It has a curved trigger guard that gives a little extra place to put your finger if you want.


The finish holds up very well. It can be carried every day for years in a Kydex holster and only have a little shine and scuff on some prominent parts.


The magazine capacity of your XDM depends on the caliber and varies from 9 to 19 rounds. Magazine capacity is another factor to consider before buying a gun. It determines the shots you get before the necessity to change an empty mag.


The price of Springfield Armory XDM pistols varies depending on the caliber. It’s not the cheapest pistol out there, but (!) its price fairly corresponds to the feature you get with this handgun.
