    I am curious if there was anyone else that is Intrested in Springfield Armory making a XDm 45 ACP? I am leaning more toward the Compact version, Or a Sub - Compact version would be GREAT as well. But has anyone else ever wanted a XDm 45?

    XD owners have been waiting for this. I'm not sure why Springfield chose to make the useless 3.8" instead of making a .45 XdM. It boggles my mind.

    HAHA, I to kinda figured the 3.8 was not useful. After all it is only about 1/2 " shorter. I would love to see the XDm 45 Compact, I love my XD Compact, And would own the XDm 45 Compact as well. Or do something they never done before, And bring the more powerful 10MM into the mix. But I would much rather it be a 45 ACP.

    I am waiting to see how many rounds a XDm in 45acp holds.

    Para 15, Glock & XD 13, H&K USP 12, Sig P250, H&K45, S&WMP 10....

    I also was waiting for the Sig P250, H&K45, & S&W MP but lost interest at 10 round capacity. Sig finally makes a 45 double stack magazine gun and then limits it to 10!!! Thank goodness Para is around.

    Many others love the XD and now the XDm lines. I like them but am not holding my breath any longer.

    I'm satisfied with my xd45C but a 4" barrel isn't all that compact. If I decide to go compact I'll probably buy a G26.

    If Springfield was to make a XDm 45, I would like a Compct version. Something like the XD Compact, Magazine should hold 10 Rounds. The 13 Round Magazine, the Grip is just way to big. I would like something like the XD Compact that I have, Just a XDm Version.

    The XD Compact is a Compact, It is a little big, But it is a 45 so that is going to have to be bigger then a 9x19, or a 40 S&W. And the Glock 26 is a Sub - Compact, So that is a completly different ball game. But if Springfield was to come out with a XDM that was something like the Glock 30, That would make me just as happy.

    The perfect gun Springfield needs to come out with,

    1) 3 - 4" BBL

    2) 10 Round Magazine, They can also have an option for a 13 Round Magazine. I just want the 10 Rounders.

    3) 5" Grip

    4) Factory Night Sights

    5) Front, and Rear Serrations

    6) (3) Magazines

    I've been waiting for Springfield to come out with an XDM in .45 ACP but alas and alack they have not. Kind of like the changeable backstrap idea. Haven't tried an XDM in .40 cal but might think about it.

    If anyone is intrested in the XDm 45, Send a Emial to them. I just sent them a Email, And they said " We haven`t had enough Intrest in it yet". So if you are intrested in it, Please Email them, I can supply the link to contact if needed. Lets put some fire under the ars, and get the XDm 45 in production.

    That would be fine with me, As long as Springfield makes the XDm in a 45. It wouldn`t matter the Barrel length, But I would ant the Grip to be the same as the XD Compact.

    I think it would be great if they made one. The XDm line is awesome. I'd like to also see them put out an XDm 10mm, but that'll probably never happen.

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news... measure the size of the 9mm and .40S&W XDM frames and then measure the XD45 frames. You'll notice they are the same size... because they are the same frame. You won't see an XDM45 coming out for that general reason. It would be essentially a match grade XD45.

    A 9mm and a 40 is not the sameFrame of the 45, A 45 Frame is going to be bigger. And I do have a feeling that Springfield will be coming out with a XDm 45 soon, It took a while for the XD Compact 45 to hit production. So it may take awhile to get off of the line, But I have confidence in Springfield coming out with the XDm 45 sooner or later.

    You are missing what I am saying. The XDM's are the XD45's grip size, just in a different caliber, hence the large capacity. An XDM in 45ACP will not have their biggest appeal... higher capacity.

    OH, If Springfield was to come out with the XDm the same exact size as the XD the first one. That would make me very happy, I am wanting the XDm Compact 45. I dont want a Magazine capacity of 13 or more, I would be happy with the 10 round Magazines. If it is the EXACT SAME SIZE as the first XD produced then that would be great.

    Or if they made something that was smaller the first XD Compact, That would be great to. So if they do come out with a XDm, The Length needs to be NO bigger then 7", and the Height of the gun needs to be NO more then 5". But if they want to make it smaller then them dimensions, that would work out just as well.
