Springfield Armory may have just announced the introduction of an authentic Hi-Power clone but they are also keeping an eye on the more modern side of the market too with an expansion of their XD-S Mod.2 OSP line. Two new XD-S Mod.2 OSP variants – a 3.3-inch .45 ACP and 4-inch 9mm have been announced. Combining the concealability and compact size of a single-stack pistol with optics-ready capability, Springfield Armory are offering the pistols in packages, ready mounted with Crimson Trace red dots. MSRP on the pistol on its own is running at $450 while the added Crimson Trace sight comes in at $550.

Springfield Armory® is proud to announce the release of two new variants in the XD-S Mod.2® OSP™ line. Combining the concealability and compact size of a single-stack pistol with optics-ready capability, these new .45 ACP and 9mm offerings continue the tradition of the XD-S line by providing the pinnacle of point and shoot ergonomics.
The XD-S Mod.2 OSP 3.3″ .45 ACP delivers heavy-hitting, big-bore power to the compact pistol series, coming standard with a flush-fit, five-round magazine and an extended six-round magazine with grip extension. The XD-S Mod.2 OSP 4″ 9mm offering expands on the 9mm line, giving users a longer 4″ barrel for increased sight radius and improved ballistic performance. The 4” 9mm comes with one seven-round flush-fit magazine and one extended nine-round magazine with grip extension. Both pistols are offered with an optional Crimson Trace micro-sized red dot.
These pistols, like the entire striker-fired XD series, feature passive grip safeties. These add an additional layer of security and safety to these world-class CCW pistols. The result is a safety that is automatically disengaged when you grip the pistol, and re-engages when the pistol is no longer being held.
As part of the Optical Sight Pistol (OSP) configuration, both pistols come with a factory-milled slide for low-profile, direct mounting of compact optics for an intuitive sight picture and uninterrupted focus on target. The result is a handgun that accepts the smallest, most popular micro red dots on the market.
By allowing for direct mounting of the optic, the XD-S Mod.2 OSP pistols situate optics such as the Crimson Trace red dot or optics like the HEX Wasp low enough to allow utilization of the iron sights in an emergency. The pistols’ sights are made up of a white dot front sight paired with an anti-glare serrated U-notch rear to ensure quick and positive target acquisition. When an optic is not present, an included seamless polymer cover plate installs with ease and adds additional slide serrations.
“These new XD-S Mod.2 OSP offerings in .45 ACP and 9mm provide our customers with even more EDC options,” says Steve Kramer, Vice President of Marketing for Springfield Armory. “The 3.3″ .45 ACP is ideal for those who want big-bore power in the smallest package, while the 4″ 9mm gives you increased ballistic performance in a still extremely concealable pistol.”
As with the earlier XD-S Mod.2 OSP offerings, these two new variants provide a great deal of value to the consumer. Both versions have an MSRP of just $550 with the Crimson Trace optic, and $450 without.
These newest members of the Springfield Armory family of polymer-framed pistols stand ready to deliver tough, reliable and powerful CCW defense.
