My Favorite Firearm
I own quite a few firearms including a Smith & Wesson 1911 E-Series. While the S&W is a superior firearm in every respect, the XDM has become my favorite gun due to its high capacity mag. I started looking for a 9mm because they have good stopping power and are considerably cheaper to operate than the .45. After testing several at the range, I finally got my hands on the XDM. My search was over. It is everything I wanted & then some. As with any firearm, the first consideration should be accuracy. This is a VERY accurate gun. But then again, so were some of the other guns I tested. So, I started considering other features. I really like the Melonite coating. I considered the S&W M&P series for that very reason. Since this is going to be primarily used for home defense, the rail is a nice touch. The grip is extremely comfortable, and the interchangeable backstraps make the XDM very customizable. Finally, the deep serrations make the slide very easy to operate. Once I decided on the XDM, the only thing left was to decide which model. The 3.8" was never a consideration. I wanted a full size gun. I considered the 5.25" in case I ever decided to shoot competitively, but I ultimately decided on the 4.50". It is easier to conceal and feels more balanced in my hand. I don't have many rounds through it yet, so my operating results are preliminary at best. But so far, the XDM has been extremely accurate, and I don't have any issues to report such as failures to feed or eject. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this gun to anyone looking for a good home defense firearm.

Great Gun for Range And Self-Defense
I purchased the Springfield Armory XDM 40 3.8 with the bi-tone stainless slide. As a female shooter, I am very pleased with this firearm. It is extremely accurate out-of-the-box and the recoil isn't snappy at all. I not only enjoy shooting this gun at the range- I also carry it as my primary concealed carry firearm.

I have the XDM 4.5 version of this firearm and it is wonderful. Unlike another make and caliber of firearm that I have purchased and which jammed every few rounds, this one works without a problem with several hundred rounds fired. There have been no fail to eject errors and it is a highly accurate firearm.
The two 16 round magazines which came with it are convenient and a blast to shoot without reloading as often.
I would recommend this to anyone.
