The take-up portion of the trigger press seems to be about the same, possibly a little smoother and lighter than the old version. They included an extra flush plate so you can swap out the pinky extension plate. I seem to be shooting low so have to work on my grip. The loaded chamber indicator seems identical to the previous version although it is a nice feature to have. The pistols are about the same height and length.

Pistol Review: Springfield Armory XD

Springfield xds mod 2

I live in Louisiana, and the summer heat is in full force. All orders placed must be for in-store pickup only. I did some testing on random surfaces and my belt and racking the slide using the rear sight seems to work great. By comparison, the G43 is a softer-shooting gun. I know this is the result of grip angle because every time I point a Glock, the muzzle is way high. I was pleased to also see an 8-round magazine; this is usually an option that must be purchased separately. I did not get one single malfunction.

In personal experience, I didn't notice much difference once I started carrying the Mod. Our final test results yielded no malfunctions other than the shooter and ammunition-induced stoppages described above, neither of which can be attributed to the gun. The trigger broke at an average of 7. I shot the pistol using both the pinky-extension magazine and the extended magazine. Gonna have to do something about it because I'm really liking the rest of the pistol.

The new version also has finger grooves molded into the front of the grip instead of having a straight grip like the older version. The deep undercut on the trigger guard combined with the extended beaver tail allows for a higher grip and provides excellent recoil management. I also tried it out with my and it seems to work just as well. Comes with 2 double-stacked magazines. Thanks for this informative article. I finally got to the farm to shoot it last weekend.

Most notably, the pistol boasts the enhanced grip texturing familiar to other Springfield Mod.

Which sights are right for you? I confess that my trigger trouble stems mostly from the fact that I shoot so much with one specific trigger on my carry G19 that different press characteristics throw me off a bit. Both were just fine and I was able to get my whole hand on the grip with the pinky extension.

It is made for easy concealment with everyday clothes and even with light clothing or formal wear. The update made good progress on this score. A newly designed grip safety immediately readies the gun to fire when gripped, but keeps the gun safe from firing during appendix or off-body carry. Instead they designed a new version around the 9mm round itself. That said, I often carry one to two extra magazines and those are always extended magazines with extra rounds.

Three different textures are molded into specific parts of the grip where slip-resistance is most critical.

Springfield Armory® XD® Mod.2™ Subcompact Handguns : Cabela's

Springfield xds mod 2

I recently spent a few days shooting and getting to know the updated Mod. I do agree that for concealed carry, it is best to have the flush base plate, that is how I carry. This caused the rounds to dip forward and impinge against the feed ramp. This is a single-stack, subcompact, striker-fired pistol that is both relatively thin and relatively light. Vance Outdoors reserves the right to modify or change pricing information or descriptions without notice. Almost makes me wonder why I read your review all the way through. Even when damp the grip offers enough texturing to keep the gun firmly planted in the hand, and the Melonite ferritic nitrocarburized finish is durable and appears to stand up well to the rigors of daily carry.
