Springfield Armory XD-M Elite 3.8″ Compact OSP Details
The 3.8″ Compact OSP design focuses on concealed carry. The platform blends surprising capacity with performance and concealable dimensions for easy of carry. The 3.8-inch match-grade Melonite-finished barrel maximizes ballistic performance, according to Springfield Armory. It also remains compact for concealability. A compact grip frame houses a double-column stainless steel magazine packing 14+1 rounds. The pistol ships with two mags.
The Optical Sight Pistol (OSP) package features a removable seamless cover plate. It protects a mounting location for the user’s optic of choice. It even accommodates Springfield’s new HEX Dragonfly or HEX Wasp red dots.
A removable, extended and flared “short” magwell helps facilitate quick reloads. The design also quickly converts to a full-size frame, bringing capacity up to 19+1. Users simply remove the magwell, employing optional full-size XD-M magazines with compatible magazine sleeves.
The 3.8″ Compact OSP also comes with the Match Enhanced Trigger Assembly (META) system. The refined trigger helps users get the most accuracy out of the platform. It features a flat face and integral overtravel stop.
The pistol includes an ambidextrous slide stop and mag release. It also utilizes improved slide serrations with enlarged grasping grooves. Finally, a forged steel slide and Springfield’s Tactical Rack U-Dot rear sight and fiber-optic front sight round out the features.
“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.”
