Springfield Armory® is pleased to announce that the hammer fired XD-E pistol, already available in 3.3”, is now available with a longer 4.5” barrel.
The XD-E takes the best elements of the Springfield Armory XD series and combines them into a double action-single action (DA/SA) pistol that’s perfect for concealed carry.
Combining the XD’s 1911 style grip angle into a sleek frame measuring just an inch wide, the slim profile is a comfortable fit that is ideal for everyday carry. The design features a Low-Effort-Slide that requires 27% less effort to cycle the slide when compared to leading striker-fired pistols in its category. The exposed hammer is also an excellent feature that adds peace of mind by clearly showing the mode of carry the firearm is in. The XD-E can be carried “cocked and locked” with the safety on, or with the hammer down and the safety on or off. The fully ambidextrous, dual manual safety and de-cocking system allows the user to safely lower the hammer without pulling the trigger.
The first double-action shot requires an intentional, longer and deliberate trigger pull for increased safety while carrying and drawing. After the first shot, the XD-E reverts to single-action operation, giving the operator a much lighter and crisper trigger break. The result is improved accuracy and faster, more controllable follow-up shots.
The Mod.2 grip texturing provides a secure fit in your hands, wet or dry.
