When it comes to security for you and your family, there’s rarely a concern over having too much ammo on hand.
The XD® Mod.2™ 5″ Tactical Model packs 16 rounds of 9MM ammo in each of its two included stainless steel magazines. While it’s a double stack design, it’s not too thick to carry like so many of our competitors’ models. Measuring just 1.2 inches wide, it is barely wider than single stack pistols with far lower capacity.
A pistol with a healthy sight radius is easier to shoot under stress, and that’s why we’ve chosen to fit the Mod.2™ Tactical Model with a full five-inch hammer forged carbon steel barrel. It’s treated with Melonite® to stand up to moisture, sweat, and other undesirable conditions over the long haul.
The slide takes most of the day to day wear and tear, so we’ve made sure to construct that from Melonite®-treated carbon steel too. While we always recommend properly caring for your handgun, the Mod.2™ Tactical isn’t one that will require babying. This combat-ready gun is designed to be used, not left in the safe.
Fast and accurate shooting requires control, so we’ve included all of the Mod.2™ enhancements. Springfield High Hand™ grip near the beavertail and below the trigger guard allow you to put support close to the bore line to minimize muzzle flip. The new GripZone® contours and texturing are specifically designed to provide maximum purchase at specific points where your hands and fingers require the most contact. Three different textures provide the friction needed without painful overkill.
Customers have responded very positively to the lightning fast sight combination of fiber optic front paired with a low profile combat rear sight, so you’ll find that combination on the Mod.2™ 5″ Tactical model too. If you prefer different sighting options, that’s no problem – dozens of aftermarket sights fit our standard dovetail cuts.
