    very pleased. Cant wait to take it to the range. Question: How do you remove the back strap in order to change them out?

    Read the manual, page 22 says to use a 3/32" punch to drift the roll pin out the bottom of the grip. Use care to not damage the insert as the pin is in there tight. I found the medium insert that is already installed to be the most comfortable, but you should still try all three to se what works best for you.

    You should download the manual online from Springfield. It's important to give it a once over every time you get a new gun. Those panels have to be inserted at a 45 degree angle in order to seat properly. Now hurry up and get some trigger time! I love my XDM and you will too.
