LAS VEGAS – Springfield Armory demonstrated its newest compact .45 caliber pistol at SHOT Show 2015.
The new XD MOD 2 .45 follows the introduction of the 9mm and .40 caliber versions of the pistol that were released a few months ago.
It has a redesigned back strap and trigger guard, said Rob Leatham, of Springfield Armory. The MOD 2 .45 also features a nine-round magazine and a fiber-optic front sight.
Designers also moved the serrations around to make it easier to rack the slide, he said.
I have to say it was very comfortable to shoot for a compact .45. The MOD 2 .45 will be available in about six weeks for $593.
