Capacity Never Trumps Reliability
GENESEO, ILL. (8/01/18) – The next generation of the most popular pistol ever produced by Springfield Armory is now available in the most popular caliber with the introduction of the XD-S Mod.2 in 9mm.
Since the release of the XD-S Mod.2 in .45 ACP earlier this year, Springfield Armory has engineered a pistol specifically designed around the 9mm round, resulting in a smaller frame and slimmer profile in this latest version of the XD-S Mod.2. With a frame less than 1-inch wide, the XD-S Mod.2 9mm disappears under even the lightest clothing.
Built on a time-tested platform, the XD-S Mod.2 in 9mm was designed to achieve maximum concealability while maintaining life-saving reliability when you need it most. The XD-S Mod.2 in 9mm survived a grueling 25,000 round torture test without a failure. This is an amazing testament to the quality of the pistol especially when considering its small size.
The XD-S Mod.2 in 9mm features upgrades chosen to perfect the pistol for concealed carry. An AmeriGlo™ Pro-Glo tritium front sight makes target acquisition quick and accurate, while the tactical-rack serrated rear sight provides the added benefit of being able to rack the slide against available surfaces such as a belt, doorway, boot etc. should it become necessary to cycle the gun one-handed. A model is also available with a fiber optic front sight and tactical-rack serrated white dot rear sight. The enhanced grip texturing allows for a secure yet comfortable grip, wet or dry, and the new, longer Posi-Wedge slide serrations make the slide easier to grab and operate. A loaded chamber indicator allows shooters to not only see the condition of the gun, but to feel the condition of the gun when it’s placed in a holster, or in darkness and low-light. A newly designed grip safety immediately readies the gun to fire when gripped, but keeps the gun safe from firing during appendix or off-body carry. An additional drop safety in the striker block, in conjunction with the grip safety, prevents the gun from firing if dropped.
The XD-S Mod.2 frame positions a shooter’s grip higher on the gun, closer to the bore axis, for better recoil control and accuracy. Coupled with the dual captive recoil spring and full length guide rod, the XD-S Mod.2 in 9mm is soft shooting and well-balanced. An enhanced short reset trigger makes for fast, controllable follow up shots.
The XD-S Mod.2 ships with two stainless steel magazines: a 7-round mag with a pinkie rest and additional flush floor plate for carry and one 9-round extended magazine – perfect for home defense. An 8-round extended magazine is also available for purchase.
For those looking for a trusted every day carry handgun, the Springfield Armory XD-S platform is consistently amongst the most popular and widely-chosen carry guns on the market. The XD-S Mod.2 in 9mm will provide superior reliability, safety, and concealability when you need it most.
About Springfield Armory®

The Armory functioned as a firearms supplier for every major American conflict until 1968 when the government sadly closed its doors. In 1974, two centuries after its inception, Springfield Armory Inc. in Geneseo, IL revived the iconic heritage of the Armory to carry on its legacy and restore the Springfield Armory name.
