just bought one. best gun i have ever owned. second best is my XD40....
good guns for the money and very popular with gun buyers.
I became prejudice against them many years ago when they pretended to be made in America.
at the pretty gun lock! nice set up
I plan on getting this exact set up when I get home, the S&W M&P Compact .40 will have to wait.
anybody know why they don't make this in a .45?
they do make it in a 45 acp
as far as I know, its still only available in .40. you know this is an XDM... not just an XD, right?
I second that Reaper
maybe they'll offer it later?
Looks like a great weapon. I have heard nothing but good things about the new Springfield line of pistols. The only thing stopping me from getting one is I already got a .45ACP Sig P220. A better pistol in my opinion, but opinions don't mean shit.
put an XD in your hand then you will quickly see what we see
New here, is the XD(M) 9mm out?
the xdm 9mm is out.I think everyone is waiting for the.45 to come out
how strong is the recoil on the .40?
consider it too much different from a 9mm,in my experience. My wife shoots my XD40 better than she shoots her 9mm, and does not think the recoil is heavier.
These observations involve an XD40SC versus a Taurus PT111 Millenium Pro
with my experience i have found that my XDm40 has lighter felt recoil than my XD40. may be just the difference from gun to gun, but i think it
has a lot to do with the improvements in the XDm. i also can tell a difference in the recoil with both XD's being lighter than my 9mm Taurus.
again, maybe it has to do with the quality of machining, recoil spring, balance of slide, etc. but there is a difference.
I have a xd 9mm ported pistol and love it. Shoots well. Hope there isnt a lot of arguement about who's bullet is bigger.
I just got one a couple weeks ago. LOVE IT. It shoots sweet
XDm 9mm or Xd45 ACP. Opinions? I want to target shoot, and like that the bullets are cheaper for the 9mm. Any advice will help.
Just a hint, You may want to make another account...One that doesn't display your e-mail address as your name. Don't need that think floating out there.
If you want a gun with better stopping power, you should go with the .45 ACP. The rounds are more expensive, but if you are gonna carry it for defensive purposes, you need to spend some quality trigger time with it. The 9mm is a fine weapon, but lacks stopping power. Just look at some of the stats of shoot outs that occur between law enforcement agents carrying 9mm vs. those carrying .45's. In a great deal of fire fights, the perp's are able to continue coming toward the officer while being shot with the 9mm. .45's don't have this problem for the most part. If you pop someone in the chest with a .45, chances are he is going down. With a 9mm...maybe, maybe not. It is the difference between getting hit with a claw hammer as opposed to a Sledge hammer. You might get hurt with either one, but which one will hurt worse?
FOR TARGET SHOOTING...I SAY GO WITH THE 9MM..WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY CHEAPER.
XDM (.40 S/W) I have only had it for a couple weeks, but it already tops my list of favs. This is really sweet little shooter. Great ergonomics, easy field strip, nice accessories. What more could you want? Is it as reliable as the Glocks? Time will tell, but I wouldn't bet against it.
i cant wait till they come out with a full line of the xdm all calibers and sizes, i'd be half tempted to get an xdm compact .45 in trade for my xd compact .45
. . . to split the diff. for my GF's personal protection she has a S&W 4606 9mm but we elected to go with 147 grain jhp. My belief is a double tap to the chest with a pair of them will give anyone the strong desire to go down AND stay down. and if not. . . .well i guess the 10 clipmates loaded with the first 2 will remove all doubt. still we have been looking at the XDm and its soooo hard not to drool.
Nice gun I want one!!
just as soon as that tax refund check gets here. Benton Shooters Supplies, hold the door for me. I'm bringin' cash! XDm40...you will soon be mine! Now all I have left to do is pick the color...black, olive, black slide, stainless slide...choices, choices...hmmmmm.
One question though: Does it come with this case and all this stuff or is that extra?
I can answer my own question. It does come with all this stuff. Way cool! I am definately getting one now.
that is the color of choice.
I wish I would have waited and bought this. I like my XD but this one is really nice.
I love this weapon.
But what do yall think It's better than the Beretta 92f, never thought about getting rid of it untill seeing this
im gonna say way better.ive shot the reguler xd 9mm and it was sweet, but the xdm is supposed to shoot 10 times better than that!!!!great reviews and a lifetime warranty.
After putting 1k through my xdm 40 i found that the trigger was the biggest anoyance witht he weapon. Although still a great pistol I found myself breaking left at the trigger break. I installed a Springer custom trigger kit (trigger bar, trigger spring, seer, seer spring), I was able to do all the gun smithing nescessary using a dremel tool stone polishing stone and the internet so it's very possible and the performance is amazing. Night and day. The reviews are all good for this weapon and as an owner I just wanted to offer my two cents in the matter. Trigger feel after custom work is comprable to kimber custom II.
Those Springfield XD series pistols are reliable pistols that are very accurate. I haven't had any problems with the trigger pull on them. The only down side I've found with them is sight replacement. For those that haven't changed the sights on one, your in for a surprise. Springfield recommends returning the pistol and the sights you want on it to them for replacement, at a fee (I think $65.00 was the cost when I called a couple of years ago). Springfield told me that the sights are a pressed on and pressed off part. I think the guy I spoke with said they use a 40 ton press to put the sights on the slides with. On the XD pistol I replaced the sights on, I finally got the old ones off with a punch and a hammer and the new night sights put on it. The front sight has a screw that has to be loosened before it can be removed. A sight pusher won't remove the sights on the XD series. The new sights went on a lot easier than the old ones came off. If you don't plan on keeping the removed sights that you take off, you can cut them off with a dremil tool. It's a lot easier and faster than the punch and hammer way I did it, or you can pay Springfield to do it.
going price? Is Springfield bringing out newer models?
Do they offer conversion kit for the 40 to shoot 9mm?
I will own thee soon. I promise thee.
Is now available in .45 ACP buying one real soon. Check out http://www.the-m-factor.com/ just a fyi
i ordered one of these....should be in in a couple days! cant wait!!!
I am verry proud of the fact that croatian pistol have succes in USA.
Good shooting to all owners:)
Nobile, didn't someone once try to argue with you that it is an American pistol? I seem to recall that. Pretty funny, arguing with a Croatian about where the XD is made.
This is(HS and XDM) croatian pistols, made in Croatia :)
Factory is in town Karlovac, 50 km near Zagreb, capitol of Croatia.
Bouught the wife a XDM 9mm 19+1 Duracoat in pink at the local gun shop, they could't sell it at the gun shows, don't know why, but paid 1bill under cost! I shoot it more then her, everyone laughs at the range, me shooting a pink gun! Love it, I need to get one in .45. now the hard part cost, hope they paint another one in pink! as far as the Beretta Uh won't get rid of the 92f! still a toss up and I like my Sig 1911 the stopping power of the .45 is about 1 shot to 3 on the 9mm, but like I told the wife dump the whole clip reload and then call 911!
