The new XD-M Elite 4.5 Optical Sight Pistol, as its name would infer, comes standard from Croatia via Springer with a 4.5-inch hammer-forged steel barrel and a slide milled for a micro red dot. With a 7.6-inch overall length, the pistol includes an extended and flared “short” magwell for rapid magazine swaps. Speaking of mags, the XD-M Elite 4.5 OSP has a 16+1 capacity in 10mm Auto. Other features include Springer's META flat-faced trigger system, Tactical Rack U-dot rear sights paired with a fiber-optic front, and an ambi slide stop.
"This newest addition to the XD-M Elite line of pistols gives shooters and outdoor enthusiasts a great option for a powerful and capable defensive pistol," said Steve Kramer, Springfield's VP of marketing. "Features like its optics capability, fully ambidextrous controls and a funneled, removable magwell make the XD-M Elite 4.5-inch OSP 10mm ideal for anyone serious about self-defense."
The MSRP on the standard new XD-M Elite 4.5 OSP 10mm is $653.
