Awesome article!!! This is "XD OSP Slide" is something I have been hoping Springfield Armoy would offer.
Living "Behind the Lines" in the "People's Democratic Socialist Republic of Commiefornia", we are limited in the choices of Firearms. Sure I would like to own a XDM OSP Elite, but unfortunately its not on the states "CA Approved Handgun Roster."
I have wanted to add a MRDS to my XD9 and XD45 Service 4 " barrel and Tactical 5 25" barrel, but really didn't want to have my original slides modified for a long time now. This will now give me the option of installing a "XD OSP" slide on my XD9 Service 4" barrel. I prefer my Springfield Armoy XD9 and XD45 over my Glocks. The XD's just feel right in my hand. XD's are ergonomically perfect!!!
Awesome deal Springfield Armoy, You hit a home run with this option!!! I'll take an XD's over a Glock anyday!!!
Now if you would just offer a "XD OSP Slide" for both my XD45 Service 4" and Tactical 5.25" "XD OSP Slide in 5.25" I would definitely be a "Happy Camper!!!"
