The Perfect DA/SA Single-Stack? Langdon Tactical’s Springfield XD-E

2 min read

The XD-E is built by Springfield Armory and improved by Langdon Tactical. The XDE is the only viable DA/SA single stack gun on the market right now that give you an ultra-thin, concealable DA/SA conceal Carry option with several upgrades for better shoot-ability.

LTT has decreased the XD-E double action by over 2lbs bringing the DA to around 8 lb and the SA to 4-4.5 lbs.

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.

Here is your basic XD-E from Graham Baates:

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.
