Springfield Armory XD Essential Package 3 in Description

Springfield is currently no longer shipping items with the XD gear. The XD 3 Sub-Compact from Springfield Armory is designed to bring you the most in a concealed carry pistol. Its superior ergonomics, reliable performance, and astonishing capacity combine to put more into a concealable pistol than you will find anywhere else. The XD 3 Sub-Compact has all the same features found in the standard XD line, but in a smaller package. The barrel is 3 and the frame is a short, compact size that will let the pistol nearly disappear when you carry it. Like other XD pistols, the XD 3 Sub-Compact gives you great versatility when its used with X-Tension magazines. Enjoy 13+1 rounds of 9mm, (9+1 of .40SW) with standard flush-fitting magazines. Or throw in an X-Tension magazine and enjoy the feel of a full size frame and 16+1 rounds of 9mm (12+1 of .40SW.) Youll find everything on the XD 3 Sub-Compact that make Springfields XDs easy to use and safe to handle. The striker status indicator, loaded chamber indicator, grip safety, Ultra Safety Assurance (USA) Action Trigger System and internal firing pin block bring the safety and usability to the XD 3 Sub-Compact that youre used to with every other XD. If youre looking for a concealable pistol, but dont want to sacrifice capacity, reach for an XD 3 Sub-Compact. Its an excellent choice for concealed carry, and it is equally in its element at the range.

    Another great gun from Springfield.
    This may end up being my EDC if I can find a good holster. Even my wife liked shooting it.

    HEAVY METAL
    High quality, great shooter. Many nice features..but..too heavy for me as a CCW. Should have done my homework. This "subcompact" is quite large. However, it is well engineered and reliable.

    Amazing
    This is the first hand gun that I have purchased for myself. I wanted something of this size but didn't want to pay an arm and a leg for it as it is my practice range gun. I was told to look on this site for a deal. ...I came across this gun at a great deal, and had to purchase it. The gun store down the street from me received the gun super quick and the process was so easy and fast. Thank you! more

    I received the Springfield XD 9 in 4 days from the order date. This sub-compact model is very easy to conceal for all you CCP holders. I haven't shot mine yet, but have shot the exact model. It's a accurate shoot...ing gun with a 16-round capacity. The price was the lowest I've seen for this model since I've been looking at it for the past 6 months...$339! more

    Eye catcher in the firing range because of its accuracy at 7 yards. Smooth trigger pull without drag. Definitely a CCW and a definitely a defensive gun with a reasonable price.

    I've had this pistol for a few years now and I love it. The gun is as accurate as the shooter and I've been able to hit plates at 50 yards consistently with the gun. I'm 5'10" and around 155-160 pounds and the recoil is ...noticeable but it is controllable. The larger magazines with the extended grip sometimes take a bit of force to get fully into the gun, but if you ram them in fast and hard (haha) they go in and stay in. The smaller magazines always go in very well and are a little small for my medium sized hands, but not small enough to the point where it hinders my shooting and/or is uncomfortable. My only real qualm with the mags is that at first the springs in them are strong enough to launch a shuttle into orbit (slight exaggeration), so I would definitely get some snap caps or just some ammo and leave them in the mags to help combat this. Disassembly is easy, the slide lock is good for charging the gun just as well as racking the slide, magazine release has never screwed up on me as well. I was out shooting recently (few days ago as of this posting), and the gun jammed on me a few times. I was using steel cased low-quality ammo, and earlier I had been using semi-low quality brass cased ammo and had fired 200+ rounds during some training, leaving me to believe that it was the garbage ammo's fault and not the guns. The gun was a little dirty as well so maybe that contributed but I still think the overarching problem was the steel. If you're on a budget, this gun is great, and you should be able to afford brass ammo, which I would DEFINITELY recommend over steel. Overall, I love the gun, and I can't say anything about the conceal carry aspects of it because I live in a state that doesn't allow the everyday person to do so. more

    I brought this gun for conceled carry the price isnt bad. Out of the ruger9mm or xd9mm i should have went with ruger, this gun is to heavy for and conceled carry on your side. I will be purchasing the ruger380 next.

