Adam Scepaniak 07.25.22
The Springfield Armory XD line of handguns has been around for decades and is classically known for being an Xtreme Duty pistol. Having been chambered in multiple cartridges over the years as well as varying sizes, it has been a staple line of handguns to suit your needs for a multitude of disciplines. Now, shooters can purchase individual XD OSP Slide Assembly Kits to convert their handguns from .40 S&W to 9mm and/or make them an optical sight pistol (OSP) as well.
