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.