    I'm a fan! Maybe you would call me old school, but i prefer a weapon with certain safety features, for my own protection. The SA XD Sub-compact is everything I expected and more. It has been flawless in operation, carrie...s nicely as my edc and has become my best friend, next to my dog, of course. The XD is reliable. The built in safety features, such as grip safety, coupled with the identifiers, chambered and cocked, make for an outstanding defense weapon. I know at a glance I'm ready and have confidence if and when I may need it. Solid choice!!! more

    Great manufacturer great store great price
    This gun is for my home and wife. She is very inexperienced and can put shots on target while practicing at the local range. It is easy to handle and is quite capable of defense with 16 rounds! The size is amazing for pe...rsonal carry and the safety design prevents accidental misfires opposed to other leading carry concealment manufacturers out there. When I fire it I notice it is very accurate even for a shorter barrel. I will invest in a shoulder fired with this same manufacturer again. more

    Is both my CC and home defense pistol...excellent!
    Have never had a FTF (fail to fire or fail to feed) or a FTE. It isn't slim like ab MP Shield, but it works as a CC piece with not too much trouble. I bought a "Pearce Mag Grip" for the 13 round flushfitti...ng mag. It makes a big difference to have somewhere to put that pinky lol. Along, with the 13 round mag it's 16 round magazine puta a nice amount of rounds close at hand. Right now other than a .357 revolver this is really my home defense pistol as well. It my funds were unlimited I might not use it for this dual use, but I am comfortable firing it and accurate(although, I am the first to say I have more to improve at a distance). The pistol itself is accurate and the added weight and width takes a lot of that recoil. When I fire some quality 9mm pocket pistols I feel like I am shooting a .45 not a 9mm and friends with the ultra light/slim single stack 9mms are surprised at how easy it is to fire. Finally, I use and recommend(from info I've read and amateur testing I've done) "Federal 9mm 150 grain HST Micro." This round is designed for SCs pistols. Specifically, ones with barrels 3 inches or less. It's designed to make sure there is definite expansion, and to combat other negative factors shooting out of a short barrel pistol. They are heavy and you can see the cut for expansion going deeper and down the entire visible bullet. The HST in general Is a respected round.Either way, IMHO a round designed for sub compact guns is a positive. This gun is great in general and also for the money. In Ohio where I live it's still flying off the shelves despite the many newer "XD or XDM models." I have had this gun for years and still love it. The best pistol I have bought when all is taken into account! more

    XD's are great guns. Had it out for the first time today in the rain, as I had to go shoot it to try it out. Nice little shooter with a very high capacity for such a small pistol. Very happy with this purchase, and I rea...lly like the looks, and feel of the gun. I have a Galco Miami Classic shoulder holster for It, and it will be my carry pistol for fall, winter, and early spring. Great value with great reliability, and accuracy to top it off. On top of all that Springfield is sending me 4 free mags, a pistol holster, and a mag holster. Thanks again Bud's! more

    I ordered this little beauty for personal carry, since it is a sub-compact. First day it arrived I gave it a good clean and lube and off to the range I went. It was a pleasure to put 100 rounds through it. It has a bit o...f a kick because of the low mass and short barrel but not bad at all. Excellent accuracy and felt really good in my hands. The only criticism I have is for the mag release button. It's in an awkward position so I had to move my hand out of the shooting position to change mags, so no fast-changes on this gun, but with 17 cartridges that's not so bad. At any rate, this gun is easy to conceal, easy to carry, fun to shoot, and very affordable. A good investment and a wonderful addition to my collection! more

    this is my first weapon. for now this will be my daily CC. have shot springfield before and enjoyed the experience. i appreciate the safety being on the grip - one less thing to think about.. fired 150 rounds through it ...first time at range - about 90 for me and 60 for my wife alternating between the 2 of us.. my 90 were flawless. my wife had about 5 FTE. discovered wife has " limp wrist syndrome" :-) she'll work on that. when she shot a smaller weapon (sig p938) she had no issues. i did have an issue with Bud's. i placed the order and they were supposed to add $5 for the insurance. charge to the bank was place without the insurance charge which resulted in a delay in the order. when i phoned customer service they "allowed" me to put the $5 on my charge card without the 3{5317396483b7eab799413f19e526919f625847e30776d18b7fa26c0b972d03e6} charge fee (which would have amounted to 15 cents). better customer service would said "ok, our error - forget the $5". superior customer service would have done the above plus extra for their error. aside from that issue, everything else was peachy. more

    I bought this last week for my first gun purchase. I was on a budget between the $300-$400 budget. I was intending on getting a different gun but I seen this one. I felt it and it just felt real good in my hands. I got t...o shoot it today with 45 rounds and the trigger was smooth to me and just really love my gun. I'm glad I bought this one and would definitely recommend it to anyone especially if it's your first gun to own. more

