    I'm thinking seriously about trying to build up the grip on my XDm so that my finger doesn't "over-reach" the trigger. (Hand too big / grip too small). I'm considering something like Bondo, or even JB Weld, or ??????

    Has anyone out there tried anything similar? Details? Suggestions?

    Thanx........

    If it were mine I would use a Hogue grip sleeve, being sure it does not impinge on the grip safety.

    While I have not tried it myself - nor would I - I see no reason why you could not use a variation of the method used to do Glock grip reductions. Trowel on layers of epoxy until you get the approximate dimensions you want, file it to shape and texture it, then paint it. Of course, if it turns out poorly or not as expected, you just ruined your frame, or at least the grip insert.
