Concealed carry is all about, well… being able to conceal the firearm. Springfield is looking to take this concept to a new level with the introduction of the Mod.2 .45ACP Sub-Compact. Chambered in .45 ACP, the Mod.2 is far from a pea-shooting caliber. Best of all, the bite power pack features a 9+1 capacity 13+1 rounds with an X-Tension magazine.
Features making the Mod.2 .45ACP Sub-Compact ideal for concealed carry include high visibility low-profile sights, slim-contour frame and extraordinary capacity. The stainless steel frame and slide tapes out a mere .2-inch wider than the slimmest polymer competitor. The Mod.2 utilizes a 3.3-inch barrel making it suitable for IWB, Appendix or just about anywhere, you want to stash it.
Like all XDs, the Mod.2 .45ACP Sub-Compact is no exception and comes stacked with safety features. The striker status indicator, loaded chamber indicator, grip-safety, internal firing pin block, and the Ultra Safety Assurance (USA) Action Trigger System all work to make the XD Mod.2 .45ACP Sub-Compact a safe and easy to use pistol. The pistol has potential to be California compliant in the future for those on the left coast as well.
New to the XD Mod.2 .45ACP is Springfield’s GripZone ergonomics. The GripZone optimizes the fit between your hand and the frame. The enhanced grip makes making follow-up shots faster and potentially more accurate.