    This is my first handgun purchase and I am delighted. I wanted a concealable handgun with decent ammo capacity. I got both with the XD9. Gun shoots well and fits into my hand perfectly. I'm impressed with the build q...uality and the safety features. The takedown on this firearm is very easy which makes maintenance and cleaning a breeze. Oh yeah... the price was right too. more

    I ordered the Springfield XD subcompact after shooting one my friend owned. I received it about two weeks ago and have already put about 400 rounds through it from three different ammo manufacturers without a single glit...ch. It's very accurate right out of the box, and easily puts a 2" group at 10 yards, and at 25 yards everything still hits center mass which is pretty good for a 3" barrel...it's far more accurate than I am! I don't know if I would carry this weapon concealed as it is a bit on the heavy side, but that is just personal preference, although there is not much to snag and with the 13 round mag it would be easily concealable. The extra weight keeps the muzzle jump down well, and it comes back to target quickly with double taps remaining on target. The trigger is smooth, and has a crisp release. Take down and cleaning is straight forward. I am very pleased with this purchase, and would highly recommend this for target shooting and fun at the range. more

    Get One!!
    I LOVE this pistol!! I bought an XD Subcompact in .40 S&W years ago and was immediately impressed with its reliability accuracy and ergonomics. So when I found the XD Subcompact in 9mm on sale a couple of years ago I... snagged one. Again I was extremely pleased with it. My only wish - not a complaint - was for the XD to be a little thinner since I'm not a big guy and carry in Florida. I thought Springfield answered my prayers when they came out with the XDs. Wrong! The XDs I have in 9mm is a big disappointment - nothing but problems. My pain was eased when PSA's Black Friday sale offered the XD 9mm Subcompact for $349 shipped. I'm just that way - if I REALLY like a gun I often buy a second one if the price is right. Once again after a quick field strip and lube before the first range trip my XD Subcompact from PSA performed flawlessly. It ate everything I fed it and when an old guy like me with bad near-vision can shoot the bullseye out of a target at 25 ft. you KNOW it's accurate! Since I LOVE the XD Subcompact I may even buy a third in 9mm! Or a 2nd in .40 S&W - make me an offer! Bottom line: If you're looking for something reasonably concealable that you can ABSOLUTELY trust your life with AND at price that won't break the bank THIS IS IT! more

    I picked up a friends 45 last year, & fell in love. When I went to buy my own back in Feb, I decided to go with the 9mm instead. Very accurate, very comfortable grip with the extended mag. I do not & will not use... steel casings for personal choice reasons so I cannot speak to them, but I have run probably a 1k rounds through it with various brass & aluminum cased ammo. Not 1 single FTF (fail to fire) Not 1 single FTE (fail to eject) with either ammo. It is a little more snug trying to conceal vs the thinner model, but still very doable. I love the double safety with the grip and trigger, & just it's over all look/feel/performance. Make no mistake about it, this is a very fine quality 9m for a very affordable price. more

    Great carry gun if you are willing to live with its shortcomings.
    PSA is offering these very reliable pistols at a superb price. I was given one of these lightly used by an old friend a few years back. They are reliable but have a slightly too heavy and spongy a trigger for my taste an...d a great light as possible trigger is a MUST for decent accuracy with a gun this size. You will find that you are "stuck" with the trigger provided as there simply doesn't exist the vast array of aftermarket trigger upgrades one can find for say the Glock 26 which by simply using a Glock 19 or even Glock 17 mag and an inexpensive "spacer" sleeve can easily provide you with a high capacity handgun that actually weighs less than this Springfield offering. I prefer my Gen3 Glock 26 with its Pyramid trigger which I can tweak to 3.25lb and that breaks like a tiny glass rod. The price is more but the groups are over twice as small as the best I can manage with this Springfield. At the price though as a "glove box" gun this may be a very good pistol and perhaps a good gunsmith can be found that is willing to try to improve the factory trigger that you are pretty much stuck with when buying this handgun. You won't cry long if you drop this bargain priced pistol into a lake not at the price PSA is offering them for. more

    Never an issue. no jams with any ammo
    Easily concealed. Well made. Accurate for a short gun. I have put junk ammo through it, hollow points, brass, aluminum case ammo, reloads, etc...it shot them all without a single jam. Pinkie extensions are cheap to add t...o mags if you have big hands. more

