The Springfield Armory XD Mod.2Subcompact line is now available in Flat Dark Earth (FDE), topped with a black Melonite slide, chambered in 9 mm, .40 S&W, or .45 ACP chamberings.
“We are excited to offer this model in flat dark earth,” says Dennis Reese, Springfield Armory CEO. “One of the benefits of the polymer frame XD Mod.2 design is that we can create customized models to suit specific customer preferences.”
The Mod.2 was originally designed to make shooting faster and more accurate, hence the High-Hand cutouts on the back of the grip and behind the trigger, which allow the user to put support high near the bore line to minimize muzzle flip. Carefully shaped thumb depressions provide maximum hand-to-frame contact. The new Grip Zone with three different textures provides maximum comfortable purchase. The new FDE models feature hammer-forged and Melonite-treated barrels, as are the slides.
All XD Mod.2 Sub-ompact models include both a flush fit and patented X-Tension magazine. The 9 mm sub-compact magazines pack 13/16 rounds respectively while the .40 S&W fits 9/12, and the .45 ACP carries 9/13 rounds.
