Ben and I have been discussing the XD Mod.2 on and off since it’s announcement from Springfield Armory last week. The common theme that we’ve discussed is that all of the changes that Sprinfield made to the pistol appear to be positive, with exception to all the text printed all over it, especially the GRIP ZONE text on the grip. There’s a long running joke in the gun community about all the text that Ruger puts on their pistols, but if there were a contest about who can put the most on a single handgun, I think Springfield Armory wins this round.
So. Much. Better.
