Springfield Armory XDM

For the last few years, DefenseReview has received some pretty glowing feedback on the Springfield Armory XD45 (eXtreme Duty 45) .45 ACP pistol. One of the primary aspects of the XD45 pistol that the professionals we've interviewed appreciate is its fully-supported chamber which allows them to fire high-pressure +P and/or +P+ ammunition through it, which they can't do through a Glock 21 (G21) / Glock 21SF (G21SF) or Glock 30 (G30) / Glock 30SF (G30SF) .45 ACP pistols, since they do not have fully-supported chambers. One of these rounds is the LeMas Ltd. BMT APLP 85-grain (85gr) .45 CQB round, which has a muzzle velocity of well over 2,000 FPS out of a 5-inch (5") Government Model 1911 pistol, and will penetrate NIJ Level IIIA body armor (bullet-resistant vest) with no problem and devastate the tissue immediately behind it. "BMT APLP" stands for "Blended Metal Technology Armor-Piercing Limited-Penetration".

The reason we bring all this up is that we recently read about the new Springfield Armory XD(M) .40 S&W pistol a.k.a. Springfield Armory eXtreme Duty Mega-Capacity/M-factor .40S&W pistol (a.k.a. Springfield Armory XDM or Springfield XDM pistol, for short), which holds an impressive 16+1 rounds thanks to its "Mega-Capacity Magazine" and sports a "Minimal Reset Trigger" (quick-reset trigger) that, according to the marketing literature,... "has the shortest travel than any currently available polymer pistol along with a similarly short reset which keeps you on target with greater ease for faster, more accurate follow-up shots." Grammatical errors aside (the sentence should read "has the shortest travel of any currently available...") Springfield Armory would appear to be saying that the XD-M pistol has a shorter-travel, shorter/quicker-reset trigger than the trigger on Glock pistols.
The Springfield XD(M) pistol's trigger's short travel and reset, by themselves, are a big deal if they're as good as the company's literature suggests, as they would assist in making a fast initial shot (first shot) and quick/fast follow-up shots and rapid and accurate multi-shot strings. DefenseReview's favorite polymer pistol trigger at present is the Glock trigger, which has a relatively short initial travel and very short reset. It's tough to beat. However, we're going to give the XDM's trigger an honest shot at the title in a side-by-side test, as soon as we can.
But that's not all the Springfield XDM .40 S&W pistol has going for it. It also features a match-grade barrel that "rivals aerospace manufacturing", "Model Contour" frame with more ergonomic grip with "Mega-Lock" texturing and interchangeable "Mould-Tru Backstraps", a more contoured Melonite-coated slide (for corrosion/rust resistance) with "Major Grasp Slide Serrations", "Main-Focus Sights", ambidextrous "Maximum Reach Magazine Release" buttons, "Minimal Error Disassembly" takedown lever, a loaded chamber indicator, a striker status indicator, an Ultra Safety Assurance (USA) trigger safety, grip safety, and "Multi-Adjust Rail System" Mil-Std-1913 "Picatinny" rail on the dust cover for mounting tactical white lights, targeting lasers, etc. The Springfield XDM pistol comes with 16-shot magazines and a slick polymer carrying case.
Long story short, the Springfield XDM .40 S&W pistol basically appears to be a "new and improved" version of the standard Springfield XD pistol, so it will be interesting to see how long Springfield Armory keeps the standard XD pistol series around. We're predicting that they will eventually discontinue it if sales of the new Springfield XD-M pistol series significantly outpaces standard XD sales. Since the XD(M) is a newer, cooler, more feature-rich, modernized version of the XD, DefRev doesn't see why this wouldn't happen, once 9mm Parabellum (9x19mm NATO) and .45 ACP versions of the XD(M) pistol are introduced.
Defense Review is curious as to when .45 ACP versions (standard, compact, subcompact, etc.) of the Springfield Armory XD-M pistol will be introduced. We're particularly interested in a compact or sub-compact XDM .45 for concealed carry (CCW) use, and to see how many rounds it/they will carry. Frankly, we're also interested to see how many rounds the 9mm versions will carry. If the standard/duty-size .40S&W XD(M) carries 16+1, a standard/duty-size 9mm XD(M) pistol should carry at least 18+1 rounds, and a compact 9mm XD(M) should be able to hold 16+1 rounds (we're guessing).
DefenseReview isn't a big fan of grip safeties in general, and we're not making an exception for the XD(M). Frankly, we see the 1911-style rear-mounted grip safety as an antiquated solution to a non-existent problem (even on 1911 pistols), and something that is, in general, better for lawyers than shooters. Our Glocks (Glock 19, Glock 30, etc.) don't have them, so why does the XD need it? As long as you have an internal safety that prevents the pistol from firing if it's dropped and you keep your finger outside the trigger guard until you decide to fire, that should be enough, even on a weapon with no external safety. Don't forget, the XD(M) has a trigger safety, just like the Glock. If you absolutely have to have a grip safety, we'd prefer either a Beretta PM12S2 (also written as PM12 S2 and PM 12 S2) 9mm open-bolt submachine gun-style front-grip-mounted safety or Heckler & Koch (HK) P7 (P7M8 and P7M13) 9mm pistol-style squeeze-cocker safety that comprises the whole front strap. A front-grip-mounted grip safety lever is not as dependent on the shooters grip, and therefore easier to actuate/disengage each time, every time the shooter grips and fires the weapon. That said (or written), we have always found the XD's grip to be very comfortable and ergonomic.
