HS Produkt (formerly I.M. Metal) manufactures these weapons in the city of Ozalj, Croatia and then licenses and sells the weapons in the US by Springfield Armory.
The Springfield Armory XD (X-Treme Duty) series of pistols are magazine fed, striker-fired, polymer-framed, semi-automatic handguns. Each premium handgun features an Ultra Safety Assurance (USA)Trigger System, double-stack high-capacity magazines, a 1911-style grip safety, a loaded chamber indicator, ambidextrous magazine release buttons, striker status indicator, and accessory rail.
Springfield Armory exclusively offers the XD to the US market in five different calibers: 9x19 mm, .357 SIG, .40 S&W, .45 GAP, and .45 ACP. Additionally, five primary models are available including a Compact version with a 4" barrel, a Sub-Compact model with a 3" barrel, a Tactical model with a 5" barrel, a Service model with a 4" barrel and a Ported V-10 model with a 4" barrel and upward-facing custom ports on the XD's slide to reduce muzzle rise and soften recoil. All five models in the XD line of weapons are available in one of four quality finishes: Black, Bi-Tone, OD Green, US Mil-Spec Flat Dark Earth (tan) and Black.
