Springfield Armory announced the latest 10 mm-chambered handgun in its lineup in mid-2022 with the addition of the XD-M Elite 4.5" OSP. The new addition builds out the company's collection of 10 mm Auto-chambered guns, which include the full-size Springfield Ronin 1911 and a smaller XD-M Elite Compact OSP designed for concealed carry.

“This newest addition to the XD-M Elite line of pistols gives shooters and outdoor enthusiasts a great option for a powerful and capable defensive pistol,” says Steve Kramer, Vice President of Marketing for Springfield Armory.

With a longer 4.5" slide and barrel and a lengthened frame, the principal benefit of the new XD-M Elite handgun is the increased capacity. The pistol is capable of accepting a 16-round magazine, and two magazines are included with each gun. Like the compact model, the new XD-M Elite 4.5" OSP is outfitted with all the enhancements found in the company's Elite lineup of XD-M pistols, such as the Match Enhanced Trigger Assembly (META), as well as a milled slide cut that accepts Shield RMS-pattern micro red-dots (MRDs). A great set of Springfield's U-Dot sights are included on the gun, and a high-visibility, fiber-optic front sight makes it easy to get on target in daylight.

Accessibility is also a stand-out element of the new XD-M Elite 4.5" OSP handgun, thanks to its ambidextrous controls. The gun also features a generously funneled magazine well that makes it fast and easy to insert fresh magazines. Two models of the new 4.5" handgun are offered, one with a milled slide capable of accepting MRDs and one that includes Springfield's Hex Dragonfly optic. The suggested retail price on the guns is $653 for the optics-ready model and $837 for the optics-included option. For more information on the new gun, visit

I walked into a gun store and saw a pistol that I knew was right for me: a clean, sharp-looking Dan Wesson Model 15 in .357 Mag., with beautiful wood stocks and a 12" barrel that stuck out of a hole cut in the side of the original box.
