Fear & Loading: Springfield Armory All XD Gear Up Promotion

posted on October 3, 2018

Purchase any new XD model from the Springfield Armory lineup from Oct. 1 to the end of 2018 and you qualify to receive three additional magazines and a Springfield Armory range bag. Buyers are also eligible to upgrade their Gear Up package with an exclusive offer from SureFire and Kershaw.

Simply mail in the promotion form and proof of purchase to receive the bonus gear, or for faster service the redemption process can be initiated at AllXDGearUp.com. When redeeming the Gear Up promotion online, new owners will also have a one-time opportunity to—courtesy of Surefire and Kershaw—take home a Surefire 6PX Tactical Flashlight, Kershaw knife and carabiner for only $99, a retail value of $200. Those who buy during the qualifying dates have until Jan. 31, 2019, to take advantage of both offers.

The promotion is the first of its kind for Springfield Armory in that the entire XD family qualifies. That includes the 9 mm XD-S Mod.2 Pistol American Rifleman recently put through the paces, the XD-Es introduced during the NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits and even the company’s newly released XD(M) OSP with threaded barrel.

Since 2001, Springfield Armory has enjoyed a strategic, collaborative partnership with a state-of-the-art factory in Croatia, working hand-in-hand to develop and engineer the multiple award-winning line of XD polymer pistols that’ve become a staple in the U.S. marketplace. The company, however, continues to engineer, manufacture and assemble its high-quality 1911, 911, Saint AR-15 and legendary M1A lines of firearms in Geneseo, Ill.

Certain limits apply to the Gear Up promotion. Visit your nearest authorized Springfield Armory dealer or the website for full details.
