frame redesigned to take advantage of the smaller 9mm round. This ground-up build philosophy made the frame smaller, and therefore more comfortable to carry and easier to conceal. The dimensions are impressive if you want to go small. It’s less than an inch wide, weighs only 21.5 ounces, and is only 6.3 inches long.
It seems to be a robust design and well suited for concealed carry. The Sprinfield XD-S Mod 2 models will be in gun stores soon.
The MSRP for the different XD-S Mod 2 models is as follows.
XD-S Mod.2 9mm w/ Fiber Optic
XD-S Mod.2 9mm w/ Tritium
XD-S Mod.2 9m w/ Viridian Red Laser
