Introducing the Springfield XD(m) 3.8 .45 ACP

One of Springfield's most popular handguns is getting an upgrade -- check that, make it two upgrades.


The Springfield Armory XD(M) 3.8 Compact is now available in .45 ACP, the company announced Monday, and by using a Mag X-Tension, the new model offers the owner the choice of a 9+1 carry gun weighing just 27 ounces with a height of 4.55 inches, or a 13+1 pistol.



With the X-Tension attached, the gun weighs 29 ounces, with OAL measuring seven inches in both configurations.

The gun comes with both the 9- and 13-round magazines, along with the X-Tension. Along with a fully ramped, Melonite-finished barrel and three-dot steel sights, the polymer frame gun is available with forged steel black slide for $732. The stainless slide and black frame model is available for $797.


The gun also comes with a carrying case, two stainless Megazines, mag loader, double mag pouch, three backstraps and three X-Tensions.
