NEW Springfield Armory XD-M Elite 4.5″ OSP 10mm – Power & Capacity

When it comes to the 10mm cartridge there is a lot of buzz surrounding the round for its thunderous energy and power, but with all of that discussion there still exist few full-size options for shooters to choose from. Springfield Armory looks to improve upon that with a new iteration of their popular, high-class XD-M Elite series by unveiling a NEW 4.5″ OSP 10mm that comes with or without a Hex Dragonfly Red Dot mounted from the factory.
