The Springfield Armory XD Mod.2 Sub-Compact is a masterpiece ahead of its time. Be sure to protect it with our Kydex XD Mod 2 Subcompact concealed carry holsters.
The Look of It
It is not very often that we get a super compact striker-fired, double-stacked 9mm pistol that bests its predecessor, until 2015 when Springfield released the Mod.2 version of the XD.
The Mod.2 3” (3-inch barrel length) as it has come to be known, is as gorgeous as a pistol can get.
While some may dislike the large print “GRIP ZONE” written on the grip, it is a comforting reminder that they have re-designed the texture pattern of the original.
The three zones maintain the three most crucial parts of a firing grip.
The Feel of It
When holding the Mod.2 3” you immediately notice how ergonomically sound Springfield has designed this pistol.
The grip safety and the trigger safety are passive safeties and will not even allow the firearm to cycle unless you have a proper firing grip thus reducing the chances of an accidental discharge.
The loaded chamber indicator and the striker-primer indicator are additional safeties added to the firearm to notify the shooter either by touch or sight, that the weapon is fully cycled and is ready to fire.
The Mod.2 3” has an ambidextrous magazine release that allows smooth and rapid reloading.
The weapon in its XD GEAR package comes with a dual magazine holder, a speed loader, a hard case, and two magazines (a flush 13 round magazine and a 16 round magazine with the X-Tension grip).
The Soundness of It
The Mod.2 3” is incredibly smooth and accurate. That is a very surprising feature for it being such a compact 9mm sporting only a 3” barrel.
Due to the dual recoil spring and expanded grip technology, there is a steady distribution of gas meaning there is little recoil.
The sights are a dovetailed front and rear 3-dot steel that maintain an excellent point-and-shoot line of sight.
The Springfield Armory XD Mod.2 Sub-Compact is made for two things, looking good and shooting better. If you like our Springfield XD Mod.2 9mm holsters, be sure to check out our Mod.2 Service holsters.
