The AUTHENTIC.460 ROWLAND Conversion for the Great Springfield Armory XD-45, (offered by .460 ROWLAND LLC), includes:
- premium ported, stainless steel .460 Rowland custom barrel
- or the screw-on compensated virsion
Note: The barrel extends approximately 3/4 inch beyond the slide. And the fully ported version extends the gun about 1.5″ and after lengthy experimentation we have found the stock spring tension to be optimal for these great new polymer guns.
Specs for the XD-45 are based on the pre-modified pistol. The above mentioned diminutional changes are the only difference.
In 1794, the armory began the manufacture of muskets for a young country.
For the next 150 years, Sprigfield Armory functioned as a supplier for every major American conflict as well as a “think tank” for new firearms concepts. In 1968, citing budgetary concerns, the U.S. Government closed the Armory.
In 1974, a passionate family by the name of Reese would rescue not only the name “Springfield Armory,” but the philosophy that drove it for centuries.
With reverence for the legacy of the Armory, the Reese family resurrected the most historically significant designs produced by the Armory and fueled by the same obsession for improved manufacturing techniques and cutting edge design that inspired the likes of John C. Garand, they’ve continued to develop products that are loyal to Springfield’s heritage while ensuring the Armory’s place in the progression of American firearms.
