GENESEO, ILL. (05/25/22) – Springfield Armory® is proud to announce the newest addition to the popular XD-M® Elite series — the XD-M® Elite 4.5″ OSP™ 10mm. This highly capable 10mm, like all the XD-M Elites, redefines what you should expect from a modern, striker-fired firearm.
The XD-M Elite 4.5″ OSP 10mm combines impressive capacity with powerful performance. The 4.5″ match grade Melonite® finished barrel maximizes ballistic performance, and the highly ergonomic frame houses a double-column stainless steel magazine that provides a 16-round capacity in the two included magazines.
As an Optical Sight Pistol (OSP), the new XD-M Elite 4.5″ 10mm features a removable seamless cover plate that reveals a mounting interface for the optic of your choice, such as the HEX™ Dragonfly™ red dot or a wide range of other popular red dot optics through the use of available mounting plates. The pistol is also offered packaged with a HEX Dragonfly.
To facilitate quick reloads, the XD-M Elite 4.5″ OSP 10mm also features a removable extended and flared “short” magwell. While compact and unobtrusive, the magwell speeds rapid reloads of the 16-round magazines. The magazines themselves feature slightly extended baseplates to provide the impressive 16+1 capacity of the 10mm pistol and match up nicely with the short magwell.
At the heart of the pistol is the Match Enhanced Trigger Assembly (META™) system, a superbly refined trigger designed to wring out the most from the pistol’s most important interface with the shooter. Featuring a flat face and integral overtravel stop, the META system delivers the finest trigger pull available on a production polymer-framed pistol.
The XD-M® Elite 4.5″ OSP 10mm includes an ambidextrous slide stop and magazine release, ensuring that it can be run easily by either hand. Additionally, improved slide serrations with enlarged grasping grooves provide enhanced ergonomics and slip-free purchase. Topping off its forged steel slide is Springfield Armory’s excellent Tactical Rack U-Dot™ rear sight. It features a u-shaped white outline and works in concert with the high-visibility fiber optic front sight.
“This newest addition to the XD-M Elite line of pistols gives shooters and outdoor enthusiasts a great option for a powerful and capable defensive pistol,” says Steve Kramer, Vice President of Marketing for Springfield Armory. “Features like its optics capability, fully ambidextrous controls and a funneled, removable magwell make the XD-M® Elite 4.5″ OSP 10mm ideal for anyone serious about self-defense.”
If you need a capable and powerful 10mm pistol that combines ultra-refined performance with impressive power and capacity, then look no further than the new XD-M® Elite 4.5″ OSP 10mm. MSRP of the pistol is $653. MSRP for the pistol packaged with the HEX Dragonfly red dot optic is $837.
