Springfield Armory XD 45 Compact

This time our engineers have outdone themselves, defying the laws of physics, adding material where needed, shaving it away where it’s not . . . cramming 14 rounds of 45ACP punch into a polymer frame that is not perceptibly larger than the one we use for our 9mm and 40 cal. XDs.

Exceptional ergonomics, outstanding accuracy and consistent performance have made the award-winning Springfield XD one of America’s best-selling semiautomatic handguns. Metal parts on each gun are forged and machined from billet with utmost precision. Fully hammer-forged barrels enhance accuracy. Corrosion-resistant finishes are either super-hard black Melonite® or classic bead-blasted stainless steel. Nearly indestructible polymer frames. Ambidextrous magazine releases accommodate right- and left-handed shooters. Striker status indicators can be checked visually or by touch to verify whether the guns are cocked. Loaded chamber indicators can also be checked by sight and touch. Ultra Safety Assurance Trigger Systems™ prevent accidental discharges due to bumps or drops. Integrated 1911-style grip safeties ensure that these guns won’t fire unless held firmly in a shooter’s hand. Each of these XDs comes in a hard plastic case with a pair of magazines, a holster, a magazine loader and a double-magazine pouch.
