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

The XD-S 9 mm is almost completely unchanged from the .45 ACP version. Its size, barrel length and width are identical. The weight difference is negligible when unloaded. All told, it's the same gun, just in a smaller bore. If you didn't fancy carrying a gun that size in .45 ACP, you're being offered a second chance to choose Springfield.

Get the full scoop on the new XD-S from veteran shooter Rob Leatham in the video below.

Technical Specifications:

Caliber: 9 mm
