In ammunition and firearm factories, they have 2 different types of assembly lines.. one assembly line is standard which has standard quality control processes and standard workers.. the other is match, this means that it is held to a higher quality control standard and the workers typically have a higher skill level and given more time to complete the products.. basically match means that the product is constructed with a greater care

you sure one isnt an xd not an xdm. xdm are shipped with match grade barrels xd do not have them. however no one seems to know EXACTLY what makes it match grade other than the stamping.

i wouldnt worry about it.
