It isn't often that a product announcement catches me off guard, but that is exactly what happened when the Springfield XD-E Langdon Tactical Edition was announced.

Renowned Beretta nerd, Ernest Langdon, stepped out of his comfort zone and looked beyond the Beretta line for the fifth firearm to get Ernest's special sauce. He says that because the Springfield XD-E is the only viable single stack DA/SA pistol on the market, it was the only obvious choice.

The base Springfield XD-E is outfitted in a very similar fashion to the PX4 Carry and PX4 Compact Carry with a Sniper Gray Cerikoted slide, LTT Trigger Job, and a lower profile hammer.

Langdon Tactical's upgraded Springfield XD-E carries an MSRP of $738. You can find more information on it and the rest of the outstanding LTT guns on the Langdon Tactical website.

More from Langdon Tactical:

Springfield Armory's XD-E is the only viable DA/SA single-stack on the market.  Reliability and safety are the two major advantages of this action type, but rarely are they an option in a single-stack 9mm.  Lesser-trained shooters may struggle with learning two trigger modes, but Langdon Tactical has found a way to lessen the learning curve by enhancing the trigger and action.  Introducing the Springfield Armory XD-E Langdon Tactical Edition.

Like the Langdon Tactical Beretta 92s and PX4s, the Langdon Tactical Edition XD-E features greatly enhanced trigger feel and performance without sacrificing safety or reliability.  Improvements made by Langdon Tactical on the Springfield Armory XD-E have also further enhanced Springfield Armory's Low Effort Slide by reducing effort needed to rack the slide and cock the hammer even further.

The Springfield Armory XD-E upgraded by LTT includes:

    • LTT emblem engraved on Sniper Gray Cerakoted slide
    • LTT Trigger Job with the option of a 12lbs. or 12.7lbs. hammer spring
      • 20% reduction in pull weight with a 12.7 lbs. spring for reliability with US and NATO-spec ammunition.
      • 25% reduction in pull weight with a 12 lbs. spring provides reliability with US-Spec ammunition.
    • New low-profile hammer for better concealment and snag-free draws 
    • Two 8- and one 9-round magazine included.
    • Option of two different hammer spring weights. 
    • Upgraded Ameriglo CAP Sights.

MSRP: $738
