NEW! Springfield Armory XD-S Pistol with Crimson Trace Laserguard

posted on January 14, 2016

Springfield Armory has teamed with Crimson Trace to equip the XD-S pistol with a Laserguard, which eliminates the need to fumble for switches or controls during high-stress situations. The XD-S 3.3” Single Stack Crimson Trace model is offered in 9 mm (seven rounds) and .45 ACP (five rounds).

“Our goal with the XD-S product line has always been to make it the perfect concealed-carry pistol,” says Dennis Reese, Springfield Armory CEO. “Now, through our work with Crimson Trace, we’re adding faster and more reliable target-sighting capability.” 

The integrated package remains small and light, consistent with the design goals of the XD-S. Constructed of a matching polymer, the Laserguard adds only one oz. of weight over the standard 9 mm XD-S, weighing in at 23 ozs. 

For traditional sighting in daylight conditions, the XD-S Crimson Trace model includes the same fiber-optic front sight and low profile combat rear sight that are on the original XD-S models. As slender as the original XD-S, it features a 3.3” hammer-forged barrel, forged steel slide with Melonite treatment, and interchangeable backstraps. It comes with two magazines, while the Mid Mag adds one extra round to each caliber.
