GENESEO, ILL. (12/13/21) – Springfield Armory is proud to announce the release of the new XD-M® Elite 3.8″ Compact OSP™ in .45 ACP. It combines big-bore power with cutting-edge performance to provide concealed carry users with an extraordinary defensive pistol option.

The compact and powerful 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″ Compact OSP™ in .45, shooters have a powerful CCW pistol that is ready for every day carry duty.”
