Rob Pincus got an exclusive chance to try out the new Springfield Armory XD Mod 2 handgun a few weeks before it was released to the public. This new compact defensive handgun dramatically improves the ergonomics of an already great pistol with new contouring and Gripzone textures. In this video, Rob describes some of the features of the Mod 2, compares it head to head with the original XD on the range and tests it for reliability with defensive ammunition. Rob also gives another shooter a chance to run the Mod 2 through some drills with the Jedburgh Target System.

    what happened to the e-mails for training/info and such, haven't seen any in my e-mail box in months. I am a premier member, what am I not doing?

    i prefer the fit and light weight of the xd9sc to any other weapon i have handled with the added double stack 13,16,18 round mag from the basic 10 very little recoil and very accurate from 20 feet to 50 feet i love my xd and wouldn't want anything else for personal protection ccw it is an excellant ladies gun or for a man with small hands and using 124 gr hydrashocks at 1200fps it has as much take down or stopping power as a .45 with only 945fps

    I carry a Kimber .45 Ultra CDP II. The Springfied is getting good press. From what I see it is slightly smaller than my Kimber but not enough to change to my primary weapon. I'd be willing to hear any suggestion s though.

    Your i button in the video does nothing. No info on the gun there.

    My current carry gun is the xd sub-compact. I really enjoy shooting it but I think I need to take a look at the mod 2. Maybe it is time to buy another gun.

    will take more than ergonomics to get me to buy one as I have the XDsc as well as a XDc already.....

    Great video. I have to laugh... I just bought a Springfield XD Subcompact 9mm last month so of course a brand new better model comes out. lol Guns are like computers now, buy one and the new version is out next week. All kidding aside, I like the feel of my XD. I'm a big guy with fairly large hands so I'll keep in for a while.
