Introduction to the XD-E from Springfield Armory

Springfield Armory would like you all to take a look at the XD-E. The little Double Action/Single Action or Traditional Double Action (DA/SA or TDA) is among the various carry options offered by the Illinois based firearm manufacturer.

Available in 9mm in three different barrel lengths, 3.3″, 3.8″, and 4.5″. There is also a .45 ACP variant of the 3.3″ barrel. The XD-E kinda came out of nowhere, unasked for, and yet has gained a popular enough following that Landon Tactical is doing a rendition.

With an even better trigger, hammer, and night sights the LTT edition is one of the best indicators the XD-E itself is a valuable single stack base gun. It still has the “Grip Zone” though, as goofy an addition as that is.

There are some tools so basic, you can’t imagine being without them. But even essential tools can be refined and improved.

That’s the principle behind the new XD-E™: the best elements of the world-renowned XD® Series, condensed into a weapon so intuitive, comfortable and accurate, you can’t imagine being without it.

The XD-E™ sculpts unmatched Point And Shoot Ergonomics™ into a sleek frame just an inch wide, for hand and holster fit so satisfying you’ll take it everywhere. The low-effort slide practically racks itself, so handling’s a pleasure. The exposed hammer clearly shows gun mode, and the single/double action trigger shows respect for your shooting style, unlike other compacts.

Then there’s the grip: GripZone® provides active texture that matches your grasp like a handshake, improves stability, and feels incredible. Three magazine options let you personalize concealability and capacity. Impeccable feel, weight and balance launch the XD-E™ from invisible to impactful in an instant, for go-anywhere confidence unlike any you’ve felt.

New shooter or skilled gunner, wrap your mitt around the new XD-E™ and you’ll know. This is more than a hammer. It redefines what your hammer should be.

The hammer – the most important tool in the toolbox.
