Springfield Armory recently introduced the new XD-M® Elite 3.8-inch Compact OSP 10 mm, which combines the powerful ballistics of the 10 mm with an optics-ready carry gun platform. 

The pistol features 11+1 rounds of the popular 10 mm round and fully ambidextrous controls. It also showcases the META trigger, removable short flared magwell, and hard-hitting performance in a capable CCW-sized package. With its extended magwell removed, the pistol can also accept full-size 15-round magazines with backstrap-compatible grip sleeves.

The 10 mm chambering of the new pistol offers magnum-type performance in a compact semi-auto package. Delivering flat trajectories and impressive velocity, the 10 mm makes for a capable carry pistol with remarkable ballistic capabilities.

Because it is an OSP variant (Optical Sight Pistol), it can accept the red-dot optic of your choice using available interchangeable optics 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 is $633, while the pistol packed with the HEX Dragonfly red-dot optic has an MSRP of $818.

“The new XD-M Elite 3.8-inch Compact OSP 10 mm stands apart in the CCW world with its combination of impressive power, compact size and optics-mounting capability,” says Steve Kramer, Vice President of Marketing for Springfield Armory. “Additionally, with its 11+1 capacity and the ability to accept full-size 15-round magazines available as an accessory, this is an outstanding choice for EDC and self-defense use.”

If you need a capable and powerful 10 mm pistol that combines exceptional performance with concealable dimensions, look no further than the new XD-M Elite 3.8-inch Compact OSP 10 mm.

Why Lightweight Carbines Are a Game Changer

Technology and demand are driving a light-rifle trend that shows no signs of slowing down. Purpose-built, flyweight guns are a dream to carry and shoot, but the additional machining, exotic materials and manufacturing methods that can bring something like an AR rifle down to 4.5 pounds make it expensive.