    Good deal
    Went to PSA for the daily deal...$369.Just thought it might be easier to conceal than my CZ P07 duty. Took it to the range and it ate everything it was fed. Trigger was nice. Been back to the range several times; it just... gets better. Sold the CZ! It was my favorite gun. Carry it in an Aliengear holster. Conceals well. Can't beat it for the price. PSA was super... more

    Value
    Own the 4 inch service model of this weapon. Bought this model for size not sacrifice load count. Gun is perfect in size has good weight. Function and fit are expected. The 4 inch service model mags are the same as the 1...6 round included less the plastic extension. Never bought a weapon from these guys before. I picked the place where I wanted it to go. Was going to follow up with PSA to see if recipient had FFL on file. Then I got an email saying it shipped the next day. I mean it was super simple no problems. Total turn around was 3 days. I just wanted to come back and let others know. If these pop up again get one. Love the weekend deals! more

    Great Pistol
    I love this pistol! I have been shooting since I was 5, and for the last almost 30 years I've owned several firearms of various calibers. My friend has been a die-hard Springfield guy for years, and so I bought this... to try them out. I've had it for a couple years now, and fired over 1000 rounds (of various brands) through it without a single issue. It is more accurate than my Sig; and a much better value-coming with a hard case, two mags, a holster, and mag holster! I took it out to the country to field test it last year, and while on an ATV I accidentally got mud all over it. As a true test of quality, I chambered and fired it-no problem! If you want a good reliable pistol for a good price, look no further more

    Great Firearm for the Money
    I am not going to lie this gun is almost the ugliest thing I have ever shot. It looks like you should be driving nails with it not defending yourself. It has 2 internal safety features, the grip and trigger safety. I am ...not too fond of safety features but honestly I could overlook these. Picking this up with an unloaded magazine it feels incredibly top heavy, but once you slide the 13 or 17 round magazine in, it completely balances out. I originally set out to buy a completely different gun, but walked out with this. Never thought I'd say I'm glad they didn't have that particular gun in stock, anyways I digress. So immediately after purchase we were headed to the range. I had ammo ranging from best to absolute worst. I decided to try out my cheap ammo first. First shot, boom dead center, second shot dead center, third shot right through the same hole. Now mind you I used the absolute cheapest ammo I could find and I never once had a failure to fire, or misfeed. Cleaning was almost like any other modern handgun, one pin, pull the trigger, slide the slide forward, done. Honestly this is the Toyota 4Runner of the firearms world. It is probably the ugliest thing you'll ever see, but man can it run. This handgun won't quit until you do. I trust this gun to fire with every pull of the trigger. more

    Love this gun!
    I bought the XD9 Sub-Compact last May. It has been an excellent carry weapon. It fits discreetly in my IWB holster without discomfort. As far as control is concerned its weight and grip seem to lend to accuracy. I have s...everal other 9mm pistols and tend to like this over them all (including my full size XD). Also Palmetto State Armory is definitely the place to buy! more

    Shoots great out of the box!
    I bought the 9mm a week ago, and finally got to put a few rounds through it, and the grouping was excellent, I am a little disappointed trying to carry it IOW, the width made it tight, but I can live with that. Would hig...hly recommend this weapon. more

    Tough as Nails
    I have owned the .40S&W model and now I own the 9mm model. Both are extremely accurate out of the box. The recoil is medium but manageable in .40 and mild in 9mm. I have cycled a ton of different ammo, brand and grad...e and have yet to have a failure to feed or failure to fire. The only complaint would be that it is a little front-heavy with the 13rd flush mag. Not much of a complaint, but worth mentioning. more

    I got this as a Christmas gift last year thinking that I would alternate between the XD and my Glock. I end up carrying this pretty much all the time now.

    Excellent gun Excellent value
    I recently bought the Springfield XD subcompact and couldn't be happier. I bought this gun as my new EDC. It has performed flawlessly through several hundred rounds of varying makes and types of ammo. The ergonomics... of this gun are outstanding. Points and feels very much like a 1911. This is my 3rd XD and I am absolutely sold on the quality. The fit and finish of this weapon is outstanding. There are zero machining marks on the slide and the fitment to the frame is nice and tight. Even though this gun has a 3" barrel, it is accurate and will shoot like a full size. Great Trigger! I looked at and shot several double stack 9mm's before choosing this gun, it seemed to outperform all of them. This pistol leaves the glock 26 in the dust. more

