Since they were brought to America from Croatia, the Springfield Armory XD (X-treme Duty) series of polymer-framed, striker-fired semiautomatic pistols have earned a solid reputation. Springfield first introduced XD(M) to this series of pistols (the “M” is for its match-grade barrel and match-grade trigger) in 2007. Now Springfield has added a ½-inch x 28 TPI extended threaded barrel so that a suppressor can be added.
Springfield says in a press release: “Since its introduction, the XD(M) 4.5-inch Full Size has been the perfect pistol for those who are looking for full-size performance, sight radius and handling. Specially equipped with suppressor-height 3 dot sights, this XD(M) is ready to accept the muzzle-mounted accessory of your choice.”
This XD(M) has all the original features—interchangeable backstraps, Mega-lock texturing and a match-grade barrel—and now is capable of being a more polite gun at the range.
