    At last weeks gun show I A-B handled the XD40 and the XDM40. With the default backstrap the XD40 feels better to my hand. Didn't get the opportunity to try the other XDM backstrap options, but the default backstrap worked best for me with the S&W M&P.

    The XD was running about $460, the XDM blue was $570 and the two-tone was $670 and $735. Way to much price premium initially for me to bite.

    there are some great videos on guntalk. i think that the xd is he best polymer handgun out there, and the "m factor" version of the xd makes it even better than it was before.

    First shot from mine was dead center in the bullseye @ 20 yards. Second shot turned that first hole into an oval. They are the ugliest handgun I have ever handled (I think all polymer guns are ugly), but I love shooting mine. The trigger is great, the swapable backstraps are neat, the dry fire-less field strip is really cool (better than the S&W M&P version), and there are a lot of other improvements. Did I mention it is accurate to the extreme?

    There's another thread running on this same topic; maybe moderators will merge them. For now, I'm quoting myself from that thread:

    "I just saw it in person yesterday at "The Gun Store Las Vegas" (which incidentally is a great place to visit). The person helping me was quite friendly and even let me dry fire it. The trigger pull is maybe a little shorter and crisper than a regular XD, but not by much. (I own an XD9) The feel of revised checking/texturing of the grip was, similarly, slightly improved but no big difference, and the slide serrations were such a minor change that I didn't notice any real difference in feel. IMHO the major benefit of "M" is that the .40 mags hold 16 rounds, which is a lot for a .40, especially since the gun seems nearly the same size as the original XD40. Probably a great gun, but evolutionary rather than revolutionary. I agree that it is probably aimed mostly at the law enforcement market."

    Man, I'm really liking the XDm, from the looks of it! I hope they put out a 9mm version.

    Welcome to THR, jece! I would suggest starting another thread about the P-01, as opposed to drifting another thread. It's all good, though. :)
