The XD-S Mod.2 in 9mm features upgrades chosen to perfect the pistol for concealed carry, the tactical-rack serrated rear sight provides the added benefit of being able to rack the slide against available surfaces such as a belt, doorway, boot etc. should it become necessary to cycle the gun one-handed. The enhanced grip texturing allows for a secure yet comfortable grip, and the new, longer Posi-Wedge slide serrations make the slide easier to grab and operate. A loaded chamber indicator allows shooters to not only see the condition of the gun, but to feel the condition of the gun when it's placed in a holster, or in darkness and low-light. A newly designed grip safety immediately readies the gun to fire when gripped, but keeps the gun safe from firing during appendix or off-body carry. An additional drop safety in the striker block, in conjunction with the grip safety, prevents the gun from firing if dropped. The XD-S Mod.2 frame positions a shooter's grip higher on the gun, closer to the bore axis, for better recoil control and accuracy. Coupled with the dual captive recoil spring and full length guide rod, the XD-S Mod.2 in 9mm is soft shooting and well-balanced. An enhanced short reset trigger makes for fast, controllable follow up shots. The XD-S Mod.2 ships with two stainless steel magazines: a 7-round mag with a pinkie rest and additional flush floor plate for carry and one 9-round extended magazine - perfect for home defense.
