The next evolution of the acclaimed XD-S pistol is here. 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, available with an Ameriglo® Pro-Glo™ front sight (XDSG93345BT) 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.
