The powerful XD-M Elite 3.8-inch Compact OSP.45 ACP pistol packs in 10+1 rounds of the proven .45 ACP. Featuring fully ambidextrous controls, the excellent META trigger, removable short flared magwell and much more, this new XD-M Elite harnesses fight-stopping performance in an extremely capable CCW-sized package.

In addition, the fact it is an OSP variant (which stands for “Optical Sight Pistol”) means it can accept the red dot optic of your choice using available interchangeable optic-mounting plates. Additionally, the pistol is available from the factory packaged with a HEX Dragonfly 3.5 MOA red dot optic. MSRP on the pistol alone is $653, while the pistol packed with the HEX Dragonfly has an MSRP of $843.

“The XD-M Elite family has proven itself through its combination of rugged reliability and top-tier performance,” says Steve Kramer, Vice President of Marketing for Springfield Armory. “And now with the XD-M Elite 3.8-inch Compact OSP in .45, shooters have a powerful CCW pistol that is ready for everyday carry duty.”

If you need a compact and powerful big-bore pistol that combines exceptional performance with concealable dimensions, look no further than the new XD-M Elite 3.8-inch Compact OSP .45.
