Springfield Armory Revamps the XD Line of Handguns?
I'll admit to being a fan of the original XD line of pistols. Particularly the Tactical 5" models in 45 ACP and 40 S&W. I'm quite intrigued by the email from Springfield that arrived in my in-box a few minutes ago. Let the speculation begin.
I'm thinking the XD line could be heading down the path of the Gen 4 Glock with new grip textures and possibly interchangeable backstraps as found on the XDm and XDs lines. Regardless, the update to the line appears to be quite significant.
For me the most telling hint so far came from the webpage title when you sign up for future email updates. The page title currently displays XDMOD2. Feel free to add your guesses on the new XD Model 2 in the comments below.
Will we have to wait for SHOT 2015 to find out more?
