About the Springfield Armory® XD-S® Series:

Originally introduced in 2012, the XD-S® series is the first and only single-stack XD® from Springfield Armory®.  In addition to the inherently slim nature of the design, the frame is a short sub-compact style with the barrel measuring just 3.3 or 4.0 inches. The pistols are available in 9mm and .45ACP variants.

Critical accolades of the XD-S® Pistol Series include:

  • Ladies Choice Awards 2015 (XD-S® 9mm)
  • American Rifleman’s 2013 Pistol of the Year Honors (XD-S® .45ACP)

XD- S® pistol features include interchangeable backstraps, an accessory rail, and fiber optic front sights along with the same exact grip angle of a 1911 pistol.
