Picked this up this weekend at a gun show. Already shot 100 rounds on the range and love it so far.

padre, looks just like mine! i know what you mean, they are sweet shooting pistols. i have owned many different brands of pistols and have shot many different one in 40, and the XDm has got to be one of my favorites. the only other one better than the SA XDm is the Sig in 40. but much pricier. BTW, how much did it end up costing?

Congrats man I love mine also! :D

Mine's a 9mm 4.5", but I remember when I opened my box like that for the first time...such a thing of beauty! Enjoy!

I have one as well. Very reliable but accuracy was just ok until 600-700 rds then it started to shoot well. would love to get adj sights and fiber optic front of 5.25 - be $$$. But that's what the custom shop is for.

I got the 4.5" barrel and freakin love it! XDM is a great company and make some great items. Mine was about 650$ at my local gun shop. Nice piece padre24! Happy shooting

I guess I'm the only one who would prefer the 5.25 - built in adj. sights ($250) fiber optic front ($50) and they allegedly improved the trigger plus slide to frame fit a bit. In IPSC, I used a Colt and SW 686 w 6" and the longer sight radius helped me shoot better.

I have never understood while SA went w 4.5" for their XDM line ? Any ideas ?

I am one who would prefer the 5.25 when I get an XDM. I don't understand your statement. The XDM is available in 5.25? Confused.

Springfield Armory makes the XDm series of pistols. Lots of variations of barrel length and caliber. The 5.25" barrels are available, but more costly with a couple of the "options" delivered as standard. The plain vanilla XDm is around a 4.5" barrel. They also make a compact at 3.8" barrel (like my 9mm).
