There are some tools so basic, you can’t imagine being without them.
But even essential tools can be refined and improved.
That’s the principle behind the new XD-E™ the best elements of the world-renowned XD® Series, condensed into a weapon so intuitive, comfortable and accurate, you can’t imagine being without it.
The low-effort slide practically racks itself, so handling’s a pleasure.
The exposed hammer clearly shows gun mode, and the single/double action trigger shows respect for your shooting style, unlike other compacts.
New shooter or skilled gunner, wrap your mitt around the new
XD-E™ and you’ll know. This is more than a hammer.
It redefines what your hammer should be.
