take down on the xdmc is incredibly easy. There's very little difference in size... I love my xdmc

XDm compact has 3.8" match grade barre. Changeable backstraps and extra contouring in the grip. 13 or 19 round mag, 19 has grip extension. 27 ounces.

XDsubcompact has 3.1" barrel. 10 or 13 round mag. 21 ounces.

I have the XDm 3.8" full size grip and love it. Haven't shot the other two models mentioned above.

I think the XDm has a heavy duty guide rod spring and a shorter reset on the trigger as well.

So the XDm is probably worth the extra $$. I am leaning towards Springfield because of the backstrap safety like the 1911 in a small(ish) gun. Otherwise it looks like the only other option is the "warthog". But This will be my first pistol and cost is a factor.

I think the XDm is worth it. Unless you want the smallest version. An XD sub has a 3.1 barrel and a XDm compact has a 3.8 barrel. I think the XDm compact is a great pistol with it's full size grip/compact grip being interchangable and the barrel long enough for range use.

I have a regular 40 cal xDm and I love the thing it's one of my favorites to take to the range. Shoots great and just as smooth as glass it will eat anything and I have had no problems. Great gun. I like it better than my old glock 23c. I'm gonna make it my duty gun when I can find a holster I like for it. And put my 1911 back in the safe. I like the higher capacity mags

play the victim, be the victim

XDm's aren't that expensive anymore. Look around and they can be found for $500-600 new.

I think it's worth the extra $100 over the xd's.

XDM's are worth the extra money. Like you, I was attracted to the XD/XDM line by the grip safety. It gives a little comfort when holstering. If you don't have the grip squeezed, then even if the trigger got caught on some thread or broken kydex or who knows what, the gun cannot fire.
