Springfield Armory XD Mod. 2 Sub-Compact Now in .45 ACP

Springfield Armory XD Mod. 2 Sub-Compact Now in .45 ACP

Springfield Armory has introduced a new version of its XD Mod. 2 chambered in .45 ACP at the 2015 SHOT Show.

The new XD Mod. 2 in .45 ACP shares many of the same features as the XD Mod. 2s in 9mm and .40 S&W, but it utilizes a captive recoil spring with a full-length guide rod instead of the dual spring to accommodate the bigger cartridge. The .45 ACP XD Mod. 2 also sports a slightly longer 3.3-inch hammer forged barrel, resulting in a 6.5-inch overall length. The grip width is a touch wider at 1.20 inches, while the height remains the same at 4.75 inches with the standard magazine and 5.5 inches with the X-Tension extended magazine.

As with previous XD Mod. 2 pistols, this version incorporates the same innovative and ergonomic "Grip Zone" technology, in which three different textures are molded into the grip where slip resistance is most important. Critical gripping points receive a more heavily textured pattern while other areas have a smoother feel.


Like the 9mm and .40 S&W XD Mod. 2, the new model in .45 ACP features posi-wedge slide serrations that aids the user in racking the slide, especially useful given the .45's captive recoil spring. The XD Mod.2 in .45 ACP also utilizes the same low-profile rear combat sight and fiber optic front sight.


The new Springfield XD Mod. 2 in .45 ACP is available in all-black or stainless steel bi-tone color options. The all-black version is available for $593 and the bi-tone version runs $629.
