Springfield XDM Range Report

Picked up a bi-tone XDM in 9mm last week and took her to the range for the first time this morning. All my other pistols are Colt 1911s or my single BHP, so the grip angle on the XDM was immediately familiar. I picked it up mainly as a carry weapon for a bike trip coming up later this week. A bit lighter than my "real" pistols, and 20 round capacity sure sounds good to me.

Without any particular extra care, big ragged holes at 10 yards were very easy to produce. Even at 15 yards, slightly larger ragged holes were produced. Save for the few odd trigger yanks (my fault) she shoots very nicely. I can't shoot her as straight as my 1911s yet. I can, however, already shoot her better than my stock '86 BHP.

I can't imagine anyone wouldn't e tickled pink with an XDM in any flavor.

YMMV,

I added an XD-M 9x19 to my collection of XD's a couple of weeks ago. I've only had one opportunity to take it to the range, but the very first round at 15 yards was a center X. It's a very accurate handgun and like you mention, holding 20 rounds isn't bad, either.

I'm going to try to get some time at the range with it later this week.

Hope this helps.

Used a friend's XDM40 it's first day out and was quite impressed. I have an XD45T and the M series has much better fit & finish as you might expect, but a lot better that a mere $75 or so difference in price would suggest. Very accurate, similar recoil if a bit more 'snappy'; seems like an XD45M would be a great idea given how smooth it is already.
