    Passing this along from one of our advertisers.

    [FONT=&quot]It’s finally here![/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]Requests have been pouring in, and now the XD(M)® 3.8 Compact is available in .45ACP.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]Since we introduced the XD(M)® Compact in 9mm and .40, our Customer Service department has been swamped with requests for a .45 version. So, we’ve been frantically developing an amazing product that combines concealability and high capacity, with a big bullet, that, like all XD® and XD(M)® models[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]focuses on Point & Shoot Ergonomics™. [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]The genius of the XD(M)® Compact design is that it doubles as a full-size frame model with the use of the XD(M) Gear® Mag X-Tension™ (US Pat. 7191556) that offers a full-capacity back-up magazine. It’s also a great range option for people that don’t want to have to buy both a CCW, and a range pistol.[/FONT]

    Anyone know if this is the same width (and uses the same magazines) as the XD45?
    One of the few double stack 45s that fit my mits without feeling like I'm holding a brick.
