    Based on the original polymer-framed Springfield XD released in 2001, this pistol is a recoil-operated, striker-fired semi-automatic that’s manufactured in Croatia.

    In 2008, the company introduced the XD-M models featuring match-grade barrels, a modified slide profile and a reconfigured grip frame with interchangeable backstraps.

    The XD-M Elite series arrived in 2020 featuring the company’s Match Enhanced Trigger Assembly (META) system.

    It’s a more refined trigger with a flat-faced profile, integral blade safety and a built-in overtravel stop.

    A total of five Elite double-stack 9 mm models are currently available, with the XD-M Elite 3.8″ Compact version offering the smallest profile of the series.

    I’ve handled a fair share of polymer-frame, striker-fired 9 mm pistols, and they each have their advantages.

    But what always stands out with the XD-M models when I pick them up is how solidly built they feel.

    There is an authoritative heft to them, a clear sense of sturdiness to the polymer frame and weight to the forged steel slide that says these guns are intended to be used regularly, not just admired.

    The Elite Compact weighs in at 27.4 oz., unloaded and balances nicely. I’m not saying the pistol feels heavy, because it doesn’t.

    But it does look and feel more solidly built than some carry options in this class.
