Combining potent power with cutting-edge performance, the new XD-M® Elite 3.8" Compact OSPTM 10mm provides concealed carry users with an outstanding defensive pistol option. Compact yet powerful, the pistol packs in 11+1 rounds of the powerful 10mm. Featuring fully ambidextrous controls, the excellent METATM trigger, and much more, the new XD-M® Elite 3.8" Compact OSPTM 10mm harnesses fight-stopping power in an extremely capable concealed carry package.

“I do not consider myself a good pistol marksman, nor an expert when it comes to handguns at all. However, when it comes to archery hunting in bear country, you will not catch me wandering around with a can of bear spray. I enjoy the peace and comfort that comes from having a compact 10mm with a mag full of alternating hollow points and solids attached to my belt. While I hope that I never have to shoot at a grizzly bear gnawing on my leg, I would not feel comfortable archery hunting without it. When this XD-M Elite came out, I was excited to try out this compact setup that has the comfort and feel that Springfield is known for while adding the power of a 10mm round. I was amazed at how easy the pre-installed HEX red- dot sight was to acquire the dot and make accurate shots. While worldwide the 10mm has come back into the spotlight, I think all hunters should consider this new pistol, either for personal defense or for protection while in the woods.” – Austin Atkinson, Hunt Advisor