    Great pistol right out of the box
    Bought Spring Field XDSC 9mmand some ammo took it too the gun range ran 90 rounds through XDSC 9mm no jams no slide malfunctions . Easy to shoot with low felt recoil . Took pistol home cleaned and oiled pistol and next d...ay took it to the range and put another 160 rounds of inexpensive ball ammo through pistol again it fired flawlessly. The XdSc is a little heavy for concealed carry but its shorter barrel helps too keep it concealed . XDSC is great outside too wear on outside of the pants or inside the waist but IMHO it isn't a a pocket pistol...too heavy and little too thick . more

    I bought this gun for my Wife who is madly in love with it. We purchased several other guns that I still have that she did not like at all. (J frame revolver, LCP, baby glock) She shot inside the ten ring on her second m...agazine at 20 feet after she felt the recoil and mechanics. i want to buy one for myself now after shooting hers and plan to carry this OFF duty as she will once she gets her CCW. LOVE LOVE LOVE the Springfield guns. Thank You Buds for selling this at a very competitive price. I seriously will not buy guns anywhere else. Golden State Tactical makes the paperwork process so simple and straight forward. All around 100{8ce50a41b05a76a8bbaf87b8726b54798cfccd19f204d601ac717157d3617cfc} satisfaction once again. more

Only complaint is that it came with just one magazine; however..., considering the price I paid I guess I can't complain too much. Bought two extra mags from the dealer and and I'm still a happy Bud's customer. This is the third gun I've bought from them, and I've been happy each time. more

    I switched to this 3" version for concealed carry from my 4" inch version. Much to my surprise, the difference is night and day. For experienced XD owners, the story is the same. For new owners to the XD models, there is... a lot that makes this gun a good concealed carry. The safety is the biggest selling point for those with small children or are scared of accidental discharges from a dropped weapon. A round cannot be chambered taking the slide back unless the backstrap safety is engaged. And a round cannot be fired unless the backstrap safety is engaged. Besides the polymer frame, the XD models are made of all steel parts. In my opinion, this has an advantage over other pistols who might use plastic parts inside the slide. I ordered this pistol during the hectic holiday season. It took about 3 weeks with the increased ordering. This is the second firearm I have purchased from Bud's. more

The takedown of this firearm is very simple and quick, disassembling the slide is slightl...y difficult but doesn't need done often. The gun fires superbly handling any ammo I put through it. I've put close to 1000 rounds through from white box to gold dots without a single malfuntion. The trigger is smooth as can be with a clean break. I will highly recommend this pistol for anyone intrested. more

It's small e...nough that I can carry it in a fanny pack while riding bicycles with my wife yet it packs a big puch with its included extended magazine. Fit and finish is excellent.

    Excellent firearm. The pistol left Bud's via UPS the next day after I ordered it. After I picked it up from my FFL, I took it to the mountains to do some shooting with my son. I put 100 rds through it right out of the bo...x. I've shot 9mm, 40 and 45 subcompacts before, but the XD9 was by far the easiest to shoot. There's a sharp, but short recoil that seems to put the sights right back where you left them. Double taps were no problem for me. I'm a former Marine pistol expert, but I don't do a lot of shooting anymore. I was able to keep a 3" group at 10 yards. Later, I stepped back to 30 yards and was able to keep all 15 rounds in a 12x12 target. more

    Bought this for my wife because she fell in love with shooting an XD Sub-Compact 9mm at range. She tried other small 9mms but the weight of the competitors makes it very unpleasant to shoot. The weight of this XD is perf...ectly balanced to minimize recoil for follow up shots. We've put about 200 rounds through it and not a single one has jammed or failed to eject. It's very easy to break down and clean, much easier than my brother-in-law's Glock, and my friend's Taurus 24/7 Pro. I admit that I want one of my own, but I'm looking at a full size XD in .45 ACP. The only complaint I had was that it took a week to ship from Bud's. I did contact them after about 3-4 days and they were very helpful and said they'd put a rush in it for me. The next day it shipped, unfortunately it was on a Friday, but I received the gun that following Tuesday. I don't blame Bud's because earlier in 2011 people were worried about sudden gun control due to the Loughner shooting, so I understand that their demand for sales was high enough to delay shipping. I will return to Bud's for many more guns! more

I find it a slight bit top heavy, but overall it's great. The trigger saft...y is a well designed product. this was my first purchase through Bud's and won't be my last. Great price, service & products. more
