Default New XDm in .45 ACP

I hear that Springfield is actually going to release a new .45 XDm. Apparently this rumor has gone around for some time but now it looks like a go (according to some SHOT show pics I've seen).
I was planning on buying a .45 compact but may just wait to see how the XDm looks (no to mention I'm having trouble finding one that I want). I usually carry a XD .40 service model so I like the medium size.
Anyone as excited as I am?

Not sure what the big deal is myself. My XD .45 Compact is about the perfect poly weapon. If I want match grade in a .45 - I'll use one of my 1911s...

I'm with you MGIB. I'm just having a hard time finding a XD compact bi-tone that is green or brown. I can't help but think when the XDm comes out it will be easier for me to find exactly what I want. I think I'd still rather have the compact but they seem to be pretty scarce. Any suggestions?

SA definitely will release the XDM45 as I just purchased the XDM40. That tends to be my luck. Now how to convince the wife that I need to get a second one?

Don't tell her! Just don't take both of them out of the safe at the same time.

I shot the XD and S&W M&P today in .40 and .45. I liked the XD45 best of the four. I was planning on making this my next purchase, but I've read so many good thins about the XDm (particularly in .40). I think I'm going to wait for the XDm in .45 before making my final decision.

Any idea when this release is scheduled?

I don't think it's "scheduled" at all. Maybe they'll announce something by summer, who knows?

I would be excited if .45 was legal here lol


But I would kill for the chance to get a 5" XDm. Not holding my breath though
