Springfield Armory’s XD-S Mod.2, Return of the GripZone!

The next evolution of the acclaimed XD-S pistol is here. (and isn’t a blatant Sig clone)

The latest edition of Springfield’s most popular pistol is engineered in a slim, single-stack frame, holding 6 rounds of .45 ACP and offers upgrades from the inside out. The XD-S Mod.2 features a higher hand position, enhanced grip texturing, thinner slide, an Ameriglo® Pro-Glo™ front sight with tactical-rack rear sight, and an enhanced trigger that advance this polymer-framed pistol’s acclaimed “point and shoot” ergonomics. Other features include a loaded chamber indicator and a grip safety that immediately readies the gun for action yet renders it virtually incapable of firing if dropped.

The width of the grip is a mere .975”, and the Mod.2 grip texturing gives the operator a solid feel and secure hold of the pistol – especially important in defensive encounters. Longer Posi-Wedge™ serrations make the slide easier to grab and rack. The enhanced short-reset and consistent trigger is the perfect choice for a defensive carry pistol.
