Springfield Armory is jumping into the Crayola box with a new Desert FDE version of the Croatian-made XD-M Elite 4.5″ OSP 10mm. The pistol itself is interesting, being an optics-ready 16+1 round 10mm, and isn’t that expensive, with an MSRP of $695– a figure likely to be closer to $599 at your local retailer.
Next up are Gray, OD Green, and Desert FDE variants of the company’s Saint Victor 5.56 NATO carbines. All use the same direct-impingement mid-gas 16-inch barrel format with a 15-inch free-floating M-LOK handguard.
They also have the same trigger, BCG, and flip-up sights. The only difference between the three is in their Magpul furniture which is (stop if you heard this already) in Gray, OD Green, and Desert FDE. Price is $1,172, suggested.
