Reviewing Our Springfield 45ACP XD Handgun

The Springfield 45ACP Pistol is has plenty of advantages for those looking for an amazing concealed carry weapon option. Its affordable price leaves plenty in the budget left over for ammunition and training on use or concealed carry lifestyle. Despite its caliber and high capacity, it could also be a great option to fit in the hands of shooters with smaller grip. Honestly it is one of the best self-defense options on the market.

Grip: The grip is incredibly slim and a double stack. It is a bit more abbreviated than other XDs on the market, but this simply helps to drastically improve the concealability of the firearm. However, even with the shorter grip it is still easy for most shooters to get a solid two-handed grip and draw out without fumbles.

Magazine: This pistol comes with a 10-round magazine but can also carry an extended 13-round magazine too. There is a slip for the extended magazine to help increase grip and conceal it from the outside to match the rest of the gun. The release button for the magazine is ambidextrous and very easy to engage from a firing grip on either side.

Safety: The trigger safety on this pistol functions like that of a Glock. When drawing out of a holster or concealment it is easy to disengage and activate. There is also an internal firing striker block that prevents misfires if the trigger has not been pulled. This pistol also sports a few loaded chamber indicators: one at the top of the slide and one that protrudes from the back of the slide. These both can be physically felt if in a dark environment like that where most self-defense situations occur.

Trigger: The trigger on XD pistol is known to be a little stiff, but it loosens up as your finger builds up strength from continuously using it. Also, this pistol’s recoil tends to be more of a push rather than a whip making it ideal for shorter stature or younger shooters. The gun can easily and quickly come back to target and its short slide cycle makes transition drills easy without over swinging.

Durability and Reliability: The pistol is clearly made to last. Its high-strength polymer frame can be used in any environment without damage or malfunction. The slide and barrel are made of forged steel and finished with a Melonite process that combats corrosion and resistance. This pistol is also extremely reliable and accurate. It feeds, shoots, and ejects just as expected and even when attempting to break it, holds up to the bad form, another reason this is great for more novice shooters. Moreover, Springfield offers a warranty for the pistol, so any manufacturer malfunctions can be fixed without worry.

The Springfield 45ACP XD Pistol is a great option for concealed carry self-defense, and great for those shooters looking for a smaller pistol to fit their hands. We highly recommend looking into this one for novice, smaller, and defense-geared shooters.
