    Haha my HK .40sw compact is my carry , .45 will be in a 1911 flavor if I can ever figure out which one so that left me desiring something in 9mm for target shooting. This will do nicely I think. I saw a lot of people hoping for a compact .45

    Hmm. Not a 10mm. Guess I'll have to keep waiting.

    And waiting.

    The last major 10mm design was the Glock 29...14 years ago. Good luck with that.

    STI makes a 1911 "Perfect 10", but it is a full size long slide 1911. You can click the link. 14+1 for capacity.

    I have read that the street price on this will be in the $1200+ range. I would like one but for that price I could have a couple glocks and still have money to burn.

    Long Video, makes you envious, or it did that for me. Looks to be a great gun,

    Actually, I was hoping for an XDM in 10mm. I've got a couple of DEs and a Kimber in 10mm to cover the 1911 form factor area, as well as an assortment of other 10s, but I think I'd like to try one in an XD form factor.

    Looks like a great gun, if it shoots as good as shown in the vid, heck its a contender.

    I agree it would seem a good form factor for it, but I wonder if the design would accommodate a longer cartridge like the 10MM

    Seems like nice target gun. But, I just can't get over the look of it.

    Further reading and poking around seems to point to a MSRP between $700 and 800. Springfield still has not yet released pricing info as of yet. Hopefully the street price on these will be closer to $650

    My local dealer has them in blue for $694.13. With a Stainless Steel slide for $748.53. His prices are lower than most. For me, for this gun, that seems high. He sells Glock 34's for $572.29. That's a full $121.84 more for the blued Springfield. Springfield is creeping well into H&K pricing territory with this weapon. For me that is simply too much. You must keep in mind when Springfield bought the rights to the HS-2000, which is the original Springfield XD, it sold everywhere for $250.00, and no one wanted it. It just shows you what good advertising, along with a $5 molded plastic holster will do for sales. Bill T.

    Too spendy!

    The 5.25" XDm should be an excellent pistol.

    I'm anxious to see how people compare this new model to the M&P Pro. The Hickock45 video mentioned above sure made it look like a sweet shooter. I'm all for more great guns coming out. Hopefully it'll push the prices down with some rebates or extra goodies when you buy.

    Went to Impact Guns in Boise and put 50 rounds through the gun. I have to say I loved it very accurate at 25 yards and no recoil to speak of. I mostly carry a Walther PPS in 40 and also switch off with a Glock 23. Would love to shoot the 4.5 40. Might have to sell the 23!
