Illinois-based Springfield Armory this week announced their newest XD-S Mod. 2 9mm sub-compact pistol, the optics ready OSP.
The striker-fired polymer-framed XD-S has a factory-milled slide for a micro red-dot optic and is offered paired with an optional Crimson Trace CTS-1500 that co-witnesses with the standard iron sights. For those who elect not to mount an optic, the single-stack pistol ships with a polymer slide cover plate.
“The new XD-S Mod.2 OSP delivers a new capability to the proven and popular XD-S Mod.2 pistol,” said Steve Kramer, SA's VP of Marketing in a statement. “With its slim and compact size, powerful chambering, and now the ability to low-mount a micro red dot, the XD-S Mod.2 OSP is a class-leading option for an EDC handgun.”
Shipping with both a 7- and a 9-shot mag, MSRP on the XD-S Mod.2 OSP, sans optic, is $425, jumping to $549 when the Crimson Trace micro red dot is included.
