Looks like Springfield has announced it's happening and some places are already taking pre-orders.
The LGS here has one on display..........it feels very nice. I bet it shoots good too.
Can't wait for the XDm 45 to be available to purchase. Has anyone seen any preliminary pricing?
If it shoots as good as the XDm 9mm that I shot, they are going to have a huge winner on their hands.
best auto I ever owned, Bar none.
Since this tread started I have shot the .45acp XDm and I like the trigger a lot better on it. It's better than the old XD.
Good to hear the positives. I just ordered mine today and should get it next week.
I just bought mine a week ago and LOVE it. It's everything I ever wanted in a 45 ACP. It handles great and shoots like a dream. I highly recommend it.
Well, I just picked mine up today and was even there to open it "fresh" out of the box. Now I just have to go to the range and see for myself.
I have a bid on one of these right now on Gunbroker. I'm hoping to replace my duty weapon with it. It's a very nice feeling and well balanced firearm. I hope I win.
Well, I got some ammo and found some time to go out into the desert in the sagebrush to shoot a little. (That's the only range available. ) Here are a couple of targets at 10 yards. This first target is of my first shots out of my new gun...
This next target is my 45 but also my LCP (six rounds) in the top right corner (I was shooting for that corner; because the rest of the target was full ). Some of the other holes are from previous shooting I did.
I think I was not using enough index finger on the trigger while shooting my 45. I'll need to make some adjustments for next time.

Thanks for the advice Bisley. I think I'm also pushing the shot down because I'm anticipating the recoil. I know I've got to work on some techniques.
I just got my XDM 45 about a month and a half ago and I absolutely love it. Feels even better than any of my regular XD's. I've got an XD 40 service in bi-tone, and an XD 40 subcompact, and the XDM 45 is also a bi-tone.
