Thanks to its XD-S in .45 ACP, Springfield Armory was one of the hottest companies of 2012. The XD-S was so innovative that it went on to be named the American Rifleman Handgun of the Year. When you knock one out of the park like that, there's not a lot that needs changing, and Springfield agreed. So, for 2013, Springfield has rolled out a slightly updated version of the XD-S: except this time it's in 9 mm.

Nearly identical to the .45 ACP version, save for the 9 mm chambering, the XD-S 9 mm provides all the perks of the original design-just with a smaller bore and substantially less recoil than its "big" brother.
