SHOT Show 2018: Springfield Armory XD-S Mod.2

posted on January 21, 2018

Springfield Armory brought the Mod.2 enhancements to its popular XD-S single-stack concealed-carry pistol for 2018, giving personal-defense-minded citizens a redesigned option in the company’s lineup that incorporates a thinner slide with more aggressive serrations for a more-solid grip.

One other notable feature on the new XD-S Mod.2 is the disappearance of the company’s branded GripZone ergonomics, though the gun still benefits from the telltale ergonomics pioneered by Springfield’s GripZone initiative.

For all the details on the new Springfield Armory XD-S Mod.2, take a look at our range video above.
