It is difficult to unload a full mag, BUT, if you do it just a few times, it loosens up quickly. You need a strong thumb, though.
I read a post by a guy on another forum who was incensed by this, demanded SA fix this horrible problem, blah, blah blah...
My XDm reminds me of a phazer on Star trek. Low recoil, high accuracy, and the 16 round capacity is impressive. To me, this is as close to an "assault pistol" as you can buy out of the box.
The grips is not all that large - like the others said, it's mag length, not width.
I really like the grip safety - that is key to me.
