    Maybe it was an accident, but don't you have this same question posted already?

    Just in case, i will answer again. They are fine pistols for the price, very reliable, excellent accuracy (shooter may vary), and it feels great in the hand.

    Perhaps they have been more available on the primary market and are now flooding the secondary market?

    I have multiple XDM's, XD's and one XDS9mm. I had an XDS45 and traded it. The only reason is the XDS45 was a bit stiff on my finger and shoulder. I absolutely love the XDS9mm and use it for my primary carry now. I'd buy any SA and be glad to have it.

    Thanks, I think the 3.8 XDM or the XDS will be my next purchase. I had Ryan Burick mirror finish the barrel and guide rod on mine. He does an excellent job with free lifetime touch ups.

    You can't go wrong with the xds9 or the 3.8. I have both. I now use the xds for cc.

    Excuse me fellas Glock guy here:).....the reason is because everyone is switching to Glock!!!...just joking, no seriously, I want a xdm 3.8 too but I want the .45 version. Are the xdm's more than the xd's? why?

    Can't say what the reason would be but I have an xdm40 and would never consider selling it. I also just purchased an xds9, my best friend has an xd45 and an xdm9. We both love them. If you are seeing a lot of people selling them it could be a good thing for you, if you can find what your looking for used for a good price, I'd say pick it up, really don't have to worry about it being used since springfield has a lifetime warranty

    Yes the xdm is more than the xd, usually by around $50 - $100, because the xdm has some added features, though I love the xdm I don't know that the added features are worth the extra cash, all personal preference I guess

    Since I just sold 2 XDM's, maybe I could tell some reasons. I bought 3 Glocks in their place for two major reasons:

    1) Holsters (duty, light-bearing, competition, etc.) are much harder to locate for XDM. The assortment and availability for Glock holsters is FAR superior.

    2) The availability of spare parts is almost nonexistent for the XDM. When it comes to putting together an arsenal for SHTF, the Glock is, again, far superior. I can get every part in multiples for a Glock without really trying. Finding spare parts for my XDM is really tough. For example, go looking for a recoil spring for a 45acp 4.5" XDM. I dare you...

    The XDM is a superior pistol (IMHO) with a great trigger and great ergos. But the Glock is much easier to live with. That's why I sold 2 XDM's for 3 Glocks.

    Only reason I could think of was folks rebelling against an American co selling a non-American made product...but I doubt it...but they are a bit higher priced then some other options...
    One Guy at our range sold his .45 XDs because the recoil was much more noticeable then any of his 1911's...one of the RSO's bought it from him and now carries it as his "at work" gun....

    A lot of people bought them when they first came out as an anti-Glock. Now that they've had them for a while, the luster has worn off as they are large and heavy and are replacing them with something smaller and lighter like a Glock 30S or XDS .45/9 or Shield 9.

    ^^THIS^^

    Funny how Glock never has to advertise, but when Springfield FLOODED the market with ads for the M-Factor, sales rose quite high. I totally agree with DenverSteve!
