As the gunner threads are all a buzz with speculaiton about the Springfield Armory XD-M, and whether or not they find it “pleasing to the eye,” I’ve decided to continue to help the hype. I must admit, when I first laid eyes on the XD-M I was pretty shocked at the changes. I love the scalopped slide, but wasn’t so sure about the grip. It’s grown on me and I think as soon as they release a .45 ACP version, I’m going to want one pretty badly. It’s a good thing I’m in the market for a new .45. If they release an XD-M 45 Compact – I’m sold!
Here are some pictures. I got them from the Springfield Armory website, so you could go there, but since you’re already here… I have ZERO ownership of these pictures and do not claim ownership!!!
