SP XDm, XDmO and 1911 .22 conv.
First time I have had the .22 out in ages. Figured I'd shoot it along with the SP build and XDmO.

25m, offhand, five shot strings, slow/steady cadence of fire:
SP XDm; Red circle 115jhp AAA, red square 147jhp AAA
XDmO; Green circle 147, sq 115
1911 .22; yellow

Springer Precision XDm has the Barsto, trigger work and F/O sights, XDmO(w/ optic) is stock. All the ammo was Atlanta Arms Ammo in 147 or 115jhp.

SP build is much easier for me to shoot well. Every now and again I will jack a shot but it is usually easy to call it when that happens. 115jhp from AAA always seems to print about 3-4" above POA.

Trigger on the XDmO kicks my ass.

Ammo for the .22 was Fiocchi sm340.

Very, very nice.

Good groupings.

You get 20 cool points. :cool:

Agreed. Very cool, good report and good shooting.

Here is a tgt that was shot with the original barrel(yellow) and then about a week later after the barsto barrel(red) was installed by SP. The XDm also has fiber optic sights and a 4# trigger, they were done when the pistol was purchased from SP.

This was 25yds, off sand bags w/ 124+P Gold Dot:

The low shots w/ the barsto installed were the first shot from the magazine for each string. I'm not sure if this was caused by me(wanting to see the poi for the first shot) or a characteristic of the pistol. Maybe a combo of both.

I have over 1500rds through the pistol since the above photo was taken, I may try another set of groups with the 124+P GD.