Another option, and one we'd like to see, is a 1911 pistol-style frame-mounted, sweep-down manual thumb safety. If Springfield Armory offers .45ACP, .40 S&W, and/or 9mm XD(M) pistols with said thumb safety, they should at least remove the grip safety on these versions if they're not willing to remove it on all versions of the XD(M) and XD pistols. In our opinion, if a pistol has a manual thumb safety and/or any internal safety that precludes the gun from firing unless the trigger is pulled, a grip safety is redundant and unnecessary. Smith & Wesson is currently offering a frame-mounted, sweep-down manual thumb safety on the S&W M&P45 pistol as an option.
DefRev also doesn't see the necessity of an ambidextrous mag-release button, since a right-handed shooter can easily actuate a left-side-mounted mag release button with the index finger of his/her left hand when shooting left-handed. Same goes for lefties. That written, we don't mind the ambidextrous mag release button, provided it's well-designed. We'll see.
Except for the rear grip safety, the Springfield XD(M) pistol looks good in the all-black version (we don't like bright/shiny slides), and we'd very much like to get our hands on an all-black (Melonite slide) .45 ACP version for testing, soon, preferably a compact model that's the same size as the Springfield XD45 Compact .45 ACP pistol. When we do, we'll run it with SLiP2000 Extreme Weapons Lubricant (EWL), which we recently received from Greg Conner, President of SPS Marketing, Inc. We had the pleasure of meeting Greg at his booth in the exhibition hall at NDIA International Infantry & Joint Services Small Arms Systems Symposium 2008. Nice guy.
A quick note on the .40 S&W cartridge: The .40 S&W is a good defensive pistol cartridge, but DefRev falls into the "nine is fine" crowd. With quality hollowpoint ammo, 9mm will get the job done just fine (with proper shot placement). 9mm is even more effective against live tissue with specialty ammo like LeMas ammo. Even with round nose (non-hollowpoint) ammo, 9mm can put the target down quickly as long as you hit said target in a vital area (head, chest, or groin), particularly if you hit the target with fast multiple shots. And, you have more immediate firepower at your disposal with which to do it. Typically, you get two more 9mm rounds than .40 S&W rounds in the magazine in a given pistol/magazine size. 9mm is also easier to train with on several levels: It's easier on your wrist(s), easier to hit with during rapid-fire strings/fast-shooting drills, and easier on your wallet. A cartridge that's more comfortable to shoot and cheaper to purchase will allow you to do more shooting, and more practice means greater proficiency, so you can place those shots well when it counts.
The 9mm Parabellum cartridge is also arguably inherently more reliable than .40 S&W and .45 ACP, due to the combination of its smaller-diameter bullet and proportionately longer, tapered case, which aids in feeding the round into the chamber and extracting it from the chamber. Now, if we're going to move up in caliber from 9mm to a larger-diameter bullet, we'd prefer to go right to .45 ACP. However, there are those who will argue that .40 S&W is the ideal defensive pistol cartridge, giving you larger surface area and more power than the 9mm, and higher capacity and better penetration against hard/intermediate targets vs. the .45 ACP.

yep. its nice. never fired one but held two or three. felt real solid (like the origional xd). i just wish they offered it in .45, im sure they will in time. i dont like the fact that they charge a couple hundred more for it though. i know it has a better quality barrel, but the rest of the improvements are really low cost. oh well, they gotta make money somehow. nice gun though

Everybody is buying guns since jan'09. Handgun ammos are hard to find. Buying guns here nowadays is like buying shoes on sale. Today you might find the gun that you wanted and if you don't buy it right away, tomorrow it will be sold already, same with ammos. Compared to 10 mos.ago it was slow, im always going to the gunstore, salesmen even keep on convincing me to buy a gun. But now they are really busy.
I think pricewise it will be reasonable. The store that i usually go to are cheaper by 100 bucks compared to other stores. Xd9 price is $522. S.A. TRP price is only $1300 to them. Xdm is not available yet.

xd reset

yes. the xdm has "minimal reset trigger", similar to sig's "short reset trigger" I know for a fact that you can change the reset on sigs, so i'm sure you could do the same with the xd. you might need a gun smith though.

