Towards the end of May, Springfield Armory had announced that they were bringing in the hard-hitting and stalwart 10mm cartridge to their XD-M Elite line of premium handguns. Now, as we are slowly approaching fall with its bevy of big-game hunting seasons, Springfield Armory has unveiled a Sportsman’s Warehouse Exclusive with an OD Green XD-M Elite 4.5″ OSP 10mm!

Springfield Armory @ TFB:

For those who are unfamiliar or may have missed the news, the XD-M Elite line of pistols takes the moniker of Xtreme Duty Match to another tier of quality. Then, couple in options like an optics cut (OSP – Optical Sight Pistol), threaded and non-threaded barrel options, and up to 22-round magazines and you have the whole kitchen sink at your disposal for a feature set. All of the features and specifications can be read below as presented by Springfield Armory:

  • Barrel: 4.5″ Hammer Forged Steel, Melonite® Finish, 1:16
  • Slide: Forged Steel, Melonite® Finish, Optics Ready
  • Frame: Black Polymer
  • Sights: Fiber Optic Front, Tactical Rack U-Dot™ Rear
  • Recoil System: Captive
  • Grip Width: 1.2″
  • Magazines: (2) 16-Round
  • Weight: 31 oz
  • Length: 7.6″
  • Height: 5.75″

The marquee feature that makes this a unique exclusive offering from Sportsman’s Warehouse is the OD Green colorway accents evident on the slide and replaceable grip panels. A tiny difference from the original, but the Cerakote finish is an improvement in durability and your street cred – in the woods and among your shooting cadre.

  • SPORTSMAN’S WAREHOUSE DISTRIBUTOR EXCLUSIVE – The Magpul OD Green XD-M Elite 4.5 OSP 10mm is a Sportsman’s Warehouse distributor exclusive.
  • MAGPUL® OD GREEN CERAKOTE® FINISH – The slide and backstrap on this Sportsman’s Warehouse exclusive are finished in H-232 Magpul OD Green Cerakote.

The Sportsman’s Warehouse exclusive XD-M® Elite 4.5” OSP 10mm in Magpul® OD Green combines all the refinements of the Elite series with the impressive power of the 10mm cartridge. Offering an impressive 16+1 capacity, the pistol features the Match Enhanced Trigger Assembly (META™) with a flat face, crisp break and integral overtravel stop. Additional features include an optics-cut slide, an extended/removable flared magwell, improved slide serrations and an ambidextrous slide stop. This exclusive handgun also features an H-232 Magpul® OD Green finished slide and backstrap.

At an MSRP of $675, it is a very reasonable asking price for a high-capacity 10mm handgun. The additional curb appeal of this OD Green XD-M Elite just in time for hunting season as either a primary or secondary could make its way into a lot of people’s holsters and safes, but what do you think? As always, let us know all of your thoughts in the Comments below! We always appreciate your feedback.

    OD Green is a pleonasm.
    OD is enough.
    There's no OD blue, or OD red ...

    I am glad that Sportsman Warehouse did not fall into the clutches of Bass Pro Shop
