Springfield XD-S

Springfield XD-S

The latest addition to Springfield's popular Xtreme Duty (XD) line, the XD-S made its debut at SHOT Show 2012—and left as one of the show's most talked about new products.

Born of a desire to give shooters a compact, easy-to-conceal .45, the XD-S features a slim, single-stack design that's only one-inch in width. Its trigger has a short travel and a short reset to keep you on target, and the snag free sights make it holster friendly. The XD-S also comes with two interchangeable backstraps, letting shooters custom fit their grip, and the picatinny rail is just asking to be given an accessory.

In short, the XD-S delivers everything that has made the XD so popular (and then some) in a smaller package. Oh, and it's still chambered in the most popular defensive caliber of all time. If that's not deserving of a Gun of the Week nod, nothing is.
