    9mm And .45 ACP Models Silencer Ready Out Of The Box With Threaded Barrels And Suppressor Sights

    GENESEO, IL, January 12, 2016 – Springfield Armory is pleased to announce two new suppressor ready XD(M) handguns. The new 4.5-inch barrel models chambered in 9mm and .45 ACP feature extended pre-threaded barrels and extra-tall suppressor height sights that allow attachment of standard silencers with no customization required.

    The new two new XD(M) 4.5-inch Full-Size models feature flat dark earth frames matched with a forged carbon steel Melonite slides.

    “Shooters are buying suppressors in record numbers,” observed Springfield Armory CEO Dennis Reese. “”Shooting pistols suppressed is not only enjoyable, it's also safer for shooters and bystanders both due to the greatly reduced noise levels. It was important to us to make it as easy as possible for our customers to use a suppressor of their choice.”

    The 5.28” barrel extends ¾” from the front of the slide, so no adapter is required - customers can simply attach a silencer directly to the existing barrel threads. The 9mm XD(M) Threaded model features the standard ½” x 28 threading while the .45 ACP model is cut with a .578” x 28 threads per inch pattern. Both models ship with a thread protector cap to prevent damage while shooting unsuppressed.

    Both front and rear sights are custom designed and tall enough to ensure visibility over most standard suppressor bodies. The steel three-dot sights are finely serrated on the shooter-facing sides to minimize glare and provide a more crisp sight picture. The front sight rises .365-inches above the top of the slide for unobstructed sight picture visibility.

    “We decided to offer the suppressor models in both 9mm and .45 ACP to meet a variety of customer shooting preferences,” says Reese. “.45 ACP is naturally subsonic, and a perfect choice for suppressor use, but we’re also excited about 9mm options. Our counterparts in the ammunition business are making some great and affordable 9mm subsonic rounds, so we wanted to build a gun for that caliber too.”

    Beyond the suppressor-specific changes, the XD(M) 4.5 Threaded Model shares the same great features of the standard XD(M) models including match grade hammer forged barrels, interchangeable backstraps, and classic XD ergonomics.

    Both new XD(M) Threaded models ship with three magazines. The 9mm versions hold 19 rounds each while the .45 ACP magazines fit 13.

    The new XD(M) 4.5” Full-Size Threaded offers everything customers desire in a full-size pistol, just in a quieter package.

    I picked up my XDm 45 suppressor model today and have been looking for night sights...nearest I can come up with is that Sig sights will fit?

    Ameriglo Classic Tritium 3-Dot Night Sights - Sig Sauer All Models - SG-181, these are the TALL SUPPRESSOR SIGHTS FOR SIG.

    Seems like finding holster to clear tall sights also a problem, I suppose it will have to be custom made.

    Nice made gun though...has new improved slide release [different than my 45 Tactical model] can be released with thumb using one hand.

    But why not also SPRINGFIELD ARMORY make the threaded barrels and suppressor night sights for us, THEIR BASE, available. Instead we have to recur to third parties vendors. Don't they realize they are giving up a lot away to the S&W, SIgs, Glocks, FNH, CZ, etc for not making these accessories?

    PLUS any new starting shooter would likely consider other brand OVER SA because we/people will have to say NOPE, SA doesn't have it for your pistol.

    And liability, if a smaller third party company can make accessories for the XD/XDM/XD Mod2 series, certainly SA can as well!

    45 simply does not suppress very well. Despite being subsonic. Most folks use an ablative media to make it a little more quiet.

    Subsonic 9mm in 147 and 158 gr bullets, can be fantastically quiet with a good suppressor.

    Nevertheless, glad that they're making them because suppressor ownership is considerably on the rise.

    That's because SA stamps the serial number on the slide, barrel and frame... All three numbers have to match on their side for legal reasons I suspect.
    There are quite a few aftermarket company's that make a match grade threaded barrel for the XDM's...
