Moving its XD-M OSP to 10mm, Springfield Armory gives shooters an affordable, optics-ready option in the powerful caliber.
What the XD-M 10mm offers:
- Comes with three base plates making it compatible with seven reflex sights.
- Suppressor-ready threaded barrel.
- Suppressor-height iron sights, that should work as a backup aiming system if an optic breaks down.
Given the waves it made Springfield Armory made with its plain-Jane 10mm, it’s surprising this is just coming out. That and the XD-M OSP (Optical Sight Pistol) has a couple of years vintage now. Yet, it might have been worth the wait for those dying for an affordable “Perfect 10” with an integral optics mounting system.

In all, the XD-M OSP 10mm comes with three base plates, making it compatible with Vortex Venom, Burris FastFire 2, Burris FastFire 3, Leupold DeltaPoint, Leupold DeltaPoint Pro, JPoint Sights, and Trijicon RMR sights. Furthermore, it boasts a threaded barrel and co-witness suppressor-height iron sights, so you can see over your can. They should also work in a pinch, if your reflex sight’s battery dies.

However, the eye-catcher for those who have a yen for an optics-ready 10mm, is the price. With an MSRP of $695 the XD-M 10mm comes in at the low end of the price range compared to similarly decked out pistols. Not bad, since this make-caliber combination has proven itself fairly popular already.
More from Springfield Armory:
GENESEO, ILL. –Springfield Armory is proud to announce the XD-M Optical Sight Pistol (OSP) in 10mm.
Power is a matter of perspective and the all new XD-M OSP in 10mm delivers both in our most potent and versatile platform. Optics ready out of the box, the XD-M OSP in 10mm ships with three adapter plates to accept today’s most popular red dot optics.
This optics-ready pistol features a threaded barrel and factory milled slide, allowing the operator to choose the optic and suppressor or muzzle device that fits their needs.
The 5.3” hammer-forged, Melonite® treated, threaded barrel comes with a thread protector, and the suppressor-height sights co-witness with your choice of optic, allowing the iron sights to be used through the optic if necessary.
