Springfield Armory has announced a new color option for the 10mm XD-M Elite striker-fired handgun. Originally available in black, the OD-Green variant is exclusively available through Sportsman’s Warehouse.
Here’s the official press release:
Springfield Armory is proud to announce the release of the XD-M Elite 4.5” OSP 10mm in Magpul OD Green, an exclusive variant developed specifically for sale by Sportsman’s Warehouse. This highly capable 10mm, offered with an H-232 Magpul OD Green Cerakote finish on the slide, redefines what you should expect from a modern, striker-fired firearm.
Built on a solid foundation, the XD-M Elite 4.5″ OSP 10mm combines impressive capacity with powerful performance. The 4.5″ match grade Melonite finished barrel maximizes ballistic performance, and the highly ergonomic frame houses a double-column stainless steel magazine that provides a 16-round capacity. Two magazines are included with the pistol.
As an Optical Sight Pistol (OSP), the new XD-M Elite 4.5″ 10mm features a removable seamless cover plate that reveals a mounting interface for the optic of your choice. This is accomplished through the use of available mounting plates. Topping off its forged steel slide is Springfield Armory’s excellent Tactical Rack U-Dot™ rear sight, featuring a u-shaped white outline that works with the high-visibility fiber optic front sight.
To facilitate quick reloads, the XD-M Elite 4.5″ OSP 10mm features a removable extended and flared “short” magwell. At the heart of the pistol is the Match Enhanced Trigger Assembly (META) system, a superbly refined trigger featuring a flat face and integral overtravel stop. Additionally, an ambidextrous slide stop works in concert with the pistol’s ambi magazine release to ensure the pistol can be run easily by either hand.
“This newest XD-M Elite gives both shooters and outdoor enthusiasts a powerful pistol that will definitely stand out from the crowd,” says Steve Kramer, Vice President of Marketing for Springfield Armory. “With its Magpul OD Green slide, combined with all the appealing features of the XD-M Elite line, this new Sportsman’s Warehouse exclusive 10mm would make a great addition to any shooter’s collection.”
