Springfield Armory is proud to announce the release of new XD OSP (Optical Sight Pistol) Slide Kit and Assembly options for the original XD line of full-size pistols. The 4-inch 9mm kit and assemblies provide original XD owners OSP capabilities as well as the ability to convert certain XD models to a full-size 4-inch 9mm configuration. The slides, featuring included cover plates, are cut to accept XD-M OSP optics mounting plates available for a wide range of popular optics.

First up is the XD OSP Slide Kit (part number XD4902), a package that provides users with a complete OSP-cut, full-size XD slide assembly packaged with a recoil spring assembly, barrel and an optics mounting plate in the Springfield Micro footprint. This plate accepts optics like the Shield SMSc and allows for co-witnessing with the iron sights. MSRP is $396. With this XD OSP Slide Kit, you can convert several XD variants to a full-size 4-inch 9mm configuration featuring OSP capabilities. The kit converts the following:

  • XD 5-inch 9mm to XD 4-inch OSP 9mm
  • XD 4-inch .40 to XD 4-inch OSP 9mm (with purchase of 9mm magazine)
  • XD 5-inch .40 to XD 4-inch OSP 9mm (with purchase of 9mm magazine)

Also available is the XD OSP Slide Assembly (part number XD4901), which includes an OSP-cut slide assembly for an XD 4-inch 9mm pistol along with a Springfield Micro footprint optics-mounting plate. It is designed to convert an XD 4-inch 9mm to an XD 4-inch 9mm OSP, while utilizing the original pistol’s barrel and recoil spring system. With this assembly, you can easily swap out the slide on your 4-inch 9mm pistol to gain OSP optics-mounting capabilities. MSRP for the XD OSP Slide Assembly is $270. Also available is an XD OSP Slide Assembly packaged with a Crimson Trace CTS-1500 red dot optic and optic mounting plate (part number XD4903). MSRP for that package is $369. Both XD OSP Slide Assembly offerings convert the following:

  • XD 4-inch 9mm to XD 4-inch OSP 9mm

“With these new XD 4-inch 9mm OSP Slide Kit and Slide Assembly conversion systems, Springfield Armory is providing owners of this rugged and proven pistol a means to update their handgun for the use of modern red dot optics,” says Steve Kramer, Vice President of Marketing for Springfield Armory. “In addition, the XD OSP Slide Assembly option allows you to convert other full-size 9mm and .40-cal. variants of the XD into the 4-inch-barreled 9mm configuration with optics capabilities.”
