Recently, Springfield Armory has released a brand new pistol to the XD-M Elite lineup with the XD-M Elite Compact OSP. This new pistol is optics-ready and comes with a standard 15-round magazine. Owners have the capability to use a full sized magazine as well due to the interchangeable magwell that comes with the Elite Compact OSP. The pistol also features Springfield’s META trigger system for shorter pre-travel, clean crisp break, and shorter reset. The Elite Compact OSP has the ability to mount Springfield’s new Wasp red dot or an other compact pistol red dot sight. You can also purchase the Elite Compact OSP with the Wasp included if you so choose to. Below, is the press release from Springfield Armory in regards to the XD-M Elite Compact OSP.

Press Release

GENESEO, ILL. – Springfield Armory® is proud to announce the newest addition to the popular XD-M® Elite series — the XD-M® Elite 3.8″ Compact OSP™. This EDC-ready 9mm, like all the XD-M Elites, redefines what you should expect from modern, striker-fired firearms.

The XD-M Elite 3.8″ Compact OSP is designed for concealed carry, combining impressive capacity and performance with concealable dimensions for ease of carry. The 3.8″ match grade Melonite® finished barrel maximizes ballistic performance while remaining compact for concealability, and the compact grip frame houses a double-column stainless steel magazine that provides 14+1 capacity in the two included magazines.

As an Optical Sight Pistol (OSP), the new XD-M Elite 3.8″ Compact OSP features a removable seamless cover plate that reveals a mounting location for the optic of your choice, such as the new HEX™ Dragonfly™ or HEX Wasp™.

To facilitate quick reloads, the XD-M Elite 3.8″ Compact OSP also features a removable extended and flared “short” magwell. An additional benefit of the removable magwell is that you can quickly convert the pistol from a compact to a full-size frame with a 19+1 capacity. This is accomplished by simply removing the magwell and employing optional full-size XD-M magazines with compatible magazine sleeves.

At the heart of the pistol is the Match Enhanced Trigger Assembly (META™) system, a superbly refined trigger designed to wring out the most from the pistol’s most important interface with the shooter. Featuring a flat face and integral overtravel stop, the META™ system delivers the finest trigger pull available on a production polymer-framed pistol.

The XD-M® Elite 3.8″ Compact OSP includes an ambidextrous slide stop and magazine release, ensuring that it can be run easily by either hand. Additionally, improved slide serrations with enlarged grasping grooves provide enhanced ergonomics and slip-free purchase. Topping off its forged steel slide is Springfield Armory’s excellent Tactical Rack U-Dot™ rear sight. It features a u-shaped white outline and works in concert with the high-visibility fiber optic front sight.

In addition to being offered as a standalone pistol with an MSRP of $633, the XD-M Elite 3.8″ Compact OSP is also being packaged with the HEX Dragonfly for an MSRP of $818.

“This newest addition to the XD-M Elite line of pistols gives shooters and concealed carry users a great option for a red dot-ready EDC pistol,” says Steve Kramer, Vice President of Marketing for Springfield Armory. “Features like its optics capability, fully ambidextrous controls and a funneled, removable magwell make the XD-M® Elite 3.8″ Compact OSP a must-have for CCW.”

If you need a capable and powerful 9mm pistol that combines ultra-refined performance with concealable dimensions, then look no further than the new XD-M Elite 3.8″ Compact OSP.
