Springfield XDM9384CBHC XD(M) Compact 16+1/11+1 40S&W 3.8"
by Jason P Date Added: Monday 19 March, 2012
I just purchased a Springfield XDM 40 cal 3.8 Compact Black. Great price-thanks to Buds!!!! This is the first pistol I ever bought and I am still a novice in the world of hand guns. However, I did my research including shooting an XD compact 9 mm and 40 cal as well as several other gun makers before making any decision. I am the “researching” type of person for sure, especially for my first handgun. The last time I was at the range was 20+ years ago as a teenager with my father. Two weeks ago, I went to the range and fired the XD compact and it fit so well in my hand and the results showed immediately. I researched online to obtain feedback from those that own the new XDM 40 cal compact and all was positive. Boom! I knew I have found my first handgun! I submitted my order on a Tuesday afternoon and it was delivered to my FFL dealer on Friday! Wow! That was fast Bud!!!! I picked it up on Saturday and immediately went to the range and fired 150 rounds (Used Federal and Winchester FMJ rounds). It was flawless and accurate right out of the box!!!! I was so impressed with the feel of the pistol and most importantly the accuracy! I used both magazines that came with it (The compact and xtension) and both were as expected. This pistol is exactly what I wanted it for. One pistol--_ that can be used for conceal & carry (Compact mag), home protection (xtension mag), and target practice to improve my skills. I have average size hands and the grip was very good. I still need to play with the diff back straps to see which fits me best. Another plus is it comes with 3 sizes to choose from! I tried the Glock-S&W-Sig (Can't remember which models but it was a compact) but it didn't fit me as well as the XDM, didn’t have the flexibility options, nor was I as accurate with them. Now, here is a novice review or initial impression. The slide as well as the release of the magazines were tight initially but seemed to “loosen” up a bit after firing my 150 rounds. The mag release still isn’t as smooth/easy as I would like but I assume that is to be expected when it is brand new. Trigger/Recoil- A little heavy but smooth and I did well with re-acquiring my target after each shot. Sights-Seemed perfect out of the box. Appearance-Solid, This pistol is mean looking, sharp-love it! I know appearance has no bearing on performance but there is something to be said for it. I shot ALL rounds within the “9” on the C&C qualifying target from 10+ yards out. I know, not very far but remember, I am new and haven’t shot a pistol in 20 years and I would easily qualify for my C&C and be accurate within the most common range of home intrusions/personal safety situations. In summary, this pistol feels great in my hand, has various customization options that come with it, is accurate, and reliable (so far and based on many others feedback). The ordering process was easy and the service representative was terrific-answered all my questions. Honest and accurate. My XDMI love it and would recommend to everyone!
