M1A, XD-S 3.3″ now offered in FDE

    Springfield Armory has just announced that their M1A Loaded precision adjustable stocks and XD-S 3.3″ 9mm ¬†are now being offered in Flat Dark Earth as a stock option. The XD-S retained the black back straps, while the M1A stocks retain some of the moving pieces in black. Springfield Armory offered FDE in their traditional polymer stocks, but this is a first for their Precision Adjustable ones. Also the XD-S option seems to only be for the 3.3″ barrel, nothing yet on any other XD models.
