Two staples within the Springfield Armory handgun line-up are their micro-compact Hellcat for everyday carry (EDC) as well as their full-frame XD-M (Xtreme Duty Match). While they can be likened to each like a big-little brother relationship, if you were ever in the market for a threaded barrel for either of them, you had to go swimming in the aftermarket parts world to hopefully find one with a good fitment. Now, Springfield Armory is offering XD-M threaded barrels for their 4.5″ models and Hellcat threaded barrels for their standard 3″ offering.

Hellcat threaded barrels

If you have any of the cartridge offerings in a 4.5″ XD-M pistol and have been wanting a threaded barrel, you are in luck. Springfield Armory is now selling threaded barrels for their 9mm, 10mm, and .45 ACP XD-M handguns. Also, for any concealed carry advocates toting the standard 3″ Hellcat, they have you covered there as well. The MSRP pricing and webstore links for those barrels are listed below:

New from Springfield Armory® are OEM drop-in barrel upgrades for the ever-popular Hellcat® 9mm and XD-M® 4.5” striker-fired handguns.

Designed for factory fitment, the 9mm, 10mm and .45 ACP threaded barrels for the XD-M 4.5″ model are hammer forged and finished in Melonite® for unmatched durability. A thread protector is included for when a muzzle device is not present.

Also available is a 3.8″ threaded barrel and compensator kit for Hellcat 3″ Micro-Compact handguns. The barrel comes packaged with a Self-Indexing Compensator that reduces felt recoil for faster follow up shots.
