Default Xdm- 9, ss

I have approx 800 rds through my 4.5" model. Very reliable and I fired over 500 before doing any real maintenance. (just snake the barrel.)

I don't like the 4.5" barrel. The 5.25" w adj sights n fiber optic front is the way
to go. Colt Govt is 5" and IMHO 5" is just right. Cost fortune to upgrade my XDMs sights to 5.25s configuration. Adj sights won't even be milled into slide.

Range: how you grip the pistol can change POI more than you would suspect. Higher lines -wee bit more flip. Took me some time to warm up to it.

Custom shop can shrink groups by half. I talked to some of their CS staff.

I found that holding a "deeper" grip on the XDM, wrapping my hand further around, increased my accuracy.

Has anyone here held both the 9mm compact and the .45 compact version? If so how much difference do you have in the grip?

Very first shot using the shorter magazine at 7yds. Not bad in my opinion.
