First Look: Springfield Armory 9mm XD-S 4.0"
January 13, 2014
The Springfield Armory 9mm XD-S 4.0" was announced at the 2014 SHOT Show as the newest addition to Springfield's line of XD-S pistols.
The 4.0" includes all the features we've become familiar with in the original XD-S 3.3" platformâ€”the only major difference being a 4-inch barrel, compared to the 3.3-inch found on other XD-S pistols.
Initially offered in 9mm, the 4.0" uses the same 7- and 9-round magazines as the 3.3" models. It also uses the same ambidextrous magazine release, accessory rail, fiber optic front sight and interchangeable backstraps as the original XD-S.
The new 4.0" comes outfitted with Springfield's post-recall grip safety upgrade, which includes a visible roll pin in the grip safety assembly.
Available in early 2014, the 9mm XD-S 4.0" comes packed in a hard plastic carrying case with a 7- and 9-round magazine, paddle holster and magazine pouch, additional backstrap and fiber optic sight inserts and an action lock.
The 9mm XD-S 4.0" with black melonite finish comes to market at $599.
