XD(M) Compact 3.8" .45 ACP

posted on November 9, 2011

Requests have been pouring in, and now the XD(M)® 3.8 Compact is available in .45ACP.

Since we introduced the XD(M)® Compact in 9mm and .40, our Customer Service department has been swamped with requests for a .45 version. So, we've been frantically developing an amazing product that combines concealability and high capacity, with a big bullet, that, like all XD® and XD(M)® modelsfocuses on Point & Shoot Ergonomics™.

The genius of the XD(M)® Compact design is that it doubles as a full-size frame model with the use of the XD(M) Gear® Mag X-Tension™ (US Pat. 7191556) that offers a full-capacity back-up magazine. It's also a great range option for people that don't want to have to buy both a CCW, and a range pistol.
