They tend to have reallllly big fat grips and are harder to control firing. They also tend to have issues with magazine problems. Weight is a huge factor.
The xdm has none of these tendencies and is a damn accurate ultra reliable fast shooting handgun.
Just because its a 1911 pattern doesn't mean its problem free. There is a big reason colt and springfield have never bothered doubling up a 1911. The platform just doesn't lend itself to that style.
Just giving my perspective. I also have two xdm one compact one 4.5 both in 45acp.
Not all double stack 1911 are bad or junk they just tend that direction. Means your chances of getting a bad one are somewhat higher. But the xdm gives a regular single stack a hard time and is just a better all round gun than any double stack 1911.
I've owned them before and the xdm beats em no question.
Do what ya want just giving my opinion and experience
