I know what you are thinking. "Those are some mighty strong words from a man that sits behind a computer and writes about firearms for a living. Why should I trust him?" I will admit that I do not have personal experience with everything that I write about, but the Springfield XD series is something I have a great deal of experience with. Not only have I fired the Springfield XD-9, I own a Springfield XD 45. When I say that this series of pistol is marked by its performance, reliability and safety, I mean it. Just take a look at some of what this pistol has to offer.
Every pistol will experience fail-to-fires and jams. It is the nature of the beast. But the Springfield XD series has a track record of proven reliability. Moreover, it features a factory-standard two-stage trigger with a trigger travel of only 13mm and a trigger pull rated between 5.5 and 7.7 pounds. With a short trigger reset right out of the box, high performance is something you will become accustomed to very quickly. But in today's unpredictable world, unobtrusive safety features are what really matter. And that is where the Springfield XD shines.
All Springfield XD pistols feature a striker-status indicator that provides a visual and tactile confirmation that the pistol is cocked with a protruding pin located on the rear of the slide. There is also a loaded-chamber indicator on the top of the slide that pivots upward and alerts the shooter when there is a round in the chamber. These are joined by a number of passive safeties that make accidental discharges a thing of the past. Both a grip safety and a trigger safety necessitate a firing grip on the pistol. Additionally, there is a drop safety that prevents discharges that would result from a significant impact as well as an out-of-battery safety that prevents firing unless the slide is completely in battery.
The Springfield XD-9 features a 4-inch barrel and an overall length of 7.3 inches. The barrel has both a melonite finish as well as a fully-supported ramp. The forged steel slide also features a melonite finish for enhanced corrosion resistance. With its lightweight, polymer frame, the pistol weighs in at just 1.75 pounds – making it manageable by just about anyone. The low recoil of the 9x19mm Parabellum round does not hurt either. The pistol's 3-dot iron sight system features a dovetail front sight and provides for a rapid acquisition of targets and pinpoint accuracy. As noted the pistol includes two 16-round magazines as well as a MIL-STD 1913 rail for mounting lights and lasers.
For all-around use, there are not many pistols that will beat the Springfield XD-9. Consider picking one up for:
