SHOT Show 2020: Springfield Armory XD-M Elite

by
posted on January 19, 2020
Models offered in the Springfield Armory XD lineup are some of the most-popular handguns sold in America, and the company enhanced its offerings in 2020 with the launch of its all-new XD-M Elite collection.

Though it retains many of the characteristics that made the XD lineup popular with consumers, the Springfield Armory XD-M Elite lineup of handguns brings a few new elements to the gun. The first is an enhanced trigger unit that provides a crisp, clean pull that's one of the best found in a polymer-frame pistol today. Other features include a U-notch sight arrangement that aids in drawing a shooter's eye to the front sight.

Other features found on the Springfield Armory XD-M Elite lineup include enhanced serrations at the front and rear of the slide, as well as improved magazine wells that create a generous funnel for fast, trouble-free reloads. The guns are also available with expanded magazines, and differentiations between the four models offered ensure that shooters can choose the configuration that best fits their needs.

For all the details on the Springfield Armory XD-M Elite lineup, watch the American Rifleman First Look video above.
