SA finally does a Croatian Centimeter

Springfield Armory on last week announced they were adding a pair of 10mm offerings to their popular XD(M) line of handguns.

Teased for the past two years, the new 10mm installment to the XD series features a full-sized pistol with either a 4.5- or 5.25-inch Melonite finished match-grade hammer-forged barrel with fully supported chambers.

Both variants include “Mega-Lock” grip texturing (bye bye “Grip Zone!”) with three interchangeable backstraps and a 15+1 magazine capacity. When it comes to sights, the 4.5-inch model has a low-profile combat rear paired with a fiber optic front, while the 5.25 variant runs a fully adjustable target rear with a fiber optic front.

Springer is pretty serious about them, showing off a 10K round (and mega boring) reliability test using some pretty high-dollar ammo, and have a $652 MSRP on the shorter version. Plus through the end of the year SA has a deal where you get three extra mags (in addition to the pair that comes with the gun) and a carrying case for free once you register for the warranty.

Still, a Glock 20 runs in the same price neighborhood, so that is gonna be a tough sell.