My XD .45

My Springfeild Armory XD .45 is my favorite pistol. If they found a way to make it better than Id love to test it out. As far as the grip safety goes, it might be over kill but I dont have a problem with it.

If you feel threatend, SHOOT!

Did anyone know this before:

Horace Smith and Daniel B. Wesson came from old New England families. Horace learned the firearms trade while working at the National Armory in Springfield, Massachusetts. Daniel’s experience came from apprenticing with his brother Edwin Wesson, the leading maker of target rifles and pistols in the 1840s. *

An historic connection between rival gun manufacturers. Go figure. I thought it was interesting.

But from all I have heard it is tough as nails. It is a 2 part epoxy mix.
Check with some of the other members and someone has used it.

Glocks +P

This statement concerning the Glock models isn't correct.

http://www.gunslot.com/type/semi-auto

"One of the primary aspects of the XD45 pistol that the professionals we've interviewed appreciate is its fully-supported chamber which allows them to fire high-pressure +P and/or +P+ ammunition through it, which they can't do through a Glock 21 (G21) / Glock 21SF (G21SF) or Glock 30 (G30) / Glock 30SF (G30SF) .45 ACP pistols, since they do not have fully-supported chambers"

That warning applies only to 40 S&W as the dynamics (case web strength) are entirely different with the 45 acp+P. If there was a concern with the 45 acp+P, we would state it right on the web site. Thanks.

I am gonna have to

try one on for size. This looks like it could solve my Glock dilemma that I have mentioned in other posts. I am gonna hit up the local firing range to test drive one of these. Let's see if this one has an appetite for human hands. Those Glocks sure do and don't hesitate to take a nip at the web of your thumb when you aren't paying attention. Sorry Glock Lovers, I am not a big fan, but I will say that they are quality built weapons. Just not for me. Does anyone know how much the XDm40 weighs? My PT-92 gets heavy after a while and is too large for conceal carry.

I love the XDs and all the feedback from Marines, police, and sheriff deputies points to the XD being an awesome gun way above glocks potential, and I agree I've never liked glocks they always felt so weird but the XD works for me. Plus I believe I heard a rumor that the Pennsylvania State troopers were going to the XD, from 1911s I think.

XDM 9

I went to a gun show today and bought a new XDM 9. (all black) Price paid $595. Tag said list/normal sale price to be around $775. I think that was a fair price..
I haven't shot it yet but I am anxious.
I had a Kimber Ultra Crimson Carry on back order, getting tired of waiting for it, and already have a smaller carry gun. This gun is at least $500 cheaper, not counting all the assessories it comes with.
I would have probably bought the 40 but 1) they didnt have any, and 2) I have a Glock 27 (ultra compact 40) so figured this was a good choice for the range and I'll probably carry it also some times.
Let me know what you guys think and when I get to shoot it I'll report back.

Oh yeah.. weight is 32oz empty. and does not feel heavy at all.

Purchased new XDM 9mm

I just purchased my 1st handgun the XDM 9 about a month ago. I have put 200+ rounds through it without any malfunctions. It holds tight groups for me "novice shooter" I like the way it feels like a nature extension of my hand. I started to go with the Ruger SR9 since I qualify yearly with ruger P series however the gunshop after a month still had not got one in and he called me about the XDM and I couldnt be happier with it. I didnt like spending the extra $$$ but from what I have read I have a far better gun than the SR-9.

The guy who wrote this at defense review was about as objective as CNN on a war. Talk to any cop or marine they love the XD. The only reason they haven't switched is cause the old men love their Glocks and 1911s too much. XD is perfect, the M is a little goofy but it makes up for it and capacity. Like Einstein he was a weirdo but he made the A-bomb

If you point a gun to an enemy have the guts to pull the trigger, if you are just bluffing forget it.

Own the XDm in 9mm. Great gun! Fast follow up, minimal recoil. 'Two in the chest and one in the head and you won't be able to tell the difference between it and a .45' Too bad Cali is such a Liberal panzy state. Here in CO I got the 20 round capacity and it is GREAT!!!!!!!

XD 40

I got this gun for my bday and I have to say it is one of the smoothest firing weapons I have ever owned. First time out of the box I fired it indoors at 15 yards and every round was in the 10's.

Sarcastic people are just misunderstood.
