Springfield Armory has announced a new addition to its striker-fired handgun lineup, with the OD Green XD-M Elite 4.5" OSP 10 mm. This is an exclusive variant, which will only be available for purchase through Sportsman's Warehouse. Similar to other variants of the XD-M Elite lineup, the 4.5" OSP 10 mm has a match-grade steel barrel treated with a Melonite finish. Being an Optical Sight Pistol (OSP), its forged-steel slide features a removable seamless cover plate which protects a pre-cut mounting point for micro red-dot optics, as well as a set of the company's Tactical Rack U-Dot iron sights. 

The slide also features aggressive serrations on the front and back portions for added grip when racking. As a part of this exclusive package, the slide also wears a finish of H232 Magpul OD Green Cerakote. The black polymer frame includes interchangeable backstraps, with different sized inserts to accommodate hand sizing. To assist with reloads, the frame also sports a removable flared magwell attachment to help guide in its 16-round, double-stack magazines, of which two are included with each pistol. 

For controls, the OD Green XD-M Elite 4.5" OSP 10 mm includes bilateral magazine release buttons and slide catch levers, as well as the Match Enhanced Trigger Assembly (META) which features a flat-faced shoe and integrated overtravel stop. As mentioned by Springfield's Vice President of marketing, Steve Kramer: "This newest XD-M Elite gives both shooters and outdoor enthusiasts a powerful pistol that will definitely stand out from the crowd." It has a suggested retail price of $675. To learn more about the Sportsman's exclusive OD Green XD-M Elite 4.5" OSP 10 mm, visit
